Pitavastatin, a representative statin-series anti-dyslipidemic drug, and Valsartan, a representative ARB-series anti-hypertensive drug, have been authorized for use also in South Korea. They have been tested in many countries and proved to be effective and safe. The concurrence of dyslipidemia and hypertension has a higher rate, hence statin-series drugs and antihypertensive drugs are simultaneously administered to such patients. The combined administration of statin-series drugs and CCB-series drugs have.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Randomized, Double Blind, Double Dummy, Placebo Controlled Phase III Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety of Coadministered Pitavastatin and Valsartan in Patients With Hypertension and Dyslipidemia(COCTAIL Study)

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: The experimental group should be compared with control group in the change of DBP and LDL-C on the basis of the baseline.

Secondary outcome:

Change from Baseline in Systolic Blood Pressure at 6 months.

The changes and rate of lipid variables (TG, TC, HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B)

Detailed description: This clinical trial was conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the combined administration of Pitavastatin and Valsartan to ethnic Koreans with dyslipidemia concurrent with hypertension, as well as to research the influence on the pharmacodynamic interaction between the two drugs.
