Human Cytomegalovirus is the Cause of Essential Hypertension

Authors: Ilija Barukčić

Objective: To our knowledge, no study has provided strict evidence of a clear relationship between a human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection and human essential hypertension (EH). Methods: To examine the possible role of HCMV in the etiology of EH, a literature searched through the electronic database PubMed was performed. Data were accurately assessed and re-analyzed by new statistical methods. Results: The meta-analysis results of this study provide evidence that HCMV infection and essential hypertension are connected. Conclusions: Without HCMV infection no EH. Keywords: Human cytomegalovirus, essential hypertension, causal relationship.
