Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline to Week 12 in Seated Diastolic Blood Pressure (SeDBP). [ Time Frame: baseline to 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Demonstrable hypertension defined as mean sitting trough cuff blood pressure ≥ 140/100 mmHg (SeSBP ≥ 140 mmHg and SeDBP ≥ 100mmHg) or mean sitting trough cuff BP ≥ 160/90 mmHg (SeSBP ≥ 160 mmHg and SeDBP ≥ 90mmHg).
  • Male or female newly diagnosed hypertensive subjects or currently on hypertension medication.

    • Negative urine pregnancy test at screening
    • Not lactating
    • Do not plan to become pregnant during the study
    • Will practice birth control throughout the study by the following: oral or patch contraceptive, injectable or implantable contraceptive medication, intrauterine device, diaphragm or female condom plus spermicide

      • Non childbearing potential must be classified by one of the following criteria
      • Had a hysterectomy or tubal ligation at least 6 months prior to consent
      • Has been postmenopausal for a least 1 year

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Mean sitting trough cuff DBP <90 mmHg or mean sitting trough cuff SBP <140 mmHg (off antihypertensive medication).
  • Subjects with uncontrolled hypertension taking multiple antihypertensive therapies (at the discretion of the investigator).
  • Signs or symptoms which could exacerbate the occurrence of hypotension such as volume and salt depletion.
  • History of hypertensive encephalopathy, stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA).
  • Participation in another clinical trial involving an investigational drug within one month prior to screening.
  • History of myocardial infarction, percutaneous transluminal coronary revascularization, coronary artery bypass graft, and/or unstable angina within the past 6 months.
  • Any history of New York Heart Association Class III or IV congestive heart failure (CHF). A history of New York Heart Association Class I or II CHF may be exclusionary at the discretion of the investigator.
  • History of secondary hypertension including renal disease, pheochromocytoma, or Cushing's syndrome.
  • Uncorrected coarctation of the aorta, bilateral renal artery stenosis, or unilateral renal artery stenosis in a solitary kidney.
  • Evidence of symptomatic resting bradycardia.
  • Evidence of hemodynamically significant cardiac valvular disease.
  • Presence of heart block greater than first degree atrioventricular block, chronic atrial fibrillation or flutter.
  • Uncontrolled Type I or Type II diabetes defined as HbA1c >9.0%. Diabetics must have documentation of HbA1c within 6 months of the Screening Visit. Undocumented subjects must have their HbA1c assessed prior to randomization. Note: Subjects with Type I or Type II diabetes controlled with insulin, diet or oral hypoglycemic agents on a stable dose for at least 30 days may be included.
  • Evidence of liver disease as indicated by ALT and AST and/or total bilirubin >3 times the upper limit of normal.
  • Severe renal insufficiency defined as a creatinine clearance (based on the Cockcroft-Gault formula) of <30 mL/min.
  • Clinically significant laboratory elevations at Visit 1 that compromise subject safety, based on the investigator's judgment. Consideration should take into account the potential laboratory effects of the component blinded therapies.
  • Positive for any one of the following tests: hepatitis B surface antigen, hepatitis C antibody (confirmed by radio immunobinding assay, RIBA) or HIV antibody (confirmed by western blot assay).
  • Subjects with malignancy during the past 2 years excluding squamous cell or basal cell carcinoma of the skin.
  • Known allergy to any of the medications used in the study.
  • Subjects who require or are taking any concomitant medication, which may interfere with the objectives of the study (Refer to Section 5.2 for a listing of excluded medications).
  • Pregnant or lactating females.
  • Current history of drug or alcohol abuse.
  • A subject with any medical condition, which in the judgment of the Investigator would jeopardize the evaluation of efficacy or safety and/or constitute a significant safety risk to the subject.
