Resistant hypertension affects 20% to 30% of patients with high blood pressure (BP). It is defined as failure to achieve goal BP despite using at least 3 antihypertensive drugs of different classes, at maximal tolerated doses, one of which must be a diuretic. Persistent suboptimal BP is the most common ...

In conditions with albuminuria, plasminogen is aberrantly filtered across the glomerular barrier and activated along the tubular system to plasmin. In the collecting duct, plasmin activates epithelial sodium channels (ENaC) proteolytically. Hyperactivity of ENaC could link microalbuminuria/proteinuria to resistant hypertension. Amiloride, an ENaC inhibitor, inhibits urokinase-type plasminogen activator. We hypothesized ...
