Of the 6105 patients enrolled, there was a 28% RRR for recurrent stroke for those assigned active treatment over placebo (10% vs 14% stroke incidence). The overall reduction in recurrent stroke risk was comparable to the reduction in primarily initial stroke risk seen in the HOPE study (32%) and included reduction in the outcome endpoints of nonfatal or disabling stroke (24%), ischemic stroke (24%), and cerebral hemorrhage (50%). Combination therapy with perindopril plus indapamide reduced BP by 12/5 mm Hg and stroke risk by 43%, whereas perindopril alone reduced BP by 5/3 mm Hg and had no significant effect on stroke risk.

A pretreatment computed tomography (CT) scan was required to exclude the presence of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). To minimize the risk of treatment-related ICH, strict inclusion and exclusion criteria were adhered to. After treatment, blood pressure was strictly maintained within prespecified values, and the use of antiplatelets and anticoagulants was not permitted for 24 hours. The trial was conducted in two parts. Part 1 included 291 patients and was designed to assess the early clinical efficacy of tPA measured by an improvement in the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score by four or more points or complete neurological recovery 24 hours after stroke onset.
