The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of IV SLV320 in acute heart failure patients with renal dysfunction.

Condition Intervention Phase
Acute Decompensated Heart Failure; Renal Dysfunction
Drug: SLV320
Drug: Placebo
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Randomized, Multi-Center, Dose-Finding Study of SLV320, a Selective A1 Adenosine Receptor Antagonist, to Evaluate the Effect on Renal Function and Safety in Subjects Hospitalized With Acute Decompensated Heart Failure and Renal Dysfunction (Reno-Defend 1)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in serum creatinine from baseline to Day 14 [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare four SLV320 doses to placebo on the change in the following variables: Dyspnea (Likert Scale and PDA scale), eGFR (MDRD Formula), Subject Global Clinical Assessment Score, Urine Osmolality, Serum Osmolality [ Time Frame: Up to Day 3 (Dyspnea); Up to Day 4 (Urine Osmolality); Up to Day 60 (eGFR, Subject Global Clinical Assessment Score, Serum Osmolality) ]
  • To compare the effect of four I.V. doses of SLV320 with placebo using the trichotomous endpoint of treatment success, treatment failure, or no change [ Time Frame: Up to Day 14 ]
  • To compare the effect of four I.V. doses of SLV320 with placebo on top of diuretic use [ Time Frame: Up to Day 3 ]
  • To compare the effect of four I.V. doses of SLV320 with placebo using a composite endpoint of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular hospitalization or hospitalization for worsening renal function, in time to event and frequency [ Time Frame: Up to Day 180 ]
  • To determine the pharmacokinetic profile of I.V. SLV320 [ Time Frame: Up to Day 3 ]

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of IV SLV320 in acute heart failure patients with renal dysfunction.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria Renal dysfunction defined as estimated eGFR of 20-80 mL/min; history of systolic or diastolic chronic heart failure of at least 14 days duration for which loop diuretic therapy has been prescribed; clinical evidence for volume overload; BNP ≥ 500 pg/mL or NT-pro-BNP > 2000 pg/mL; hospitalization.

Exclusion Criteria Have low output syndrome, defined as having the need for treatment with I.V. inotropes or vasopressors; Need mechanical ventilation; Have significant stenotic valvular disease (severe aortic or mitral stenosis); Have myocardial infarction or hemodynamically destabilizing significant arrythmias (ventricular tachycardia, bradyarrythmias with slow ventricular rate [<45 bpm] or atrial fibrillation/flutter with a rapid ventricular response of >120 bpm), or electrocardiographic evidence of 2nd degree heart block (Mobitz Type II) or 3rd degree AV-block in the absence of a pacemaker, within 30 days of screening; Have acute myocarditis or hypertrophic obstructive, restrictive, or constrictive cardiomyopathy
