People who visit high-altitude areas are exposed to a stressful environment and a good percentage of them suffer from high-altitude-induced diseases, including systemic hypertension. Identification of genetic markers for high-altitude-induced diseases would help to reduce the rate of morbidity/mortality from such diseases. The development of systemic hypertension on exposure to high altitude (3,500 m) for 30 days in otherwise normotensive natives of low-altitudes was investigated. The… CONTINUE READING
