Effectiveness and Patient Self-assessed Compliance of Blood Pressure Treatment With Tarka® Fixed Combination in Patients With Essential Hypertension

2014-08-27 03:13:33 | BioPortfolio


The fixed combination of verapamil SR/trandolapril (Tarka®) - is an effective, well-tolerated therapy for the treatment of essential hypertension in those who require more than one agent to achieve optimal blood pressure (BP) control. The endpoints is compliance with Tarka® treatment by number/percentage of patients continued on fixed combination Tarka therapy after six months. This Post Marketing Observational Study (PMOS) will be conducted in a prospective, single-arm, single-country, multicenter format. The investigational sites will be the cardiologists, the doctors of internal medicine and general practicians . Since this will be a PMOS, Tarka® will be prescribed in usual manner in accordance with the terms of the local market authorization with regards to dose, population and indication as well as the local guidelines.


Follow-up of patients enables 4 patient visits during this period. For these reasons, the most likely visits are defined as "Inclusion visit" at which treatment with Tarka® is to be initiated, and then "Follow-up visit Week 4-6", "Follow-up visit Month 3 " and "Follow-up visit Month 6", although dates will depend only on the decision of the physician. For these reasons, the most likely visits are defined as "S/V", "F1", "F2", "F3". The end point is compliance with Tarka® treatment by number/percentage of patients continued on fixed combination Tarka therapy after six months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
