(1) Assessment of Treatment with Lisinopril and Survival. A trial comparing the effects of high to low doses of Zestril®/lisinopril on morbidity and mortality (M&M) in patients with CHF.
 
Logistics
Randomised, double-blind, parallel-group; 3164 patients.
 
Conclusion
Combined risk of mortality and hospitalisation was 12% lower in the high-dose group.
 
(2) Acolysis during Treatment of Lesions Affecting Saphenous Vein Bypass Grafts. A trial evaluating the use of percutaneous CUT for managing thrombosed coronary SVGs.
 
Primary endpoint
Composite (minimum) lumen diameter <30%, TIMI-3 flow, 30-day freedom from MACE; was achieved in 54% of CUT patients vs 73% of abciximab patients.
 
Logistics
Randomised, controlled, multicentre; 191 patients (92 CUT, 89 abciximab followed by PCI).
 
Conclusion
CUT should not be used during PCI of thrombosed SVGs.

Intervention
A highly scripted 10-session curriculum.
 
Results
New substance use and anabolic steroid use decreased by 50%; drinking and driving decreased by 25%; decreased use of drugs, alcohol and performance-enhancing agents; increased exercise and nutrition.

The first and most significant obstacle is that it appears extremely difficult to find a plausible reason why the play would have been titled 'Telamon' rather than 'Ajax' in the light of the popularity of the character, who was far more usually referred to by his first name than by the shortened form of his patronymic.

Teucro, hijo de Telamon, que participo junto a Heracles en la conquista de Troya (29), y hermano de Ayax (30), tras ser expulsado de su patria recalo entre otros lugares a la Peninsula Iberica como se extrae del Epitome de Justino:
Sintetizando bastante sus vicisitudes podriamos decir que en el se manifestaban verdaderamente las caracteristicas precarias de los mortales: le echaron de varios sitios donde habia armado jaleo y se habia metido en lios (en Egina, por haber matado a un hermanastro junto a su hermano Telamon; en Tesalia por haber matado accidentalmente al suegro Eurition durante una caceria; en Iolco donde fue derrotado en la lucha por Atlanta y donde fue acusado falsamente de ultraje por Astidamia, la mujer del rey Acasto que, enamorada de el, se vio rechazada.
Pero sucede que un oyente, A, se fija en el dato de que participo en el saqueo de Troya (sabe que el hijo de Telamon se suicido antes de la toma de Troya); y otro, B, repara en el dato sobre Casandra (sabe que el hijo de Oileo la violo en el saqueo).
