Abstract

Objective: Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) and pulse wave velocity (PWV) are pivotal indices of the processes of arterial ageing and damage accumulation. The aim of the present study was to investigate the impact of AGEs, as measured by a non-invasive skin autofluorescence method, on arterial stiffness, estimated by PWV, in two different age groups of non-diabetic subjects. Methods and patients: A total of 116 non-diabetic subjects were classified into two groups, with 55 subjects in the group aged <65 years and 61 in the group aged ≥ 65 years. AGEs were measured by skin autofluorescence while carotid-femoral PWV was assessed by tonometry. Results: A significant (positive) association was observed between PWV and AGE skin autofluorescence in the younger age group (r = 0.51; P
