Comparative Effects of Rauwolfia Serpentina, Phenobarbital and Placebo in the Same Hypertensive Patients in Office Practice - A Controlled Drug Assay

Authors: J. J. KIRSCHENFELD, M.D.

Abstract

First, this study demonstrates that good clinical research can be carried on in the private practitioner's office. Secondly, it puts a certain antihypertensive drug in its proper perspective, showing that it apparently has definite effectiveness but that this effect is not invariable because of differing responses in different patients,—an important thought every physician should keep in mind in the use of any drug.
