Further study details as provided by NicOx:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the 24-hour arterial blood pressure profile of different doses of naproxcinod, as measured by ABPM after each treatment period, compared to different doses of naproxen after three 3-week forced titration. [ Time Frame: 11 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the general safety and tolerability as well as the PK/PD profile of different doses of naproxcinod compared to different doses of naproxen. [ Time Frame: 11 weeks ]

Estimated Enrollment: 120
Study Start Date: March 2008

Detailed Description:
This is a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, multicenter study comparing the effect of naproxcinod and naproxen on 24 hour arterial blood pressure profile. Patients will be randomly allocated to different naproxcinod or naproxen doses in a 1:1 ratio.
