Yale researchers discover a genetic cause of high blood pressure

Researchers at Yale studying a rare inherited form of hypertension have discovered mutations in two different genes that can cause thisdisease, clearing the way for new medications to treat both the rare and common forms of high blood pressure. "This study identifies a previously unknown biochemical pathway involved in the regulation of blood pressure," said principal investigator Richard P. Lifton, M.D., professor of genetics, medicine, and molecular biophysics and biochemistry at Yale School of Medicine.
