Clinical Trial Summary

The aim of our study is to evaluate if the use of a precision-medicine approach with a specific therapy tailored on the underlying pathogenic mechanism will improve the quality-of-life in MINOCA patients. The investigators further aim at investigating wherever a precision-medicine approach will improve the prognosis, healthcare related costs, and if that a different profile of plasma biomarkers and microRNAs may serve as diagnostic tools for detecting specific causes of MINOCA and to assess response to therapy. Finally, beyond its pivotal role in differential diagnosis, the investigators hypothesize that cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) may provide a morphological and functional cardiac characterization as well as help in the prognostic stratification.


Clinical Trial Description

PROMISE study is a randomized multicenter prospective superiority phase IV trial comparing "precision medicine approach" versus "standard of care" in improving the prognosis and/or the quality-of-life of patients presenting with MINOCA. Patients will be randomized 1:1 to "precision medicine approach" consisting of a comprehensive diagnostic work up aim at elucidating the pathophysiological mechanism of MINOCA and consequently a tailored pharmacological approach versus "standard of care" consisting of standard diagnostic algorithm and therapy for myocardial infarction. The aim of the study is to evaluate if the use of a precision-medicine approach with a specific therapy tailored on the underlying pathogenic mechanism will improve the quality-of-life in MINOCA patients (primary objective). The investigators further aim at investigating wherever a precision-medicine approach will improve the prognosis, healthcare related costs, and if that a different profile of plasma biomarkers and microRNAs may serve as diagnostic tools for detecting specific causes of MINOCA and to assess response to therapy (secondary objectives). Finally, beyond its pivotal role in differential diagnosis, the investigators hypothesize that cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) may provide a morphological and functional cardiac characterization as well as help in the prognostic stratification (secondary objective). The study is a multicentre trial involving 3 centers: IRCCS Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli (Study Promoter), Centro Cardiologico Monzino IRCCS, IRCCS Policlinico San Donato. It will include 180 patients aged >18 years hospitalized for MINOCA randomized 1:1 to a "precision medicine approach" consisting of a comprehensive diagnostic work-up, analysis of circulating biomarkers and micro RNA expression profile and pharmacological treatment specific for the underlying cause versus a "standard approach" consisting of routine diagnostic work-up and standard medical treatment. ;
