  1. BP, blood pressure; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; CRP, C-reactive protein; sICAM1, soluble intercellular adhesive molecule 1; sE-selectin, soluble E-selectin; MMP9, matrix metalloproteinase 9; Continuous variables are presented as mean ± SD. CRP, sICAM1, sE-selectin and MMP9 values were transformed logarithmically before statistical testing to meet the assumption of normal distributions; however, the untransformed data are shown.
