The Role of Sympathetic Nervous Activation in Remote Ischemic Preconditioning

+ Healthy males

+ Ages between 18-30 years

+ Ages between 60-75 years 

+ Must be non-smokers

+ Must not be using any medications


What's it about?

Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a type of therapy which has shown effectiveness in reducing the severity of heart attacks. 

 Our research team will determine whether the protection of RIPC can be replicated with drugs that block this activity. It is hoped that this study will demonstrate the importance of inhibiting “fight or flight” responses with RIPC or medication.

QUARTET 

+ Diagnosed with High Blood Pressure

+ Must be over 18 years

+ Not on more than one anti-hypertensive medication

What's it about?

The study aims to investigate whether a single pill containing 4 types of blood pressure lowering medications at quarter- standard doses will more effectively lower blood pressure and have fewer side effects compared to a standard dose of a single type of hypertensive medication. ​Participants will have high blood pressure and are either not currently on treatment, or only taking one blood pressure lowering medication.
