Animal Models of Hypertension
Published: March 14, 2019
- Hypertension is the most prevalent chronic disease in the world but determining the precise cause of elevated blood pressure may not be possible.
- Use of animal models for research in hypertension have been instrumental for understanding the pathogenesis of hypertension and for testing new therapeutic strategies.
- This statement addresses the importance of developing models that mimic certain hypertensive syndromes seen in clinics, resolving controversies in the pathogenesis of hypertension, and developing new ways to prevent and treat hypertension.
