AIMS Large randomized trials have shown that beta-blockers reduce mortality and hospital admissions in patients with heart failure. [...] Key MethodMETHODS AND RESULTS We randomly assigned 2128 patients aged >/=70 years with a history of heart failure (hospital admission for heart failure within the previous year or known ejection fraction </=35%), 1067 to nebivolol (titrated from 1.25 mg once daily to 10 mg once daily), and 1061 to placebo.Expand
