Lipoproteins and the metabolic syndrome The metabolic syndrome has recently been defined by the National Institutes of Health (2001) [16] as a cluster of disorders including abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, endothelial dysfunction, blood pressure, and impaired fibrinolysis. The risk factors that constitute the metabolic syndrome consist of atherogenic dyslipemia, elevated blood pressure, elevated plasma glucose, and a prothrombotic state [17]. The metabolic syndrome is closely linked to the metabolic derangement called insulin resistance.

Elevated AGII activity, which is strongly correlated with hypertension, is a major trigger of endothelial dysfunction in hypertensive patients. AGII stimulates NADPH/NADH oxidase in endothelium, VSMC, and adventitia of blood vessels to generate reactive oxygen species, leading to endothelial dysfunction, cell growth, and inflammation [23]. These changes result in upregulation of endothelin-1, adhesion molecules, NF-kb, and other inflammatory mediators, as well as increased breakdown of nitric oxide and uncoupling of nitric oxide synthase.
