Study to Evaluate Symptoms in Patients Treated With Nebivolol or Metoprolol Extended-Release (ER) for Hypertension
The purpose of this study is to compare the tolerability of nebivolol to metoprolol ER in a populatoin of patients with mild to moderate hypertension also receiving hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ)
This study is an 18-week study to evaluate the tolerability of nebivolol compared to metoprolol ER in outpatients with mild to moderate hypertension taking HCTZ. It is a multi-center, randomized, double blind (DB), active-control, parallel-group study, starting with a 4-week HCTZ run-in phase, followed by a 12-week DB treatment phase. Patients meeting the entry criteria at the end of run-in are randomized to one of two treatment groups, nebivolol or metoprolol ER. Uptitration of dose of study drug will occur if needed during the first 4 weeks of the DB phase, after which there is an 8-week stable-dose period of treatment. A 2-week double-blind withdrawal phase follows, during which tapering off study drug occurs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A selective adrenergic beta-1-blocking agent with no stimulatory action. It's binding to plasma albumin is weaker than alprenolol and it may be useful in angina pectoris, hypertension, or cardiac arrhythmias.
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.
This study will evaluate the effects of nebivolol on glycemic control compared with metoprolol and HCTZ in patients with hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of Nebivolol and Hydrochlorothiazide on blood pressure in African Americans with high blood pressure.
The purpose of the study is to compare the effects of nebivolol and metoprolol on 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure characteristics and basal metabolic rates in patients with hypertension.
This study will investigate the blood pressure lowering efficacy of nebivolol among renal transplant recipients who are on calcineurin inhibitors which are believed to contribute to hypert...
To examine changes in aortic impedance in patients on nebivolol vs. metoprolol succinate in Type 2 hypertensive diabetic patients as measured by the change from baseline in central systoli...
INTRODUCTION: Only 50% of hypertensive patients receive an appropriate treatment to normalize blood pressure (BP). Although monotherapy is often adequate in normalizing BP, it is sometimes necessary t...
Abstract Aim. To compare two strengths of a fixed drug combination (FDC) containing metoprolol XL and amlodipine (metoprolol/amlodipine 50/5; and metoprolol/amlodipine 25/2.5) with its components in...
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 occurrence of cerebral ischemia is prevalent in patients with hypertension and the combination drug therapy is needed. Thus, the pharmacokinetic interaction between metoprolol (anti-hypertension d...
Nitric oxide (NO) deficiency contributes to chronic kidney disease progression. Nebivolol, a beta adrenergic receptor antagonist, may enhance endogenous NO. Here, we investigated whether Nebivolol att...
