Single-Drug Therapy for Hypertension in Men: A Comparison of Six Antihypertensive Agents with Placebo
In this article, the Veterans Affairs Cooperative Study Group detailed a rather large double-blind study in which six different

an important role in an antihypertensive agent's effectiveness.
Presented in part at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions, Anaheim, California, November 11, 1991.
