Salt Loading & Thiazide Intervention Study (SALTI)
Principal Investigator: Yen-Pei (Christy) Chang, Ph.D.
Based on our exciting finding with STK39, we have initiated a new study to address (1) why some people can get rid of excess salt
and water and control their blood pressure, but other people have high blood pressure and need to be medicated to control their blood
pressure; and (2) why a commonly prescribed blood pressure medication, thiazide, only works in some, but not all high blood
pressure patients. We plan to recruit 120 participants in 2 years. Participants of the SALTI study will spend half a day in our clinic
and take thiazide for 4 weeks. If you would be willing to participate in this study, please contact us in writing or by telephone (717)
392-4948 at the Amish Research Clinic. You don’t have to have elevated blood pressure to participate.
