To demonstrate the efficacy and safety of aliskiren given to patients with essential hypertension, at doses of 75 mg, 150 mg and 300 mg alone, and in combination with hydrochlorothiazide (...
This study will evaluate the long-term gastrointestinal (GI) safety and efficacy of aliskiren (300 mg) compared to ramipril (10mg) in patients ≥ 50 years with essential hypertension.
Assessing efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics in patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension
This study is designed to investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of aliskiren 300 mg, 150 mg and 75 mg when compared to ramipril 5 mg in patients with essential hypertension.
This study will test the safety of the combination of aliskiren/amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide in patients with essential hypertension

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.
The active metabolite of ENALAPRIL and a potent intravenously administered angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. It is an effective agent for the treatment of essential hypertension and has beneficial hemodynamic effects in heart failure. The drug produces renal vasodilation with an increase in sodium excretion.
A selective serotonin receptor antagonist with weak adrenergic receptor blocking properties. The drug is effective in lowering blood pressure in essential hypertension. It also inhibits platelet aggregation. It is well tolerated and is particularly effective in older patients.
Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
Drugs considered essential to meet the health needs of a population as well as to control drug costs. (World Health Organization Action Programme on Essential Drugs, 1994, p3)
