Blood Pressure & Hypertension has
been written by Dr P. Laurent, MD, PhD, upon his medical experience of
internal medicine and cardiology.
Initially, he wanted to share medical
information about high blood pressure and wrote this site while he was
practicing cardiology in a French hospital. So, Blood Pressure & Hypertension
is not back up by a pharmaceutical company and there is no conflict of
interest. This point is essential to protect the independence of Blood-pressure-hypertension.com.
Interested by medical research in
vascular disease and high blood pressure, Dr P. Laurent has also passed
his PhD in Paris and continues to publish some papers.
Here are some articles and posters
published by Dr P. Laurent since 1995 :
