An Observational Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Lodoz in a Population of Hypertensive Patients

2014-08-27 03:15:28 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is an observational, prospective, non-interventional, non-randomised, open label multicentric study planned to be conducted in 1000 subjects with mild to moderate primary hypertension in approximately 20 centres in Thailand. The purpose of this study is to examine the beneficial effects of combination of bisoprolol with hydrochlorothiazide available as Lodoz in treatment of Thai subjects with mild to moderate hypertension. The outcome of the study would also provide information on the optimal daily dosage schedule as well as adherence of Lodoz.

Description

Essential hypertension is a heterogenous multifactorial disease affecting large number of population. Monotherapy treatment in hypertension is often unable to achieve the desired blood pressure (BP) goals and subjects even remain at significant risk for developing cardiovascular disease. The use of combination therapy as first line treatment for hypertension provides a solution to the management problems related to hypertension. Among combination drugs, low dose combinations are useful tools in treating large segments of hypertensive subjects because of their several advantages, such as simplified dosage regimens, improve compliance and hypertensive control, decrease dose dependent side effects as well as reduce costs.

OBJECTIVES

Primary objective:

- To evaluate the efficacy of Lodoz therapy when used in routine clinical practice in subjects with mild to moderate essential hypertension.

Secondary objective:

- To evaluate the discontinuation rate of Lodoz therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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 pharmaceutical preparation of amlodipine and valsartan that is used for the treatment of HYPERTENSION.

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 pharmaceutical preparation of amlodipine besylate and olmesartan medoxomil that combines ANGIOTENSIN II TYPE I RECEPTOR ANTAGONIST and CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER activities. It is used in the management of HYPERTENSION.
