MedPage Today highlighted a recent study published by Dr. Cecilia P. Chung and colleagues. Their article showed that rates of resistant hypertension were doubled among patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which increased their mortality risks substantially. The retrospective study was based on data from Vanderbilt Medical Center.

The study was supported by the Rheumatology Research Foundation, the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine's Research Immersion Program, the Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, the Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Synthetic Derivative, the NIH, the Lupus Research Alliance, and the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases.
