Roles of Hydrogen Sulfide in Hypertension Development and Its Complications: What, So What, Now What.

Hypertension 2023 March 8
Hypertension is a multicause health challenge, and hydrogen sulfide (H2 S) is a multifunctional gasotransmitter. A critical pathologic role of endogenous H2 S deficiency in the development of hypertension was established 15 years ago based on animal studies, setting the stage for examining the wide spectrum of cardiovascular effects and the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms of H2 S. We are also starting to gain a better understanding of the role of altered H2 S metabolism in human hypertension. The purpose of this article is to examine our current understanding of the roles played by H2 S in the development of hypertension in both animals and humans. Additionally, H2 S-based antihypertension therapeutic strategies are reviewed. Is H2 S at the root of hypertension and one of the solutions for the same? The probability is very high.
