An option for high blood pressure
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, makes the heart work harder to pump blood to the body. Having high blood pressure can contribute to hardening of the arteries, and raise your chances of stroke, heart attack, heart failure, arterial disease, and chronic kidney disease. Studies have suggested a connection between being overweight and having high blood pressure.
If you have high blood pressure, you can take action and explore your options. Right now, doctors are looking for people with high blood pressure to participate in a clinical research study.
Studying an investigational drug
Clinical research doctors are currently enrolling patients with high blood pressure for a research study. This study will evaluate an investigational drug for treating high blood pressure. "Investigational" means that the drug isn't yet approved for use by the general public.
The investigational drug is one of a new class of drugs known as HSD1 inhibitors. Doctors are studying this drug to see if it may help lower blood pressure and possibly promote weight loss.
