  • Describe how a relatively common endocrine disorder can affect kidney function if BP is not controlled
  • Discuss new agents that are in Phase III trials and soon to be released for treatment of hypertension
  • Assess agents that show promise as long acting once-daily or twice-yearly agents to control BP
  • Identify mechanisms of novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of hypertension
