The purpose of the trial is the analysis of safety and efficacy of the chymase inhibitor BAY1142524 at a dose of 25 mg BID in comparison to placebo using a 6 months treatment period in patients with left-ventricular (LV) dysfunction after myocardial infarction (MI). BAY1142524 or placebo will be given on top of evidence-based standard of care for left-ventricular dysfunction after myocardial infarction. Primary objective is the analysis of first signs of efficacy as determined by favourable changes in functional parameters of adverse cardiac remodelling (i.e. endsystolic and enddiastolic volume index, ejection fraction). Secondary objective is the analysis of safety and tolerability as evidenced by the incidence and severity of adverse events. 30 patients have to complete treatment with verum and 30 patients have to complete treatment with placebo.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether erythropoietin is superior to placebo with respect to left ventricular ejection fraction in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarcti...
Phase IV investigator initiated clinical trial to study the effectiveness of alirocumab, an inhibitor of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin (PCSK9), versus placebo added to high-intens...
The purpose of this study is to determine if oral atorvastatin administered just before percutaneous coronary angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction improves early and late heart func...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of intravenous human beta natriuretic peptide (BNP, Nesiritide) as compared to placebo to prevent adverse post acute myocardial infar...
We planned to evaluate the effects of liraglutide on left ventricular function in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI).
The development and implementation of sensitive and high-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays has not only expedited the early ruling in and ruling out of acute myocardial infarction, but has also cont...
Intracoronary infusion of autologous nucleated bone marrow cells (BMCs) enhanced the recovery of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in t...
Current non-invasive diagnostics for acute myocardial infarction (MI) identify myocardial necrosis rather than the primary cause and therapeutic target-plaque disruption and resultant thrombosis. The ...
Inhibition of complement factor 5 (C5) reduced myocardial infarction in animal studies, while no benefit was found in clinical studies. Due to lack of cross-reactivity of clinically used C5 antibodies...
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
