Landmark ONTARGET(TM) Trial Demonstrates Micardis(R) is Equally Effective as Ramipril, with Fewer Discontinuations, in a Broad High-Risk Cardiovascular Population
Date:3/31/2008

>

ONTARGET also studied the value of combining telmisartan with ramipril, to evaluate whether combining an ACE inhibitor and an ARB, i.e. the dual renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blockade, could offer even better risk reduction compared to single blockade, a key question for the clinical community. The results announced today indicate that there was no additional risk reduction benefit achieved and a higher discontinuation rate if telmisartan and ramipril are combined.(1)

About the ONTARGET(TM) Trial Program

The ONTARGET Trial Program is the largest clinical trial ever undertaken with an ARB, involving more than 31,000 high-risk cardiovascular patients with either normal or controlled blood pressure. The ONTARGET Trial Program encompasses two randomized, double-blind, multi-center international outcome trials: ONTARGET, the main trial with results reported today, and TRANSCEND(TM) (Telmisartan Randomized Assessment Study in ACE-intolerant subjects with cardiovascular disease), the parallel trial with results planned to be reported later in 2008.

ONTARGET evaluated more than 25,600 high-risk cardiovascular patients with normal blood pressure or controlled high blood pressure and a history of a broad range of cardiovascular diseases. The study compared the effectiveness of the ARB telmisartan to the ACE inhibitor ramipril in reducing the combined risk of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke and hospitalization for congestive heart failure (CHF) in patients at risk. The study also compared the efficacy of the combination of the ARB telmisartan and the ACE inhibitor ramipril compared to ramipril alone in achieving the same combined endpoint.

The combined primary endpoint in the ONTARGET trial included cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction, non-fatal stroke and hospitalization for congestive heart failure. In addition, a broad variety of secondary and tertiary endpoints were studied, including: newly diagnosed d
