From the authors: “Our study opens new possibilities and sets the stage to explore if low-dose combination treatment could have clinical benefits for [salt-sensitive] individuals. However, there is a need for more research studies and higher dosing, in different animal models and diverse genetic backgrounds, to completely close the existing gap in knowledge.” 

This study is highlighted as one of August’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
