3 x 3 Factorial Trial of Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide in Patients With Essential Hypertension
1. To investigate the dose response of the combination therapy, Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide for the Japanese patients with Essential Hypertension.
2. To compare this dose response with that in the US study.
This is an 8-week multicentre, randomised, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo-controlled, parallel group study utilizing all cells of a 3 x 3 factorial design. Following Screening examinations and a 4-week Placebo Run-In Period, 540 patients will be randomized to receive once-daily monotherapy with either telmisartan (MICARDIS), hydrochlorothiazide, placebo, or combination therapy with telmisart and hydrochlorothiazide for 8 weeks (Treatment Period).
This study includes nine cells, placebo, telmisartan (TEL) 40 mg, TEL 80 mg, hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 6.25 mg, HCTZ 12.5 mg, TEL 40 mg/HCTZ 6.25 mg, TEL 40 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg, TEL 80 mg/HCTZ 6.25 mg, and TEL 80 mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg.
The hypothesis is that the dose response model for the Japanese patient with essential hypertension which is constructed for the change of the supine diastolic blood pressure from the baseline value to end of treatment with the multiple regression analysis, is similar to that in the US study 502.204.
The primary efficacy parameter will be the change from baseline in supine diastolic blood pressure at trough (24 hours post-dose) at the last visit during the Double-Blind Period.
The dose response surface model will be constructed. The graphs of dose response surface will be generated based on the final model. The model in this study will compare with that in US study from the perspective of including the same terms in the model.

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.
