Antiproteinuric Effect of Valsartan and Lisinopril
Title: Antiproteinuric effect of valsartan, lisinopril and valsartan versus lisinopril in non-diabetic and diabetic renal disease: a randomized (3:3:1), double blind, parallel group, controlled trial, 5 months follow-up.
Objective: To evaluate the antiproteinuric effect of high doses of valsartan vs combo treatment in no-diabetic and diabetic patients.
Hypothesis: Combo treatment reduces microalbuminuria, proteinuria and the albumin/creatinin ratio more than monotherapies.
Design: Multicentric, randomized, double blind, parallel group, active controlled.
Dose / regimen Valsartan 320 vs Lisinopril 40 vs Valsartan/lisinopril 160/20
Drug: Valsartan plus HCTZ
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (masked roles unspecified)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
