AIM: Evaluation of efficacy and safety of long-term (24 weeks) administration of a combined therapy of ACE inhibitors (lisinopril) and calcium-channel antagonists with long-term action (amlodipine) (with or without diuretics). METHOD: A total number of 98 patients of both genders were included in the prospective, open trial. Evaluation of efficacy of the trial was carried out by careful monitoring of anamnesis and physical examination, blood-pressure values, pulse, body weight, ECG test and echocardiographic test. Evaluation of safety of the trial was based on the evaluation of a physician, standard laboratory evaluation, adverse effects. RESULT: Mean value of blood pressure in the beginning of clinical trial was significantly reduced (from 197.65 +/- 18.05/107.1+/-13.1 mm Hg, to 139.85 +/-10.45/82.6+/-5.47 mmHg) after 24 weeks, without special oscillations in last three months. The pulse remained within physiological limits. In 73.08% patients, echocardiographic test has proven an improvement of ejection fraction. Minor adverse effects have been reported, which were not a reason for interruption of the treatment, with the exception of 3 cases (lower leg oedema, dry cough). CONCLUSION: An extremely good effect in patients with moderate hypertension was reported in the trial, as well as in patients with severe hypertension with good tolerance.
