The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of high values of blood pressure on circulating CXCL10. CXCL10 levels (median; interquartile range (IQR)) were significantly higher in patients with high systolic and diastolic blood pressure (n = 48; 159 (125-185) pg ml(-1)) than in controls (n = 127; 98 (71-115) pg ml(-1)) or in patients with only systolic hypertension (n = 79; 125 (84-187) pg ml(-1)) (P<0.0001); in multiple linear regression models using CXCL10 as dependent variable, and age and systolic or diastolic blood pressure as covariates, only systolic or diastolic blood pressures were significantly (P<0.0001) related to CXCL10 levels. The results of this study demonstrate increased serum CXCL10 levels in patients with hypertension.
