Clinical Study:

New Medicines That May Help Treat Congestive Heart Failure


Congestive heart failure (CHF) occurs when the heart is too weak to pump blood effectively. This can result in shortness of breath, severe fatigue, swelling in the legs or swelling in the abdomen. Medicines can help congestive heart failure, but there is always a need for new and better medicines.

About the Clinical Study

Research studies of newer medicines to treat CHF are ongoing. These studies look at the effect of the heart on the brain and assess whether or not diabetes medicines can help heart failure, even in people who are not diabetic.


To qualify, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have a history of heart failure for at least 3 months
  • Have a high level of a blood test that measures heart failure
  • Be on a stable medicine regimen for at least 1 month
