Summary and Info
Hypertension and Hormone Mechanisms reviews novel developments in the endocrinology of hypertension with emphasis on new discovery during the past five years and perspectives on the future. Written by authors who have spearheaded recent advances, chapters cover innovations in our understanding of the reninangiotensin-aldosterone, the sympathoadrenal, and the renal dopaminergic systems. World-renowed researchers also discuss natriuretic peptides, vasoactive substances and vasopeptidases, insulin, free fatty acids, and the insulin resistance syndrome, sex hormones, and the vasculature and selected areas of diagnosis and therapy. With a focus on new developments in hormones and autacoids related to hypertension, Hypertension and Hormone Mechanisms provides a resource that will lead to new, active research in the fundamental mechanisms of hypertension.
