Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in MSSBP [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in MSSBP [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 2 and 8 ]
  • Change from baseline MSDBP [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 2, 6, and 8 ]
  • Blood pressure responder rate [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 2, 6, 8 ]
    Rate of patients who achieved target blood pressure (MSSBP < 140 mmHg or MSDBP < 90 mmHg), or MSSBP decrease > 20 mmHg from baseline or MSDBP decrease > 10 mmHg from baseline.
