Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to first event of cardiovascular mortality,re-hospitalization or extended initial hospital stay due to diagnosis of heart failure,sustained ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation,ejection fraction ≤40% or BNP above age adjusted cut off [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to cardiovascular mortality [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to diagnosis of heart failure [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to first and each subsequent episode (after an event free interval of ≥ 48 hours) of sustained ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to first recorded ejection fraction of ≤ 40% (recorded 1 month or later post-randomization). [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to BNP >200 pg/ml or NT-proBNP >450, >900 or >1800 pg/ml for ages <50 years, 50-75 years and >75 years, respectively (recorded 1 month or later post-randomization). [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to decision to provide an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to second or subsequent non-fatal myocardial infarction. [ Time Frame: 0-`23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • QRS duration at 6 months post-randomization. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Left atrial diameter (recorded on each occasion an echocardiogram is conducted). [ Time Frame: 0-23 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in serum levels of biomarkers at 6 months post-randomization. Blood samples for biomarkers will be stored and analyzed post completion of the study. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
