  Purpose

The CoCa study with at maximum daily dose of 32 mg candesartan or 16/12.5 mg candesartan/hydrochlorothiazide has the objective to evaluate under naturalistic conditions, i.e. under routine medical care conditions, the subject compliance as well as the efficacy and tolerability of candesartan or candesartan/HCT in subjects suffering from essential hypertension.

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To estimate under naturalistic conditions the compliance rate, defined as the number of subjects with regular intake of the prescribed dose of candesartan or candesartan/HCT as judged by the physician at the end of the observational period. [ Time Frame: app. 3 monthly ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess under naturalistic conditions the subject's reason(s) for being compliant or non-compliant with the intake of the pre-scribed dose of candesartan or candesartan/HCT [ Time Frame: app. 3 monthly ]
  • To assess under naturalistic conditions the subject's reason(s) for withdrawal of the pre-scribed dose of candesartan or candesartan/HCT [ Time Frame: app. 3 monthly ]
  • To assess under naturalistic conditions whether physicians are using procedures to improve the subject's compliance regarding the intake of candesartan or candesartan/HCT and to get insight in the type and effects of these procedures [ Time Frame: app. 3 monthly ]
