Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time from randomisation to first occurrence of any event from the composite of CV death, MI or stroke [ Time Frame: Up to 58 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevention of CV death. The efficacy variable is time from randomisation to death of CV cause [ Time Frame: Up to 58 months ]
  2. Prevention of MI. The efficacy variable is time from randomisation to first occurrence of MI [ Time Frame: Up to 58 months ]
  3. Prevention of ischaemic stroke. The efficacy variable is time from randomisation to first occurrence of ischaemic stroke [ Time Frame: Up to 58 months ]
  4. Prevention of all-cause death. The efficacy variable is time from randomisation to death of any cause [ Time Frame: Up to 58 months ]
