  Purpose
This study will qualify a functional model that can measure central blood pressure and vascular compliance effects through noninvasive means.

Condition Intervention Phase
Hypertension Drug: losartan potassium Drug: Comparator: isosorbide mononitrate (ISMN) Drug: Comparator: losartan + ISMN Drug: Comparator: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, 5-Period Crossover Study to Evaluate the Effects of a Single Dose of Losartan, a Single Dose of Isosorbide Mononitrate (ISMN), and Single Doses of Losartan + ISMN on Central Blood Pressure Measurements in Mildly Hypertensive Patients

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Augmentation Index Percent Change From Baseline After Single Doses of Losartan 100 mg Plus ISMN 60 mg Versus Single Dose of Losartan 100 mg [ Time Frame: Baseline and 10 hours postdose ]
    The augmentation index (AIx) is defined as the ratio of augmentation (Δ P) to central pulse pressure and expressed as percent. AIx = (ΔP/PP) x 100, where P = pressure and PP = Pulse Pressure. A mathematical transfer function translated the peripheral wave form into a central waveform using an FDA approved process based on directly recorded arterial pressure values. The mean AIx for each subject was estimated as a time-weighted average over the 10-hour post dose observation period and expressed as a change from baseline.
