Ages Eligible for Study:   45 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • History of coronary artery disease,
  • Stroke
  • Stable heart failure
  • Peripheral vascular disease, or diabetes with at least one other cardiovascular risk factor (hypertension, elevated total cholesterol levels, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, cigarette smoking, or documented microalbuminuria).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Non stabilized or NYHA grade IV heart failure patients
  • Hemodynamically significant primary valvular or outflow tract obstruction (eg. mitral valve stenosis, asymmetric septal hypertrophy, malfunctioning prosthetic valve)
  • Constrictive pericarditis.
  • Complex congenital heart disease.
  • Syncopal episodes presumed to be due to uncontrolled life-threatening arrhythmias (asymptomatic cardiac arrhythmias including ventricular tachycardia are not an exclusion criterion).
  • Planned cardiac surgery or angioplasty within 3 months (patient may be reconsidered for the trial after the procedure).
  • Cor pulmonale.
  • Heart transplant recipient.
  • Significant renal disease defined as:

    • Renal artery stenosis;
    • Creatine clearance <0.6 ml/second or serum creatinine≥ 200 mEq/L (≥2.26 mg/dl)
    • Overt nephropathy: ≥1 plus proteinuria on dipstick or urinary albumin excretion > 200 micrograms/minute (300 mg/24 hrs)
    • Hyperkalemia; K>5.5 mEq/L.
  • Patient is simultaneously taking another experimental drug.
