Summary

The CandLE study with at maximum daily dose of 32 mg candesartan or 16/12. 5 mg candesartan/hydrochlorothiazide has the objective to evaluate under naturalistic conditions, i. e. under routine medical care conditions, the impact of the antihypertensive therapy with candesartan or candesartan/HCT on relevant medical parameters related to the left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) as well as the efficacy and tolerability of candesartan or candesartan/HCT in subjects suffering from essential hypertension..

Clinical Details

Official title: Candesartan and Candesartan/ Hydrochlorothiazide in the Treatment of Patients With Essential Hypertension and a Concomitant Disease Left Ventricular Hypertrophy

Study design: Cohort, Prospective

Primary outcome: to estimate under naturalistic conditions the impact of the antihypertensive therapy with candesartan or candesartan/HCT on pre-post change from Visit 1 to Visit 2 of Sokolow-Lyon index, Cornell index and Left Ventricular Mass Index.

to estimate the change of the systolic and diastolic blood pressure, separately by the (maximum) prescribed daily dose of candesartan or candesartan/ HCT

to gain further insight into the occurrence of unknown, unexpected and/or rarely occurring adverse events (AE) by estimating the incidence under naturalistic conditions.
