Gene Linked to Effectiveness of Blood pressure medication

Variation in a single gene affects how patients respond to a frequently used medication for high blood pressure, researchers at Mayo Clinic, Emory University School of Medicine and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Houston have found. The findings, reported in the February issue of the journal Hypertension, are among the first to pinpoint a connection between a patient’s genetic makeup and the effectiveness of a medication for a common disease.
