Many drugs have been developed in recent years to treat high blood pressure (or hypertension) and high cholesterol, two major risk factors for heart disease. Recent findings from ALLHAT—the "Antihypertensive and Lipid-Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack Trial"—a major clinical study supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), offer new information about treating both conditions.
