The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of rosiglitazone in normotensive type 2 diabetic patients with regard to its blood-pressure–reducing effects.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Drug: rosiglitazone(drug), blood pressure lowering effect Phase 4

Detailed Description:
The first study to evaluate the effects of troglitazone on blood pressure in humans was published recently, which demonstrated a 5/4 mm Hg reduction in ambulatory blood pressure in 18 nondiabetic obese subjects after 12 weeks’ treatment. Another study in 18 hypertensive subjects with diabetes mellitus showed an 18/12 mm Hg decline in office blood pressure after 8 weeks of treatment.
