Detailed Description:
This study was a Phase II, 12-week multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled study of nebivolol over a range of doses in Black patients with mild to moderate hypertension. Treatment was administered once daily (qd) for 12 weeks. The study consisted of 2 phases: (1) screening/washout/single-blind placebo run-in and (2) randomization/treatment. Patients had 7 scheduled clinic visits during the study (6 clinic visits for patients not on current antihypertensive medication).
