Abstract

Objective: Hypertension is a multi-factorial process prevalent in developed as well as in developing countries. Urotensin-II, different antioxidants, free radicals, and inflammatory biomarkers play an essential role in the cardiovascular system. The aim of this study is to investigate Urotensin-II, oxidative stress, and inflammation markers in normotensive, hypertensive, and resistant hypertensive patients.
