ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00565565
First received: October 31, 2007
Last updated: May 5, 2013

  Purpose

This study is to demonstrate the safety and tolerability of a single oral dose of BAY60-4552 in a single dose escalation design. Furthermore, this study examines the changes in hemodynamics after application of the test substance.42 hospitalized stable patients with chronic heart failure will be included. Several measurements will be performed to test how good the drug works and wether there are any unwanted reactions to the drug (e.g. blood tests, ECG, heart rate, blood pressure, adverse events). After a observation period the patient will be discharged from the hospital.
