Kagoshima Collaborate Trial in Metabolic Syndrome (KACT Study)
Effects of Valsartan on Metabolic Syndrome in Patients With Hypertension

The purpose of this study is to consider the following points in patients with hypertension who complicated by metabolic syndrome for Valsartan basis treatment and an existing, standard treatment.

  • Blood pressure control

  • LVMI
  • E/A ratio
  • Tei-index
  • Apo-J
