Dapagliflozin Evaluation to Improve the LIVEs of Patients With PReserved Ejection Fraction Heart Failure.


Brief description of study

This is an international, multicentre, parallel-group, event-driven, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in HFpEF patients, evaluating the effect of dapagliflozin 10 mg versus placebo, given once daily in addition to background regional standard of care therapy, including treatments to control co-morbidities, in reducing the composite of CV death or heart failure events.

Detailed Study Description

This is an international, multicentre, parallel-group, event-driven, randomised, double-blind study in patients with HFpEF, evaluating the effect of dapagliflozin 10 mg versus placebo, given once daily in addition to background regional standard of care therapy, including treatments to control co-morbidities, in reducing the composite of CV death and heart failure events (hospitalisations for HF or urgent HF visits). Adult patients aged 40 years with HFpEF (LVEF >40% and evidence of structural heart disease) and New York Heart Association (NYHA) class II-IV who are eligible according to the inclusion/exclusion criteria will be randomised in a 1:1 ratio to receive either dapagliflozin 10 mg or placebo. Both out-patients and in-patients hospitalised for heart failure and off intravenous heart failure-therapy for 24 hours can be randomised. It is estimated that approximately 8000 patients at 400-500 sites in 20-25 countries will need to be enrolled to reach the target of approximately 4700 randomised patients.
