VITALITY-HFpEF

The VITALITY-HFpEF trial (Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of the Oral sGC Stimulator Vericiguat to Improve Physical Functioning in Daily Living Activities of Patients With Heart Failure and Preserved Ejection Fraction) is designed to determine the efficacy and safety of a novel oral soluble guanylate cyclase stimulator, vericiguat, on quality of life and exercise tolerance in heart failure patients with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF)


Presentations

The VITALITY-HFpEF study was presented on June 12, 2020 during HFA Discoveries, an online initiative from the European Society of Cardiology Heart Failure Association.
