05:18 EDTNVSNovartis reports LCZ696 significantly reduced cardiovascular deaths
New data revealing the reduction in cardiovascular, or CV, deaths with Novartis' LCZ696 in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, or HF-REF, will be presented at the European Society of Cardiology, or ESC, Congress 2014. The 8,442 patient study, PARADIGM-HF, was specifically designed to see if LCZ696 could increase survival over and above what can be achieved with ACE-inhibitor enalapril in addition to current best treatment in HF-REF patients. In March the Data Monitoring Committee overseeing the study confirmed those given LCZ696 were significantly less likely to die from CV causes, leading to the trial being closed early. LCZ696 significantly reduced cardiovascular deaths in head to head study against enalapril, in addition to current best treatment, in patients with HF-REF. PARADIGM-HF is the largest heart failure study ever conducted and was stopped early in March due to compelling efficacy. LCZ696 was recently granted FDA Fast Track status and rolling submission expected to be complete by end of year.
