I. The 7th Report of the Joint National Committee on
Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of
High Blood Pressure has just published.

The summary of the report are described as follows;

1. In persons older that 50 years, systolic blood
pressure (BP) of more than 140 mmHg is a much
more important cardiovascular disease (CVD)
risk factor than diastolic BP.
2. The risk of CVD, beginning at 115/75 mmHg,
doubles with each increment of 20/10 mmHg;
individuals who are normotensive at 55 years of
age have a 90% lifetime risk for developing
3. Individuals with a systolic BP of 120 to 139 mmHg or
a diastolic BP of 80 to 89 mmHg should be
considered as pre-hypertensive and require health-
promoting lifestyle modifications to prevent CVD.
4. Thiazide-type diuretics should be used in drug
treatment for most patients with uncomplicated
hypertension, either alone or combined with drugs
from other classes. Certain high-risk conditions are
compelling indications for the initial use of other
antihypertensive drug classes (angiotensin-
converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor
blockers, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers).
5. Most patients with hypertension will require 2 or
more antihypertensive medications to achieve goal
BP (< 140/90 mmHg, or < 130/80 mmHg for patients
with diabetes or chronic kidney disease).
6. If BP is more than 20/10 mmHg above goal BP,
consideration should be given to initiating therapy
with 2 agents, 1 of which usually should be
thiazide-type diuretic.
7. The most effective therapy prescribed by the most
careful clinician will control hypertension only if
patients are motivated.
II. What are the changing points in JNC7 from JNC6?

III. Goal of Therapy and the Target Blood Pressure
1. The JNC 7 Guideline mentions that the ultimate public
health goal of antihypertensive therapy is the
reduction of cardiovascular and renal morbidity and
2. The target blood pressure remains unchanged as
<140/90 mmHg.
For patients with diabetes or chronic kidney disease
the target blood pressure should be <130/80 mmHg.
IV. Classification and Management of Blood Pressure for Adults
Aged 18 years or Older

The new classification of hypertension and the management of BP are provided in

the guideline as shown in the following table.

V. Guideline basis for compelling indications for individual
drug classes
The JNC 7 guideline mentions that the certain high-risk
conditions are compelling indications for the initial use of
other antihypertensive drug classes, such as ACE-Is, ARBs,
beta-blockers, CCBs.
The compelling indications for antihypertensive drugs are
based on benefits from outcome studies or existing clinical
guideline; the compelling indication is managed in parallel
with the blood pressure; ex, ACC/AHA Heart Failure

VI. Implication
1. Only diuretic become the first recommended
drug for the patients with hypertension, and all
kinds of antihypertensive drugs, such as ACE-
Is, ARBs, beta-blockers, CCBs can be
combined with diuretic in the case BP is not
2. The patients with compelling indications ACE-
Is, ARBs, Beta-Blockers, CCBs etc. should be
used despite of the stage of the BP
classification based on the recently published
mega trials and the existing clinical guideline.
3. Especially, ACE-Is can be applied for all kinds
of compelling indications.
