Condition(s) targeted: Hypertension

Intervention: Telmisartan (Drug); Placebo (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Boehringer Ingelheim

Summary

Study to assess the blood pressure lowering effects of two doses of telmisartan over a four-week treatment period; to determine potentially effective doses for pediatric patients for future studies; to assess the safety and tolerability of two doses of telmisartan. Pharmacokinetic objectives included the determination of the steady-state pharmacokinetics of telmisartan in children and adolescents aged 6 to <18 years, and to determine if age-related differences exist

Clinical Details

Official title: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Evaluation of the Safety, Efficacy and Pharmacokinetics of MICARDIS (Telmisartan) in Children and Adolescents With Hypertension After Four Weeks of Treatment

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Change from baseline in seated systolic blood pressure (SBP)

Secondary outcome:

Change from baseline in seated diastolic blood pressure (DBP)

Response rate of blood pressure

Cmax,ss (maximum concentration of the analyte in plasma at steady state over a uniform dosing interval)

Cmin,ss (minimum measured concentration of the analyte in plasma at steady state over a uniform dosing interval)

Cpre,ss (predose concentration of the analyte in plasma at steady state immediately before administration of the next dose)

Cavg (Average concentration of the analyte in plasma at steady state)

tmax,ss (time from dosing to maximum concentration at steady state)

AUCτ,ss (area under the concentration time curve of the analyte in plasma at steady state over a uniform dosing interval)

t1/2,ss (terminal half-life of the analyte in plasma at steady state)

MRTpo,ss (mean residence time of the analyte in the body at steady state)

CL/F,ss (apparent clearance of the analyte in the plasma after extravascular administration at steady state)

Vz/F,ss (apparent volume of distribution during the terminal phase λz following an extravascular dose at steady state)

PTF (peak trough fluctuation)

Number of patients with adverse events
