Heart Attack clinical trials at UCSF

3 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

A heart attack happens when blood flow to the heart is blocked. UCSF is conducting a study comparing in-person and online heart exercise programs. This trial is for people with certain heart conditions.

  • MCNAIR Study: coMparative effeCtiveness of iN-person and teleheAlth cardIac Rehabilitation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Cardiac rehabilitation is a medically recommended program for patients with certain heart conditions. It includes exercise training, health education, and counseling. Unfortunately, many patients do not participate in cardiac rehabilitation. Some find it challenging to attend the in-person sessions. This study aims to compare two methods of delivering cardiac rehabilitation: in-person and through telehealth. The investigators want to know if the effects of these two programs are alike and if certain individuals benefit more from one program over the other.

  • Abbott i-STAT High Sensitivity Troponin I Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The goal of this observational multi-center study is to evaluate the clinical performance of the i-STAT hs-TnI test (i-STAT High Sensitivity Troponin I) using the investigational i-STAT hs-TnI cartridge for the proposed intended use as an aid in the diagnosis and treatment of myocardial infarction (MI). The cartridge measures cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in whole blood or plasma samples using the i-STAT 1 Analyzer or i-STAT Alinity Instrument. Subjects presenting to the emergency department (ED) with chest discomfort or equivalent ischemic symptoms suggestive of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) who are enrolled in this study will be asked to provide blood samples for testing.
