  Purpose

This is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, 6 x 3 cross-over study. All patients who meet the entry criteria will be required to stop taking any other anti-hypertensive agents than Adalat CR (controlled release), if taken, before starting 4 weeks (±7days) open-label Adalat CR 40 mg once daily (OD) treatment phase (baseline treatment period). Of them, those who are confirmed with their eligibility as subjects for the present study at the end of the baseline treatment period will be randomly allocated to one of the 6 treatment sequences on the basis of a computer-generated randomization list. Subsequently, BAY A1040 CR tablet 40 mg OD, 40 mg twice daily (BID) or 80 mg OD will be administered to a total of 6 weeks, 2 weeks per each treatment period (Period 1-3) under double-blind conditions using BAY A1040 CR tablet 40 mg and its placebo as follows (Double-blind treatment period).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change of Sitting Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 2 weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Changes of sitting SBP and DBP (trough values) from baseline (ie [trough BP at the end of each period during the double-blind treatment period] minus [trough BP at the end of the baseline treatment period])


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Differences of Systolic Blood Pressure Profile [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 2 weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Differences in blood pressure at the same time points (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 24-hour post-dose) between 2 different days (ie, end of baseline treatment period and end of 2-week treatment period)

  • Differences of Diastolic Blood Pressure Profile [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 2 weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Differences in blood pressure at the same time points (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 24-hour post-dose) between 2 different days (ie, end of baseline treatment period and end of 2-week treatment period)

  • Target Blood Pressure Achievement in Elderly (≥65) [ Time Frame: After 2 weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Elderly subjects (≥65 years) without diabetes mellitus or chronic renal disorders and target BP SBP <140 mm Hg and DBP <90 mm Hg

  • Target Blood Pressure Achievement in Non-elderly (<65) [ Time Frame: After 2 weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Non-elderly subjects (<65 years) without diabetes mellitus or chronic renal disorder and target BP SBP <130 mm Hg and DBP <85 mm Hg

  • Target Blood Pressure Achievement in Subjects With Diabetes Mellitus or Chronic Renal Disorder [ Time Frame: After 2 weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects with diabetes mellitus or chronic renal disorders and target BP SBP <130 mm Hg and DBP <80 mm Hg

  • Target Blood Pressure Achievement in All Subjects [ Time Frame: After 2 weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects (≥65 years) without diabetes mellitus or chronic renal disorders and target BP SBP <140 mm Hg and DBP <90 mm Hg. Subjects (<65 years) without diabetes mellitus or chronic renal disorder and target BP SBP <130 mm Hg and DBP <85 mm Hg. Subjects with diabetes mellitus or chronic renal disorders and target BP SBP <130 mm Hg and DBP <80 mm Hg.
