Evaluate the diastolic blood pressure lowering effect of combination of aliskiren 300 mg and HCTZ (12.5 mg and 25 mg) in hypertensive patients who do not show sufficient blood pressure response to aliskiren 300 mg.
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||An Eight-week Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of the Combination of Aliskiren / HCTZ (300/12.5 mg and 300/25 mg) in Comparison With Aliskiren 300 mg in Patients With Essential Hypertension Not Adequately Responsive to Aliskiren 300 mg Monotherapy
