Phase 3 Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo- and Active-Controlled, Multi-center, Parallel Group Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Darusentan in Subjects with Resistant Hypertension Receiving Combination Therapy with Three or more Antihypertensive Drugs, Including a Diuretic, as Compared to Guanfacine or Placebo

5. ACT – START DATE: 5/2005 The purpose of this registry to produce a prospective, outcome-oriented registry of all patients implanted with an SJM ICD. The secondary aim of the registry is to evaluate the programming and application of advanced features on ICD therapy in patients with SJM ICD’s.

6. ULTRA- START DATE: 7/2005 The primary objective of the Ultra study is to demonstrate a difference in average ventricular voltage output over time for patients randomized to Automatic Capture ON versus patients randomized to Automatic Capture OFF. The primary analysis for this objective will be based on the difference between the group in the average ventricular voltage output over the course of follow-up.

7. OMNI- START DATE: 9/2005 The Medtronic OMNI Study is a post-market observational study conducted in the United States (US). The purpose of the OMNI study is to characterize therapy and diagnostic utilization in study participants implanted with study devices and to describe Implatable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

8. MEDTRONIC P3- START DATE: 2/5005 The objective of the P3 study are to characterize the relationship between subject clinical profile at implant. Also to characterize clinical outcome and clinical management practice patterns.
