Lacidipine In Mild To Moderate Essential Hypertension Patients With Type 2 Diabetes In Korea

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
GlaxoSmithKline Identifier:
First received: May 22, 2006
Last updated: August 12, 2010
Last verified: August 2010
This study was designed to evaluate the anti-hypertensive efficacy of lacidipine in hypertensives with Type 2 diabetes and effectiveness on endothelial cell function in Korean population.

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Essential Hypertension Drug: Lacidipine Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open Label, Multi-centre, Single Arm Phase IV Study to Evaluate the Antihypertensive Effect of Lacidipine in Mild to Moderate Essential Hypertension Patients With Type 2 Diabetes in Korea

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To investigate the clinical effectiveness of lacidipine on elevated systolic blood pressure (SBP) in Korean patients aged 35 to 75 years. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks from baseline ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To investigate the clinical effectiveness of lacidipine on elevated diastolic blood pressure and endothelial function by flow-medicated vasodilation and measurement of markers of inflammation in Korean patients aged 35 to 75 years with type 2 diabetes. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks from baseline ]

Study Start Date: November 2004
Study Completion Date: May 2006
Primary Completion Date: May 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
All subjects who meet eligiblity criteria receive 2mg for the first 4 weeks in an open manner. If target systolic blood pressure is not ahcieved, subject can increase the dose to 4mg and then 6mg consequently.
Drug: Lacidipine
Lacidipine 2, 4, 6mg


Ages Eligible for Study:   35 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  • Newly diagnosed as essential hypertension or not treated in the past 2 weeks(If the subject took medication in the past 2 weeks, a wash-out period of at least 2 weeks will be completed prior to performing screening (week -2) assessments)
  • Mean seated SBP at screen visit = 130mmHg (as measured by a mercury sphygmomanometer)
  • Type 2 diabetes (American Diabetes Association criteria 2004) and HbA1C <11%
  • Agree to practice acceptable contraceptive measures during the study, and for 30 days after the last dose of study medication is taken if the subject a female of child-bearing potential
  • Provide written informed consent

Exclusion criteria:

  • Mean seated SBP of > 180 mmHg
  • Known or suspected secondary hypertension
  • Anemia defined by haemoglobin concentration < 10.0 g/dL
  • Hemoglobinopathy or peripheral vascular disease
  • Clinically significant renal or hepatic disease (i.e., subjects with serum creatinine = 2.0 mg/dL; Alanine aminotransferase, Aspartate aminotransferase, total bilirubin, or alkaline phosphatase > 2.5 times the upper limit of the normal reference range)
  • Unstable or severe angina, coronary insufficiency, or any congestive heart failure requiring pharmacologic treatment
  • Chronic disease requiring intermittent or chronic treatment with oral, intravenous, or intra-articular corticosteroids (i.e. only use of topical, inhaled or nasal corticosteroids is permissible)
  • Female who is lactating, pregnant, or planning to become pregnant
  • clinically significant abnormality identified at screening which in the judgement of the investigator makes the subject unsuitable for inclusion in the study (e.g. physical examination, laboratory tests, or electrocardiogram etc.)
  • Acute or chronic metabolic acidosis or a history of diabetic ketoacidosis
