For hypertensive patients, it has been recommended that antihypertensive treatment strategies be chosen on the basis of the patients' conditions and age. In this sub-analysis of the Candesartan Antihypertensive Survival Evaluation in Japan (CASE-J) trial, we aimed to compare the effects of candesartan and amlodipine on cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in Japanese elderly patients with high-risk hypertension and to determine their optimal target blood pressures (BPs). The effect of the two… CONTINUE READING
