Preclinical Research
Microglia Cells

We are studying the role of microglia cells in neurogenic hypertension. Experimental results show that activating microglia cells and proinflammatory cytokines in the parventricular nucleus contributes to neurogenic hypertension. Inflammatory processes have a fundamental role in the pathophysiology of stroke. We are pursuing the hypothesis that hypertension is an inflammatory disease of the brain.
