Hemodynamic Effects of Aliskiren Compared to Captopril on the Kidney in Healthy Volunteers on a Low- and High- Sodium Diet

This study will measure the effects of different doses of aliskiren on kidney blood flow and function in healthy adults and determine how salt intake affects the response to aliskiren.

Effects of Aliskiren on Patient With Heart Failure and a Normal Ejection Fraction

The primary objective of this study is to determine whether treatment with aliskiren (300 mg) compared to placebo will improve treadmill exercise time in older (age ≥ 55 years) patients ...

Effects of Aliskiren, Ramipril, and the Combination on Levels of Angiotensin II in Patients With Systolic Heart Failure

In addition to the blood pressure lowering effects of aliskiren, it may have beneficial effects on blocking the so called RAAS (renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system) at the tissue level. A...

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 relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.

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

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).
