Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Ranolazine
At enrollment, patients will be randomized to ranolazine or placebo. In the active drug arm each patient will be started on a 500 mg twice a day dose for one week with subsequent increase to 1000 mg twice a day at end of first week. For patients on anti-arrhythmic therapy at the time of randomization, their ECG will be checked at end of first week on 500 mg dose and again at end of second week on 1000 mg dose. For patients with CrCl <60ml/min prior to randomization, their CrCl will be checked again at 2 weeks and study drug discontinued if <30ml/min. For patients with CrCl <60ml/min at 2 weeks, their CrCl will be checked again at 4 weeks and study drug discontinued if <30ml/min.
Drug: Ranolazine
At enrollment, patients will be randomized to ranolazine or placebo. In the active drug arm each patient will be started on a 500 mg twice a day dose for one week with subsequent increase to 1000 mg twice a day at beginning of second week.
Other Name: Ranexa
Placebo Comparator: Placebo Drug: Ranolazine
At enrollment, patients will be randomized to ranolazine or placebo. In the active drug arm each patient will be started on a 500 mg twice a day dose for one week with subsequent increase to 1000 mg twice a day at beginning of second week.
Other Name: Ranexa

Detailed Description:

There are limited treatment options for patients at high risk of ventricular arrhythmic events. Beta-blockers alone do not provide enough protection, sotalol has limited effectiveness, and amiodarone although effective in some groups of patients is used infrequently due to its side effects and limitations of a long-term use. Ischemia and cardiomyopathies are associated with a sodium overload of myocardial cells. Late sodium current plays a pivotal role in this process. Sodium overload leads to calcium overload of myocardial cells with consequent increased vulnerability of myocardium to ventricular tachyarrhythmias as well as increased impairment of diastolic relaxation of myocardium thereby augmenting the risk of ischemia and myocardial damage.

Ranolazine is a novel drug with anti-ischemic and antiarrhythmic properties that uniquely blocks late sodium current, decreases intracellular calcium overload, and improves diastolic relaxation of the ventricles. The antiischemic and antiarrhythmic properties of ranolazine might decrease the likelihood of arrhythmic events and improve the clinical course of patients with ventricular arrhythmias.

We designed a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial enrolling 1,440 high-risk ICD patients who will be treated with ranolazine or placebo in addition to optimal medical therapy to test the hypothesis that late sodium current blockade contributes to significant reduction in the risk of arrhythmic events or death in high-risk ICD/CRT-D patients.


Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

1,440 high-risk patients with ischemic/nonischemic cardiomyopathy who receive their ICDs as standard of care for primary or secondary prevention of mortality following approved indications for ICD therapy. High-risk patients will be defined as:

Secondary Prevention Patients Subjects with ischemic or nonischemic cardiomyopathy, qualified for or with existing ICD (or CRT-D) after documented VT/VF or cardiac arrest (secondary prevention of mortality). Secondary prevention subjects with existing implants are eligible regardless of when the implant was received (subjects could be recruited from outpatient clinics or from inpatient activity including during re-implant or other procedures).

Primary Prevention Patients

  1. Patients with primary prevention indications for ischemic or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy with EF≤35%, with existing devices (ICD/CRT-D), regardless of when the device was implanted, who have experienced at least ONE episode of VT/VF appropriately treated with ICD therapy (ATP or shock) or had untreated NSVT lasting at least 10 beats with heart rate of at least 170 bpm, documented by electrogram of their implanted device.
  2. Patients with ischemic or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy with EF≤35%, who have been implanted within the last 2 years (initial ICD/CRT-D implants, including upgrades from pacemakers) who have NOT experienced VT/VF treated with ICD therapy (ATP or shock), AND who have ONE of the following additional criteria: BUN≥26 mg/dl or QRS>120ms or Atrial Fibrillation or NSVT documented by ECG/Holter or >500 Ventricular Premature Beats (VPBs)documented in a 24-hour Holter.

  • Patient receiving first device with enzyme-positive myocardial infarction with the past 3 calendar months prior to date consent obtained
  • Patient receiving first device with angiographic evidence of coronary disease who are candidates for coronary revascularization and are likely to undergo coronary artery bypass graft surgery or percutaneous coronary intervention in the foreseeable future
  • Patient in NYHA Class IV
  • Patients receiving prophylactic ablation of ventricular substrate
  • Patients with preexisting QTc prolongation >550ms
  • Patients on strong CYP3A inhibitors (including ketoconazole, itraconazole, clarithromycin, nefazodone, nelfinavir, ritonavir, indinavir and saquinavir and moderate CYP3A inhibitors, including, diltiazem, verapamil, aprepitant, erythromycin, fluconazole and grapefruit juice or grapefruit-containing products.
  • Patients on CYP3A inducers such as rifampin, rifabutin, rifapentine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, carbamazepine and St.John's wort
  • Patients with inherited arrhythmia disorders such as Brugada's, ARVD, LQTS or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Patient who is pregnant or plans to become pregnant during the course of the trial (patients at child bearing age who use prescribed pharmaceutical contraceptives could be enrolled)
  • Patient with irreversible brain damage from preexisting cerebral disease
  • Patient with presence of any disease, other than the patient's cardiac disease, associated with a reduced likelihood of survival for the duration of the trial, e.g., cancer, uremia, liver failure, etc.
  • Patient with chronic renal disease with creatinine >2.5 mg/dl or creatinine clearance <30 ml/min
  • Patient participating in any other clinical trial
  • Patient unwilling or unable to cooperate with the protocol
  • Patient who lives at such a distance from the clinic that travel for follow-up visits would be unusually difficult
  • Patient who does not anticipate being a resident of the area for the scheduled duration of the trial
  • Patients who are decisionally impaired adults, those of questionable capacity, and those who cannot consent for themselves will not be recruited for this study.
  • Patient unwilling to sign the consent for participation
