PROACT-2 NSTEMIChart Review2010N/A
PROACT-3NSTEMIPhase 42011 - 2013Utilizing the platform of pre-hospital STEMI research and clinical experience developed over the past decade; we now intend to investigate how best to achieve timely diagnosis and risk stratification of patients that present to pre-hospital emergency medical services with symptoms suspicious for acute NSTEMI through utilization of systematic clinical assessment, pre-hospital 12 lead electrocardiogram and point of care measurement of biomarkers. Additionally, where deemed appropriate these patients will be enrolled in a clinical Chest Pain Protocol utilizing the pre-hospital biomarkers. We hypothesize that establishing a pre-hospital diagnosis in this condition may facilitate efficient triage and -as appropriate- in-hospital disposition. Additionally, the enhanced pre-hospital assessment of this population will facilitate appropriate timely disposition of those patients not found to have acute cardiovascular disease. These processes will facilitate decanting the frequently overcrowded and under resources Emergency Departments.NCT01634425

WATCHHeart FailurePhase 31998 - 2004Whether patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) should be anticoagulated is one of the oldest unresolved questions in cardiovascular therapeutics. Some authorities do not recommend anticoagulation for CHF patients in sinus rhythm, others recommend anticoagulation in patients with primary cardiomyopathy, and still others consider it more appropriate in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). This absence of consensus reflects the lack of evidence in this area and different outlooks on the objectives of such therapy (e.g., prevention of arterial emboli or reduction in vascular events).NCT00007683
WEST Myocardial InfarctionPhase 2, Phase 32003 - 2005In the setting of acute myocardial infarction (heart attacks), the principle objective of the WEST Study is to compare the impact on clinical outcomes of 3 different treatment strategies.

The second strategy is identical medical (drug) therapy as the first group combined with early heart catheterization (within 24 hours) for angiography and if required, intervention. The third treatment strategy is direct admission (within 3 hrs) to the heart catheterization lab for angioplasty.NCT00121446
