Numerous observational studies have reported an association between serum urate and elevated blood pressure in adult populations (1). These observations, together with experimental in vivo studies, have generated substantial interest in the role of hyperuricaemia as a mediator of elevated blood pressure, with various postulated mechanisms, including activation of renin-angiotensin system, oxidative stress, reduced endothelial nitric oxide availability, and renal vasoconstriction (2).
