  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of initiating LCZ696 in heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction (HF-rEF) using conservative (reaching target dose over 6 weeks) and condensed (reaching target dose over 3 weeks) up-titration regimens.

  • Percentage of patients with systolic blood pressure < 95 mmHg [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Percentage of patients with abnormal serum creatinine and doubling of serum creatinine [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Percentage of patients with Serum potassium > 5.5 mmol/l and ≥ 6.0 mmol/l [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
