Intravenous Allopurinol in Heart Failure

This study tests the hypothesis that allopurinol, a xanthine oxidase inhibitor, improves heart metabolism in patients with heart failure.

Allopurinol in Chronic Heart Failure

The purpose of this study is to discover whether the inhibition of the xanthine oxidase with allopurinol leads to a reduction of the production of oxygen free radicals in patients with CHF...

Study to Evaluate sUA-Lowering Activity, Safety & PK Interaction of Oral BCX4208 & Allopurinol Admin. in Subjects w/Gout

To evaluate safety and efficacy of BCX4208 alone and in combination with allopurinol in subjects with gout.

Prednisone for Heart Failure Patients With Hyperuricemia

Hyperuricemia is a very common finding in patients with heart failure. It is usually related to diuretic use and deteriorated renal function. The recently evidence showed that uric acid (U...

Allopurinol Combination Study

Safety of Alpha Adrenergic Receptor Antagonists in Heart Failure.

This study evaluated whether alpha-blocker (AB) use following an admission for heart failure (HF) was associated with an increased risk of HF readmission or death.

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).
