Why Hypertension Research Is So Important

Many with Hypertension often have no symptoms, but it’s still doing damage to the body. Left untreated or uncontrolled, it can damage blood vessels and cause a Stroke or Heart Attack.

Additionally, what many do not realize is that poor vascular (blood vessel) health in middle-age is a risk factor for dementia later in life. This is because it lessens the amount of oxygen that flows to the brain due to damaged heart valves.

Though approved blood pressure medications exist, many struggle to take their daily meds, so it may not work well. Still others need more than one medication—or remain untreated. For these reasons, volunteers are needed for research studies assessing investigational medications for Hypertension—some of which may require very infrequent dosing.

What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are medical research studies that test investigational drugs and treatments.

People may not give much thought to clinical research, but everything from aspirin to chemotherapy has been carefully tested before being prescribed by your doctor.

Clinical trials need human volunteers, who participate under the supervision of a doctor and/or health professionals. As the trial goes on, the doctors gather more and more information about the drug or treatment under investigation. It is only through clinical trials that we learn if drugs and treatments are both effective and safe.

COVID-19 update — we remain open.

For the safety of both staff and patients, we require that our research sites are COVID-19 SMART facilities. That means they use best practices to reduce virus exposure and are dedicated to ensuring they remain open and available for the research of investigational medications.

COVID-19 SMART steps we are taking to ensure safety include:

  • Greatly increased availability of video office visits
  • Ensuring social distancing measures are taken in all waiting areas
  • Continuing the practice of cleaning and disinfecting exam rooms thoroughly between every patient visit
  • Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all staff members at our health clinics

Take the next step to see if you are eligible for local clinical trials for people with Hypertension, also known as High Blood Pressure.
