Abstract

This study aimed to answer the question whether antihypertensive treatment benefited symptomless persons with mild hypertension. It was a single blind prospective controlled trial in men and women aged 30 to 69 years, who, at population screening, had diastolic blood pressure (V) (DBP) from 95 to 109mmHg, and systolic blood pressure (SBP) under 200mmHg.
