The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of fixed combination of lercanidipine (10 mg or 20 mg) and valsartan (80 mg or 160 mg), lercanidipine and valsartan alone in reducing blood pressure. The study will investigate the dose response relationship for the combinations and monotherapies.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • sitDBP [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Average changes from baseline in sitDBP

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • sitDBP [ Time Frame: Week 4, 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response rates (proportion of patients sitDBP<90mmHg or ≥10-mmHg reduction from baseline)

  • sitDBP [ Time Frame: Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Average changes from baselin in sitDBP

  • sitSBP [ Time Frame: Week 4, 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Average changes from baselini in sitSBP
