  Purpose

The main purpose of the study is to test whether a possible new drug (called PG-116800) can prevent some of the damage to heart muscle in patients who have had a heart attack. The study will also supply information regarding possible uses of this compound in cardiovascular disease.

Detailed Description:

Heart attacks cause damage to heart muscle that can weaken the heart and lead to changes in the shape and pumping ability of the heart. These changes can lead to heart failure. An enzyme called metalloproteinase (MMP) plays a role in this damage.

The main purpose of the study is to test whether a possible new drug (called PG-116800) that interferes with the MMP enzyme can prevent some of the damage to heart muscle in patients who have had a heart attack. The study will also supply information regarding possible uses of this compound in cardiovascular disease.

This is a Phase II "proof-of-concept" study; that is, it is a first attempt to treat sick people with the drug to see if it works.

The study is interventional since we will be using a drug to interfere with the heart tissue damage that follows a heart attack.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion:

  • Be at least 18 years of age but not older than 80 years of age at screening;
  • Be diagnosed with a heart attack based on electrocardiogram (ECG) and cardiac enzymes criteria;
  • The qualifying heart attack has to be a first heart attack;
  • The qualifying heart attack has to result in a left ventricular ejection fraction (a measure of the working efficiency of the heart) between 15% and 40%.

Exclusion:
