Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Between October 2006 and September 2008 a total of 4,203 participants aged 50 - 85 years were randomized at 82 clinical sites.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Prior to randomization, participants had to complete the Qualification phase. They could only be randomized if they took at least 75% of the run-in medication.
