The purpose of this study is to verify the efficacy of Rostafuroxin in the treatment of essential hypertension and to determine the best effective dose to be administered in the general hypertensive population and in a subset of this population in which genetic patterns could be involved in the etiology of essential hypertension.
Elevated arterial pressure is probably the most important public health problem. about 30% of the world adult population are affected by hypertension in industrialised countries. Development of a pharmacogenomic approach to the therapy of primary hypertension give new opportunities for the treatment of hypertension. This approach consists in the identification of the genetic-molecular mechanisms responsible for hypertension in a given subset of patients, and in the development of drugs able to interfere with such mechanisms, thus leading to very selective therapeutic interventions with enhanced efficacy and reduced side effects.

The principal aim of the study is to demonstrate that Rostafuroxin is able to induce a more pronounced reduction of arterial blood pressure respect to Losartan, in hypertensive patients ca...
Essential hypertension is characterized by impaired endothelial function. Data derived from normotensive subjects with a genetic predisposition to arterial hypertension suggest that endoth...
Phase 3 study to examine the relation between antihypertensive effect and baseline factors exploratively, compared to olmesartan medoxomil in patients with essential hypertension.
We, the investigators at Holstebro Hospital, want to test the hypothesis that eprosartan reduces the activity of the sympathetic nervous system in patients with essential hypertension - du...
The CoCa study with at maximum daily dose of 32 mg candesartan or 16/12.5 mg candesartan/hydrochlorothiazide has the objective to evaluate under naturalistic conditions, i.e. under routine...
Autoimmunity is increasingly recognized as having a central role in essential hypertension. Heat shock proteins are immunodominant molecules with high interspecies homology and autoimmune reactivity d...
In recent years, using metabolomics technology to study hypertension has made some progress. However, in actual clinical studies, there are few studies on hypertension related metabonomics with human ...
Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is a robust marker of endothelial dysfunction in patients with essential hypertension. We investigated ADMA levels and their association with vascular damage in untr...
The comparison of antihypertensive effects between telmisartan and candesartan in patients with essential hypertension has been investigated in several small studies. The results were not consistent. ...
Salt-sensitive hypertension (SSH) is an intermediate inherited phenotype of essential hypertension as well as being an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, effective medication...
Hypertension that occurs without known cause, or preexisting renal disease. Associated polymorphisms for a number of genes have been identified, including AGT, GNB3, and ECE1. OMIM: 145500
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
The active metabolite of ENALAPRIL and a potent intravenously administered angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. It is an effective agent for the treatment of essential hypertension and has beneficial hemodynamic effects in heart failure. The drug produces renal vasodilation with an increase in sodium excretion.
A selective serotonin receptor antagonist with weak adrenergic receptor blocking properties. The drug is effective in lowering blood pressure in essential hypertension. It also inhibits platelet aggregation. It is well tolerated and is particularly effective in older patients.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries between the heart and lungs of affected individuals. Symptoms can range from mild breathles...
