This large study, initiated in 1997 against the background of the wide usage of atenolol (beta-blocker) and thiazide diuretic, has shown the benefit of newer agents (amlodipine and perindopril) in the treatment of hypertensive patients with cardiovascular risk. The results of the study were announced at the European Society of Cardiology Congress held in Stockholm recently.
