The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of lifestyle modification in reducing blood pressure values in Hispanics at risk for hypertension.
In this study participants (who have prehypertension as defined as systolic blood pressure - the upper number- 130-139 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure 85-89mmHg- the lower number-) are randomly assigned to one of two groups:
the Minimal Intervention Group- participants receive advice and printed guidelines only but no counseling or personalized instruction, or the Enhanced Intervention Group- participants receive advice and the same printed guidelines as the minimal intervention group, together with dietary and physical activity counseling provided by a dietician and/or coordinator, periodic professional reviews of their progress and personalized instructions.

Systems consisting of two enzymes, a modification methylase and a restriction endonuclease. They are closely related in their specificity and protect the DNA of a given bacterial species. The methylase adds methyl groups to adenine or cytosine residues in the same target sequence that constitutes the restriction enzyme binding site. The methylation renders the target site resistant to restriction, thereby protecting DNA against cleavage.
