Brief Summary:
The purpose of this clinical trial is to compare the effects of study medicine (Ponsegromab/PF-06946860) with a placebo (A pill that looks like the study medicine but does not contain the active medicine) to find out if the study medicine is better than the placebo (a pill that looks like the study medicine but does not contain the active medicine) for treatment of symptoms related to heart failure. Participants will not know which treatment group they are assigned to. All participants in this study will receive the study medicine or placebo by shots under the skin every four weeks. People may be able to participate in this study if they have the heart failure. Participants will take part in this study for about 9 months. During this time participants will visit the study clinic once a month.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure Drug: Ponsegromab low dose Drug: Ponsegromab medium dose Drug: ponsegromab high dose Other: Matched placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The primary purpose of this study is to assess the effect of repeated subcutaneous administration of ponsegromab (PF-06946860) on frequency, severity, and burden of symptoms as well as physical limitations in participants with heart failure and elevated circulating GDF-15 concentrations. The study will also assess the safety, tolerability, PK, PD, and immunogenicity of ponsegromab.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 416 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: In this study, ponsegromab will be administered at low, medium and high doses every 4 weeks by subcutaneous injections for a total of 6 doses. Participants will be randomized to 1 of the 3 doses of ponsegromab or placebo.
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: Investigators, sponsor, participants and other site staff will be blinded to participants' assigned study intervention, including the site staff assigned to prepare and administer the study intervention. Pharmacists and site personnel will be blinded to study intervention versus placebo within each study arm.
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: A PHASE 2, DOUBLE-BLIND, RANDOMIZED, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED, 4-ARM STUDY TO INVESTIGATE SYMPTOMS, FUNCTION, HEALTH-RELATED QUALITY OF LIFE AND SAFETY WITH REPEATED SUBCUTANEOUS ADMINISTRATION OF PONSEGROMAB VERSUS PLACEBO IN ADULT PARTICIPANTS WITH HEART FAILURE
Actual Study Start Date : September 26, 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 9, 2024
Estimated Study Completion Date : November 18, 2024
