Summary

This study compared the blunting effect of aliskiren and valsartan monotherapies on exercise-induced rises in systolic blood pressure in patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension.

Clinical Details

Official title: An Eight-week, Randomized, Double-blind, Parallel-group, Pilot Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Aliskiren 300 mg in Comparison With Valsartan 320 mg in Patients With Mild to Moderate Hypertension During Exercise After a Missed Dose

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Change in Resting vs. Peak Heart Rate Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) From Baseline to Week 8 After a Missed Dose

Secondary outcome:

Change in Resting vs. Peak Heart Rate Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) From Baseline to Week 8

Change in Resting vs. Peak Heart Rate Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) From Week 8 (End of Active Treatment) to 24-hours After a Missed Dose

Eligibility

Minimum age: 50 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.

Criteria:

Inclusion criteria:

- Mean sitting systolic blood pressure ≥ 140 mmHg and < 180 mmHg measured at rest

- Patients able to exercise and to reach 85% of their predicted heart rate during a

standard exercise test on a treadmill according to the Bruce Protocol Exclusion criteria:

- Patients not confident in exercising or not able to exercise
