This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile, the effect of rennin inhibition and the relationship among pharmacokinetics, renin-angiotensin system (RAS) biomarkers, and blood pressure lowering effects of oral doses of SPP100 in Japanese patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension. Safety will also be evaluated.

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • pharmacokinetic profile of aliskiren administration after meal Day 1, Day 14, and Day 28

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • effect of aliskiren on the RAS profile
  • relationship among steady state pharmacokinetics, change in RAS biomarkers and blood pressure lowering effect of aliskiren
  • safety

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Japanese patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension aged 20 to 80 years
  • Blood pressure: Mean (based on 3 recordings at 1-2 minute intervals) sitting diastolic blood pressure values on 14 days or 3 days before the treatment should meet the following criteria:

    • 14 days before treatment: ≥ 90 mmHg and < 110 mmHg

  • Patients with or suspected of having secondary hypertension
  • Patients suspected of having malignant hypertension

Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply
