DETERMINE-preserved - Dapagliflozin Effect on Exercise Capacity Using a 6-minute Walk Test in Patients With Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction
  • Age: Between 40 - 150 Days
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Provision of signed informed consent prior to any study specific procedures
  • Male or female, aged 40 years
  • Established documented diagnosis of symptomatic HFpEF (NYHA functional class II-IV), which has been present for at least 8 weeks
  • LVEF>40% and evidence of structural heart disease
  • Elevated NT-proBNP levels
  • Patients should receive background standard of care as described below: All patients will be treated according to locally recognised guidelines on standard of care treatment for patients with HFpEF. Therapy should have been individually optimised and stable for 4 weeks (this does not apply to diuretics) and include (unless contraindicated or not tolerated) treatment of co morbidities (including high blood pressure, ischaemic heart disease, atrial fibrillation/flutter).
  • 6MWD100 metres and 425 metres at enrolment and randomization

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Presence of any condition that precludes exercise testing
  • Participation in a structured exercise training programme in the 1 month prior to screening or planned to start during the trial
  • Receiving therapy with an SGLT2 inhibitor within 4 weeks prior to enrolment or previous intolerance of an SGLT2 inhibitor
  • Type 1 diabetes mellitus
  • eGFR <25 mL/min/1.73 m2 (CKD-EPI formula) at enrolment, unstable or rapidly progressing renal disease at time of randomisation
  • Systolic BP <95 mmHg on 2 consecutive measurements
  • Systolic BP 160 mmHg if not on treatment with 3 blood pressure lowering medications or 180 mmHg irrespective of treatments, on 2 consecutive measurements
  • Current acute decompensated HF or hospitalisation due to decompensated HF <4 weeks prior to enrolment
  • MI, unstable angina, coronary revascularization ablation of atrial fibrillation/flutter, valve repair/replacement, implantation of a cardiac resynchronization therapy device within 12 weeks prior to enrolment or planned to undergo any of these operations after randomization.
  • Stroke or transient ischemic attack within 12 weeks prior to enrolment.
  • Primary pulmonary hypertension, chronic pulmonary embolism, severe pulmonary disease including COPD.
  • Previous cardiac transplantation or implantation of a ventricular assistance device or similar device, or implantation expected after randomization
  • HF due to infiltrative cardiomyopathy, active myocarditis, constrictive pericarditis, cardiac tamponade, known genetic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia, or uncorrected primary valvular disease
