Purpose null To examine the acute and chronic effects of alcohol on blood pressure (BP) and the incidence of hypertension. We discuss the most current understanding of the mechanisms underlining these effects and their associations with the putative cardioprotective effects of consumption of low-to-moderate amounts of alcoholic beverages. null Recent findings null A recent meta-analysis confirmed findings of experimental studies, demonstrating an acute biphasic effect of ethanol on BP, decreasin...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW This study investigated and pooled the long-term trends in prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension (HTN) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we searched MEDLINE/PubMed, Web of Science, Google Scholar, EMBASE, and Scopus between database inception and November 2020. All cross-sectional studies that investigated the prevalence of pre-HTN, HTN, awareness, treatment, and control in the MENA counties w...

PURPOSE OF HEADING To review the relationship between intestinal microbes and hypertension and its impact on the efficacy of antihypertensive drugs, and help to address some of these knowledge gaps. RECENT FINDINGS Hypertension is associated with cardiovascular diseases and is the most important modifiable risk factor for all-cause morbidity and mortality worldwide. The pathogenesis of hypertension is complex, including factors such as dietary, environmental and genetics. Recently, the studies h...

Purpose of review null Both HIV infection and preeclampsia (PE), a pregnancy-specific disorder of hypertension and multi-system organ involvement, have high prevalence rates especially in low-to-middle-income countries. The immunoexpression of specific renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) receptors in the placenta and placental bed interface may forecast the risk of PE. null Recent findings null Preeclampsia is a leading risk factor for mortality worldwide and remains a challenge in HIV-i...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Coffee is a very popular drink and an estimated 2.25 billion cups worldwide are consumed daily. Such popularity of coffee makes it the most consumed drink next to water. Numerous studies have shown a beneficial effect of habitual and moderate coffee consumption on the functioning of the nervous, digestive, and cardiovascular systems, as well as on kidney function. Taking into account the very high prevalence of arterial hypertension in the world (31.1% of adults), much controve...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW To review the literature and detail the potential immune mechanisms by which hyperserotonemia may drive pro-inflammation in preeclampsia and to provide insights into potential avenues for therapeutic discovery. RECENT FINDINGS Preeclampsia is a severe hypertensive complication of pregnancy associated with significant maternal and fetal risk. Though it lacks any effective treatment aside from delivery of the fetus and placenta, recent work suggests that targeting serotonin syste...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To highlight the epidemiology and pathophysiology of hypertension and obesity in COVID-19 infection RECENT FINDINGS: Hypertension and obesity have emerged as significant risk factors for contracting the COVID-19 virus and the subsequent severity of illness. ACE2 receptor expression and dysregulation of the RAAS pathway play important roles in the pathophysiology of these associations, as do the pro-inflammatory state and cytokine dysregulation seen in obesity. Some of these pa...

To elucidate the hemodynamic, autonomic, vascular, hormonal, and local mechanisms involved in the blood pressure (BP)–lowering effect of dynamic resistance training (DRT) in prehypertensive and hypertensive populations. The systematic search identified 16 studies involving 17 experimental groups that assessed the DRT effects on BP mechanisms in prehypertensive and/or hypertensive populations. These studies mainly enrolled women and middle-aged/older individuals. Vascular effects of DRT were cons...

Purpose of review null The sodium (Na+) and hydrogen (H+) exchanger 3 (NHE3), known as solute carrier family 9 member 3 (SLC9A3), mediates active transcellular Na+ and bicarbonate reabsorption in the small intestine of the gut and proximal tubules of the kidney. The purpose of this article is to review and discuss recent findings on the critical roles of intestinal and proximal tubule NHE3 in maintaining basal blood pressure (BP) homeostasis and their potential therapeutic implications in the de...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW While we started clinical trials evaluating the benefit of lowering systolic BP's >160 mm Hg and diastolic BPs of <130 mm Hg, the latest guideline suggests a target of <130/80 mm Hg in those with hypertension. This article summarizes exactly how we got to where we are looking over the last half-century. RECENT FINDINGS Our understanding of systolic and diastolic blood pressure targets to improve cardiovascular outcomes has changed substantially over the past 5 decades. Regardin...
