  • The Year in Clinical Hypertension From Other Pages
    • Authors: Calhoun D.
      Pages: 441 - 444
      Abstract: A large number of important clinical research studies related to hypertension and/or vascular disease were published in 2018. The studies included important findings related to measurement of office blood pressure (BP),1,2 diagnosing primary aldosteronism (PA),3 hypertension risk associated with reduced sleep,4 the risk and benefit of lowering diastolic BP,5 and hypertensive sequelae of preeclampsia.6 Although these and many other papers deserve special attention, for the purposes of this brief commentary, I would like to highlight papers of especially high impact related to optimal treatment of PA; confirmation of a true, independent antihypertensive benefit of renal denervation; delineation of the high risk associated with masked hypertension; and the potential benefit of treating hypertension in a nontraditional setting.

  • Subclinical Primary Aldosteronism and Cardiometabolic Disorders
    • Authors: Adlin E.
      Pages: 445 - 446
      Abstract: The first case of primary aldosteronism (PA), described by Jerome W. Conn in 1954, was a 34-year-old woman with hypertension, muscle weakness related to hypokalemia, tetany related to hyponatremic hypokalemic alkalosis, and a 4-cm adrenal adenoma.1 During the following years, in which the diagnosis of PA depended on a clinical presentation similar to that of the original case, the disease was considered rare.

  • β1-Adrenoreceptor Polymorphisms and Blood Pressure: 49S Variant Increases
           Plasma Renin But Not Blood Pressure in Hypertensive Patients
    • Authors: Sandilands A; O’Shaughnessy K, Yasmin .
      Pages: 447 - 451
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDActivation of beta-1 adrenoreceptor (β1-AR) in the kidney releases renin that plays a major role in the maintenance of blood pressure. Genetic variation in β1-AR could therefore alter the physiological and clinical effects of this hormone. We tested this hypothesis in patients from a primary care cohort being screened for primary hyperaldosteronism (n = 467).METHODSDemographic and hemodynamic data were measured and plasma renin was determined by a standard immunoassay. Subjects were genotyped for the 2 common single-nucleotide polymorphisms Arg389Gly (rs1801253) and Ser49Gly (rs1801252), and thus the 4 possible haplotypes in β1-AR gene.RESULTSIn patients being screened for hyperaldosteronism, plasma renin was significantly elevated in Ser49 homozygotes (49SS) compared with Gly49 (49G) allele carriers (0.307 ± 0.03 vs. 0.164 ± 0.05; P = 0.01). However, this did not translate into differences in either blood pressure or heart rate. On the other hand, the Arg389Gly polymorphism did not affect either plasma renin or blood pressure in this group. There was also no evidence that the 2 loci were linked in this group of patients.CONCLUSIONThese data suggest that in this cohort the Ser49 variant of the Ser49Gly β1-AR gene polymorphism associates with higher renin levels. However, these common β1-AR gene polymorphisms do not affect blood pressure in the same cohort.

  • Dapagliflozin Attenuates Cardiac Remodeling in Mice Model of Cardiac
           Pressure Overload
    • Authors: Shi L; Zhu D, Wang S, et al.
      Pages: 452 - 459
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDDapagliflozin (DAPA) is an inhibitor of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 prescribed for type 2 diabetes mellitus. DAPA plays a protective role against cardiovascular diseases. Nevertheless, the effect and mechanism of DAPA on pressure-overload-induced cardiac remodeling has not been determined.METHODSWe used a transverse aortic constriction (TAC) induced cardiac remodeling model to evaluate the effect of DAPA. Twenty-four C57BL/6J mice were divided into 3 groups: Sham, TAC, and TAC + DAPA groups (n = 8, each). DAPA was administered by gavage (1.0 mg/kg/day) for 4 weeks in the TAC + DAPA group, and then the myocardial hypertrophy, cardiac systolic function, myocardial fibrosis, and cardiomyocyte apoptosis were evaluated.RESULTSMice in TAC group showed increased heart weight/body weight, left ventricular (LV) diameter, LV posterior wall thickness, and decreased LV ejection fraction and LV fractional shortening. The collagen volume fraction and perivascular collagen area/luminal area ratio were significantly greater in the TAC group; the TUNEL-positive cell number and PARP level were also increased. We found that DAPA treatment reduced myocardial hypertrophy, myocardial interstitial and perivascular fibrosis, and cardiomyocyte apoptosis. Furthermore, DAPA administration inhibited phosphorylation of P38 and JNK in TAC group. In addition, the inhibited phosphorylation of FoxO1 in the TAC mice was upregulated by DAPA administration.CONCLUSIONDAPA administration had a cardioprotective effect by improving cardiac systolic function, inhibiting myocardial fibrosis and cardiomyocyte apoptosis in a TAC mouse model, indicating that it could serve as a new therapy to prevent pathological cardiac remodeling in nondiabetics.

      Abstract: BACKGROUNDStudies implicate that angiotensin 1–7 (Ang1-7) imparts protective effects in the kidney. However, its relevance in hypertensive kidney disease is not fully understood. The purpose of this study was to explore the role of Ang1-7 on renal damage/remodeling during hypertension and its potential underlying molecular–cellular mechanisms.METHODSHypertension was induced in adult Sprague–Dawley rats by infusion of aldosterone (ALDO; 0.75 μg/hour) for 4 weeks with or without co-treatment of Ang1-7 (1 mg/kg/day). Untreated rats served as controls. Systolic blood pressure was monitored by tail-cuff technique. Renal fibrosis was evaluated by picrosirius red staining and renal collagen volume fraction was quantitated using imaging analyzing system. The expression of profibrotic factors [transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1), platelet-derived growth factor-D (PDGF-D), fibroblast growth factor-1 (FGF-1), vascular endothelial growth factor-D (VEGF-D), and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs)] and free radical producing enzymes (inducible nitric oxide synthase and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate [NADPH] oxidase) in the kidney were examined by reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction and western blot. Renal oxidative stress was assessed by malondialdehyde (MDA) measurement.RESULTSChronic ALDO infusion caused hypertension and hypertensive renal disease represented as glomerular damage/sclerosis. Ang1-7 co-treatment did not affect blood pressure in ALDO-treated rats, but significantly attenuated the glomerular damage/fibrosis. ALDO treatment significantly elevated renal expression of profibrogenic factors, including TGF-β1, TIMP-1/TIMP-2, FGF-1, PDGF-D, and VEGF-D, whereas Ang1-7 co-treatment significantly reduced renal TGF-β1, TIMP-1/TIMP-2, and FGF-1, but not PDGF-D and VEGF-D. Furthermore, ALDO infusion elevated NADPH oxidase (gp91phox) and MDA in the kidney, which was attenuated by Ang1-7 co-treatment.CONCLUSIONSAng1-7 plays a protective role in the hypertensive kidney disease independent of blood pressure. The beneficial effects of Ang1-7 are likely mediated via suppressing TGF-β/FGF-1 pathways and oxidative stress.

  • The Aldosterone/Renin Ratio Predicts Cardiometabolic Disorders in Subjects
           Without Classic Primary Aldosteronism
    • Authors: Vecchiola A; Fuentes C, Barros E, et al.
      Pages: 468 - 475
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDAldosterone has been linked with obesity, metabolic syndrome (MetS), pro-inflammatory, and prothrombotic states; however, most studies relate these indicators with primary aldosteronism (PA), excluding non-PA patients.OBJECTIVETo determine whether aldosterone, renin, or the plasma aldosterone/renin ratio (ARR) are associated with metabolic disorders and inflammatory/vascular biomarkers in a non-PA population.METHODSWe studied 275 patients including adolescents and adults of both genders and measured plasma and urinary aldosterone and determined the plasma renin activity. In all subjects, the presence of MetS was determined according to Adult Treatment Panel III. Renal, vascular, inflammatory, and mineralocorticoid activity biomarkers were evaluated.RESULTSThe ARR correlated with the number of variables of MetS (r = 0.191, P = 0.002), body mass index (BMI; r = 0.136, P = 0.026), systolic blood pressure (r = 0.183, P = 0.002), diastolic blood pressure (r = 0.1917, P = 0.0014), potassium excreted fraction (r = 0.174, P = 0.004), low-density lipoprotein (r = 0.156, P = 0.01), plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (r = 0.158, P = 0.009), microalbuminuria (r = 0.136, P = 0.029), and leptin (r = 0.142, P = 0.019). In a linear regression model adjusted by age, BMI, and gender, only the ARR was still significant (r = 0.108, P = 0.05). In a logistic regression analysis, the ARR predicted MetS index (odds ratio (OR) = 1.07 [95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.011–1.131], P= 0.02) even after adjusting for age, BMI, and gender. On the other hand, aldosterone showed no association with MetS or inflammatory markers.CONCLUSIONThese results suggest a continuum of cardiometabolic risk beyond the classic PA threshold screening. The ARR could be a more sensitive marker of obesity, MetS, and endothelial damage in non-PA patients than aldosterone or renin alone. Prospective studies are needed to develop future screening cutoff values.

  • Tissue Transglutaminase-Mediated AT1 Receptor Sensitization Underlies
           Pro-inflammatory Cytokine LIGHT-Induced Hypertension
    • Authors: Liu C; Luo R, Wang W, et al.
      Pages: 476 - 485
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDAlthough numerous recent studies have shown a strong link between inflammation and hypertension, the underlying mechanisms by which inflammatory cytokines induce hypertension remain to be fully elucidated. Hypertensive disorders are also associated with elevated pressor sensitivity. Tissue transglutaminase (TG2), a potent cross-linking enzyme, is known to be transcriptionally activated by inflammatory cytokines and stabilize angiotensin II (Ang II) receptor AT1 (AT1R) via ubiquitination-preventing posttranslational modification. Here we sought to investigate the TG2-mediated AT1R stabilization in inflammation-induced hypertension and its functional consequences with a focus on receptor abundance and Ang II responsiveness.METHODS AND RESULTSUsing an experimental model of inflammation-induced hypertension established by introducing the pro-inflammatory tumor necrosis factor cytokine LIGHT, we provide pharmacologic and genetic evidence that TG2 is required for LIGHT-induced hypertension (systolic pressure on day 6: LIGHT = 152.3 ± 7.4 vs. LIGHT+ERW1041E [TG2 inhibitor] = 105.8 ± 13.1 or LIGHT+TG2−/− = 114.3 ± 4.3 mm Hg, P < 0.05, n = 4–5) and renal compromise (urine albumin/creatinine: LIGHT = 0.17 ± 0.05 vs. LIGHT+ERW1041E = 0.03 ± 0.01 or LIGHT+TG2−/− = 0.06 ± 0.01 mg/mg; plasma creatinine: LIGHT = 1.11 ± 0.04 vs. LIGHT+ERW1041E = 0.94 ± 0.04 or LIGHT+TG2−/− = 0.88 ± 0.09 mg/dl; urine volume: LIGHT = 0.23 ± 0.1 vs. LIGHT+ERW1041E = 0.84 ± 0.13 or LIGHT+TG2−/− = 1.02 ± 0.09 ml/24 hour on day 14, P < 0.05, n = 4–5). Our mechanistic studies showed that the TG2-mediated AT1R modification and accumulation (relative renal AT1R level: phosphate-buffered saline [PBS] = 1.23 ± 0.22, LIGHT = 3.49 ± 0.37, and LIGHT+ERW1041E = 1.77 ± 0.46, P < 0.05, n = 3; LIGHT+TG2+/+ = 85.28 ± 36.11 vs. LIGHT+TG2−/− = 7.01 ± 5.68, P < 0.05, n = 3) induced by LIGHT is associated with abrogated β-arrestin binding (AT1R/associated β-arrestin ratio: PBS = 2.62 ± 1.07, LIGHT = 38.60 ± 13.91, and LIGHT+ERW1041E = 6.97 ± 2.91, P < 0.05, n = 3; LIGHT+TG2+/+ = 66.43 ± 44.81 vs. LIGHT+TG2−/− = 2.45 ± 1.78, P < 0.01, n = 3) and could be found in renal medulla tubules of kidneys (relative tubular AT1R level: PBS = 5.91 ± 2.93, LIGHT = 92.82 ± 19.54, LIGHT+ERW1041E = 28.49 ± 11.65, and LIGHT+TG2−/− = 0.14 ± 0.10, P < 0.01, n = 5) and the blood vasculature (relative vascular AT1R level: PBS = 0.70 ± 0.30, LIGHT = 13.75 ± 2.49, and LIGHT+ERW1041E = 3.28 ± 0.87, P < 0.01, n = 3), 2 of the tissues highly related to the genesis of hypertension. Our in vitro cellular assays showed that LIGHT stimulation triggered a rapid TG2-dependent increase in the abundance of AT1Rs (relative AT1R level after 2-hour LIGHT treatment: AT1R (WT)+TG2 = 2.21 ± 0.23, AT1R (Q315A)+TG2 = 0.18 ± 0.23, P < 0.05 vs. starting point = 1, n = 2) and downstream calcium signaling (fold increase in NFAT-driven luciferase activity: Saline = 0.02 ± 0.03, Ang II = 0.17 ± 0.08, LIGHT = 0.05 ± 0.04, LIGHT+Ang II = 0.90 ± 0.04 (P < 0.01 vs. Ang II), and LIGHT+Ang II+ERW1041E = 0.15 ± 0.15 (P < 0.01 vs. LIGHT+Ang II), n = 3).CONCLUSIONSOur data indicate an essential and systemic role for TG2 in bridging inflammation to hypertension via its posttranslational modifications stabilizing AT1 receptor and sensitizing Ang II. Our findings also suggest that TG2 inhibitors could be used as a novel group of cardiovascular agents.

  • Amplified Association Between Blood Pressure and Albuminuria in Overweight
           Patients With Biopsy-Proven Hypertensive Nephrosclerosis
    • Authors: Kohagura K; Furuichi K, Kochi M, et al.
      Pages: 486 - 491
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDAn overweight person is at high risk for hypertensive renal damage. The effect of weight on the association between systolic blood pressure (SBP) and albuminuria remains unknown in patients with histologically diagnosed hypertensive nephrosclerosis.METHODSA total of 97 patients with biopsy-confirmed hypertensive nephrosclerosis were recruited from 13 centers throughout Japan. We examined the relationship between SBP and proteinuria among those who were overweight, which is defined as a body mass index ≥25 kg/m2, and those who were not. We examined the interaction of weight and SBP with albuminuria at baseline and with the changes in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) during the observational period.RESULTSOur results included mean age (54 years old), blood pressure (138/80), eGFR (53 ml/min/1.73 m2), and urine albumin levels (0.2 g/day). SBP was significantly correlated with log-transformed urine albumin levels (r = 0.4, P = 0.01) in patients who were overweight (n = 38) compared with patients who were not overweight (n = 59). Multiple regression analysis revealed that the interaction between being overweight and SBP with respect to albuminuria was significantly correlated with the log-transformed urine albumin level (β = 0.39, P = 0.047) and was independent of age, sex, and potential confounding factors. The interaction between weight and SBP ≥140 mm Hg was significantly associated with a greater decrease in eGFR in the following 3 years.CONCLUSIONSBeing overweight may enhance susceptibility to hypertensive glomerular damage and may eventually lead to renal progression in patients with hypertensive nephrosclerosis.

  • The Risk of Hypertension Doubles Every 10 Years in China: Age, Period, and
           Birth Cohort Effects on the Prevalence of Hypertension From 2004 to 2013
    • Authors: Rao J; Chen X, Zhang J, et al.
      Pages: 492 - 502
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDHypertension is a growing problem worldwide and can often result in a variety of negative health outcomes. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of age at diagnosis, calendar period, and birth cohort on the change in the prevalence rate of hypertension in Guangzhou from 2004 to 2013.METHODSWe used data from the Guangzhou Community Health Survey, a population-based study designed by the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the PRC every 5 years. A total of 27,299, 23,467, and 18,362 participants aged 15–79 years completed the survey in 2004, 2009, and 2013, respectively.RESULTSAge effects increased slowly before the age of 42 years but increased rapidly after the age of 42 years, peaking at 79 years. Cohort effects grew slowly before the end of the 1960s but grew quickly after the end of the 1960s. The risk of suffering from hypertension among people born in 1962, 1972, 1982, and 1992 was 1.39, 2.68, 5.55, and 11.53 times, respectively, than that of people born in 1952. The period effects increased 25% from 2004 to 2009 and later declined 27% from 2009 to 2013 in the entire population. There was no gender difference in age effects and period effects, but strong cohort effects on hypertension were observed among males compared with females.CONCLUSIONSFor Chinese individuals, the later one is born, the higher the risk is of suffering from hypertension. Strong cohort effects for hypertension were observed among males compared with females, indicating that males are more easily affected by hypertension based on the change in birth cohort.

  • Association Between Community-Level Social Participation and Self-reported
           Hypertension in Older Japanese: A JAGES Multilevel Cross-sectional Study
    • Authors: Nakagomi A; Tsuji T, Hanazato M, et al.
      Pages: 503 - 514
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDMany factors are associated with hypertension development. We focused on social participation as an aspect of social capital and investigated the contextual relationship between community-level social participation and hypertension using multilevel regression analyses.METHODSWe used cross-sectional data from the 2016 Japan Gerontological Evaluation Study—a population-based study of functionally independent adults aged 65 years or older. The sample comprised 116,013 participants nested in 818 communities. Hypertension and social capital were defined by questionnaires. Social capital was assessed at both the individual and the community levels in 3 dimensions: civic participation (as an index of social participation), social cohesion, and reciprocity.RESULTSThe prevalence rate of hypertension was 43.7%, and 44.1% of the respondents were involved in civic participation. Community-level civic participation, but not social cohesion or reciprocity, was negatively associated with hypertension in the total population (prevalence ratio (95% confidence interval): 0.98 (0.96–0.99), P = 0.004) and female group (0.97 (0.95–0.99), P = 0.015), and the association neared significance in the male group (0.98 (0.96–1.005), P = 0.13) after adjustment for individual-level social capital dimensions including civic participation, individual-level covariates, and population density as a community-level covariate. The interaction between community-level civic participation and sex in relation to hypertension was significant (P = 0.012).CONCLUSIONSWe found a contextual preventive relationship between community-level civic participation and hypertension. The design of the contextual characteristics of communities by the promotion of social participation may help reduce the prevalence of hypertension in older people.

  • Dysregulation of HDAC9 Represses Trophoblast Cell Migration and Invasion
           Through TIMP3 Activation in Preeclampsia
    • Authors: Xie D; Zhu J, Liu Q, et al.
      Pages: 515 - 523
      Abstract: BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVEPreeclampsia (PE) is a common disease during pregnancy. It is generally accepted that PE is closely associated with shallow placenta implantation caused by the dysfunction of trophoblast cells. Trophoblasts have been recognized to share histological and behavioral characteristics with cancer cells, and many lines of evidence have emphasized that histone deacetylases (HDACs) are therapeutic targets for cancer treatment with the most promising. However, the roles of HDACs have not been well established in PE. The purpose of this study is investigating the expression of HDACs in preeclamptic placentas and to explore its roles in PE progression.METHODSBoth mRNA and protein levels of HDAC9 were determined by q-RT-PCR and western blot in normal and preeclamptic placentas. The localization of HDAC9 was performed by immunohistochemistry. Trophoblast cell mobility and proliferation were determined by transwell and MTS assays, respectively. The histone acetylation levels of the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 3 (TIMP3) promoter were detected by chromatin immunoprecipitation–quantitative polymerase chain reaction (ChIP–qPCR) assay.RESULTSHDAC9 was downregulated in preeclamptic placentas compared with that in normal controls, and it was mainly localized in the nucleus of syncytiotrophoblast cells. HDAC9 knockdown in HTR-8/SVneo cells inhibited cell migration and invasion. The transcriptional level of TIMP3 was upregulated in HDAC9-knockdown HTR-8/SVneo cells because of promoter histone hyperacetylation. Importantly, HDAC9 downregulation can rescue the defects caused by HDAC9 knockdown.CONCLUSIONSHDAC9 promotes trophoblast cell migration and invasion by repressing TIMP3 through promoter histone hypoacetylation. Thus, the findings of our study suggest that dysregulated HDAC9 and TIMP3 are relevant to PE.

  • Maternal Blood Pressure, Cord Glucocorticoids, and Child Neurodevelopment
           at 2 Years of Age: A Birth Cohort Study
    • Authors: Liu Q; Jin S, Sun X, et al.
      Pages: 524 - 530
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDPregnancy hypertensive disorders have impaired neurodevelopment in offspring. We aimed to explore the association of normal range maternal blood pressure (BP) with child neurodevelopment, as well as the possible role of placental 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (11β-HSD2) therein.METHODSAmong 1,008 mother–child pairs recruited in Wuhan, China, in 2013–2015, we measured maternal third-trimester BP (systolic BP (SBP) and diastolic BP (DBP)) and cord glucocorticoids (cortisol and cortisone), a marker reflecting placental 11β-HSD2 activity. We evaluated child neurodevelopment using the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID) with obtaining the Mental and Psychomotor Development Index (MDI and PDI). Multiple regression and mediation analysis were performed to estimate the effect.RESULTSEach 5 mm Hg increase in maternal third-trimester SBP was associated with 1.54 points decrease in MDI (95% confidence interval (CI) = –2.60, –0.48) and 1.23 points decrease in PDI (95% CI = –2.14, –0.31); similar association was observed between DBP and BSID (adjusted β = –1.32; 95% CI = –2.53, –0.10 for MDI and –1.37; 95% CI = –2.42, –0.33 for PDI). Also, we found significant associations between cord cortisol/cortisone ratio and PDI (adjusted β = 2.95; 95% CI = 0.91, 4.99), as well as between maternal BP and cord cortisol/cortisone ratio (adjusted β = –0.03; 95% CI = –0.06, –0.01 for both SBP and DBP). Mediation analysis revealed that cord cortisol/cortisone ratio explained 6.29% of the association between SBP and PDI, and 6.85% between DBP and PDI.CONCLUSIONSIncreased maternal normal range BP may affect child neurodevelopment. Furthermore, placental 11β-HSD2 activity might be involved in the process.
