The purpose of this study is to determine whether using a mobile app increases adherence to a heart healthy prescription after discharge from a cardiac rehab program.
A multi-center randomized controlled clinical trial to evaluate Autonomic Regulation Therapy with the VITARIA system in patients with symptomatic heart failure and reduced ejection fraction.
Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in heart failure (HF), and is associated with an imbalance in intracellular ratio of reduced nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide (NADH) to oxidized nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide (NAD), or the NADH/NAD ratio. In mouse models of HF, we have found that normalization of the NADH/NAD, through supplementation with NAD+ precursors, is associated with improvement in cardiac function. This Study will randomize participants with systolic HF (ejection fraction ≤40%) to treatment with the NAD precursor, nicotinamide riboside (NR) or matching placebo, uptitrated to a final oral dose of 1000mg twice daily, to determine the safety and tolerability of NR in participants with systolic HF.
This is a clinical trial of CMR guidance for the CRT procedure. Patients will be randomized to CMR guidance or standard care for the CRT procedure.
The intent of the study is to show the potential benefits of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors in preventing anthracycline induced cardiotoxicity. This is a prospective, randomized, blinded and placebo-controlled clinical trial that will enroll patients who are to be treated with anthracycline chemotherapy (doxorubicin, epirubicin, idrarubicin, or mitoxantone) to either lisinopril or placebo group. The study will be performed at the Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute. The treating oncologist who intends to start the patient on anthracycline chemotherapeutic agent will provide the patient with a recruitment flyer and informed consent form and then referred to the research nurse. Subjects interested in participation, that do not meet any of the exclusion criteria, will be consented and enrolled by the research nurse prior to their first treatment with chemotherapy. Over a period of 1 to 3 weeks the study medication will be titrated in a stepwise fashion to a target of 20 mg daily, maintaining a systolic blood pressure greater than 90 mmHg. A baseline echocardiogram with strain and strain rate imaging will be obtained prior to initiation of anthracycline chemotherapy. Subsequent echocardiograms with strain and strain rate imaging will be performed every 3 months for a total of 12 months. Patients will be followed for a total of 12 months, starting on the day of enrollment. We intend to recruit a total of 200 patients. The primary endpoint of this study is a change in change in strain and strain rate parameters prior to, during, and after anthracycline chemotherapy compared to placebo. Study data will be collected and managed using the Ascension installation of REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture). REDCap is a secure, web application designed to support data capture for research studies, providing user-friendly web-based case report forms, real-time data entry validation (e.g. for data types and range checks), audit trails and a de-identified data export mechanism to common statistical packages. Echocardiographic data will be stored in cine-loop format on a private, password protected echocardiogram viewing software and analyzed by a separate blinded cardiologist. Patients will be evaluated according to the standard oncologic evaluation. The treating oncologist will make decisions on their treatment based on their personal standards and clinical judgement.
The GUIDE-HF IDE clinical trial is intended to demonstrate the effectiveness of the CardioMEMS™ HF System in an expanded patient population including heart failure (HF) patients outside of the present indication, but at risk for future HF events or mortality.
This is a Phase I/II randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single rising dose study in patients with systolic heart failure to evaluate the safety and tolerability of ITI-214.
Real-world evidence of the clinical course of patient symptoms following initiation of sacubitril/valsartan via PROs with a patient-centered study design will provide important evidence of potentially beneficial outcomes associated with the use of this therapy.
The investigators goal is to assess real-world effectiveness of patient decision aids (PtDA) for high-risk decisions using the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) as a model.
The SODA-HF trial is a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial to evaluate the effect of moderate to severe sodium restriction on brain natriuretic peptide in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (less than 40%). Secondary outcomes are quality of life, NYHA functional class, glomerular filtration rate, renin plasmatic activity, aldosterone and composite clinical outcome (all-cause mortality and cardiovascular hospitalization)
