Quadruple combination pill to lower BP

News - Oct. 5, 2021

ESC 2021 The QUARTET trial showed that starting with a quarter-dose quadruple combination pill led to greater BP lowering compared to starting with standard dose monotherapy in patients with hypertension.

Stroke reduction with replacement of salt by a salt substitute

News - Sep. 12, 2021
The Salt Substitute and Stroke Study (SSaSS) showed that replacement of salt (100% NaCl) with a salt substitute (75% NaCl + 25% KCl) reduces the risk of stroke in people with prior stroke or hypertension.

Women at early 40s with hypertension stage 1 have increased ACS risk during midlife

Literature - June 23, 2021 - Kringeland E, et al. - Eur J Prev Cardiol 2021
Women with hypertension stage 1 (130-139 mmHg) at their early 40s had an increased risk of ACS during midlife, while this association was non-significant in men after adjusting for CV risk factors.

Scientifc Statement from the AHA on adverse pregnancy outcomes and CVD

Literature - Apr. 21, 2021 - Parikh NI et al. - Circulation. 2021

Adverse pregnancy outcomes (APOs) are associated with future development of CVD. The statement from the American Heart Association gives recommendations for strategies to reduce the long-term CVD risk in women with APOs.

Almost linear association between sodium intake and BP in persons with and without hypertension

Literature - Mar. 16, 2021 - Filippini T, et al. - Circulation. 2021

Sodium intake was almost linearly associated with SBP and DBP, without a threshold for low or high sodium exposure. The effect of sodium reduction on BP was more pronounced in individuals with hypertension.

Increased CVD risk associated with lower SBP range in women compared to men

Literature - Mar. 5, 2021 - Ji H et al. - Circulation. 2021.

This study used data from four community-based cohort studies and investigated the relation between SBP and incident CVD. Increasing CVD risk was observed beginning at lower SBP thresholds in women than in men.

The global burden of CVD and risk factors: An overview from 1990 to 2019

Literature - Jan. 22, 2021 - Roth GA, et al. - J Am Coll Cardiol. 2020

Global CVD burden has increased in almost all regions outside high-income countries. The increase was largely due to population growth and aging. In addition, attribution of risk factors like SBP, BMI, and dietary risk increased worldwide.

Identification of causal mechanism of age-related hypertension endotype

Literature - Dec. 10, 2020 - Elbatreek MH, et al. - PLoS Biol 2020

A study of network approaches with clinical and pre-clinical validation showed that NOX5-induced uncoupling of endothelial NO synthase is a causal mechanism of an age-related hypertension endotype.
