Research Interest: Research Interest: long-term experience in the
management of chronic inflammatory and systemic autoimmune diseases.
Her research activity addressed mainly to the study of clinical,
diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of immune-mediated and chronic
inflammatory rheumatic diseases with particular attention to the
investigation of the mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of
autoimmune diseases, the cardiovascular involvement in rheumatic
disorders and the effects of technobiological therapies
Research Interest: Clinical and epidemiological aspects of
cardiovascular disease, in particularly on salt-sensitivity of blood
pressure, nutrition and genetics aspects of hypertension, alterations in
renal sodium handling in hypertension and related metabolic conditions.

(HBP) and clinic blood pressure (CBP) My designations is cohort study
of morning HBP and CBP with thresholds 130 mmHg of systolic blood
pressure related vascular events for duration of 20 years in patients
with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) or type 2 DM
Research Interest: The overall emphasis of Xiaodong Zheng s
research is to understand the cellular mechanisms by which the
endothelium and smooth muscle regulates blood vessel tone in both normal
physiological conditions and disease states, such as hypoxic pulmonary
hypertension and hypertension. The pulmonary circulation and systemic
circulation display different characterize in response to physiological
stimuli, such as hypoxia. Under hypoxia condition, pulmonary vessels is
constricted, whether the systemic vessels is relaxation. The vascular
tone is regulating through the release of vasoactive mediators of
endothelium in response to either chemical or mechanical stimuli. Some
of these mediators include nitric oxide (NO), prostacyclin, and less
well-understood endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factors such as
metabolites of arachidonic acid and reactive oxygen species (e.g.
hydrogen peroxide). Of particular interest to our group are the
identities and mechanisms of action of hypoxia in pulmonary and
