Adjuvant Tamsulosin or Nifedipine After Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy for Renal Stones: A Double Blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled Trial. [2011.11]
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of the adjuvant use of tamsulosin or nifedipine after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy for nonlower pole kidney stones 5-20 mm in size... CONCLUSION: The stone-free rates after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy with adjuvant tamsulosin or nifedipine were significantly increased only for nonlower pole renal stones 10-20 mm in size compared with placebo. Nifedipine was associated with more adverse effects than placebo. Copyright A(c) 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

A multicentre, prospective, randomized trial: comparative efficacy of tamsulosin and nifedipine in medical expulsive therapy for distal ureteric stones with renal colic. [2011.07]
OBJECTIVE: * To determine the comparative efficacy of tamsulosin and nifedipine in medical expulsive therapy (MET) for distal ureteric stones with renal colic... CONCLUSIONS: * Administration of tamsulosin and nifedipine in MET was determined to be safe and effective for distal ureteric stones with renal colic. * Tamsulosin was significantly better than nifedipine in relieving renal colic and facilitating ureteric stone expulsion.

Clinical Trials Related to Adalat CC (Nifedipine)

Effects of Adalat LA and Coracten on Drug Levels, Blood Pressure, and Heart Rate in Fed Patients With Hypertension [Completed]
This study compares the effect of Adalat LA to Coracten on drug levels as well as changes in blood pressure and heart rate in fed hypertensive subjects. Subjects are dosed with either Adalat or Coracten for first 2 weeks, followed by the other drug for 2 weeks, and then switched back to the original drug for one day. Blood samples, blood pressure, and heart rate are taken before and after each treatment period.

The Pharmacokinetics of Nifedipine Controlled Release Tablets in Hypertensive Patients on Hemodialysis [Not yet recruiting]
This is a prospective, open, non-randomized, non-controlled study. 20 patients with hypertension on chronic maintenance hemodialysis will be enrolled in the study. All patients had mild to moderate hypertension and are receiving antihypertensive agents.

This study was designed to investigate effects of Adalat GITS on hemodialytic blood pressures in patients with chronic hemodialysis by using ABPM and measuring the drug plasma concentrations. For the purpose of investigating the influence of hemodialysis on the drug plasma concentration as well as its efficacy, it should be necessary to assign the subjects with the Adalat monotherapy. Since most patients in the hemodialysis center will be those who need and already receive combination therapy, it would be practical to start Adalat 60mg/day monotherapy to remain similar antihypertensive effect when discontinuing the previous treatment in this study population to be screened and enrolled. And taking into the consideration of clinical practice, few patients undergoing hemodialysis could be well controlled by low dose Adalat 30mg/day alone. So this study will evaluate the effect and safety of Adalat GITS 60mg/day alone and thereafter the influence of hemodialysis on the drug plasma concentration without any other possible drug interaction. The agents are given orally once a day at 08: 00h and patients are followed for at least 4 weeks. After that,the patients whose blood pressure are well controlled by Adalat GITS 60mg/day by office blood pressure would be enrolled for further ABPM assessment and plasma concentration evaluation.

Low-dose Nifedipine-Valsartan Combination Compared to Up-titrated Valsartan Monotherapy in Essential Hypertension [Recruiting]
This will be a multi-center, prospective, randomized, open-label, parallel design, two arm comparator trial. In the proposed study, the investigators will compare low-dose combination therapy of Nifedipine GITS/OROS plus Valsartan with up-titrated monotherapy of Valsartan with respect to their blood pressure-decreasing effects in patients with essential hypertension. The study consists of a screening visit, followed by randomization and administration of either Nifedipine GITS/OROS 30 mg in combination with Valsartan 80 mg or Valsartan 160 mg for 12 weeks of treatment. The primary efficacy parameters will be mean SBP and DBP on office BP monitoring at 12 weeks of treatment compared to baseline.

An Open Label Study to Examine the Effect of Coated Nifedipine Suppository on Anal Fissure Pain and Healing in Human Subjects [Recruiting]
This is an open label study. The study will consist of 1 treatment group: coated Nifedipine suppository containing 12 mg of Nifedipine, administered BID to subjects with chronic anal fissure.

Study of Nifedipine GITS and Candesartan Combination Compared to Monotherapy in Patients With Essential Hypertension [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to determine the blood pressure lowering responses of various dose combinations of nifedipine GITS and candesartan as compared to treatment with each component on their own (monotherapy) and placebo (a look-alike tablet without active

ingredient). The drugs - nifedipine GITS and candesartan - which are being investigated are

currently approved for use in patients with essential hypertension alone or together with other antihypertensive drugs (combination therapy), but the optimal dose of nifedipine GITS and candesartan used together in the treatment of essential hypertension has not been established yet. In this study patients will be treated with various doses of nifedipine GITS and/or candesartan or placebo. These different regimes will be administered once a day and will be assessed based on their blood pressure lowering effects (mean sitting diastolic blood pressure) in subjects with mild to moderate essential hypertension.
