Background and objective: Recently the PatenT (Prevalence, awareness, treatment and control of hypertension in Turkey) study showed that while the prevalence of hypertension in Turkey is high, effective control of BP is infrequently achieved. This study investigated the efficacy and safety of quinapril (as monotherapy or in combination with hydrochlorothiazide [HCTZ]) for achieving BP control (target < 140/90mm Hg) in Turkish subjects with mild to moderate hypertension.
