The purpose of this study was to investigate whether common polymorphisms in the C-terminus of SCNN1B gene encoding the β-subunit of epithelial sodium channel are associated with essential hypertension (EH) in Chinese hypertensive families. A total of 433 subjects from 102 EH families were recruited. Biochemical and anthropometric indices and systematic… CONTINUE READING
