EMPERIAL-reduced will investigate Jardiance in patients with chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).
The data suggests that dietary supplementation may be a valuable addition to treatment for exercise intolerance among heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction, Coggan said.
An ejection fraction of 35 to 39 percent is moderately below normal and is considered mild heart failure, when the left ventricle doesn't contract strongly enough and less blood is pumped throughout the body.
Protein C and S deficiency, antiphospolipid syndrome, myeloproliferative disorders, idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome, pheochromocytoma, and Takatsubo cardiomyopathy were reported to be related with thrombus formation in patients with a normal LV ejection fraction (8-10).
Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is an increasingly recognized form, and accounts for almost 50% of all admissions for decompensate heart failure.
In the new study, 34 laboratory rats with hypertension and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction were given infusions of cardiac stem cells.
Now that LCZ696 is approved, cardiologists expect the new drug will take its place as a primary drug for treating heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.
People with this type of heart failure have ejection fractions of 10 to 40 percent.
Not so in PARAGON, which requires subjects to have symptomatic heart failure, an ejection fraction of 45% or more, and evidence of structural heart disease along with either a hospitalization for heart failure within the previous 9 months or elevated natriuretic peptides.
There are additional trials that are in process now with even more preserved ejection fractions looking for benefits of ICDs.
