Abstract

Epidemiologic studies have repeatedly shown a positive correlation between blood pressure and both coronary and cerebral mortality. Moreover, there is also a positive correlation between serum cholesterol and blood pressure. Nevertheless, randomised, controlled drug treatment hypertension trials have failed to achieve a favorable reduction of the incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD), in contrast to cerebral artery disease which has been significantly reduced by drug treatment.
