Brief Summary:

This is a Phase 1b randomized, double-blinded, single-center safety and pharmacodynamics study of sequential cohort, dose-escalating, repeat-dosing of dapansutrile or placebo (4:1 ratio) in subjects with stable systolic heart failure (HF) with LVEF≤40% symptomatic for NYHA functional classification II-III who show signs of systemic inflammation (high sensitivity plasma C reactive protein [hsCRP] > 2 mg/L). A total of 20 subjects will be enrolled in 2 sequential cohorts by randomized allocation (8 active and 2 placebo within each cohort). Progression of dose escalation will occur following the Day 14 visit of the last subject in the first cohort.

Subjects will be screened and evaluated twice for eligibility: 1) at the time of Screening (up to 28 days prior to enrollment); and 2) at the Baseline visit, prior to randomization. Following enrollment, Baseline assessments will be conducted and the first dose of investigational product (either dapansutrile capsules or placebo capsules) will be administered at the clinical site upon completion of all assessment and collection of baseline parameters. Subjects will then self-administer investigational product once or twice daily, depending on cohort, for up to fourteen (14) consecutive days beginning at the Baseline visit and continuing through the planned Day 14 visit. Subjects will return to the study clinic on Days 4, 8, 14 and 28 for follow-up visits. Additionally, subjects will be contacted for telephone follow-up on Day 42.

Intervention Model Description: Subjects will be assigned to receive either dapansutrile capsules or placebo capsules in a 4:1 ratio within each Cohort.
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Masking Description: This is a randomized, blinded, placebo-controlled study. Treatment allocation (to active or placebo treatment groups) will be blinded to all study participants, personnel, and investigators. Only the randomization statistician, drug labeling personnel and the medical monitor will be unblinded to the treatment assignment (in the event of an emergency, a scratch off label can be removed unmasking the treatment assignment to the PI and Medical Monitor).
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events [ Time Frame: Screening through Day 42 follow-up ]
    Adverse events experienced by the patient will be recorded.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cardiopulmonary exercise test [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Physician-supervised maximal aerobic exercise test will be administered using a metabolic cart that is interfaced with a motorized treadmill. Change in peak oxygen consumption in each group will be assessed.

  2. Transthoracic Doppler ECG - Left Ventricle Ejection Fraction [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in left ventricular ejection fraction will be analyzed.

  3. Transthoracic Doppler ECG - Left Ventricular Filling Pressure [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in estimated left ventricular filling pressure, measured as ratio of early diastolic transmitral pulsed wave Doppler flow velocity (E) to tissue Doppler velocity of the mitral annulus (e') will be analyzed.

  4. Bioimpedance analysis [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Bioimpedance is a non-invasive, quick and safe technique that allows to estimate body composition compartments (total body water, intracellular water, extracellular water, fat mass, fat-free mass, lean mass). Change in total body water will be assessed.

  5. Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire - Clinical Summary Score [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Change in KCCQ score, a 23-item, self-administered instrument that independently measures a patient's perception of their health status, which includes heart failure symptoms. This scale is quantified in six domains: physical function, symptoms (frequency, severity and recent change), social function, self-efficacy and knowledge, and quality of life. Each domain is scored on a 0-100 scale with 100 being better and 0 being worse. Two summary scores are calculated: the Clinical Summary Score (mean of symptom and physical function domain scores) and the Overall Summary Score (mean of the symptom, physical function, social limitations and quality of life scores).

  6. Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire - Overall Summary Score [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Change in KCCQ score, a 23-item, self-administered instrument that independently measures a patient's perception of their health status, which includes heart failure symptoms. This scale is quantified in six domains: physical function, symptoms (frequency, severity and recent change), social function, self-efficacy and knowledge, and quality of life. Each domain is scored on a 0-100 scale with 100 being better and 0 being worse. Two summary scores are calculated: the Clinical Summary Score (mean of symptom and physical function domain scores) and the Overall Summary Score (mean of the symptom, physical function, social limitations and quality of life scores).

  7. Duke Activity Status Index [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Change in Duke Activity Status Index, a self-administered questionnaire that measures a patient's functional capacity. The index consists of 12 "yes or no" questions, which are summed and used to calculate VO2peak and METS.

  8. Vital signs - Pulse [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in pulse will be analyzed.

  9. Vital signs - Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in systolic and diastolic blood pressure will be analyzed.

  10. Vital signs - Temperature [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in body temperature will be analyzed.

  11. Vital signs - Respiratory Rate [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in respiratory rate will be analyzed.

  12. Safety Laboratory Measurements - Chemistry [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in blood chemistry will be analyzed.

  13. Safety Laboratory Measurements - Hematology [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Changes in complete blood count will be analyzed.

  14. Physical Examination [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    A full or targeted physical examination of the patient's major body systems

  15. 12-lead electrocardiogram [ Time Frame: Day 8 ]
    Electrodes will be placed on the patient to obtain a recording of the electrical activity of the heart.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Pharmacokinetics [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre and post dose), Day 4, Day 8, Day 14 and Day 28 ]
    Blood sample for determination of dapansutrile blood concentrations.

  2. Pharmacodynamics / Biomarkers [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre and post dose), Day 4, Day 8, Day 14 and Day 28 ]
    Blood sample for determination of levels of inflammatory biomarkers
