Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in mean sitting systolic blood pressure (MSSBP) as measured by office blood pressure (OBP) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in mean sitting diastolic blood pressure (MSDBP) at 8 weeks as measured by OBP [ Time Frame: 8 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of patients achieving a successful BP response and BP control (MSSBP and MSDBP), as measured by OBP [ Time Frame: 8 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Dose/exposure BP response relationship of LCI699, as measured by OBP [ Time Frame: 8 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes from baseline in mean 24 hours, mean daytime and mean nighttime SBP and DBP, as measured by ABPM [ Time Frame: 8 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate safety and tolerability of LCI699 [ Time Frame: 8 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
