Yeah, atenolol is a little tricky to find. It's an old drug that was introduced in 1976. The fda has stuff on it though. The prescribing information can be found at:

I couldn't find anything requarding BP reduction in it, though.

On the subject of these studies, I always find it interesting that the placebo always seem to get some positive results.
