Abstract

Treatment for high blood pressure was once thought to be life-long. However, there is irrefutable experimental evidence that the right treatments, given in the right circumstances can lower blood pressure for life even after treatment is stopped. The goal of this project is to find ways in which the right people might be identified with the hope of saving drug costs, side effects and lives at the same time.
