Condition(s) targeted: Blood Pressure; Ischemic Stroke

Intervention: Fimasartan (Drug); Valsartan (Drug); Atenolol (Drug)

Phase: Phase 4

Status: Active, not recruiting

Sponsored by: Ajou University School of Medicine


Confirm central blood pressure reduction effect of Fimasartan, Valsartan and Atenolol and compare correlation with the measured peripheral (central blood pressure, pulse wave velocity, and flow-mediated dilation) and cerebral blood flow factors (transcranial doppler findings, cerebral blood flow volume) in acute ischemic stroke patients with hypertension.
