Details and patient eligibility


To evaluate the efficacy and the safety of concomitant use of Ezetimibe/Rosuvastatin combination tablets and Candesartan cilexetil/Amlodipine besylate combination tablets compared to each combination tablet alone in patients with essential hypertension (HTN) and hyperlipidemia.

Full description

To improve the ease of use of high blood pressure and hyperlipidemia to improve patient compliance and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. And It is recommended to identify the need to develop a combination of Candesartan cilexetil/Amlodipine besylate combination tablets , and Ezetimibe/Rosuvastatin combination tablets.


127 patients




19 to 74 years old


No Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion and exclusion criteria

[ Inclusion Criteria ]

  • Presence of biliary obstruction or cholestasis.
  • Presence of hereditary conditions such as galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency, or glucose-galactose malabsorption.

Patients with shock.

* Criteria Related to Clinical Laboratory Tests

Laboratory abnormalities as follows:
