Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time from baseline to the achievement of first treatment success (defined as achieving a blood pressure (BP) <130/80 mm Hg). The proportion and cumulative proportion of patients who achieved first treatment success were also determined.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. change from baseline in sitting diastolic BP at Week 24
  2. change from baseline in sitting systolic BP at Week 24
  3. change from baseline in urinary protein excretion at Week 24
  4. change from baseline in HbA1c at Week 24
  5. change from baseline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (EGFR) at Week 24
