- PreviewIn the article “Antihypertensive Medication Regimen Intensity and Incident Dementia in an Older Population” by Tan et al, the authors reported that in a prospective observational population-based cohort of 1208 older persons (mean age: 84.1 ± 5.6), use of a higher number of antihypertensive drug (AHD) classes was associated with a lower dementia risk during 6 years of follow-up.1 Cox regression was used to estimate hazard ratios (HRs), and competing risk of death was adjusted for using the subdistribution hazard method of Fine and Gray.
