Hypertension is an important risk factor for chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. The global prevalence of hypertension is increasing owing to factors including population ageing and obesity.

This series of articles aims to explore basic, clinical and translational aspects of hypertension, including the epidemiology, pathogenesis, patient management and novel therapeutic strategies.
