COMMENT: RAYMOND GIBBONS, Mayo Clinic, Rochester MN

The randomised placebo controlled ADVANCE study of 11000 patients with diabetes has demonstrated that a combination of the ACE inhibitor, perindopril, with the diuretic indapamide can lower blood pressure and mortality. The investigators saw an impact even in patients who did not have high blood pressure. Lead study author Stephen MacMahon said this approach should be included in current practice guidelines. Sarah Maxwell spoke with him at the meeting in Vienna.
