AIM The aim of this analysis was to investigate the relationships between dyslipidemia, achieved blood pressure (BP) values and the lipid levels, as well as the control of four cardiovascular risk factors (BP, low-density lipoprotein: LDL cholesterol, hemoglobin A1c: HbA1c and smoking) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), in Japanese patients(More)
We investigated the relationship between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and the achieved blood pressure, dietary habits and the presence/absence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in hypertensive patients treated with olmesartan medoxomil. A prospective cohort study with a 3-year follow-up was conducted in 14 721 olmesartan-naive outpatients (mean age: 64.9 years,(More)
BACKGROUND Morning blood pressure (BP) surge, which exhibits an age-related increase, is a risk factor for stroke in elderly hypertensive patients, independently of the 24-h BP level. We studied the effect of the new baroreceptor sensitivity (BRS)-restoring Ca-channel blocker (CCB) azelnidipine (AZ) on this age-related morning BP increase. METHODS We(More)
For patients with hypertension, an individual risk prediction tool for cardiovascular disease based on on-treatment blood pressure is needed and would be useful. The objective of this study was to establish a 3-year risk prediction model for cardiovascular disease based on data from 13 052 patients with no history of cardiovascular disease in the Olmesartan(More)
BACKGROUND Morning hypertension is a risk factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events, and consequently diagnosis and control of morning hypertension are considered very important. We previously reported the results of the Azelnidipine Treatment for Hypertension Open-label Monitoring in the Early morning (At-HOME) Study, which indicated that(More)
BACKGROUND Morning hypertension is a risk factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events. Furthermore, it is a useful measure for definitive diagnosis of hypertension, and patients who self-assess their own blood pressure (BP) in the morning tend to exhibit better compliance with antihypertensive medication than those who do not. OBJECTIVE The(More)
