Five-Year Survival of Patients with Malignant Hypertension Treated with Antihypertensive Agents
In this article, Freis and Mohler, a medical student at Georgetown University, reported the findings of their five-year study
on the survival rate among patients with malignant hypertension. They concluded that treatment with antihypertensive agents
prior to renal failure greatly enhanced a patient's chances for survival, and even proved to provide a greater chance
for patients who also had advanced atherosclerosis as a result of prolonged high blood pressure. Freis and Mohler also noted
that African American patients who received treatment lived almost as long as white patients in the study.
