Study to Evaluate Safety Tolerability Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of LCZ696 Followed by a 52-week Study of LCZ696 Compared With Enalapril in Pediatric Patients With Heart Failure

This study consist of two parts (Part 1 and Part 2). The purpose of Part 1 is to evaluate the way the body absorbs, distributes and removes the drug LCZ696. This will help determine the proper dose of LCZ696 for Part 2 of the study. The purpose for Part 2 ...


Clinical Trial of Systolic Heart Failure Treatment of IvabRadine Hemisulfate Sustained-release Tablets FIRST

Ivabradine acts by inhibiting the ionic If current that modulates the pacemaker activity of sinoatrial node cells. The aim of present study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of IvabRadine hemisulfate Sustained-release Tablets versus placebo in patients with moderate to severe chronic systolic heart failure.


Exercise in Patients With a Biventricular Pacemaker

The investigators will evaluate the effects of an exercise program (walking on a treadmill) on the physical performance, the cardiorespiratory function, the proclivity to heart arrhythmias and the quality of life of patients with severely impaired left ventricular function and a bi-ventricular resynchronization pacemaker.


Iron Supplementation in Heart Failure Patients With Anemia: The IRON-HF Study

The IRON-HF study is an investigator initiated, multicenter, prospectively designed,randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial. Randomization:Each of the eight participating centers will randomize patients by telephone contact with the randomization center at Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre. The randomization system will be based on a computerized table of random ...


Prednisone for Heart Failure Patients With Hyperuricemia

Hyperuricemia is a very common finding in patients with heart failure. It is usually related to diuretic use and deteriorated renal function. The recently evidence showed that prednisone and allopurinol may have similar effect on uric acid (UA) lowering in symptomatic heart failure patients with hyperuricemia, but prednisone may be ...


Long-term Prednisone Use for End-stage Heart Failure

Patients with advanced (ACCF/AHA stage D) heart failure and hyperuricemia have high one-year mortality. Currently, there was no evidence-based therapy such as mechanically assisted circulatory support available in China. The investigators found glucocorticoid treatment such as prednisone could improve cardiac performance, potentiate renal responsiveness to diuretics in such patients. Therefore, ...


N-Acetylcysteine in Heart Failure With Coexistent Chronic Renal Failure

Ten patients will be invited to participate in the trial. After obtaining informed consent, the ten patients will be randomly assigned to one month of treatment with oral n-acetylcysteine 500mg or placebo twice daily for thirty days in addition to their regular therapy. At enrolment the patients will be educated ...


Pressure Wire Guided Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy

Heart failure patients may benefit from having a special pacemaker implanted that can make the heart pump in a more coordinated and efficient way Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy (CRT). For the heart to pump well it is necessary for the pacing wires to be placed in optimal positions. Only two thirds ...


Short Stay Unit vs Hospitalization in Acute Heart Failure

Nearly 85% of acute heart failure (AHF) patients who present to the emergency department (ED) with acute heart failure (AHF) are hospitalized. Once hospitalized, within 30 days post-discharge, 27% of patients are re-hospitalized or die. Attempts to improve outcomes with novel therapies have all failed. The evidence for existing AHF ...


Compare the Effects of Single Versus Repeated Intracoronary Application of Autologous Bone Marrow-derived Mononuclear Cells on Mortality in Patients With Chronic Post-infarction Heart Failure

Improve mortality and morbidity in patients with symptomatic chronic post-infarction heart failure under full dose conventional medical and device treatment including resynchronization therapy, by single versus repeated intracoronary infusion of autologous bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells.
