TRANSCEND(TM) Trial Results Presented at European Society of Cardiology Congress and Published in The Lancet
Date:8/31/2008

Landmark ARB trial investigated Micardis(R) (telmisartan) against placebo in reducing the composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke and hospitalization for congestive heart failure in ACE inhibitor intolerant high-risk patients receiving current standard of care

RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The primary results of the TRANSCEND(TM)* trial demonstrated that treatment with MICARDIS(R) (telmisartan) 80mg in patients receiving current standard of care resulted in an 8% reduction in the composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke and hospitalization for congestive heart failure. This reduction was not statistically significant (p=0.216; HR 0.92) compared to patients receiving placebo in addition to current standard of care.(1) Results of the main secondary endpoint of TRANSCEND as pre-specified in the statistical plan demonstrated that telmisartan significantly reduced the risk of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction and stroke in high-risk cardiovascular patients by 13% compared with those patients already receiving current standard of care (p=0.048).(1) This risk reduction was achieved despite a high proportion of patients receiving proven therapies such as statins, anti-platelet agents or beta blockers. The main secondary endpoint of TRANSCEND mirrors the primary endpoint of the landmark HOPE trial.(2) A post-hoc analysis to adjust for multiplicity and overlap with primary endpoint showed a p-value of 0.068.(1) The results were presented today at the annual meeting of the European Society of Cardiology in Munich, Germany and published online in The Lancet.

In high-risk patients who cannot tolerate an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, the TRANSCEND trial was designed to investigate potential cardiovascular risk reduction benefits using the second-generation angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) telmisartan. Telmisartan was compared to placebo on top of
