The purpose of this study is to assess the validity and usefulness of omics signatures for improved identification and risk stratification of patients with endocrine hypertension and stratification of patients with primary hypertension.


Arterial hypertension is the most important cause of death in the world. At referral hypertension centers about 25% of patients have a single cause for hypertension, so-called secondary hypertension, mostly of endocrine, adrenal origin (primary aldosteronism, pheochromocytoma/ paraganglioma, Cushing's syndrome). This rate steps up to 50% in patients with drug resistant hypertension. Proper treatment of secondary hypertension improves prognosis considerably but depends on adequate diagnosis. Classically the diagnosis of such forms of hypertension rests on cumbersome biochemical and imaging procedures that may not completely take away uncertainty. Modern '-omics' techniques (genomics, metabolomics, proteomics of plasma and urine) may allow faster and better diagnosis. In addition, they may provide a basis for stratification of hypertensive patients that do not have a identifiable cause of hypertension, so-called primary hypertension. This stratification may help predicting response to antihypertensive drugs and determining prognosis and thus, help to establish personalized medicine in hypertension care.
