Heart Failure Understanding

Heart Failure: Overview

Heart failure (HF) is a syndrome caused by structural and functional defects in myocardium resulting in impairment of ventricular filling or the ejection of blood. The most common cause for HF is reduced left ventricular myocardial function. Heart failure can severely decrease the functional capacity of a patient and increase mortality risk. It is imperative to diagnose and effectively treat the disease to prevent recurrent hospitalizations, improve quality of life, and enhance patient outcomes. The treatment of heart failure requires a multifaceted approach involving patient education, optimal medical regimen to improve cardiac contractility, and prevention/limitation of exacerbations. The most important consideration when categorizing heart failure is whether left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is preserved or reduced (less than 50 percent). A reduced LVEF in systolic heart failure is a powerful predictor of mortality. The common symptoms of congestive heart failure include fatigue, dyspnea, swollen ankles, and exercise intolerance, or symptoms that relate to the underlying cause. Patients with heart failure present with a variety of symptoms, most of which are non-specific.

The three-year collaboration extension comprises an upfront payment, funding for research, payments on meeting development milestones and tiered royalty payments on revenues in the future.
  • In January 2021, Lexicon Pharmaceuticals received feedback from the FDA that the results of the SOLOIST and SCORED studies can support the submission of an application for regulatory approval for an indication to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death, hospitalization for heart failure, and urgent visits for heart failure in adult patients with type 2 diabetes with either worsening heart failure or additional risk factors for heart failure.
  • In March 2022, BioCardia, Inc., announced the designation of a new reimbursement code for the CardiAMP Cell Therapy procedure to transplant autologous bone marrow cells to treat heart failure from the U.S. Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
  • In February 2022, BioCardia, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had granted Breakthrough Device Designation for the CardiAMP Cell Therapy System for the treatment of heart failure.  It is believed to be the first cardiac cell therapy to receive FDA Breakthrough Device status.

Heart Failure Emerging Drug Chapters

This segment of the Heart Failure report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Heart Failure Emerging Drugs


Tirzepatide: Eli Lilly and Company 

Tirzepatide is a once-weekly dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist that integrates the actions of both incretins into a single novel molecule. GIP is a hormone that may complement the effects of GLP-1. In preclinical models, GIP has been shown to decrease food intake and increase energy expenditure therefore resulting in weight reductions, and when combined with a GLP-1 receptor agonist, may result in greater effects on glucose and body weight. Tirzepatide is in phase 3 development for chronic weight management and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). It is also being studied as a potential treatment for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Both the FDA and EMA have accepted Eli Lilly's marketing approval applications for its type 2 diabetes treatment, tirzepatide.


Finerenone (BAY94-8862): Bayer 

Finerenone (BAY 94-8862) is an investigational novel, non-steroidal, selective mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist (MRA) that has been shown to block the harmful effects of the overactivated mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) system. MR overactivation is a major driver of heart and kidney damage. Current steroidal MRAs on the market have proven to be effective in reducing cardiovascular mortality in patients suffering from heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). However, they are often underutilized due to the incidence of hyperkalemia, renal dysfunction, and anti-androgenic/ progestogenic side effects.


CardiAMP Cell Therapy: BioCardia

CardiAMP Cell Therapy uses a patient’s own (autologous) bone marrow cells delivered to the heart in a minimally invasive, catheter-based procedure to potentially stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The CardiAMP Cell Therapy Heart Failure Trial is the first multicenter clinical trial of an autologous cell therapy to prospectively screen for cell therapeutic potency in order to improve patient outcomes.  CardiAMP Cell Therapy incorporates three proprietary elements not previously utilized in investigational cardiac cell therapy, which the company believes improves the probability of success of the treatment: a pre-procedural diagnostic for patient selection, a high target dosage of cells, and a proprietary delivery system that has been shown to be safer than other intramyocardial delivery systems and more successful for enhancing cell retention.


Rexlemestrocel-L (Revascor): Mesoblast 

Revascor consists of 150 million mesenchymal precursor cells (MPCs) administered by direct injection into the heart muscle in patients suffering from CHF and progressive loss of heart function. MPCs release a range of factors when triggered by specific receptor-ligand interactions within damaged tissue. Based on preclinical data, it is believed that these factors induce functional cardiac recovery by simultaneous activation of multiple pathways, including induction of endogenous vascular network formation, reduction in harmful inflammation, reduction in cardiac scarring and fibrosis, and regeneration of heart muscle through activation of tissue precursors.


BMS-986231: Bristol-Myers Squibb

Cimlanod (development codes CXL-1427 and BMS-986231) is an experimental drug for the treatment of acute decompensated heart failure. HNO gas (nitroxyl) is a chemical sibling of nitric oxide. Although nitric oxide and HNO appear to be closely related chemically, the physiological effects and biologic mechanisms of HNO and nitric oxide action are distinct. The biologic effects of HNO are mediated by direct post-translational modification of thiol residues in target proteins, including SERCA2a, phospholamban, the ryanodine receptor, and myofilament proteins in cardiomyocytes. In vitro, HNO increases the efficiency of calcium cycling and improves myofilament calcium sensitivity, which enhances myocardial contraction and relaxation. HNO also mediates peripheral vasodilation through endothelial soluble guanylate cyclase. HNO does not induce tachyphylaxis in peripheral vessels, unlike nitric oxide.


Elamipretide: Stealth BioTherapeutics

Elamipretide (MTP-131, Bendavia) is a novel tetra-peptide that targets mitochondrial dysfunction in energydepleted myocytes. Elamipretide crosses the outer membrane of the mitochondria and associates itself with cardiolipin, which is a phospholipid expressed only in the inner membrane of mitochondria. Cardiolipin has an integral role in mitochondrial stability and organization of respiratory complexes into super complexes for oxidative phosphorylation.Thus, elamipretide helps to enhance ATP synthesis in multiple organs of the body. Elamipretide has been shown to improve left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), LV end diastolic pressure, cardiac hypertrophy, myocardial fibrosis, and myocardial ATP synthesis in both animal models and humans.


FA relaxin: Bristol Myers Squibb

BMS-986259 is a next-generation version of Relaxin that is enabled with our technology and currently in Phase 1 clinical trials for ADHF. Relaxin, a peptide hormone, has been reported to reduce fibrosis in the multiple organs and to exert cardioprotective effects in preclinical studies. However, the therapeutic potential of Relaxin has been partially limited by its short half-life in humans. BMS-986259 has exhibited a prolonged half-life and therefore has the potential to enhance clinical benefit as a novel therapeutic for ADHF.
