DFG supports scientific network on Aldosterone-Mineralocorticoid receptor signaling

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) supports the formation of a scientific network on ‘Strategies for therapeutic targeting of the Aldosterone-Mineralocorticoid Receptor signaling pathway’ (Speaker: Achim Lother). The network ...

Approaches towards tissue-selective pharmacology of the mineralocorticoid receptor

Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) are highly effective therapies for cardiovascular and renal disease. However, the widespread clinical use of currently available MRAs in cardiorenal medicine is hampered by an increased ...

Reviewed: MR in pulmonary hypertension and RV failure

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is characterized by pulmonary vascular remodelling, leading to progressive increase in pulmonary artery pressure and subsequent right ventricular failure. Aldosterone and the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) are key ...
