Genetic causes of hypertension identified

Researchers at the University of Virginia and Georgetown University have identified three abnormalities in a single gene that are linked to hypertension. Possessing any of these genetic variations increases the likelihood of developing essential hypertension, the most common class of high blood pressure. Their study, the result of an 18-year UVa-Georgetown research collaboration, appears in the March 19 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
