While preliminary data show that oral nicotinamide riboside (NR) supplementation increases myocardial levels of oxidized nicotine-adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) levels in mice, there has been no direct evidence that suggests oral NR increases NAD+ levels or improves mitochondrial function in human hearts. This Pilot Study is designed to obtain feasibility data for a planned, larger study testing the hypothesis that oral NR supplementation will increase myocardial NAD+ levels and improve cardiomyocyte mitochondrial function in participants with advanced heart failure planned for elective left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. To demonstrate safety and feasibility of NR in this patient population, the investigators propose to enroll 5 participants planned for LVAD implantation in a Pilot Study of NR in which participants will receive NR, up-titrated over 3 days to a final NR dose of 1000mg twice daily. Blood and myocardial tissue analyses collected previously from age- and gender-matched LVAD recipients will serve as controls.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) response in a real-world patient population and evaluate options to address non-response and patient management.
This is a multi-center observational non-interventional prospective study. A Single-arm, open, database establishment for R&D purposes when R&D data will be analyzed retrospectively for efficacy at the end of the study. The study will be conducted in the following settings: Hospital and at home.
Introduction: Recent studies have suggested that the use of acetazolamide may assist in the vol- ume management of patients with decompensated heart failure (HF). However, prospective and randomized comparison in patients with HF and optimized diuretic therapy has not been described. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the use of acetazolamide versus placebo in volume control in patients with decompensated HF. Methodology: For this, a unicentric, randomized, double blind and prospective study will be performed in a comparative manner. Hospital data (test results, medical outcomes, drug dose, complications) of patients will be analyzed for safety and effectiveness. Expected results: The use of acetazolamide as an adjuvant treatment is superior to the standard strategy for volume control in patients with decompensated HF.
In the current study we wish to investigate the effects on glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) of a neprilysin inhibitor
Heart failure is one of the major causes of hospitalization in Brazil and worldwide. Recent studies attempt to identify readmission and prognostic markers at the time of discharge from these patients. The reassessment and possibility of early therapeutic adjustment may be relevant in this context. Therefore, the prospective and randomized comparative use of early re-evaluation in Hospital-day versus non-intervention group has not yet been described. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact on the re-hospitalization rate in 30 days of the early re-evaluation of the patients in the day-hospital versus the non-intervention group in heart failure. For this, a unicentric, randomized and prospective study will be performed, in which the Hospital-Day strategy is performed versus no intervention in a comparative manner. Hospital data (test results, medical outcomes, complications) of patients will be analyzed for safety and effectiveness. The hypothesis of this study is that the Hospital-Day strategy is superior to the non-intervention strategy and causes fewer rehospitalizations within 30 days.
We believe that blocking of the Greater Splanchnic Nerve (GSN) will stop Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) activity from reaching the splanchnic vessels and result in a redistribution of blood volume back into the splanchnic reservoir, which will result in reduction of central venous, pulmonary and right and left heart pressures. For patients having Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF) we expect these changes to improve dyspnea and capacity to exercise, improve quality of life, increased diuretic responsiveness, Furthermore, the expected benefits of unloading the central venous and arterial system through GSN ablation should improve hemodynamic control and lessen the incidence and severity of acute decompensations leading to reduced re-hospitalizations and associated healthcare costs. This has the potential for significant social and healthcare impact.
In the present study, consecutive patients, older than 18 years, of both genders will be included. The diagnosis of reduced Heart Failure (HfrEF) according to: Clinical pattern, laboratories and Cardiac imaging (ESC criteria). Treatment will be assigned in two groups: Bumetanide and another group will be received Indapamide. Each group received maximum tolerated dose for seven days with Clinical and labs evaluations will be every 48 hrs. (Face-to-face and/or telephone visits). Serum and urinary labs, EKG´s, Echo will be evaluated. Daily in-home register will made. Final points were: Mortality, Urinary failure, Clinical Impairment, Hospital admissions, Oedema. (MUCHO). All patients will be followed for 30 days.
The overall objective of this study is to describe the effectiveness of Flublok Quadrivalent vaccine compared to standard dose inactivated influenza vaccine (SD-IIV) in adults 18 through 64 years of age. During this study, Flublok Quadrivalent or SD-IIV will be administered according to the guidelines in the Prescribing Information materials and only to persons for whom it is indicated. The 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 formulations of recombinant influenza vaccine (Flublok Quadrivalent vaccine) and SD-IIV will be evaluated for outcomes including all polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-confirmed influenza, PCR-confirmed hospitalized influenza, hospitalized community-acquired pneumonia and cardio-respiratory events.
150 patients admitted to University Hospital Southampton with heart failure will undergo comprehensive Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) imagining during their admission and continuous heart rhythm monitoring using wearable technology post discharge. We hypothesise that analysis of this outcome data will discover novel CMR tissue characterisation and heart rhythm biomarkers that can be used to predict adverse clinical outcomes in heart failure populations and how individual patients will respond to specific therapies.
