Abstract

Adrenomodulin (ADM) is a peptide hormone secreted in response to cellular strain such as ischemia and is believed to have a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. However, the epidemiological relationships between ADM and measurements of haemodynamics, arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis are not well established. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the mid-regional part of pro-ADM (MR-proADM) and brachial pulse pressure (PP), carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) and carotid atherosclerosis.
