Hyperuricemia on Hypertension and Metabolic Syndrome

2014-08-27 03:12:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the influence of hyperuricemia treatment compared with placebo on participants with high risk of hypertension and metabolic syndrome.

Description

Elevated consumption of high fructose corn syrup has lead to an increase of 30% of fructose intake since the last 20 years. Important data supporting this fact can be reflected on incidence and prevalence of Metabolic syndrome and hyperuricemia.

A peculiar effect of fructose intake demonstrated in animal models is the development of elevated uric acid levels; also some studies have found a clear association between hyperuricemia as an important risk factor for hypertension, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease and metabolic syndrome.

Taking into account the existing evidence, our clinical research team presents this protocol as a way to evaluate the effect of uric acid treatment and its relation with Fructose consumption, metabolic syndrome parameters, hyperuricemia and risk of hypertension.

Confirming evidence with clinical basis may be the initial strategy to create primary prevention programs to control this health problems affecting Mexican Population.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blood pressure levels that are between normotension and hypertension. Individuals with prehypertension are at a higher risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. Generally, prehypertension is defined as SYSTOLIC PRESSURE of 131-139 mm Hg and/or DIASTOLIC PRESSURE of 81-89 when the optimal is 120/80 mm Hg. For diabetics and other metabolism diseases the prehypertension is around 110-129/70-79 mm Hg.

Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.

An alpha-2 adrenergic agonist that crosses the blood-brain barrier. Clonidine acts centrally by reducing sympathetic tone, resulting in a fall in diastolic and systolic blood pressure and a reduction in heart rate. It also acts peripherally, and this peripheral activity may be responsible for the transient increase in blood pressure seen during rapid intravenous administration. (From Martindale, the Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p350)

A significant drop in BLOOD PRESSURE after assuming a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension is a finding, and defined as a 20-mm Hg decrease in systolic pressure or a 10-mm Hg decrease in diastolic pressure 3 minutes after the person has risen from supine to standing. Symptoms generally include DIZZINESS, blurred vision, and SYNCOPE.

A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
