The importance of salt and aldosterone in hypertension and cardiovascular disease has become increasingly clear. Hyperaldosteronism accounts for up to 10% of hypertension and its adverse consequences, mmHg of blood pressure rise, are worse than those observed with essential hypertension. This satellite meeting will explore new findings on the molecular aetiology, diagnosis and cardiovascular and renal consequences of hyperaldosteronism, and new pathways in tubular salt handling, including the molecular events that underlie Gordon's syndrome. Mechanisms of aldosterone and salt-related cardiovascular pathogenesis will be explored at the molecular, cellular, tissue and clinical level. Novel therapeutic approaches to mineralocorticoid blockade will also be covered. Internationally renowned speakers will be drawn from around the world and abstract submission for poster presentations will also be encouraged. Far North Queensland, where the rainforest meets the Coral Sea provides an idyllic setting for this 2 day meeting. We hope to see you there.
Aldosterone & Salt is a satellite conference to the 24th Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hypertension, Sydney Sept 29 - Oct 4, 2012.
