Top Clinical Trials 2019


By views, here are the top 10 trials on for 2019, in alphabetical order. Some were first presented in 2018 or even earlier, but trial updates were presented in 2019 and highly viewed. This certainly attests to the ongoing scientific contributions that can come from randomized trials beyond the primary analysis. ISCHEMIA topped the list by an enormous margin, even though it was on the list for only a month, with the remainder of the listed trials clustered relatively close together. It is amazing to see diabetes trials represented so prominently – a sign of the evolution of cardiology to both study and treat all cardiovascular risk factors.
