Abstract

Background and objectives: The oxidative stress and inflammatory process are cooperative events involved in the development of essential hypertension. This study was as a step for elucidating the contribution of the malondialdehyde, glutathione peroxidase, interleukin -18 and lipid profile with the development of essential hypertension. This study aimed to assess whether the variation in serum malondialdehyde, glutathione peroxidase, interleukin-18 and lipid profile levels were associated with the development of essential hypertension, moreover, find out the effect of age, gender and stage on the serum focused parameters levels and finally detect the correlation coefficient.Methods: This case-control study was performed at the College of Pharmacy, Hawler Medical University in newly diagnosed and untreated patients with essential hypertension of both genders, and 50 of the matched age–gender healthy adults as a control group in the period between 2013-2014.Results: Patients exhibited a significant elevation in the serum malondialdehyde, glutathione peroxidase, interleukin-18 and lipid profile levels.Conclusion: This investigation provided for the first evidence the ability of selected parameters in combination patterns as factors involved in essential hypertension pathophysiology and are regarded as markers of diagnostic significance. The demonstration of these parameters provided new insights into understanding the independence of antioxidant status and inflammatory pathways in essential hypertension development.
