Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'...a well-written basic introduction to the design and conduct of a clinical trial, referring to many cardiovascular examples along the way. It especially singles out topics of quality of life and failures of previous randomised trials. With that in mind, it is a useful contribution to a very important area in medical research.'
Controlled Clinical Trials, 6 (1985)
