You may be eligible to participate in the PERSPECTIVE Study if you:
-Are 60 years of age of older
-Have been diagnosed with chronic heart failure with preserved ejection fraction
-Have shortness of breath, fatigue or swelling of legs, ankles, or feet.
Eligible participants in the PERSPECTIVE clinical research study will take an active drug pill and a placebo pill (contains no active medication). The main purpose of the study is to test the investigational study medication compared to the comparison medication in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, to see if it has an effect on various mental abilities such as thinking and memory.
Participation in the study will be approximately three years, with visits to see your study doctor and telephone calls.
Results from this research study are expected to provide information that could help heart failure patients in the future.
