Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The change from baseline to week 12 in the average sitting DBP at trough.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline to week 2, 6, and 12 in the average sitting, supine, standing systolic and diastolic blood pressure and sitting HR.

Estimated Enrollment: 600
Study Start Date: October 2002
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2003
Detailed Description:

Following a washout of any previous beta-blocker medication, if applicable, supine, sitting, and standing cuff blood pressure and pulse rate, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), ECG, laboratory assessments and genomics testing were performed before randomization. Patients were randomized to receive placebo or nebivolol once daily in the morning together with their curently prescribed antihypertensive therapy. Patients had four scheduled clinical visits during the study, following the screening visit.
