C003 – Hypertension

Objectives and lines of research


  • Experimental models of arteriosclerotic disease and vascular aging
  • Non-invasive diagnosis of subclinical arteriosclerosis
  • Oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction and arteriosclerosis
  • Vascular risk stratification in low prevalence diseases
  • Prognostic value of ambulatory BP monitoring in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
  • Early identification of population at high vascular risk in the community setting
  • Retinal microcirculation, arterial hypertension and antihypertensive treatment
  • Interrelation between circadian variation in blood pressure and vascular risk. Epidemiological, pathophysiological and clinical aspects
  • Antihypertensive chronoepidemiology, chronopharmacology and chronotherapy
  • Clinical Trials in Arterial Hypertension, Diabetes Mellitus, Dyslipidemias, Heart Failure and Cardiovascular Morbidity and Mortality
  • Orthostatic hypotension, organ damage and circadian variability of blood pressure.
