Virtual Care to Improve Heart Failure Outcomes (VITAL-HF) Randomized Controlled Trial
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how safe and effective a remote, digital intervention is that helps clinicians use and optimally adjust heart failure medications, compared to usual care medication use and adjustment, in participants with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction
The Effects of Carperitide on Short and Long-term Prognosis in Patients With Both Cardiac and Renal Failure
Carperitide (alpha-human atrial natriuretic peptide) improves systemic hemodynamics in patients with heart failure through a vasodilatory action, a natriuretic action, and inhibition of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and has been widely-used in Japan. However, a paucity of report is available on the effects of carperitide on short and long-term prognosis in patients with both cardiac and renal failure. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of carperitide therapy on short and long-term prognosis in patients with both cardiac and renal failure, in comparison with standard therapy.
