Cardioxyl Pharmaceuticals Initiates Dose-Defining Phase IIa Study of Its Lead Candidate, CXL-1020, in Heart Failure Patients
Date:8/26/2010

reatment OptionsADHF is the leading diagnosis at the time of discharge from U.S. hospitals and the most common cause of hospitalization for patients over 65 years of age.(i) Well over $39 billion was spent in the U.S. in 2009 for the medical care of heart failure patients. ADHF is a deadly condition, with in-hospital mortality rates of two to six percent and six-month readmission rates as high as 30 to 60 percent.  Episodes of ADHF are marked by a severe reduction of cardiac function that typically results in fluid accumulation in the lungs (pulmonary edema) and consequent severe shortness of breath.  There were 1.1 million hospitalizations for acute heart failure in the U.S. in 2006.  Among patients hospitalized with ADHF, the 30-day mortality rate is approximately 11 percent and the one-year mortality rate is 34 percent.  These poor outcomes indicate the clear need for better therapies to treat this patient population.

Despite the severity of the condition, the treatment options available for patients with ADHF remain limited.  Current first-line treatments target the removal of excess fluid (diuresis) and preload and afterload reduction (vasodilation).  In order to improve the hemodynamic profile of the heart and increase cardiac contractility, a physician may also administer an intravenous inotropic agent such as dobutamine (beta-adrenergic agonist) or milrinone (PDE3-inhibitor).  Administration of dobutamine or milrinone often requires very close monitoring in the hospital's cardiac or intensive care unit setting due to the life-threatening safety risks associated with these drugs, including ventricular/atrial arrhythmias, hypotension, sudden cardiac death, and other potential adverse long term outcomes.(ii),(iii)
