Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) at Week 6/Final Visit [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks/Final Visit ]
    Value at 6 weeks minus value at baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline to Week 2 in SBP. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Value at 2 weeks minus value at baseline.

  • Change From Baseline in SBP at Week 4. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Value at 4 weeks minus value at baseline.

  • Change From Baseline in Diastolic Blood Pressure (DBP) at Week 2. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Value at 2 weeks minus value at baseline.

  • Change From Baseline in DBP at Week 4. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Value at 4 weeks minus value at baseline.

  • Change From Baseline in DBP at Week 6/Final Visit [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Value at 6 weeks/Final Visit minus value at baseline.

  • Change From Baseline in Parent's Assessment of Overall Well-being at Week 6/Final Visit. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    The parent/legal guardian evaluated the participant's overall well-being at Baseline and at Week 6 (or Final Visit) by placing one vertical line on the visual analog scale (VAS). The VAS ranged from 0 to 100, with 0 being 'very well' and 100 being 'very poor.

  • Number of Participants With >= 30% Improvement in the Parent's Global Assessment of Overall Well-being at Week 6/Final Visit. [ Time Frame: Week 6/Final Visit ]
    The parent/legal guardian evaluated the participant's overall well-being at Baseline and at Week 6 (or Final Visit) by placing one vertical line on the visual analog scale (VAS). The VAS ranged from 0 to 100, with 0 being 'very well' and 100 being 'very poor.

  • Change From Baseline in Participant's Assessment of Overall Well-being at Week 6/Final Visit. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Participants, ≥8 years of age at the baseline, evaluated their own overall well-being at Baseline and at Week 6 (or Final Visit) by placing one vertical line on the VAS. The VAS ranges from 0 to 100, with 0 being 'very well' and 100 being 'very poor'.

  • Number of Participants With >= 30% Improvement in the Participant's Global Assessment of Overall Well-being at Week 6/Final Visit. [ Time Frame: Week 6/Final Visit ]
    Participants, ≥8 years of age at the baseline, evaluated their own overall well-being at Baseline and at Week 6 (or Final Visit) by placing one vertical line on the VAS. The VAS ranges from 0 to 100, with 0 being 'very well' and 100 being 'very poor'.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Assessment of Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) for SBP and DBP at Week 6/Final Visit [ Time Frame: 6 weeks/Final Visit ]
    Ambulatory BP measurements were obtained from 24 participants(in addition to the BP measurements obtained by the cuff technique) participating in the exploratory 24-hour ABPM sub-study. BP was monitored by a 24 hour Ambulatory BP device provided by a central vendor.

  • Change From Baseline in Assessment of ABPM for Heart Rate at Week 6/Final Visit [ Time Frame: 6 weeks/Final Visit ]
    Ambulatory BP measurements were obtained from 24 participants (in addition to the BP measurements obtained by the cuff technique) participating in the exploratory 24-hour ABPM sub-study. A summary of ABPM 24-hour averages for heart rate is presented in this Outcome Measure.

  • Change From Baseline in Assessment of ABPM for SBP and DBP Pressure at Week 6/Final Visit (Sensitivity Analysis Excluding One Participant) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks/Final Visit ]
    A summary of ABPM 24-hour averages for SBP and DBP are presented in this Outcome Measure. One of the participant in the Naproxen ABPM Arm had clinically implausible high BP values at Baseline. Due to the low number of participants in each Arm (12 and 11) these values had a significant impact on the mean baseline values for the Naproxen Arm. As a result, an additional sensitivity analysis was conducted, excluding this participant (Participant ID 10031002).

  • Change From Baseline in Assessment of ABPM for Heart Rate at Week 6/Final Visit (Sensitivity Analysis Excluding One Participant) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks/Final Visit ]
