BACKGROUND Several cross-sectional studies have reported a positive association between plasma fibrinogen levels and prevalent hypertension. Other studies have reported a positive association between hypertension and whole-blood or plasma viscosity, to which fibrinogen contributes. To our knowledge, there has been no prospective study of fibrinogen and incident hypertension. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We measured plasma fibrinogen levels in a population-based cohort study of middle-aged adults and… CONTINUE READING
