Resumen

CESPEDES, Ela; PONTE GONZALEZ, Giovanny; RIVERON FORMENT, Gretel  y  CASTILLO HERRERA, José A.. Oxidative stress markers in hypertensive patients from a rural population in Havana province. Rev Cubana Invest Bioméd [online]. 2008, vol.27, n.1. ISSN 0864-0300.

The cellular metabolism generates reactive deleterious species that are involved in vascular biology. Due to the possible participation of these species in arterial hypertension, we proposed ourselves to study some lipid markers and oxidative metabolism markers in hypertensives with one year of evolution from a rural zone of Artemisa municipality, Havana Province . The triglyceride concentration proved to be higher in hypertensive females compared with the normotensive. HDLc was lower among hypertensives and no differences were observed neither in the products of lipid peroxidation nor in the activity of the antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase and catalase. In correspondence with the body mass index, the hypertensive patients were overweight. The results showed did not support the role of oxidative stress in the development of arterial hypertension, at least in the population group under study.

Palabras clave : Arterial hypertension; oxidative stress; serum lipids.
