RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Hypertension is an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and cognitive function. Blood pressure (BP) variability has been associated with cognitive dysfunction, but data are sparse regarding the relationship between BP variability and cognitive function in geriatric patients with well-controlled BP. AIM: The aim of this study was to demonstrate the relationship between blood pressure variability and cognitive functions in geriatric hypertensive patients with well-controlled BP. METHOD: We analyzed 435 hypertensive patients (167 male, 74.9 ± 8.3; 268 female, 76.1 ± 8.6) treated at least with one antihypertensive drug. All patients underwent ambulatory BP monitoring and the standardized mini mental test (sMMT). RESULTS: We divided the weighted standard deviation (SD) of systolic BP (SBP) as a measure of BP variability into quartiles. The top quartile group (≥ 18.5 mmHg) had a significantly lower total sMMT score (23.3 ± 3.2, p < 0.001). According to the results of multivariate logistic regression analysis for sMMT, the SD of 24-h SBP was related to sMMT (p = 0.007, 95% confidence interval - 0.301 [- 0.370 to - 0.049]). DISCUSSION: Although there are some inconsistencies among the studies investigating the relationship between blood pressure variability and cognitive functions in elderly patients, we demonstrated the relationship between increased 24-h blood pressure variability and cognitive functions assessed with sMMT in geriatric population with well-controlled BP. CONCLUSION: The increased blood pressure variability was associated with poorer cognitive functions in geriatric hypertensive patients with well-controlled blood pressure.

RESUMO

As a modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease, presence of hypertension (HT) necessitates the awareness of asymptomatic organ damage (AOD). The aim of this study was to measure plasma micro RNA-21 (miR-21) and the parameters that reflect AOD such as carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), microalbuminuria (MAU) in hypertensive patients compared with healthy controls. In addition, the aim of this study was to evaluate plasma miR-21 levels in HT patients with AOD.This study was designed as a cross-sectional observational study. The study includes 2 groups: 32 patients with HT and 32 healthy controls. First, we compared these 2 groups. Then, to underline the relationship between plasma miR-21 and HT, hypertensive patients were divided into 2 groups: with AOD and without AOD.Sixteen patients with HT had AOD. MiR-21 levels significantly correlated with clinical systolic and diastolic blood pressure, MAU, C-reactive protein, and CIMT. CIMT, miR-21, and MAU levels were significantly higher in patients with AOD.Our study showed increased miR-21 levels in HT patients with AOD.

RESUMO

There is considerable evidence that oxidative DNA damage is increased, DNA repair capacity is decreased in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Base excision repair is the major pathway in removal of oxidative DNA damage. 8-oxo-deoxyguanosine DNA glycosylase 1 (OGG1) is the enzyme which is involved in the first step of this repair process. Alterations in DNA repair capacity may be related with polymorphisms in DNA repair genes. In order to investigate the effect of OGG1 Ser326Cys polymorphism on oxidative DNA damage level, OGG1 genotyping was performed, basal and oxidative DNA damage in lymphocytes and 8-OHdG level in plasma were examined in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Basal and oxidative DNA damage and 8-OHdG level were measured by OGG1-modified comet assay and enzyme-linked immunoassay, respectively. OGG1 genotyping was performed by polymerase chain reaction- restriction fragment length polymorphism assay. Basal and oxidative DNA damage and plasma 8-OHdG levels were found to be higher in the Alzheimer's disease group than those in the control group (P < 0.001). In the Alzheimer's disease group, the levels of oxidative DNA damage was higher in the patients having OGG1 (Ser326Cys + Cys326Cys) genotype than those in the patients having OGG1 Ser326Ser genotype. It was concluded that oxidative DNA damage is increased in patients with Alzheimer's disease and OGG1 Ser326Cys polymorphism may be responsible for this increase.

RESUMO

TMPRSS6 gene mutations can result in iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and cause an increased iron-regulatory hormone, hepcidin, levels. TMPRSS6 encodes a serine protease, matriptase-2, which functions as negative regulatory protein of hepcidin transcription. Thus, TMPRSS6 variations might be risk factors for IDA. The aim of the study was to investigate the association of rs855791, rs4820268, rs5756506, rs2235324, rs2413450, rs2111833, rs228919, and rs733655 SNPs in TMPRSS6 gene with IDA susceptibility and iron-related clinical parameters. The study consisted of 150 IDA patients and 100 healthy controls. We analyzed the genotype distributions by using Real-Time polymerase chain reaction (Real-Time PCR) technique. We did not find any statistically differences for all SNPs between patients and controls (P > 0.05). In IDA patients, variations rs855791 and rs2413450 were associated with increased RBC (P = 0.03) and TIBC (P = 0.04), respectively. Also, increased of TIBC for rs4820268 (P < 0.05). On the other hand, in control group, rs5756506 was associated with two parameters, Hb (P = 0.02) and Hct (P = 0.03). We did not find markedly hepcidin levels in IDA patients compared to controls (P = 0.32). Our findings suggest that TMPRSS6 variations may not be risk factors for IDA. However, TMPRSS6 polymorphisms are associated with increased many iron-related hematological parameters.

RESUMO

The aim of the current study was to compare oxidative DNA damage, DNA susceptibility to oxidation, and ratio of GSH/GSSG in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) treated with acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) and combined AChEI+memantine. The study included 67 patients with AD and 42 volunteers as control. DNA damage parameters (strand breaks, oxidized purines, H2O2-induced DNA damage) in lymphocyte DNA and GSH/GSSG ratio in erythrocytes were determined by the comet assay and spectrophotometric assay, respectively. DNA damage was found to be higher, GSH/GSSG ratio was found to be lower in the AD group than those in the control group. DNA strand breaks and H2O2-induced DNA damage were lower in the patients taking AChEI+memantine than those in the patients taking AChEI but no significant difference was determined between the groups for oxidized purines and GSH/GSSG ratio. In conclusion, increased systemic oxidative DNA damage and DNA susceptibility to oxidation may be resulted from diminished GSH/GSSG ratio in AD patients. Although DNA strand breaks and H2O2-induced DNA damage are lower in the AD patients treated with combined AChEI and memantine, this may not indicate protective effect of memantine against DNA oxidation due to similar levels of oxidized purines in the patients treated with AChEI and AChEI+memantine.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: The present study compared the unfavorable effects of protein oxidation and deoxyribonucleic acid damage on patients with white coat hypertension (WCH), sustained hypertension (HT), and normotensives. METHODS: Participants were allocated into 3 groups: 40 healthy controls, 36 patients with WCH, and 40 patients with sustained HT. Patients with risk factors for atherosclerosis, endocrine diseases, alcoholism, or masked hypertension were excluded. Plasma level of protein carbonyl (PCO), ischemia modified albumin (IMA), total thiol (T-SH), prooxidant-antioxidant balance (PAB), advanced protein oxidation products (AOPPs), and urinary level of 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) were measured and relationship between these oxidative stress parameters and WCH and sustained HT was analyzed. RESULTS: Ambulatory 24-hour, daytime and night-time systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings of sustained HT group were significantly higher than those of WCH and control groups (p<0.001, all). AOPPs, PCO, IMA, 8-OHdG, and PAB levels were significantly higher in HT group than WCH and control groups (p<0.001, all). Additionally, T-SH level was significantly lower in HT group than WCH and control groups (p<0.001). A similar statistically significant relationship was detected between WCH and control groups. CONCLUSION: Results indicate that increased level of AOPPs, PCO, IMA, 8-OHdG, PAB, and decreased level of T-SH are likely to be indicators of oxidative stress, which may play a key role both in WCH and sustained HT.

RESUMO

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is the most frequent cause of acquired thrombocytopenia. In adult ITP patients, corticosteroids and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) are used as first-line treatment. The aim of the present study was to investigate retrospectively the demographic and etiologic characteristics of patients with ITP admitted to the emergency room at our hospital. Seventy-five adult patients with ITP were included, and demographic data, bleeding characteristics, etiologic features and responses to treatments were evaluated retrospectively. Fifty-six patients (75 %) were female, and the median age was 43 years. Eighteen patients had a history of ITP, whereas in 57, thrombocytopenia was identified for the first time. During admission, the median platelet count was 5 × 10(9)/L. Cutaneous and/or mucosal bleeding was the most common clinical feature. High-dose dexamethasone was administered in 60 episodes, whereas IVIg and conventional-dose methylprednisolone were used in nine and six episodes, respectively. The overall response rate of the entire cohort following first-line treatments was 67 %, and complete remission was achieved in 31 patients, 19 patients achieved partial remission, and 25 patients were non-responders. In cases with life-threatening bleeding, concomitant infection, post-traumatic bleeding and need for emergency surgery, IVIg can be used as the first line of treatment option in addition to platelet transfusions.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Although Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 is the common disease causing serogroup, rare serogroups can also may cause legionellosis. A 54-year-old male patient (index case) reported that he had been on a religious trip (for visiting, tomb of Ali, which is important for Shias) to Iraq with a large group (50 shia pilgrims from Kars city of Turkey) two weeks prior to admission. Due to civil war, the hotel where the patient stayed in Iraq lacked proper hygiene. A large number of people in the travel group were experiencing the same symptoms. Other five cases were 2 males (ages; 50, 45) and 3 females including the wife of the index case (ages; 50, 28, 27). METHOD: The detection of L. pneumophila IgG and IgM was performed by anti-L. pneumophila Indirect Immunofluorescent IgM, IgG kit. Legionella 1 biochip/verification BIOCHIP slides were used for serogrouping in Euroimmun AG, Leubeck, Germany. RESULTS: In index case, L. pneumophila IgM was positive with a titer of 1/32 titer. IgG was negative with a 1/100 titer. Another case (28 year old female), had clinical symptoms identical to the index case. L. pneumophila IgM and IgG were positive with titers of 1/64 and 1/100, respectively. These two cases were diagnosed with Legionnaires' disease caused by L. pneumophila serogroup 12 (index case) and female (28-year-old) by serogroup 11. The other 4 cases were diagnosed with possible Pontiac fever caused by L. pneumophila serogroups 14 (wife of the index case), 4, and 6 whereas the serogroup of L. pneumophila detected in 27 years old female case could not be identified. CONCLUSION: A major limitation of this work is the absence of genotyping and the serogroup difference between index case and his wife who shared the same hotel. We suggest that this serogroup difference may be caused by (for men and women) sitting separately in Islamic rules. On the other hand, the movement of people in the context of mutual visits between countries or neighboring countries for tourism-related (i.e., for religious events or visits to holy sites) or immigration-related reasons, may cause some epidemic diseases. This study reemphasized that not only L. pneumophila serogroup 1, but other rare serogroups might cause also legionellosis which may increase in frequency and cause regional epidemics. We propose that increased financial resources for improving the hygiene conditions and performing routine legionella surveillance studies in touristic hotels would be useful measures for legionellosis prevention and control.

RESUMO

The aim of this clinical study was to evaluate the influence of aging on the levels of lipid peroxidation (quantified as thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) content), lipid hydroperoxide (LOOH), hexanoyl lysine (HEL), 8-iso-prostaglandin F2α (8-iso-PGF2α) and total antioxidant capacity (TAC), and determine their relationships to the demographic and cardiovascular risk factors in elderly hypertensive (HT) patients. This study consisted of four groups: two elderly groups with 30 HT patients (11 males, 19 females) and 30 normotensive healthy volunteers (15 males, 15 females), and two young groups with 30 HT patients (13 males, 17 females) and 30 normotensive healthy volunteers (12 males, 18 females). In the elderly control group, the TBARS, LOOH, HEL and 8-iso-PGF2α levels, and the carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) were significantly higher than in the young control group. The TBARS, LOOH, HEL and 8-iso-PGF2α levels and the CIMT measurements were significantly higher in the elderly HT group than in the young HT group. In addition, the TAC levels were significantly lower in the elderly and young HT groups than in the elderly and young control groups. The CIMT was significantly positively correlated with TBARS (r=0.40, P<0.001), HEL (r= 0.30, P=0.001), LOOH (r= 0.44, P<0.001) and 8-iso-PGF2α (r= 0.32, P<0.001) in all of the HT groups. It seems that in elderly patients, the LOOH and TBARS are better biomarkers of lipid peroxidation in hypertension in terms of sensitivity. In all of the HT groups, 8-iso-PGF2α had the highest sensitivity. Hypertension is associated with lipid peroxidation due to an impaired oxidant/antioxidant status. Increased lipid peroxidation and decreased antioxidants with aging indicate that peroxidative damage further increases with higher blood pressure and the aging process.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: This study aimed to evaluate the role of protein oxidation and DNA damage in the elderly hypertensive (HT) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study consisted of four groups: two elderly groups with 30 HT patients and 30 normotensive healthy volunteers, and two young groups with 30 HT patients and 30 normotensive healthy volunteers. Plasma total thiol (T-SH), advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs), protein carbonyl (PCO), ischemia modified albumin (IMA), urine 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), and prooxidant-antioxidant balance (PAB) levels were measured. RESULTS: In the elderly HT group AOPPs, PCO, 8-OHdG, and PAB were significantly higher than the elderly control group. In the young HT group T-SH levels were significantly lower and the other oxidative stress parameters were significantly higher than the young control group. In the elderly control group AOPPs, PCO, IMA, 8-OHdG and PAB were significantly higher than the young control group. T-SH was significantly lower in the elderly control than the young control group. In the elderly HT group, T-SH levels were significantly lower and AOPPs, PCO, IMA, 8-OHdG, and PAB levels were significantly higher than the young HT group. CONCLUSION: Protein and DNA cell damage occurs by oxidation of free radicals throughout life. Our study supports the view that these radicals may be responsible for the development of hypertension with aging process. Urine 8-OHdG levels can be used as a marker for oxidative DNA damage in the elderly hypertensive patients. Finally, our results suggest that oxidative stress may influence both the development and progression of hypertension and aging.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship of miR-21, nitric oxide (NOx) and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) with subclinical atherosclerosis in carotid arteries by measuring carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) in patients with hypertension and healthy controls. DESIGN AND METHODS: A total of 28 hypertensive and 28 healthy controls were enrolled. MiR-21 expression was analyzed by quantitative reverse transcription-PCR and NOx, and eNOS levels were measured by ELISA assay. CIMT was evaluated by ultrasonography and CIMT ≥ 0.8 mm was accepted as increased CIMT (iCIMT). RESULTS: C-reactive protein (CRP) level, plasma miR-21 expression level and CIMT were found to be significantly higher in the hypertension group when compared to the control group (p = 0.009, p = 0.002 and p < 0.001, respectively). NOx and eNOS levels were significantly lower in the hypertension group compared to the control group (p < 0.001, both). MiR-21 level was positively correlated with the clinical systolic blood pressure, clinical diastolic blood pressure, CRP and CIMT. MiR-21 was also negatively correlated with NOx and eNOS. Eighteen patients with hypertension had iCIMT. MiR-21 and CRP levels were significantly higher (p < 0.001 and p = 0.001), whereas NOx and eNOS levels were significantly lower in patients with iCIMT (p < 0.001, both). CONCLUSION: The decreased levels of NOx and eNOS found in this study indicate the co-existence of endothelial dysfunction and hypertension once more. In the absence of microalbuminuria, the increased miR-21 expression in patients with iCIMT made us conclude that this miRNA might be involved in the early stages of atherosclerotic process in hypertensive patients.

RESUMO

White coat hypertension (WCH) is a high cardiovascular risk condition, and a fundamental understanding of the cause and pathophysiology of the disorder is still lacking. Recent studies demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in hypertension; however, the roles of miRNAs in WCH are not known. The expressions of selected 10 miRNAs were investigated independently in plasma samples from 30 hypertension (HT) patients, 30 WCH patients, and 30 normotensive (NT) subjects. MiR-21, miR-122, miR-637, and let-7e expression levels were significantly upregulated in the HT group compared with the NT groups (P = 0.017, P = 0.022, P = 0.048, and P = 0.013, respectively). MiR-122 and miR-637 expressions were also significantly upregulated in the WCH group compared with the NT group (P = 0.048 and P = 0.039, respectively). MiR-296-5p expression level was significantly downregulated in HT patients and upregulated in the WCH patients compared with the NT group (P = 0.049 and P = 0.039, respectively). Additionally, the ambulatory 24-hour and daytime systolic and diastolic blood pressures were negatively correlated with miR-296-5p. MiR-296 and miR-637 had area under the curve (AUC) values of 0.778 and 0.774, respectively, which demonstrates their sufficiency to distinguish WCH from NT individuals. MiR-296 and miR-637 had AUC values of 0.868 and 0.680, respectively, which shows their potential to distinguish WCH from HT individuals. We report for the first time a plasma miRNA profile for WCH patients and demonstrate a novel link between miRNA and WCH. These findings may reveal crucial insights into the development of WCH.
