Hide Arm/Group Description Within each of the 5 rising dose treatment periods, 6 participants received a single dose of MK-8892 0.5 mg, 2.0 mg, 6.0 mg, or 14 mg, and 2 participants received placebo. Dosing periods alternated with Panel B. Within each of the 4 rising dose treatment periods, 6 participants received a single dose of MK-8892 1.0 mg, 4.0 mg, 9.0 mg or 12 mg, and 2 participants received placebo. Dosing periods alternated with Panel A.

1.Primary Outcome
Title Percentage of Participants Who Report 1 or More Adverse Events (AEs)- Healthy Participants
Hide Description An AE was defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with the treatment. An AE was any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with use of a medicinal product, regardless of whether or not it was considered related to the medicinal product. The percentage of participants that reported at least 1 AE was summarized. Adverse events were summarized by dose taken at the time of the event.
Time Frame up to 7 weeks
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
All healthy participants (Panels A and B) who received at least 1 dose of the study drug. As pre-specified in the protocol, safety data were pooled for the MK 8892 2.0 mg fed and fasted arms only and were not planned to be provided separately.

3.Primary Outcome
Title Change in 24-hour Time-weighted Average (TWA0-24hr) for Central Diastolic Blood Pressure (cDBP)- Healthy Participants
Hide Description Central diastolic blood pressure measurements were obtained at predose and at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16 and 24 hours postdose via applanation tonometry of the radial artery. The average central diastolic blood pressure over the 24-hour monitoring period was calculated for each dose of each panel by adjusting each time-point by the baseline, aggregating the area under the curve (AUC) by the trapezoidal method and then dividing the AUC by 24 hours. A negative number indicates a decrease.

Title Change in TWA0-24hrs for Heart Rate (HR) - Healthy Participants
Hide Description Heart rate was measured predose and every 30 minutes from 0.5-4 hours postdose; hourly from 4-12 hours postdose; every 2 hours from 12-16 hours postdose; and at 24 postdose by a validated automatic measuring device. The time-weighted average change from baseline was calculated by adjusting each time-point by the baseline, aggregating the area under the curve (AUC) by the trapezoidal method and then dividing the AUC by 24 hours. A negative number indicates a decrease.
Time Frame Predose (baseline) and every 30 minutes from 0.5-4 hours postdose; hourly from 4-12 hours postdose; every 2 hours from 12-16 hours postdose; and at 24 postdose (for each Dosing Period of Each Panel)

Title Area Under the Concentration Time-curve From Hour 0 to Infinity (AUC0-inf) of 2.0 mg MK-8892 - Healthy Participants-Fasted/Fed
Hide Description Blood samples taken at Predose and 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48, 72, and 96 hours postdose of each dosing period to determine the AUC0-inf. A mixed effects model with Cohort (Healthy or hypertensive) as a fixed term, participant as a random effect was used for summary data. For participants that participated in Period 5, study drug was administered after a standard high-fat breakfast provided approximately 30 minutes prior to dosing. The meal was consumed in a 20-minute period with start and stop times being recorded. Participants were administered a single dose of MK-8892 or matching placebo Within 10 minutes of completing the meal.
