In recognition of World Hypertension Day on 17 May, we're pleased to bring together relevant content from our journal, Clinical Science.
Professor Michael Ryan, Editor in Chief of the journal, has highlighted the significance of work in this area and the importance of raising awareness of associated conditions:
“Hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke, heart disease, renal disease, and vascular dementia. Well over 1 billion adults have hypertension worldwide. Despite the available antihypertensive treatments and growing mechanistic insights for the origins of hypertension, blood pressure is properly controlled in less than half of hypertensive individuals. World Hypertension Day serves to promote awareness about this disease and the continued need to work towards strategies that will reduce the overall burden of hypertension. In order to do its part, Clinical Science welcomes cutting edge hypertension research submissions to advance the field forward.”
