Journal of Hypertension
Ta-Chen SuChien-Jen Chen


This study reports the prevalence of hypertension, proportions of awareness, treatment, and control in the 2002 Taiwanese Survey on Hypertension, Hyperglycemia, and Hyperlipidemia (TwSHHH), and compared the changes of hypertension prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control in two recent nationwide surveys. TwSHHH is the second nationwide survey designed to assess the prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control of hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension. The TwSHHH survey applied a multistage, stratified, and random sampling during 2002 with a total of 7566 participants. Among them, 3088 male and 3391 female participants were 19 years old and over and were selected from households throughout Taiwan. The data of Nutrition and Health Survey in Taiwan (NAHSIT), the first nationwide survey to assess disease and nutrition status during 1993-1996, was also applied to compare changes of the prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension between the two surveys. Compared with the NAHSIT, the prevalence of hypertension on TwSHHH decreased significantly in female adults, between 1993-1996 and 2002. In both males and females of all age groups, the awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension significantly a...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.
