Salt Loading & Thiazide Intervention Study (SALTI)

Principal Investigator: Yen-Pei (Christy) Chang, Ph.D.

Based on our exciting finding with STK39, we are now addressing (1) why some people can get rid of excess salt
and water and control their blood pressure, but other people have high blood pressure and need to be medicated to control their blood
pressure; and (2) why a commonly prescribed blood pressure medication, thiazide, only works in some, but not all high blood
pressure patients.
