Several clinical studies have consistently demonstrated that low birth weight may contribute to the late development of cardiovascular disease. Although the factors involved in this effect have not yet been fully elucidated, studies in the literature have already shown a correlation between low birth weight and elevated blood pressure levels, reduced vascular compliance, incomplete vasc...
Several available evidence from clinical and experimental studies demonstrated that there is an excess risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), type 2 diabetes, hypertension and metabolic syndrome among individuals with history of low birth weight (LBW). Recently, we demonstrated that LBW children had elevation of blood pressure levels associated with endothelial dysfunction. Moreover, we ...
Clinical and experimental investigations have been demonstrated that the low birth weight can contribute to development of cardiovascular diseases in later life. Although the factors involved in this effects are not yet fully elucidated changes, such as, reduced vascular compliance, characterized by incompleted vasculogenesis and microvascular rarefaction capacity and alteration in modu...
