Hypertension in 2017: Update in treatment and pharmaceutical innovations.

Siafaka, Karantas, Okur, Okur
Hypertension can be referred as modern scourge in 2017 and although, it seems that an improvement has been done during the passage of time, the full treatment still remains an unmet achievement for clinicians. Hypertension incidence in Mediterranean countries, especially Greece and Turkey, seems to be increasing irrespective the expected protective effect of Mediterranean diet. The changed lifestyle and dietary habits of both populations leaded to advanced cardiovascular events as well as arteriosclerosis which linked with high blood pressure. From statistic aspect, as in this work reviewed, it has been found out that gender, age, socio-demographic characteristics and geographical location could promote the hypertension prevalence. Given these facts, as well as that the current pharmaceutical formulations do not present the optimal results on hypertension management, summing up the ongoing research on hypertension field is in high demand. Consequently, the development of novel solutions for high blood pressure management either with new synthesized drugs or fascinated drug delivery systems is required. Moreover, adopting another lifestyle and diet also play a crucial role against hypertension. This review is aimed to assist researchers working on hypertension management by summarizing update guidelines, various case reports describing hypertension related with other diseases, current medications and newly synthesized drug delivery systems recently found on literature.
