Adrenomedullin (AM) and atrial and brain natriuretic peptides (ANP and BNP) exert vasodilator and natriuretic actions and are thought to share roles in counteracting the progression of hypertension or heart failure as circulating or locally-acting hormones. However, little data is available with regard to their roles in subjects who have no apparent cardiovascular diseases. The present study was carried out to identify the factors that affect plasma levels of AM, ANP and BNP in the general… CONTINUE READING
