Published Studies Related to Amlobenz (Amlodipine / Benazepril)

Comparative efficacy and safety of amlodipine/benazepril combination therapy and amlodipine monotherapy in severe hypertension. [2010.06]
This multicentre, double-blind, trial in subjects with severe hypertension compared the efficacy and tolerability of two parallel drug regimens: A/B (amlodipine/benazepril: 5/20 or 10/40 mg daily, if necessary) with A (amlodipine: 5 or 10 mg daily, if necessary)... We conclude that titration of amlodipine and benazepril in single-pill combinations is more effective than titration of amlodipine alone for rapid BP control in patients with severe hypertension.

An eight-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind study to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of fixed-dose amlodipine/benazepril combination in comparison with amlodipine as first-line therapy in chinese patients with mild to moderate hypertension. [2008.06]
CONCLUSIONS: In this group of patients, comparable antihypertensive effects were seen with the fixed-dose combination therapy, compared with amlodipine monotherapy. Both treatments appeared well tolerated in the studied population, but cough was more common in the fixed-dose combination group.

The effects of high-dose amlodipine/benazepril combination therapies on blood pressure reduction in patients not adequately controlled with amlodipine monotherapy. [2007.03]
BACKGROUND: This study compared the efficacy and safety of amlodipine/benazepril (10/40 mg/day and 10/20 mg/day) with amlodipine 10 mg/day in patients whose blood pressure (BP) was not adequately controlled with amlodipine monotherapy... CONCLUSION: Amlodipine/benazepril combinations were well tolerated and resulted in significant BP reductions and better BP responder rates than amlodipine monotherapy.

Comparative efficacy and safety of amlodipine/benazepril combination therapy and amlodipine monotherapy in severe hypertension. [2010]
This multicentre, double-blind, trial in subjects with severe hypertension compared the efficacy and tolerability of two parallel drug regimens: A/B (amlodipine/benazepril: 5/20 or 10/40 mg daily, if necessary) with A (amlodipine: 5 or 10 mg daily, if necessary)... We conclude that titration of amlodipine and benazepril in single-pill combinations is more effective than titration of amlodipine alone for rapid BP control in patients with severe hypertension.

Compliance with antihypertensive therapy in the elderly: a comparison of fixed-dose combination amlodipine/benazepril versus component-based free-combination therapy. [2008]
BACKGROUND: Treatment regimens that require fewer dosage units and less frequent dosing to decrease the complexity and cost of care are among the strategies recommended to improve compliance with antihypertensive therapy. Simplifying therapy may be particularly important for elderly patients, who are more likely to have co-morbid conditions and to be taking multiple medications. OBJECTIVE: To determine rates of compliance with antihypertensive therapy and total costs of care among elderly Medicaid recipients treated with fixed-dose combination amlodipine besylate/benazepril versus a dihydropyridine calcium channel antagonist and ACE inhibitor prescribed as separate agents (free combination)... CONCLUSION: Use of fixed-dose amlodipine besylate/benazepril HCl by elderly Medicaid recipients was associated with improved compliance and lower healthcare costs compared with a dihydropyridine calcium channel antagonist and ACE inhibitor prescribed as separate agents.
