The VICTORIA study is a randomized parallel-group, placebo-controlled, double-blind, event-driven, multi-center pivotal phase III clinical outcome trial of efficacy and safety of the oral sGC simulator Vericiguat in subjects with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).
The VICTORIA trial was presented as a Late-Breaking Clinical Trial on March 28, 2020 at the virtual American College of Cardiology’s 69th Annual Scientific Session Together With World Congress of Cardiology (ACC.20/WCC).
