Pharmacogenomic Evaluation of Antihypertensive Responses (PEAR and PEAR-2)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The primary aim of the Pharmacogenomic Evaluation of Antihypertensive Responses grant (funded by NIH Pharmacogenomic Research Network grant U01 GM074492) was to identify genetic determinants of blood pressure response and adverse events after antihypertensive treatments. Two different clinical trials with genomic information available were included: PEAR-1 and PEAR-2 studies.
The PEAR-1 study (clinicaltrials.gov identifier NCT00246519) was a randomized controlled clinical trial evaluating genetic determinants of BP responses and adverse metabolic responses to atenolol and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) monotherapy and in combination (PMID: 19249413). Briefly, PEAR-1 recruited 768 hypertension individuals with uncomplicated hypertension who were randomized to either monotherapy of atenolol 50 mg daily or HCTZ 12.5 mg daily for 3 weeks, followed by dose titration to 100 mg and 25 mg daily, then the combination therapy. BP and metabolic responses to monotherapy and combination therapy were assessed after an average of 9 weeks of antihypertensive treatment. BP was measured using ... (Show More)
