Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To investigate the anti-inflammatory effect of Olmesartan (OM) higher dose compared to Olmesartan (OM) lower dose and amlodipine (AML) on the change in levels of the inflammatory marker hs-CRP [ Time Frame: 6 weeks for each treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the additional antihypertensive efficacy in blood pressure (BP) lowering, assessed by conventional BP measurement and 24-h ambulatory BP measurement (24-h ABPM) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks for each treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
