However, no previous study has examined this association in Asians. We examined individuals who were free of hypertension from two independent population-based studies in Singapore: the Singapore Prospective Study Programme (SP2, n=2843 Chinese, Malay and Indians aged ≥24 years) and the Singapore Malay Eye Study (SiMES, n=957 Malays, aged 40-80 years). Prehypertension was defined as systolic blood pressure (BP) 120-139 mm Hg or diastolic BP 80-89 mm Hg. CRP was analyzed as categories (3 mg l-1). The prevalence of prehypertension increased with increasing categories of CRP in both cohorts (P for trend||Source Title:||Journal of Human Hypertension||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/108802||ISSN:||09509240||DOI:||10.1038/jhh.2011.117|
