An international database of prospective studies of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was set up in 2001, and will include at least eight individual studies. The goals are to enable analyses that cannot be made reliably from the individual studies, such as the predictive value of different measures of blood pressure, for example the morning surge and blood pressure variability, the ability to look at the prediction of specific endpoints, for example stroke versus myocardial infarction, and also to look at differences in different populations.
