  Purpose

We will conduct an open label, non-comparative, observational study to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of Olmesartan therapy in Taiwan patients with essential hypertension, and the primary objective is the change in the 24-hour mean systolic blood pressure from baseline to the day after post-treatment week-12 visit according to the ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.

Detailed Description:

Vitamin D plays an important role for cardiac function and blood pressure regulation, and the serum 25(OH)D concentration change is an important indicator for Vitamin D nutritional status, and serum 1,25(OH)2D is an active hormone for biological actions. However, little is known about the change of vitamin D concentration was related to the usage of angiotensin receptor blocker among patients with hypertension.

We will conduct an open label, non-comparative, observational study to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of Olmesartan therapy in Taiwan patients with essential hypertension, and the primary objective is the change in the 24-hour mean systolic blood pressure from baseline to the day after post-treatment week-12 visit according to the ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Our second endpoints included:

  1. Change in the 24-hour mean diastolic blood pressure from baseline to the day after post-treatment week-12 visit
  2. To evaluate the reduction in office blood pressure, including SeSBP and SeDPB, with Olmesartan 20mg therapy at 4,8,12 weeks (only for subjects with week-4, week-8 visit)
  3. Control rate [% of patients] at 12weeks, defined by Defined as SBP less than 140mmHg and / or DBP less than 90mmHg or a reduction more than 10 mmHg for DBP and / or more than 20mmHg SBP versus baseline values
  4. Biomarker assessment Vitamin D change from the baseline 24-hour urinary sodium excretion change from the baseline
  5. To evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of Olmesartan 20mg at 12 weeks based on global assessment by the physicians and patients

The major aim of this proposal is to investigate the effect of angiotensin receptor blocker, Olmesartan, for a 12 weeks' treatment among patients with hypertension in the outpatient clinics in one hospital center. We set the blood pressure measured from ambulatory blood pressure monitor as the primary endpoint. Furthermore, we will test Vitamin D related concentrations and 24 hour urine sodium excretion change with the blood pressure change. We will recruit 200 patients with hypertension in this observational study and will evaluate the efficacy and safety issues among these patients. The specific aims of this proposal will include:

  1. Test the improvement of blood pressure change in 24-hour blood pressure monitor by an angiotensin receptor blocker, Olmesartan, among hypertensive patients
  2. Test the change of vitamin D concentrations and 24-hour urinary sodium excretion change after this angiotensin receptor blocker, Olmesartan, treatment
  3. Test the association between blood pressure change and vitamin D-related measurements among the drug treatment, We hypothesize that the blood pressure change was related to the change of serum vitamin D concentration and also related to urinary sodium excretion change. .

The unique feature of this proposal includes a well-designed observational study with experienced clinicians and epidemiologists to conduct the study. Under the infrastructure in a tertiary hospital center, participant compliance, follow up, quality control and outcomes measurements can be assured and monitored under the guideline of good clinical practice. Furthermore, the investigators are the experts in vitamin D associated measurements and biomarkers studies and in clinical setting. This proposal will provide important scientific knowledge about the relationship among blood pressure change, vitamin D and urinary sodium excretion among hypertensive patients under 12 weeks' angiotensin receptor blocker treatment in Taiwan.
