HYPOTHESIS/INTRODUCTION Preeclampsia is associated with alterations in the maternal renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), increased blood pressure (BP), and cardiovascular risk in the offspring. We hypothesized that preeclampsia is associated with alterations in the RAAS in the offspring that persist into adolescence. MATERIALS AND METHODS We compared components of the circulating (n = 111) and renal (n = 160) RAAS in adolescents born prematurely with very low birth weight (VLBW) of… CONTINUE READING
