Second, the differences between therapeutic and preventive trials and finally the public health relevance of such trials. To illustrate my views I shall use selected examples from trials well known to all of you. According to Peter Armitage (1) the first randomised controlled trial was conducted by the Medical Resarch Council (MRC) on streptomyicin in 1948.

Introduction Chances of a major cardiovascular catastrophe before age 60 are one in three inmost affl uent countri es and one in fi ve men wi 11 have a coronary attack before that age. Women lag men in incidence by ten years, but cardiovascular disease is also their chief cause of death. Coronary disease must be anticipated and prevented because one in five attacks present with sudden death as the first, last and only symptom and half of all coronary deaths are sudden deaths (1) . Fortunately, vul nerabil ity can be readil y assessed from a ri sk profile comprised of blood lipids, blood pressure, fibrinogen, glucose, cigarette habit and ECG findings using only ordinary office procedures and simple laboratory tests (2).
