Study sheds light on the development of inflammation, high blood pressure and resulting kidney damage
Oct. 20, 2022—by Bill Snyder Researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center have found that the change in a single letter of the genetic code promotes, in a mouse model, the development of inflammation, high blood pressure and resulting kidney damage. Their findings, featured Oct. 14 on the cover of Circulation Research, suggest that targeting inflammatory cytokines, signaling...
