About the study

The purpose of the study is to show the blood pressure lowering effect of aprocitentan, a new drug, when added to other anti-hypertensive drugs of patients with difficult to control (resistant) high blood pressure (hypertension), and to show that blood pressure reduction is kept for long period of time.

Who can take part?

You may be eligible to participate in the study if you meet the following criteria:

Inclusion criteria

Run-in period (RI): - Switched to the standardized background antihypertensive therapy at least 4 weeks before the first RI visit; - Mean trough SiSBP ≥ 140 mmHg as measured by AOBPM. Randomization period: - Stable dose of the standardized background antihypertensive therapy for at least 1 week before the end of the RI period; - Mean trough SiSBP ≥ 140 mmHg measured by AOBPM.
Exclusion criteria
  1. Apparent/pseudo RHT due to white coat effect, medical inertia, poor therapeutic adherence, or secondary causes of hypertension (except sleep apnea);
  2. Confirmed severe hypertension (grade 3) defined as SiSBP≥180 mmHg and/or SiDBP≥110 mmHg as measured by AOBPM at two different timepoints;
  3. Pregnant or lactating subjects;
  4. Clinically significant unstable cardiac disease at screening or in the past in the opinion of the investigator (exclusion of participants with significant or potential unstable cardiac disease);
  5. Severe renal insufficiency;
  6. Any known factor, disease or clinically relevant medical or surgical conditions that, in the opinion of the investigator, might put the subject at risk, interfere with treatment compliance, study conduct or interpretation of the results.
