Title

Treatment with blood pressure and blood cholesterol lowering drugs should be based on an individual’s absolute cardiovascular risk.

Output type: Journal article

Other relevant details: Equal co-principal investigator and equal co-author. Systematic review of literature on alcohol and vascular disease, showing that many claims of a protective effect were exaggerated and were chiefly due to methodological defects in the component studies.

Title

Blood pressure indices and cardiovascular disease in the Asia Pacific region.

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Hypertension
Month/year of publication: July 2003
Pagination: 69-75
Volume: 42
ISSN: 1524-4563
DOI: 10.1161/01.HYP.0000075083.04415.4B ?

Number of additional co-authors: 4
Other relevant details: Did the statistical analyses and co-wrote the paper equally with the first author. Among 100,000 adults in 16 Asian prospective studies, systolic blood pressure was more important than diastolic blood pressure for predicting heart disease and stroke risk.
