Abstract

BACKGROUND: Platelet activation might play a significant role in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events in hypertension (HT). Signal peptide-CUB-EGF domain-containing protein1 (SCUBE1), an indicator of platelet activation, is increased in HT. The aim of this study was to investigate the SCUBE1 in patients with hypertensive crises.
