VALORY Study of Valsartan/Hydrochlorizide for Patients Who do Not Respond Adequately to Olmesartan Medoxomil
To evaluate the efficacy of valsartan 160 mg/HCTZ 25 mg in patients not adequately responding to monotherapy with olmesartan medoxomil 40 mg or combination therapy with olmesartan medoxomil 20 mg plus HCTZ 12.5 mg by testing the hypothesis that valsartan 160 mg/HCTZ 25 mg significantly reduces the trough mean sitting diastolic blood pressure (MSDBP) after a 4-week treatment in the nonresponder population.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
valsartan plus hydrochlorothiazide

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A thiazide diuretic with actions and uses similar to those of HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE. It has been used in the treatment of familial hyperkalemia, hypertension, edema, and urinary tract disorders. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p810)
A thiazide diuretic often considered the prototypical member of this class. It reduces the reabsorption of electrolytes from the renal tubules. This results in increased excretion of water and electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium. It is used in the treatment of several disorders including edema, hypertension, diabetes insipidus, and hypoparathyroidism.
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
A thiazide diuretic with properties similar to those of HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p830)
This is a double-blind study to evaluate the reduction in systolic blood pressure using a therapy initiated with valsartan 160 mg or valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 160/12.5 mg comp...
The primary objective of this study is to compare the effectiveness of telmisartan 80 mg/hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg [Micardis HCT] to valsartan 160 mg/hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg [Diovan HCT]...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of initial treatment therapy with valsartan/HCTZ versus the initial treatment therapy with monotherapies (valsartan or hydro...
The purpose of this study is to determine potential pharmacokinetic drug-drug interaction when three drugs (valsartan, amlodipine, and hydrochlorothiazide) are co-administered.
BP-EASE -Effectiveness of Losartan 50 mg/Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 12.5 mg Versus Valsartan 80 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg Titrated as Needed in Patients With Essential Hypertension Not Controlled on Monotherapy
To evaluate the blood pressure efficacy between losartan and valsartan at equivalent dosage during a 3 months treatment.
To determine the effectiveness and safety of once-daily combination therapy with amlodipine, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide for reducing ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) in patients with moderate to...
The steady-state pharmacokinetic (PK) interaction potential between amlodipine (10 mg), valsartan (320 mg), and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ; 25 mg) was evaluated in patients with hypertension in a multi...
The effect of antihypertensive drugs on lipoprotein subfraction profile is still under investigation. In this study the effects of fixed combination of valsartan with either amlodipine (V-A) or hydroc...
Introduction: This review focuses on the role of the fixed-dose combination (FDC) drug valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in the treatment of hypertension. Effective blood pressure control often is...
