Study Finds Long-Term Treatment with TRIBENZOR™ was Effective and Well-Tolerated Regardless of Age, Race, or Diabetes Status
Date:5/23/2011

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Data evaluating the long-term efficacy and safety of olmesartan medoxomil, amlodipine besylate, plus hydrochlorothiazide (OM/AML + HCTZ) in patients with hypertension aged <65 years and greater than or equal to 65 years, showed that the triple therapy at Week 52 was both well-tolerated and effective in maintaining the blood pressure reductions seen in the pivotal study regardless of age.(1)

The pre-specified subgroup analysis results, presented for the first time at the American Society of Hypertension, Inc. (ASH) Twenty-Sixth Annual Scientific Meeting and Exposition (ASH 2011) in New York, found that a similar percentage of patients treated with the triple therapy achieved BP goal in both age groups. The triple therapy was well-tolerated in both age groups and most adverse events (AE) were mild or moderate in severity.(1)

"Older patients generally have a more difficult time achieving recommended blood pressure levels and as a result, their hypertension often remains uncontrolled," said Suzanne Oparil, MD, Professor of Medicine and Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. "However this analysis shows that long-term blood pressure control can be achieved safely and effectively across all studied dosing strengths with a triple combination therapy regardless of age. This is important given the fact that more than 64 percent of men and 75 percent of women 70 years or older have high blood pressure."(5)

The long-term open-label extension of the TRINITY study (Triple Therapy with Olmesartan Medoxomil, Amlodipine, and Hydrochlorothiazide in Hypertensive Patients Study) evaluated the safety and efficacy of olmesartan medoxomil (OM)/amlodipine (AML) + hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in 2,098 patients with hypertension.(1) After completing a 12-week double-blind period, eligible patients were enrolled
