  • BACKGROUND Heightened central sympathetic nervous outflow is common in essential hypertension, contributing to hypertension development and perhaps also to complications. Acute sympathetic nervous activation is a proven trigger for adverse cardiovascular events. Accordingly, antihypertensive drugs inhibiting sympathetic outflow represent a theoretically attractive therapeutic option. OBJECTIVES To study the sympatholytic and blood pressure lowering activity of the imidazoline binding agent… CONTINUE READING
