Sacubitril/Valsartan versus enalapril in nonischemic heart failure in Paradigm-Hf trialJournal: Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine and Cardiology (Vol.5, No. 4)

Background: We compared the angiotensin receptor–neprilysin inhibitor LCZ696 (sacubitril/valsartan) with enalapril in patients who had nonischemic heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction. Methods: In this double-blind trial, we randomly assigned 8442 patients with class II, III, or IV heart failure and an ejection fraction of 40% or less to receive either LCZ696 (at a dose of 200 mg twice daily) or enalapril (at a dose of 10 mg twice daily), in addition to recommended therapy. The primary outcome was a composite of death from cardiovascular causes or hospitalization for heart failure, but the trial was designed to detect a difference in the rates of death from cardiovascular causes.
