  • Baroreflex Activation Therapy for Heart Failure

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this clinical trial (NCT02627196) is to develop valid scientific evidence for safety and effectiveness of Baroreflex Activation Therapy with the BAROSTIM NEO System in subjects with heart failure, defined as New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional Class III, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤ 35% and NT-proBNP<1600 pg/ml despite being treated with the appropriate heart failure guideline directed therapy, excluding subjects eligible for or actively receiving Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT). The total trial duration is anticipated to be approximately 5 years; however, the duration of an individual subject enrollment will depend on when he or she entered the trial.

  • EMPagliflozin outcomE tRial in Patients With chrOnic heaRt Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction (EMPEROR-Preserved)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a study in adults with chronic heart failure. People with chronic heart failure may need to be hospitalised for their condition. Some people with chronic heart failure may eventually die from their condition. The purpose of the study is to find out whether a medicine called empagliflozin lowers the chances of patients having to go to hospital for heart failure and whether it improves their survival. The study is open to patients with a type of chronic heart failure called chronic heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. Participants stay in the study until researchers have enough information about how effective empagliflozin is. It is expected that participants who enter at the very beginning of the enrolment period may be in the study for over 3 years, while participants who enter near the end of the enrolment period may be in the study for less than 2 years. The participants are put into 2 groups. It is decided by chance who gets into which group. One group gets empagliflozin tablets every day and the other group gets placebo tablets every day. Placebo tablets look like empagliflozin tablets but contain no medicine. Participants visit the doctors regularly. During these visits, the doctors collect information about the participant's health. The doctors want to know how many patients had to go to hospital because of heart failure or who died from cardiovascular disease.

  • Study to Evaluate the Efficacy (Effect on Disease) and Safety of Finerenone on Morbidity (Events Indicating Disease Worsening) & Mortality (Death Rate) in Participants With Heart Failure and Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (Proportion of Blood Expelled Per Heart Stroke) Greater or Equal to 40%

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of finerenone compared to placebo (a tablet without active substance) in the reduction of cardiovascular death (generally meaning death due to disease of the heart or blood vessels) and total Heart Failure (HF) events, including HF hospitalization and urgent visits for HF(generally meaning a hospital stay or urgent presentation to a healthcare unit due to worsening symptoms of heart failure) in patients suffering from HF with an ejection fraction greater than or equal to 40%. Researchers will also collect information on how much the heart disease has impact on patient's lives, change of kidney function, and how well finerenone treatment is tolerated. The study plans to enroll 5500 male and female patients of the age of 40 years and above suffering from heart failure with ejection fraction greater than or equal to 40%. Participants will take the study product as oral tablet with a dose between 0 (Placebo) 40 mg once daily. Study duration will be up to 43 months.
