Few clinical research projects have generated as much public interest or as many published articles as SUPPORT (Study to Understand Prognoses and Preferences for Outcomes and Risks of Treatments). The first publication of the study's overall results in 1995 (1) generated front-page coverage in many major newspapers as well as multiple television news stories. At last count, data from SUPPORT have formed the basis for more than 62 published articles, including 9 in Annals of Internal Medicine—the latest of which, by Hamel and colleagues (2), appears in this issue. A forthcoming special supplement of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society will contain an additional 30 articles based on the SUPPORT data. Innumerable other articles reference the findings of SUPPORT.
