About This clinical research study

MAC Clinical Research is currently conducting a clinical trial to evaluate an investigational drug for hypertension (high blood pressure). Untreated hypertension can increase the risk of several other health problems, including heart attack, so it is important to treat high blood pressure (BP).

While several treatments already exist, many patients do not respond adequately to these BP medications and research to discover better treatments is needed.

A full description of the study will be given before you decide to take part, both over the phone and during an appointment at a MAC clinic. This will include you receiving the full patient information sheet and an opportunity to ask the study doctor any questions.

If you contact us, it does not mean you have to decide at that point whether to participate.
If you do decide to participate you are free to withdraw at any time.

There will be approx. 19 outpatient visits plus 2 x 2-night residential stays included in these are 3 DEXA scan visits. There is a chance you may be followed up with additional visits to check your AGT (angiotensinogen protein) levels, and the total time in the study may be up to 9 to 18 months. There is no certainty that you will receive any medical benefit from taking part in this study.

Reimbursement: If you are eligible and decide to participate, we will provide reasonable travel expenses or transport to and from the clinic, including travel to the DEXA facility in York and you will receive £3460 for your time and commitment.
