A Dose-finding Study of OPC-41061 in Treatment of Cardiac Edema (Congestive Heart Failure)
A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Dose Response of OPC-41061 in Congestive Heart Failure Patients With Extracellular Volume Expansion
This drug is being developed to treat cardiac edema. The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the dose response for body weight in seven-day repeated oral administration of OPC-41061 at 15, 30, and 45 mg or placebo in patients with extracellular volume expansion secondary to CHF despite taking furosemide at 40 mg/d or more. This study is being conducted in Japan.
