Phase N/A Results

Results

In the group assigned to receive 30 mg of aspirin, the frequency of death from vascular causes, nonfatal stroke, or nonfatal myocardial infarction was 228 of 1555 (14.7%) as compared with 240 of 1576 (15.2%) in the group assigned to receive 283 mg. There were slightly fewer major bleeding complications in the 30-mg group than in the 283-mg group (40 vs. 53), and significantly fewer reports of minor bleeding (49 vs. 84). Patients on atenolol had a risk of 97/732 (13.3%) for the combined outcome event versus a risk of 95/741 (12.8%) for those on placebo (adjusted hazard ratio, 1.00; 95% confidence interval, 0.76-1.33).
