Multinational, prospective, proof of concept phase II, double-blinded, sham-controlled, randomized clinical trial (RCT) to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Remote Ischaemic PreConditioning (RIPC) in Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients receiving anthracyclines.


Multinational, prospective, proof of concept phase II, double-blinded, sham-controlled, randomized clinical trial (RCT) to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Remote Ischaemic PreConditioning (RIPC) in Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients receiving anthracyclines. Patients scheduled to undergo ≥5 chemotherapy cycles will be eligible. Patients fulfilling all inclusion and no exclusion criteria will be enrolled and undergo baseline Cardiac Magnetic Baseline (CMR), and high sensitivity troponin (hsTn) and NT-proBNP blood test. Patients with confirmed LVEF >40% by CMR will be randomized 1:1 to RIPC vs simulated RIPC (Sham). After the third chemotherapy cycle, a second CMR+ hsTn/ NT-proBNP will be performed for the validation of the early marker of cardiotoxicity. A third hsTn/ NT-proBNP blood test will be performed in the last chemotherapy cycle. Nine weeks after finishing chemotherapy, a last CMR+ hsTn/ NT-proBNP will be performed. Patients will be followed-up for clinical events at 6, 12, 18, 30 and 42 months until the last patient undergoes the final CMR. When the last patient undergoes the third CMR, the follow-up will be closed. The median follow-up estimation for clinical endpoints is 24 months (range: 6 to 42 months).
