Blood pressure and body weight rise with age, and hypertension is hypothesized to result from an early disorder of growth. We used the statistical technique of spline fitting to examine patterns of growth and rising blood pressure in individual inbred rats of the Wistar-Kyoto, spontaneously hypertensive (SHR), and stroke-prone SHR strains. Our results indicate that growth is phasic and that a well-defined growth spurt peaks at approximately 50 days of age in each strain. In addition, the time… CONTINUE READING
