Heart Failure Clinical Trial
Dapagliflozin Evaluation to Improve the LIVEs of Patients With PReserved Ejection Fraction Heart Failure.
This is an international, multicentre, parallel-group, event-driven, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in HFpEF patients, evaluating the effect of dapagliflozin 10 mg versus placebo, given once daily in addition to background regional standard of care therapy, including treatments to control co-morbidities, in reducing the composite of CV death or heart failure events.
This is an international, multicentre, parallel-group, event-driven, randomised, double-blind study in patients with HFpEF, evaluating the effect of dapagliflozin 10 mg versus placebo, given once daily in addition to background regional standard of care therapy, including treatments to control co-morbidities, in reducing the composite of CV death and heart failure events (hospitalisations for HF or urgent HF visits). Adult patients aged â‰¥40 years with HFpEF (LVEF >40% and evidence of structural heart disease) and New York Heart Association (NYHA) class II-IV who are eligible according to the inclusion/exclusion criteria will be randomised in a 1:1 ratio to receive either dapagliflozin 10 mg or placebo. Both out-patients and in-patients hospitalised for heart failure and off intravenous heart failure-therapy for 24 hours can be randomised. It is estimated that approximately 11000 patients at approximately 400-500 sites in 20-25 countries will need to be enrolled to reach the target of approximately 6100 randomised patients.
Provision of signed informed consent prior to any study specific procedures.
Male or female patients age â‰¥40 years.
Documented diagnosis of symptomatic heart failure (NYHA class II-IV) at enrolment, and a medical history of typical symptoms/signs of heart failure â‰¥6 weeks before enrolment with at least intermittent need for diuretic treatment.
Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF) >40% and evidence of structural heart disease (i.e. left ventricular hypertrophy or left atrial enlargement ) documented by the most recent echocardiogram, and/or cardiac MR within the last 12 months prior to enrolment. For patients with prior acute cardiac events or procedures that may reduce LVEF, e.g. as defined in exclusion criterion 6, qualifying cardiac imaging assessment at least 12 weeks following the procedure/event is required.
Elevated NT-pro BNP levels.
Both ambulatory and hospitalised patients may be enrolled and randomised. Patients currently hospitalised for HF, must be off intravenous HF medications for at least 24 before randomisation.
Further details regarding inclusion criteria 4-6 may apply.
Receiving therapy with an SGLT2 inhibitor within 4 weeks prior to randomisation or previous intolerance to an SGLT2 inhibitor.
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D).
eGFR <25 mL/min/1.73 m2 (CKD-EPI formula) at Visit 1.
Systolic blood pressure (BP) <95 mmHg on 2 consecutive measurements at 5-minute intervals, at Visit 1 or at Visit 2.
Systolic BPâ‰¥160 mmHg if not on treatment with â‰¥3 blood pressure lowering medications or â‰¥180 mmHg irrespective of treatments, on 2 consecutive measurements at 5-minute intervals, at Visit 1 or at Visit 2.
MI, unstable angina, coronary revascularization (percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)), ablation of atrial flutter/fibrillation, valve repair/replacement within 12 weeks prior to enrolment. Before enrolment, these patients must have their qualifying echocardiography and/or cardiac MRI examination at least 12 weeks after the event.
Planned coronary revascularization, ablation of atrial flutter/fibrillation and valve repair/replacement.
Stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) within 12 weeks prior to enrolment.
Probable alternative or concomitant diagnoses which in the opinion of the investigator could account for the patient's HF symptoms and signs (e.g. anaemia, hypothyroidism).
Body mass index >50 kg/m2.
