EditorialPor: Garry L.R. Jennings. Hypertension. 2013; 62: 3-7.

The era of mega trials may not be over but is certainly in decline, and in the past 2 years there have been no studies reporting primary outcome data the scale of the Antihypertensive and Lipid-Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack Trial (ALLHAT), The ONgoing Telmisartan Alone and in combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial (ONTARGET), Anglo -Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial (ASCOT), and other major studies that marked clinical trial activity and informed guideline committees during the past 2 to 3 decades.
