[A randomized, double-blind, double-dummy study comparing a fixed dose combination of telmisartan 80 mg plus hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg to telmisartan 80 mg in Chinese hypertensive patients who failed to respond adequately to telmisartan 80 mg]. [Article in Chinese] [2008]
CONCLUSION: TH was more effective than T in patients not responded adequately to

Effects of the angiotensin II receptor blockers telmisartan versus valsartan in combination with hydrochlorothiazide: a large, confirmatory trial. [2008]
In 2004-2005, the antihypertensive effects of telmisartan 80 mg versus valsartan 160 mg combined with hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg were assessed in a large placebo-controlled trial in patients with stages 1 and 2 hypertension and demonstrated that both agents were highly effective in lowering blood pressure (BP) compared with placebo and that telmisartan lowered BP significantly greater than valsartan...

Design, statistical analysis and sample size calculation of dose response study of telmisartan and hydrochlorothiazide. [2007]
Many patients with hypertension take some antihypertensive drugs with complementary mechanisms of action to lower their blood pressure and achieve the therapeutic goals reducing the risk of cardiovascular events. Telmisartan, angiotensin II receptor blocker, and hydrochlorothiazide, diuretic are two antihypertensive drugs that have a well-recognized clinical efficacy...

Effects of the angiotensin II receptor blockers telmisartan vs valsartan in combination with hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg once daily for the treatment of hypertension. [2006]
To attain recent goals of blood pressure (BP) control, multiple drug therapy combinations are required, including higher doses of thiazide diuretics in combination with other classes of antihypertensive drug therapy. Thus, the authors evaluated the antihypertensive effects of telmisartan vs valsartan when combined with hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 25 mg in a large (N=1066), placebo-controlled trial in patients with stage 1 or 2 hypertension.

Freehand three-dimensional echocardiographic evaluation of the effect of telmisartan compared with hydrochlorothiazide on left ventricular mass in hypertensive patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension: a multicentre study. [2004]
Antihypertensive efficacy, effects on left ventricular mass index (LVMI) and tolerability of telmisartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker, were compared with those of hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ). Adult patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension and an optimal acoustic window by two-dimensional echocardiography were randomised at baseline to 12 months' double-blind, once-daily treatment with telmisartan 80 mg or HCTZ 25 mg.

Clinical Trials Related to Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide (Telmisartan / Hydrochlorothiazide)

CKD-828 Drug Interaction Study (Telmisartan) [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the Pharmacokinetic drug interaction and safety of Telmisartan between free combination of Telmisartan and S-amlodipine and Telmisartan monotherapy.

Study to Investigate the Effect of Atorvastatin on the Pharmacokinetic Properties of Telmisartan/S-amlodipine [Completed]

Telmisartan, Amlodipine and Combination in Healthy Subjects [Completed]
To determine the pharmacokinetic profile of 80 mg telmisartan / 5 mg amlodipine (T80/A5) dose combination after single dose in healthy Chinese subjects. To determine whether a pharmacokinetic interaction exists between telmisartan and amlodipine, following single doses of 80mg telmisartan (T80), and 5 mg amlodipine (A5) tablet alone and in combination, in healthy Chinese subjects. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of T80 and A5 alone and in combination in healthy Chinese subjects.

Perindopril and Telmisartan for the Treatment of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease [Recruiting]
The aim of this current study was to assess the therapeutic effects of perindopril and telmisartan for hypertensive patients with NAFLD and make comparison between the therapeutic effects of these two kind of drugs. This study is a randomized parallel control clinical trial which would be carried out in Nanfang Hospital, Southern Medical University. About one hundred and eighty patients would be randomly assigned to perindopril,telmisartan and amlodipine three groups.
