H ypertension is not only the most modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease and stroke but also a hallmark of obesity, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic syndrome. 1 Despite recent advances in pharmacotherapy and widespread adoption of lifestyle changes, prevalence of hypertension remains high. By some estimates, the prevalence of resistant hypertension is ≈10% to 15% among the hypertensive patient population. Treatment-resistant hypertension is characterized by high norepinephrine… Expand

Exercise induction of gut microbiota modifications in obese, non-obese and hypertensive rats
Examination of gut microbial composition in Obese rats, non-obese Wistar rats and Spontaneously Hypertensive rats indicated that non-Obese and hypertensive rats harbor a different gut microbiota from obese rats and that exercise training alters gut microbiotaFrom an obese and hypert Offensive genotype background. Expand
Diabetes, obesity and gut microbiota.
Putative mechanisms linking gut microbiota and type 2 diabetes are discussed and the advantage of investigating and changing the gut microbiota as a therapeutic target in the context of obesity and type 1 diabetes is underline. Expand
Hypertension in Metabolic Syndrome: Vascular Pathophysiology
The role of sympathetic tone is discussed, the importance of perivascular adipose tissue and the role of adipokines that possess vasoactive properties are discussed, and the link between endothelial dysfunction and IR is examined. Expand
Altered Inflammatory Response Is Associated With an Impaired Autonomic Input to the Bone Marrow in the Spontaneously Hypertensive Rat
Observations demonstrate that a dysfunctional BM autonomic nervous system is associated with imbalanced EPCs and ICs in hypertension. Expand
Replication of Obesity and Associated Signaling Pathways Through Transfer of Microbiota From Obese-Prone Rats
Aberrations in gut microbiota are associated with metabolic disorders, including obesity. However, whether shifts in the microbiota profile during obesity are a characteristic of the phenotype or aExpand
Plasma lactate and incident hypertension in the atherosclerosis risk in communities study.
Plasma lactate is associated with incident hypertension in women, especially with a normal blood pressure, and when the population was restricted to participants with normalBlood pressure, the association was strong in women vs. men. Expand
Brain-Mediated Dysregulation of the Bone Marrow Activity in Angiotensin II–Induced Hypertension
Data demonstrate that inhibition of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species attenuates angiotensin II–induced hypertension and corrects the imbalance in EPCs/ICs in the BM, and suggest that an imbalance in vascular reparative and ICs may perpetuate vascular pathophysiology in this model of hypertension. Expand
Gut microbiota: a source of novel tools to reduce the risk of human disease?
The hypothesis that targeting early interaction with microbes might offer an applicable strategy to prevent disease is supported and maternal microbiota may prove to be a safe and effective target for interventions decreasing the risk of allergic and noncommunicable diseases in future generations.

The prevalence of obesity and related disorders such as metabolic syndrome has vastly increased throughout the world, and dietary composition and caloric intake appear to swiftly regulate intestinal microbial composition and function. Expand
Intestinal permeability, gut-bacterial dysbiosis, and behavioral markers of alcohol-dependence severity
It was shown that alcohol-dependent subjects with altered intestinal permeability had also altered gut-microbiota composition and activity and remained with high scores of depression, anxiety, and alcohol craving after a short-term detoxification program, consistent with the existence of a gut–brain axis in alcohol dependence.
