Study Description
Brief Summary:
To determine the effective dose of candesartan cilexetil for reduction of urinary protein excretion in hypertensive patients with non-diabetic chronic kidney disease with baseline urinary protein/creatinine ratio between 500mg/g and 5000mg/g, by assessing the change in urinary protein/creatinine ratio from baseline to the end of 28-week treatment

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Change in Urinary Protein/Creatinine Ratio From Baseline to 28 Weeks [ Time Frame: baseline to 28 weeks ]
    Decrease of urinary protein/creatinine ratio means improvement of renal disease.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure From Baseline [ Time Frame: baseline to 28 weeks ]
  2. Inflammatory Marker (Hs-C-peptide Reactive Protein) [ Time Frame: baseline to 28 weeks ]
    To evaluate how to reduce and relate with cardiovascular risk

  3. Estimated GFR Predicted From the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) Equation [ Time Frame: 28 weeks ]
    GFR (mL/min/1.73 m2) = 186 x (Scr)-1.154 x (Age)-0.203 x (0.742 if female) x (1.210 if African-American) (conventional units)

  4. Treatment-emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline to 28 weeks ]
    Prevalence of adverse events after treatment regardless causality. An adverse event is the development of an undesirable medical condition or the deterioration of a pre-existing medical condition from the signing of the informed consent, whether or not considered causally related to the product.
