An 8 Week, Double-blind, Randomized, Parallel-group Study to Compare the Effect of Aliskiren 300mg + Valsartan 320mg vs. Telmisartan 80mg + Ramipril 10mg on Biomarkers of the Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone System in Moderate Hypertension

This study is designed as a mechanistic study to compare the effect of two different combinations of anti-hypertensive treatments (aliskiren and valsartan vs. telmisartan and ramipril) on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) in patients with moderate hypertension.
