Praktische Konsequenzen der HOPE-Studie


Die HOPE-Studie [15–18] wurde Anfang 2000 in mehreren Arbeiten publiziert. In dieser Übersicht sollen die praktischen Konsequenzen der HOPE-Studie in den Vordergrund gerückt werden. Dazu werden die Hypothesen der Studie, die wesentlichen methodischen Aspekte und die Hauptergebnisse zusammengefasst. Speziell wird wir auf die Bedeutung der Senkung des Blutdrucks und die neuen Daten bei Patienten mit Diabetes mellitus und mit Mikroalbuminurie eingegangen.
