Information provided by:
National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00005166
First received: May 25, 2000
Last updated: June 23, 2005
Last verified: May 2000
  Purpose

Originally, to determine whether genetic alterations in pathways of sodium ion transport in the red blood cells of children could predict their risk of developing primary hypertension in adulthood. In 1992, the objective was to determine the genetic basis of interindividual variation in the risk of essential hypertension in the population at large using the Rochester Family Heart Study.
