Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lowering of systolic office blood pressure [ Time Frame: four weeks ]
  • Lowering of diastolic office blood pressure [ Time Frame: four weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Lowering of systolic and diastolic blood pressure (ABPM) [ Time Frame: four weeks ]

Study Start Date: October 2006
Study Completion Date: May 2007
Detailed Description:

Renin-Angiotensin system blockade is a well established target for treatment of high blood pressure. Blocking the system at the initial step, however, is a rather new concept that could only be implemented very recently through the availability of novel, oral, renin inhibitors. This study investigates the safety and efficacy of a novel oral renin inhibitor, SPP635.
