Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a condition in which, over time, the force of the blood against artery walls is high enough that it may cause health problems, such as heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Nearly half of adults in the U.S. have hypertension and only about 1 in 4 adults with hypertension have their condition under control.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition in which the kidneys gradually lose function. Kidneys help regulate blood pressure, and high blood pressure can also damage kidneys. Controlling blood pressure can be a significant challenge for people with CKD.
Meridian is now conducting a clinical research study for an investigational medication intended to help control hypertension in patients with uncontrolled hypertension and CKD.
