Brief Summary:
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most frequent genetic cardiac disease characterized by an asymmetric hypertrophic. In two third of patients, an obstruction to blood ejection is observed within the left ventricle which is named left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO). This phenomenon can occur at rest or during exercise and is associated with symptoms such as dyspnea, dizziness or chest pain that can significantly limit day life adaptation. To now, medical or interventional treatments such as betablocacker, calcium blockers or septal alcoholisation or surgery present with a limited efficiency. Recent studies from investigators group revealed new concepts about the role of venous return to the LVOTO. Therefore the investigators hypothesis that BX1514M generating a venous vascular constriction, could improve symptoms of HCM patients by reducing LVOTO.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline at day 15 of covered distance during the 6 minutes walk distance test (6MWT) [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
    In meters

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Covered distance during the 6 minutes walk distance test (6MWT) [ Time Frame: Day 30 ]
    In meters

  2. Exercise echocardiography with measures of blood pressures in the rest and in the effort [ Time Frame: Day 1, day 15, day 30 ]
