Newswise: Researchers Discover New, Treatable Pathway Known to Cause Hypertension in Obese People

Researchers Discover New, Treatable Pathway Known to Cause Hypertension in Obese People

Johns Hopkins Medicine

There’s no question that as body weight increases, so too does blood pressure. Now, in a study of mice, Johns Hopkins researchers have revealed exactly which molecules are likely responsible for the link between obesity and blood pressure. Blocking one of these molecules — a signaling channel that’s found in a tiny organ on the side of your neck — effectively lowers blood pressure in obese mice, the researchers reported recently in the journal Circulation Research.
