Fewer Cardiovascular Events With Intensive Blood Pressure Control

JAMA. 2021;326(4):299. doi:10.1001/jama.2021.11749

The final report of the landmark Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) confirmed the benefits of intensive blood pressure control.

In the new analysis, the investigators examined additional data from SPRINT and from an observational postintervention period after the trial was halted early due to significantly favorable outcomes in the participants receiving intensive blood pressure treatment.
