Published Studies Related to Bisoprolol and Hydrochlorothiazide (Bisoprolol / Hydrochlorothiazide)
Low-dose fixed combination of bisoprolol/hydrochlorothiazide as first line for hypertension: a review of the rationale and clinical evidence. [2009.10]
Essential hypertension is a heterogeneous multifactorial disease. Data from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey and from the World Health Organization have clearly demonstrated that, worldwide, less than 30% of hypertensive patients are adequately controlled by our currently accepted blood pressure goals...
Short-term electrophysiological effects of losartan, bisoprolol, amlodipine, and hydrochlorothiazide in hypertensive men. 
BACKGROUND AND AIM: Hypertension-induced left ventricular structural remodelling associates with repolarization abnormalities. We investigated if antihypertensive drugs can modulate ventricular repolarization... CONCLUSION: Losartan and bisoprolol have beneficial short-term ECG repolarization effects. Amlodipine seems to have no repolarization effects. HCTZ seems to prolong the ECG TPE interval, potentially reflecting increased repolarization heterogeneity. These findings show that antihypertensive drugs may relatively rapidly and treatment-specifically modulate ECG markers of ventricular repolarization.

Laboratory tests as predictors of the antihypertensive effects of amlodipine, bisoprolol, hydrochlorothiazide and losartan in men: results from the randomized, double-blind, crossover GENRES Study. [2008.06]
OBJECTIVE: Individual blood pressure responses to antihypertensive therapy are difficult to predict. To improve optimization of antihypertensive therapy, we analyzed correlations of relevant laboratory tests with blood pressure responses to four antihypertensive monotherapies... CONCLUSIONS: In this carefully controlled study, marked individual variations in antihypertensive drug responsiveness were found to correlate to several baseline laboratory parameters. The negative correlation between serum calcium levels and amlodipine responses is intriguing and suggests an underlying mechanistic association. Collectively, our data imply that laboratory tests may have some value in prediction of the efficacy of various antihypertensive drug therapies, although great patient-to-patient variation remains an obstacle for exact predictive classification.
[The clinical efficiency and safety of bisoprolol hydrochlorothiazide in patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension] [2006.07]
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy and safety of bisoprolol/hydrochlorothiazide (Lodoz) in patients with mild and moderate essential hypertension... CONCLUSION: Lodoz (2.5 mg/6.25 mg and 5 mg/6.25 mg) can effectively reduce the 24 hours blood pressure in patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension.
Clinical Trials Related to Bisoprolol and Hydrochlorothiazide (Bisoprolol / Hydrochlorothiazide)
An Active-controlled, Clinical Trial to Assess Central Haemodynamic Effects of Bisoprolol in Hypertensive Patients [Recruiting]
Antihypertensive drugs aim to reduce blood pressure (BP) either through decrease of the
total peripheral resistance through vasodilatation at the level of arterioles
(microcirculation) or by decreasing the cardiac output through reduction of the stroke
volume or heart rate or both. On the other hand, all antihypertensives drugs might
potentially decrease arterial stiffness passively with the reduction of the distending
pressure or with the re synchronisation of the reflected pressure wave. With theses
potential mechanisms, it is also expected that these drugs might exert a favourable effect
on pulse pressure amplification between central and peripheral arteries.
However, there is a solid evidence that the widely applied antihypertensive drugs has
differential effect on brachial and central BP. Several reports in the past has confirmed
the potential hypothesis that beta blockers decrease central BP less than the observed
reduction at the level of the brachial artery. It has been hypothesised that deceleration of
heart rate and the re synchronizing the reflected pressure wave earlier in the systolic
phase seems to be the leading cause of non-favourable effect of beta blockers on central BP,
these effects might be partially counterbalanced in beta blockers with high beta-1
selectivity resulting in less peripheral vasoconstriction properties.
The primary and secondary hypothesis for this prospective, multi-center, randomised, open
label, active-controlled clinical trial are as follows:
- Treatment with bisoprolol for 12 weeks significantly reduces the aortic pulse pressure
as compared to atenolol group
- Treatment with bisoprolol for 12 weeks significantly reduces the aortic BP as compared
to atenolol group
- The efficacy of bisoprolol in reducing peripheral BP is comparable with that of

A Randomized Controlled Study to Assess the Effects of Bisoprolol and Atenolol on Resting Heart Rate and Sympathetic Nervous System's Activity in Subjects With Essential Hypertension [Recruiting]
This is a phase IV, prospective, multi-centric and randomized controlled study to compare
the effects of bisoprolol and atenolol on resting heart rate (RHR) and sympathetic nervous
system's (SNS) activity in subjects with essential hypertension. A total of 192 subjects are
planned to be enrolled in various centers in China.

This is a 24-week, prospective, multicenter, open-label, single arm study to assess the
effect of bisoprolol on glycemic level in Type II diabetes mellitus (DM) controlled subjects
with hypertension. The hypothesis of study is that there is no change in glycemic level and
lipid metabolism as determined by HbA1C using bisoprolol in Type II DM subjects with
suboptimal blood pressure (BP) control.
