Bisoprolol in Hypertension: Effect on Concomitant Elevated Heart Rate

2014-08-27 03:14:13 | BioPortfolio


The b.p.m study will be performed to gain the insight in the courses of illness and therapy in subjects, suffering from hypertension and that have elevated heart rate. This study will show that a therapy with bisoprolol (Concor/Concor PLUS) or any other blood pressure lowering (antihypertensive) drug lowers blood pressure (BP) and heart rate and increases the quality of subjects' life.


The b.p.m study measures heart rate development whilst treating subjects with hypertension with Concor [bisoprolol] or Concor Plus [bisoprolol + hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ)].

The objectives of this study are:

After 6 months of the therapy treatment, 60% of the subjects showed a heart rate ≥ 80 beats/min.

An improved quality of life information after 6 months of therapy treatment, collected by asking standardised questions A decrease in systolic and diastolic BP after 6 months presented significant differences Digital sphygmomanometers (BP measuring devices) will be supplied in order to document the values of BP and heart rate. Blood pressure and heart rate should be measured at least 2 times, ideally 4 times per day. Furthermore, every subject will additionally receive a documentation sheet, where he/she will record the measurement data. The documentation sheet will be a part of the improvement of the quality of life; it can be removed and passed on.

Every subject will be explained how to use and handle the BP measuring device and the importance of the documentation. The assessment of the quality of life must be made at the beginning and at the end of 6 month therapy. Within the framework of the examination the attending physician will ask 8 standard questions (SQ-8 Short Form Health Survey). The questionnaire will be a part of the quality of life assessment.

The main focus of the observation is on the age group < 55 years with concomitant diseases, such as diabetes or ketohexokinase (KHK).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cardioselective beta-1-adrenergic blocker. It is effective in the management of hypertension and angina pectoris.

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.

Hypertension that occurs without known cause, or preexisting renal disease. Associated polymorphisms for a number of genes have been identified, including AGT, GNB3, and ECE1. OMIM: 145500

Increased pressure within the cranial vault. This may result from several conditions, including HYDROCEPHALUS; BRAIN EDEMA; intracranial masses; severe systemic HYPERTENSION; PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI; and other disorders.
