Prognostic implications of ischemia modified albumin in known cases of86 elderly hypertensive South Asian aged 56-64 years - a hospital based study

Journal Title: Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Disease - Year 2014, Vol 4, Issue 0

Abstract

Objective: To study associated ischemia modified albumin in hypertensive participants and to compare the results with normotensive healthy controls. Methods: A total of 86 hypertensive patients and 86 age-sex matched normotensive healthy volunteers were selected for this study. The study was conducted for a period of 3 years from September 2007 to August 2010. Biochemical parameters and other parameters such as smoking habits, systolic and diastolic blood pressure and family history were recorded. Lipid profile, ischemia modified albumin, malondialdehyde and conjugated diene were measured by standard methods and results were compared between patients and controls. Results: Total cholesterol, triglycerides, low density lipoprotein cholesterol were significantly higher (P<0.001 ) in hypertensive subjects when compared to normotensive control. Also, significant differences were seen in high density lipoprotein cholesterol levels between both groups (P<0.001 ). The index of lipid per oxidation comprising both malondialdehyde and conjugated dienes were significantly higher in hypertensive compared to normotensive controls. Ischemia modified albumin levels were significantly increased among hypertensive compared to normotensive controls (P<0.001). Conclusions: Hypertensive patients have increased oxidative stress and are accompanied with rise in ischemia modified albumin. Ischemia modified albumin could be incorporated as a diagnostic test parameter in hypertensive to avoid the future acute coronary complications.
