Hypertension: From Epidemiology to Therapeutics

Description

Although hypertension affects around 30 percent of the adult population in the United States, less than half of the people with hypertension have their blood pressure controlled according to JNC-VII Guidelines. This scenario is perhaps worse in developing and third world countries. Accordingly, over 60 percent of the hypertensive population remains at heightened risk of acute coronary syndrome, stroke, heart failure, and renal disease. The primary reason to treat high blood pressure is to reduce the risk of serious cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and renal events. Moreover, elevated blood pressure frequently occurs in conjunction with obesity, dyslipidemia, and diabetes, all factors that synergistically increase the risk of serious CV and renal events.

Taking into account the impact of high blood pressure on health, the International Journal of Hypertension is pleased to invite authors to submit papers for this special issue. This issue is aimed at providing a forum for publication of original peer-reviewed short communications, full-length research papers, and review articles on new research findings and developments in epidemiology, basic science, and pharmacologic frontiers in high blood pressure management. As the field is highly important, it requires cooperation between research communities from all over the world to share their knowledge and experience in order to control this disease. The scope of the special issue includes, but is not limited to the following topics related to hypertension:

  • Epidemiology of hypertension
  • Diet modification in hypertension and endothelial dysfunction
  • Prevention strategies in hypertension
  • New frontiers in pharmacologic management of hypertension
  • Blood pressure measurement (office, home, ambulatory)
  • Prehypertension-prevention strategies in hypertension
  • Effect of earlier interventions in hypertensive subjects
  • Recent advances in genetic epidemiology of hypertension
  • Socioeconomic differences in the prevalence of hypertension in the world

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijht/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
