Heart Failure clinical trials at UCSF
19 in progress, 8 open to new patients

  • Cardiac Recovery Through Dietary Support

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a prospective, randomized, wait-list controlled study examining the impact of providing medically appropriate meals to patients discharged from Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital after acute decompensated heart failure. Upon discharge, patients will be randomized to either the intervention or wait list control arm. The intervention is the delivery of medically appropriate meals and groceries to patients' homes in a tapered manner over five months (the equivalent of three meals a day for 60 days, then the equivalent of two meals a day for 30 days, then the equivalent of one meal a day for 60 days) and monthly assessments with a registered dietician (RD). All food and RD assessments are administered via a community partner, Project Open Hand, as a modification of current offerings for clients at Project Open Hand. Subjects randomized into the wait list control arm will receive the food intervention five months after discharge. The study's primary aim is to examine the impact of nutritional support on the Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire scores. In addition, the study aims to examine the impact of nutritional support on healthcare utilization (particularly readmission rates and emergency room utilization), dietary change, medication adherence, and quality of life.

  • EMPagliflozin outcomE tRial in Patients With chrOnic heaRt Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction (EMPEROR-Preserved)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The aim of the study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of empagliflozin versus placebo on top of guideline-directed medical therapy in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction

  • INfluenza Vaccine to Effectively Stop Cardio Thoracic Events and Decompensated Heart Failure

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    INVESTED will test the hypothesis that high dose trivalent influenza vaccine will reduce cardiopulmonary events to a greater extent than standard dose quadrivalent influenza vaccine in high-risk cardiovascular patients with a recent history of myocardial infarction or heart failure. The trial will enroll 9300 participants over one Vanguard (pilot) season and three additional influenza seasons. The primary endpoint will be a composite of all-cause mortality or cardiopulmonary hospitalization.

  • Mechanical Support Measures of Adjustment and QOL

    open to eligible people ages 19 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to develop a measurement system to assess adjustment to mechanical circulatory support (MCS) (also referred to as a ventricular assist device [VAD]) and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with advanced heart failure who receive a VAD. This investigators refer to this measurement system as Mechanical Circulatory Support: Adjustment and Quality of Life (MCS A-QOL).

  • Multiple Cardiac Sensors for the Management of Heart Failure

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The MANAGE-HF study is a multi-center, global, prospective, open label, multi-phase trial intended to evaluate the clinical efficacy of the HeartLogic heart failure diagnostic feature.

  • Prospective ARNI vs ACE Inhibitor Trial to DetermIne Superiority in Reducing Heart Failure Events After MI

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of LCZ696 titrated to a target dose of 200 mg twice daily, compared to ramipril titrated to a target dose of 5 mg twice daily, in addition to conventional post-AMI treatment, in reducing the occurrence of composite endpoint of CV death, HF hospitalization and outpatient HF (time-to-first event analysis) in post-AMI patients with evidence of LV systolic dysfunction and/or pulmonary congestion, with no known prior history of chronic HF..

  • Technology-Based Intervention to Promote Heart Health After Cardiac Rehab (Mobile4Heart)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether using a mobile app increases adherence to a heart healthy prescription after discharge from a cardiac rehab program.

  • The Product Surveillance Registry REVERSE Post Approval Study

    open to all eligible people

    The purpose of the REVERSE Post Approval Study (PAS) is to confirm the benefit observed in the REVERSE and RAFT pivotal studies in "real-world" clinical practice.

  • Dynamic Heart Failure Prediction With Real-time Functional Status Data in the Ambulatory Setting

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Heart failure is the number one cause of hospital readmission in those over 65 years of age and the current standard-of-care of weight self-monitoring is inadequate to predict exacerbation. This project aims to improve the monitoring of heart failure disease progression through the use of real-time, up-to-date data obtained both from a smart phone-based tool and from the electronic health record. The goal is to develop a low-risk, clinically validated method to estimate dynamic heart failure risk to enable the provision of earlier, more effective outpatient interventions that decrease hospitalization.

  • PRODIGY Registry in NYHA Class III Heart Failure Patients

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is an observational, prospective, single arm, multi-center registry to evaluate the Cordella™ Heart Failure System (CHFS) in up to 250 NYHA Class III HF patients .

  • Remote Dielectric Sensing (ReDS) Assisted Diuresis in Acute Decompensated Heart Failure

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This study evaluates the use of a wearable vest capable of non-invasively measuring lung fluid content in hospitalized patients with heart failure

  • Attain Performa™ Left Ventricular (LV) Quadripolar Leads Chronic Performance Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Lead survivability will be summarized.

  • Barostim Neo® - Baroreflex Activation Therapy® for Heart Failure

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this trial is to develop valid scientific evidence for safety and effectiveness of Baroreflex Activation Therapy® with the BAROSTIM NEO® System in subjects with heart failure, defined as New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class III and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤ 35% despite being treated with the appropriate heart failure guideline directed therapy, excluding subjects eligible for or actively receiving Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT).

  • Home Outpatient Monitoring and Engagement to Predict HF Exacerbation

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The HOME PREDICT HF study looks at new ways to predict hospitalizations for heart failure. We will use a set of devices at home and surveys to collect information about patient's health. This study uses the Eureka app, a new study app developed by the University of California, San Francisco. The study is designed to happen remotely, using this application on a patient's smartphone, so that is as convenient as possible to participate.
