Increased Circulating Tissue Inhibitor of Metalloproteinase-2 Is Associated With Resistant Hypertension.

Abstract

Resistant hypertension (RH) is associated with organ damage and cardiovascular risk. Evidence suggests the involvement of matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2) and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 2 (TIMP-2) in hypertension and in cardiovascular remodeling. The aim of this study was to assess the levels of MMP-2 and TIMP-2 in RH and its relation with… (More)
