Abstract

HOMED-BP study aims to establish an optimal target blood pressure (BP) level based on BP values self-measured at home (home BP), supported by information technology. Subjects are automatically randomized to either more intensive BP-lowering group or less intensive one and to regimens based on one of three initial drugs. BP values are collected via the Internet and study database is automatically updated. The study has started since 2001 and 1953 patients participate in the study.
