|Congestive Heart Failure||Drug: Allopurinol Drug: Placebo||Phase 2|
Xanthine oxidase have been reported to improve mechano-energetic coupling in failing hearts. The investigators developed a means to directly measure creatine kinase flux, the major energy reserve of the heart, in the human heart exploiting new magnetic resonance technologies.
The investigators propose to study 10 healthy subjects and up to 25 with heart failure (dilated cardiomyopathy) before and after a single 300mg IV infusion of allopurinol.

- Myocardial Creatine Kinase (CK) Flux Pre Intravenous Allopurinol Infusion [ Time Frame: Onset of imaging acquisition. ]Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) Measurement of Myocardial CK Flux Pre Intravenous Allopurinol Infusion
- Myocardial CK Flux Post Intravenous Allopurinol Infusion. [ Time Frame: acute (within 15 minutes of single infusion) ]The mean rate of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) flux through the creatine kinase reaction in the heart.
- Cardiac PCr/ATP Pre Intravenous Infusion [ Time Frame: Onset of image acquisition. ]The mean ratio of creatine phosphate (PCr) to ATP in the heart. This measure, as a ratio, is unitless.
- Cardiac PCr/ATP Post Intravenous Infusion [ Time Frame: acute (within 15 minutes of single infusion) ]The mean ratio of creatine phosphate (PCr) to ATP in the heart. This measure, as a ratio, is unitless.
