Mechanisms of Dexamethasone-Induced Hypertension
Hypertension is a well-recognized complication of excess glucocorticoids, both naturally-occurring and synthetic. Dexamethasone is a potent synthetic glucocorticoid, which has widespread clinical applications. As dexamethasone has purely glucocorticoid activity with negligible mineralocorticoid effects, dexamethasone-induced hypertension (DEX-HT) models have been used for studying the mechanisms of glucocorticoid-induced hypertension. This review examines the characteristics and mechanisms of...[Show more]
