Hypertension | Clinical Study to Evaluate the Antihypertensive Efficacy and Changes of Neurohormonal Markers of Fimasartan and Atenolol With Exaggerated Blood Pressure Response During Exercise in Essential Hypertensive Patients

Hypertension research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antihypertensive efficacy and changes of neurohormonal markers of fimasartan and atenolol with exaggerated blood pressure response during exercise in essential hypertensive patients.

Study Interventions

Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.

Drug:FimasartanFimasartan 60mg

Drug:AtenololAtenolol 50mg

Study Arms

Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.

Fimasartan 60mg60mg/day of Fimasartan will be oral administered for the study period (8 weeks)

Atenolol 50mg50mg/day of Atenolol will be oral administered for the study period (8 weeks)
