Recent observations from the University of Utah Cardiovascular Genetics Research Clinic and published data from other studies are cited. Several biochemical tests show strong associations with hypertension and substantial major gene and or poly genie determination including: urinary kallikrein eeretion, intracellular sodium concentration.
