Arterial hypertension: An expanding pathogenic continuum and therapeutic limitations


The paper considers the role of the immune system, endoplasmic network stress, metabolic dysregulation, and epigenetic mechanisms in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension, as well as the limited possibilities of therapy with existing antihypertensive agents.
