Empagliflozin Impact on Hemodynamics in Patients With Diabetes and Heart Failure

2017-01-26 07:28:05 | BioPortfolio


The primary purpose of this trial is to evaluate the impact of empagliflozin, as compared with placebo, on hemodynamic parameters (pulmonary artery diastolic pressure) in patients with type 2 diabetes and heart failure (reduced or preserved ejection fraction, ischemic or non-ischemic etiology) who already have a CardioMEMs device implanted for non-study related clinical reasons.


A 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to explore the effects of once-daily empagliflozin 10mg on hemodynamic parameters (pulmonary artery pressures) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and heart failure (reduced or preserved ejection fraction, ischemic or non-ischemic etiology) who already have a CardioMEMs device implanted for non-study related clinical reasons.

Studies of Empagliflozin and Its Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolic Effects

The investigators hypothesise that empagliflozin 10mg daily will have haemodynamic, cardiac, and renal benefits compared to placebo over 36 weeks in heart failure patients with type 2 diab...

Analysing the Effect of Empagliflozin on Reduction of Tissue Sodium Content in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure

The hypothesis is that the SGLT-2 inhibitor empagliflozin reduces tissue sodium content in patients with chronic heart failure, and if the hypothesis is proven, that this mechanism contrib...

Renal function stratified dose comparisons of eplerenone versus placebo in the EMPHASIS-HF trial.

Current heart failure guidelines recommend target eplerenone dose of 50 mg/day. We have examined the effect of different eplerenone doses based on pre-specified renal function stratification in the ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.

Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
