The JIKEI HEART Study has been designed to investigate whether concomitant treatment with valsartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), in addition to conventional treatment, will improve the prognosis of 3000 Japanese patients with cardiovascular diseases.

Condition Intervention Phase
Hypertension Ischemic Heart Disease Congestive Heart Failure Drug: valsartan Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional

Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by Jikei University School of Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • stroke
  • new or recurrent transient ischemic attack
  • new or recurrent acute myocardial infarction
  • new occurrence or exacerbation of heart failure
  • new occurrence or exacerbation angina pectoris
  • dissecting aneurysm of the aorta
  • lower limb arterial obstruction
  • transition to dialysis
  • doubling of plasma creatinine (Cr) levels

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • death from any cause
  • left ventricular hypertrophy
  • changes in ECG
  • proteinuria
  • B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP)
  • heart failure symptoms
  • heart failure syndrome (edema, rales on auscultation)
  • blood pressure and heart rate

Estimated Enrollment: 3000
Study Start Date: January 2002
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2005
Detailed Description:
Several recent clinical trials have demonstrated that angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) have cardiovascular as well as renal protective effects. However, it is a problem that the number of Asian patients is very little in these trials. The researchers examine the treatment meaning by ARB about the prognosis of the patient who amalgamates either among high blood pressure, the ischemic heart disease, and congestive heart failures.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 79 Years   (Adult, Senior)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:
