Brief Summary:
The rationale of the study is to clarify whether the supplementation of irbesartan with ciprofibrate could increase the antihypertensive effect, could improve the endothelial functions, and/or could affect the atherogenic small-dense LDL-, oxydized LDL concentrations, onto the paraoxinase activity and on the CRP and insulin levels.
