Authors’ reply to Cunningham and Messerli and colleagues

Cunningham raises two important points about bias and external validity.1 2 We agree that the age of patients in trials does not reflect that of patients with heart failure in the community, and comment on this point in our discussion. To improve the applicability of future research, we must as researchers enrol patients who reflect the true population. Just as importantly, as clinicians we need to temper our preconceptions about treatment efficacy versus tolerability with the knowledge that in double blinded trials, β blockers are highly effective and well tolerated. In this context, it is wrong to equate these data with …

Despite this, very few children from families with the condition are currently assessed in the United Kingdom.
