Ranolazine in Diastolic Heart Failure

2014-08-27 03:12:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Patients with CAD and clinical symptoms of heart failure or patients with suspected heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) will be enrolled. Study drug will be given as continuous IV infusion followed by oral treatment for 13 days. LV pressures and hemodynamic data will be measured prior to and after administration of study drug. In addition, Doppler ECHO, cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), and NT-pro-BNP determination will be performed. Adverse events and safety labs will be collected and monitored.

Description

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled proof-of-concept study of ranolazine in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Patients will be randomized to receive ranolazine or placebo in a 1.5:1 ratio (12 ranolazine: 8 placebo).

Treatment will consist of intravenous infusion of study drug followed by oral treatment for a total of 14 days treatment period. Study contact will be made approximately 14 days after the treatment period to assess safety.

Cardiac catheterization will be performed for LV pressures and hemodynamic measurements before and after drug administration. Doppler ECHO, CPET, and NT-pro-BNP determination will be performed at screening and at end of study. Adverse events and safety labs will be monitored and collected.

Beneficial effect of body weight control on left ventricular diastolic function in the general population: an analysis of longitudinal data from a health check-up clinic.

Left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction may lead to heart failure. A high body mass index (BMI) is associated with worse LV diastolic function. However, knowledge of the longitudinal relation betw...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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.

A selective beta-1-adrenergic partial agonist. Because it is a partial agonist (DRUG PARTIAL AGONISM) it acts like an agonist when sympathetic activity is low and as an antagonist when sympathetic activity is high. It reduces MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA and improves ventricular function in patients with mild to moderate heart failure. In patients with severe heart failure it has been shown to produce benefits in systolic and diastolic function.

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 sounds caused by vibrations resulting from the flow of blood through the heart. Heart murmurs can be examined by HEART AUSCULTATION, and analyzed by their intensity (6 grades), duration, timing (systolic, diastolic, or continuous), location, transmission, and quality (musical, vibratory, blowing, etc).
