New Data Shows AZOR(R) (amlodipine and olmesartan medoxomil) Significantly Improves 24-Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure
Date:5/8/2009

and 43 patients were diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes (populations are not mutually exclusive). The primary endpoint was change in mean systolic blood pressure (SBP) from baseline after 12 weeks of treatment as measured by 24-hour ABPM. Secondary endpoints included change from baseline in mean 24-hour DBP as measured by ABPM; change from baseline in mean daytime, nighttime, and last 2, 4, and 6 hours ambulatory SBP and DBP; achievement of ABPM prespecified BP targets; change from baseline mean SeSBP and SeDBP at each titration step; and achievement of BP goals.

Following placebo run-in, patients were started on amlodipine (AML) 5 mg, and were up-titrated at three week intervals if mean cuff BP was greater than or equal to 120/80 mm Hg to AML/olmesartan medoxomil (OM) 5/20 mg, AML/OM 5/40 mg then AML/OM 10/40 mg. If BP was <120/80 mm Hg, patients were not up-titrated to the next dose level and remained at the assigned dose (maintenance dose). Patients on maintenance doses were up-titrated if BP subsequently became uncontrolled (SBP greater than or equal to 140 mm Hg and/or DBP greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg). Twenty-four hour ABPM was performed at baseline and end of study (Week 12). One hundred seventy two patients had ABPM values for baseline and end of study. A total of 134 patients (72.4%) were titrated to AML/OM 10/40 mg.

About AZOR(R)

AZOR is a convenient, once daily, single tablet combination of amlodipine, the most prescribed CCB on the market(12), which inhibits the entrance of calcium into the blood vessel walls, with olmesartan medoxomil, the active ingredient in Benicar(R), which blocks angiotensin II receptors. Angiotensin II is a hormone that causes blood vessels to tighten and narrow. Together the two medicines relax the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil), Daiichi Sankyo's flagship ARB product, is the fastest growing medication in the fastest growi
