OBJECTIVE Non-dipper hypertensives had about three times the risk of atherosclerotic events than hypertensives whose blood pressure was >10% lower at night compared to daytime (dippers). Platelet activation and inflammatory response may derive from most atherosclerotic events. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a determinant of platelet activation and high sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is the best candidate assay to identify and monitor the inflammatory response. We aimed to determine… CONTINUE READING
