Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: From initial exposure to 30 days following exposure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety is measured by assessment of multiple parameters including standard laboratory safety, changes in blood pressure and heart rate, changes in electrocardiogram, monitoring of heart rhythm via holter monitor, measurement of cardiac safety biomarkers such as plasma troponin as well as treatment emergent adverse events


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hemodynamic Effects as Measured by Impedance Cardiography and Echocardiography [ Time Frame: before during and following the infusion of study medicaltion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Standard measurement of impedance cardiography parameters will be made non invasively in all study cohorts. Echocardiography will be evaluated in parallel with Impedance cardiography in the Echo Cohorts

  • Plasma and Urinary Pharmacokinetics [ Time Frame: From start of infusion until 18 hours post infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of plasma samples and urine collections for CXL-1020 and metabolites. Samples are collected approximately 19 times from a intravenous catheter, before during and following infusion. In addition 4 collections of all freely voided urine will be collected from before infusion until 18 hours following infusion.

Active Comparator: Echo Cohort B CXL-1020
CXL-1020 administered at a fixed rate for the initial 2 hours and at a higher fixed rate for the last 2 hours of a 4 hour infusion at doses which were studied in Cohort 1 or Cohort 2 and expected to be well tolerated and have hemodynamic effects
Drug: CXL-1020 Doses for Echo Cohort B
A 2 hour dose level of CXL-1020 which was studied in Cohort 1 or 2 which was demonstrated to be safe and well tolerated and have some anticipated hemodynamic effect followed by another higher 2 hour dose level of CXL-1020 which was studied in Cohort 1 or 2 which was demonstrated to be safe and well tolerated and have some anticipated hemodynamic effect

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase I/IIa Dose-Escalation, First exposure in Humans, Study Evaluating the Safety and Tolerability of CXL-1020 and Specific Effects on Electrocardiographic and Non-Invasive Hemodynamic Parameters in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure. 4 weekly four-hour treatments involving ascending dosages of CXL-1020 with a randomly interspersed placebo dose within two or more unique patient cohorts. Separate echocardiography cohorts (Echo Cohort A and Echo Cohort B) will evaluate a sustained dose over 4 hours (ECHO A), and an ascending two dose level, 4-hour infusion (2 hours each) (ECHO B), in individual patients. Echo Cohort dosages will be determined from responses observed in previous cohort exposures.
