Brief Summary:
This was a multinational, multicenter, randomized, open-label study to confirm and expand the efficacy, safety and tolerability evidence of 48 hours intravenous infusion of serelaxin (30 micrograms/kg/day) when added to Standard of Care (SoC) in patients admitted to hospital for Acute Heart Failure (AHF).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Heart Failure (AHF) Drug: Serelaxin Drug: Standard of Care Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This study was aimed at generating clinical evidence, especially on the short term period (in-hospital and at 30 days) to complement existing and future serelaxin data sets in Acute Heart Failure (AHF).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Serelaxin + Standard of Care
Serelaxin (30 µg/kg/day) as continuous 48 hour intravenous infusion plus standard of care.
Drug: Serelaxin
30 µg/kg/day IV infusion
Other Name: RLX030

Drug: Standard of Care
This treatment can include but is not limited to intravenous and/or oral diuretics, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors/angiotensin receptor antagonists, beta blockers and aldosterone receptor antagonists, etc.

Standard of Care (SOC)
All patients were required to receive standard of care background heart failure (HF) management during the study, according to local guidelines/international standards. This treatment can include but is not limited to intravenous and/or oral diuretics, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors/angiotensin receptor antagonists, beta blockers and aldosterone receptor antagonists, etc.
Drug: Standard of Care
This treatment can include but is not limited to intravenous and/or oral diuretics, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors/angiotensin receptor antagonists, beta blockers and aldosterone receptor antagonists, etc.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With Worsening Heart Failure (WHF) / All Cause of Deaths Through Day 5 [ Time Frame: 5 days ]
    In-hospital WHF through Day 5 post-randomization included worsening signs and/or symptoms of heart failure that required an intensification of intravenous therapy for heart failure or mechanical ventilation, renal or circulatory support. A central event adjudication committee was appointed to oversee the WHF primary endpoint adjudication.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With In-hospital Worsening Heart Failure/All-Cause Death/Readmission for Heart Failure Through Day 14 [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    WHF/death/readmission for heart failure through Day 14. WHF/deaths through Day 5 were adjudicated and confirmed by the Clinical Endpoint Committee, WHF/deaths after Day 5 through Day 14 and readmission through Day 14 were as reported by the investigators.

  2. Percentage of Participants With Persistent Sign or Symptoms of Heart Failure / Non-Improvement at Any Post Baseline Visit Through Day 5 [ Time Frame: 5 days ]
    Persistent or non-improvement in any signs or symptoms of HF at any post baseline visit up to Day 5.

  3. Percentage of Participants With Renal Deterioration at Any Post Baseline Visit Through Day 14 [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    Renal deterioration is defined as > or = 0.3 mg/dL increase from screening in serum creatinine.

  4. Length of Index Hospital Stay [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
    Length of stay (in hours) is defined as the index hospitalization discharge date and time minus the index hospitalization start date and time.

  5. Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events as Assessment of Safety and Tolerability of Serelaxin in AHF Patients [ Time Frame: Adverse Events (AE): 5 Days / Serious Adverse Events (SAE): 14 days / All cause deaths 30 days ]
  6. Change From Baseline in Health-related Quality of Life Index Value, Assessed by EuroQoL EQ-5D-5L Questionnaire. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 5, Day 14 ]
    EQ-5D-5L is a questionnaire designed to assess health status in adults consisting of 5 dimensions (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, anxiety/depression). The results were converted into a single index value using UK as the reference country for all countries. Range -0.3 (worst possible state) to 1 (best possible state).
