Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Parallel-group, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind, Multi-center Dose Finding Phase II Trial Exploring the Pharmacodynamic Effects, Safety and Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of Four Dose Regimens of the Oral sGC Stimulator BAY1021189 Over 12 Weeks in Patients With Worsening Heart Failure With Reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF)
