Summary

The main objective of this study is to determine the clinical efficacy of oral inorganic nitrite verses placebo and the therapeutic response with regards to exercise tolerance in patients with pulmonary hypertension and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (PH-HFpEF).

Description

This is a single-center, 22-week double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled cross-over trial of oral nitrite on exercise capacity and hemodynamic measurements in subjects with PH-HFpEF.
