The CLIMATE Observational Study examines to what extent chronically ill patients experience adverse health effects because of heat and whether the patients' specific efforts, somatosensory amplification, self-efficacy, health literacy and commitment to the GP, degree of urbanisation of the patients' administration district and characteristics of the patients' neighborhood are associated with these effects.
Researchers are looking for a better way to treat people who have chronic heart failure. Chronic heart failure is a medical condition with shortness of breath, tiredness and ankle swelling in which the heart does not pump blood as well as it should. BAY2413555 is a new compound which is under development for the treatment of heart failure. Heart failure is a serious disease in which the heart pumps less well. BAY2413555 is expected to protect the heart and improve cardiac function. The main purpose of this study is to learn how safe BAY2413555 is compared to placebo in participants with chronic heart failure and implanted cardiac defibrillator, or cardiac resynchronization devices (ICD/CRT). A placebo is a treatment that looks like a medicine, but does not have any medicine in it. ICD/CRT are machines placed in the body that use an electric shock/impulse to reset the heart or get it beating correctly. To study the safety, the researchers will record all medical problems the participants may have during the study after starting the study treatment. Medical problems that happen after the participants have started their treatment are also known as "treatment emergent adverse events" (TEAEs). The TEAEs will be compared between participants who received BAY2413555 and those who received placebo. The second purpose of this study is to learn whether BAY2413555 effects electrical signals inside the heart compared to placebo. The study has two parts, A and B. Each part will last for two weeks. In part A, the participants will be assigned by chance to either take BAY2413555 as a tablet by mouth once per day or a placebo. Participants from part A who do not need to stop the study based on predefined criteria continue in part B. They will be assigned by chance to receive either the same dose of BAY2413555 as in part A or a higher dose. Participants who have taken placebo in part A will as well be assigned in part B. Each participant will be in the study for approximately 90 days (including the screening period and follow-up period). In the study, participants will take study medication for 28 days. 8 visits to the study site and 1 telephone contact visit are planned. During the study, the study team will: - do physical examinations - check vital signs - examine heart health using ECG - check the participants' ICD/CRT information - take exercise testing - take blood and urine samples - ask the participants questions about how they are feeling about their quality of life - ask the participants questions about how they are feeling and what adverse events they are having. An adverse event is any problem that happens during the trial. Doctors keep track of all adverse events that happen in trials, even if they do not think the adverse events might be related to the study treatments or a study procedure. Participants will be closely monitored during the entire study duration and site personnel will take action to mitigate any negative effect, if any, as appropriate. About 30 days after the participants take their last treatment, the study doctors and their team will check the participants' health.
This is a two-part study evaluating the effectiveness of CRD-740 in patients with either Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF) or Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF) after 12 weeks of treatment. The primary objective in Part A is to assess the effect of CRD-740 compared to placebo in plasma cGMP at Week 4. The primary objective in Part B is to determine whether CRD-740 reduces NT-proBNP compared to placebo at Week 12.
As part of National Institutes of Health Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics-Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) program, the goal of the RADxUP study is to develop, test, and evaluate a rapid, scalable capacity building project to enhance COVID-19 testing in three regional community health centers (CHCs) in San Diego County, California. In collaboration with CHC partners, their consortium organization, Health Quality Partners (HQP), investigators are pursuing the following Specific Aims: 1) Compare the effectiveness of automated calls vs text messaging for uptake of COVID-19 testing among asymptomatic adult patients with select medical conditions and those 65 years of age and older receiving care at participating CHCs. Secondarily, investigators will invite all study participants to receive flu vaccination and will assess feasibility and acceptability of study participants to refer adult family household members who are essential workers for COVID-19 testing. 2) Gather patient, provider, CHC leadership, and community stakeholder insights to establish best practices for future scale-up of COVID-19 testing sustainability and vaccination.
This study will assess the feasibility and efficacy of using serum assay developed by Quest Diagnostics to detect the presence of beta blockers, specifically carvedilol and metoprolol succinate, in patients with heart failure.
This study will be looking at how cardiovascular hemodynamics, including cardiac output and flow through a left ventricular assist device (LVADs), change in response to alterations in preload, afterload, and contractility, and also during exercise, in humans with heart failure who are supported by LVADs.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and effect on cardiac function of intravenous APD418 in adult participants with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).
This will be a FTIH study which aims to evaluate safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of single and repeat oral doses of GSK3884464 administered to healthy participants.
Patients with an intermediate risk (HFA-PEFF score 2-4 points) for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) will be further investigated with invasive right heart catheterization. All patients with a resting pulmonary artery wedge pressure (PAWP) <15mmHg will undergo the following stress test modalities in a randomized order: (1) bicycle ergometry, (2) dynamic handgrip exercise, (3) 500ml fluid challenge over 5 minutes, (4) leg raise testing. Exercise induced HFpEF will be diagnosed if PAWP rises to >25mmHg.
To ascertain the potential symptom improvement assessed by Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) in subjects with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and nonthrombotic iliofemoral venous lesions and/or iliocaval obstruction defined by MR or CT venography AND CEAP Clinical Category ≥3 prior to venous stenting.
