Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of fixed combination of lercanidipine (10 mg or 20 mg) and valsartan (80 mg or 160 mg), lercanidipine and valsartan alone in reducing blood pressure. The study will investigate the dose response relationship for the combinations and monotherapies.
