Osmoreceptors in liver help increase blood pressure
Researchers of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch, the Experimental and Clinical Research Center (ECRC) of the MDC and Charité and the Hannover Medical School (MHH) appear to have made a breakthrough discovery. Dr. Stefan Lechner and Professor Gary R. Lewin (both of MDC), Professor Friedrich C. Luft (ECRC) and Professor Jens Jordan (ECRC; now MHH) have discovered a new group of sensory neurons in the mouse liver which mediates the regulation of blood pressure and metabolism. This peripheral control center outside of the brain is triggered simply by drinking water and leads to an elevation of blood pressure in sick and elderly people.

High blood pressure induces low fat metabolism in heart muscle
Under some conditions this energy-hungry organ is prone to defects in its energy metabolism that contribute to heart disease, according to research published in a recent issue of the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology by de las Fuentes and colleagues at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Earlier research led by de las Fuentes' colleague Robert J. Gropler, M.D., showed that heart muscle in people with diabetes is overly dependent on fat for energy. Even though fat is an efficient fuel, burning it for energy creates an unusually high demand for oxygen, making the diabetic heart more sensitive to the drops in oxygen levels that occur with coronary artery blockage.

Beta Blockers No More First Choice for Hypertension
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), UK and the National Collaborating Centre for Chronic Conditions, in conjunction with the British Hypertension Society (BHS) on Wednesday 28 June launched the keenly awaited updated clinical guideline on the management of hypertension. The guideline updates the recommendations for the pharmacological management of hypertension contained in the original NICE guideline published in August 2004. Based on a thorough review of recently published data, the guideline sets the gold standard for the optimum pharmacological management of hypertension and in so doing seeks to decrease morbidity and mortality resulting from cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, chronic renal failure and coronary heart disease for which hypertension is a significant risk factor.

ASCOT-BPLA : An Overview of Largest European Hypertension Trial Results
Combination of effective, modern antihypertensives with cholesterol lowering drugs can abolish most strokes and heart attacks in people with high blood pressure by reducing the risk of strokes by about 25%, coronaries by 15%, and cardiovascular deaths by 25% and new cases of diabetes by 30% compared with the standard treatment. The success of this treatment strategy has been shown for the first time in the Anglo-Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial (ASCOT) - which was presented at the congress of the European Society of Cardiology on 4 September 2005 and is published online in The Lancet. ASCOT is the largest study of high blood pressure treatment ever conducted in Europe. Also, it is the only major European study to-date to combine these two treatment strategies.
