THERE IS GROWING INTEREST in the potential role of inflammatory cytokines in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis, heart failure, and hypertension (7, 14–16). Although the role of cytokines in atherosclerosis is well established, the importance of cytokines in cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension has yet to be fully elucidated. One form of hypertension that is associated with increases in tissue and circulating levels of inflammatory cytokines is the… CONTINUE READING
