          Abstract

          Apelin is an adipokine directly associated with adiposity, insulin resistance, and decreased blood pressure. Urinary 8-isoprostane is a marker of chronic oxidative endothelial stress. Visfatin, an adipokine that acts by binding and activating the insulin receptor, has been associated with hypertension. As severe hypertension (SH) is highly prevalent among African Americans (AA), we aimed to assess the association of these biomarkers with SH status.
