We have previously shown correlations between cardiovascular risk factors such as blood pressure (BP), sympathetic nervous system activity, lipids and insulin resistance in young men with elevated screening BP. In the present study we aimed to: (1) compare the genotype distribution and allele frequencies of 11 polymorphisms in seven candidate genes for BP regulation in healthy 21-year-old Caucasian men, between 18 men with normal and 67 men with high screening BP, and (2) evaluate the effect of… CONTINUE READING
