  • Inclisiran to Prevent Cardiovascular Events in High-risk Primary Prevention Patients.

    open to eligible people ages 40-79

    CKJX839D12302 is a pivotal Phase III study designed to test the hypothesis that treatment with inclisiran sodium 300 milligram (mg) subcutaneous (s.c.) administered on Day 1, Day 90, and every 6 months thereafter in patients at high cardiovascular (CV) risk without a prior major atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) event will significantly reduce the risk of 4-Point-Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events (4P-MACE) defined as a composite of CV death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), non-fatal ischemic stroke, and urgent coronary revascularization, compared to placebo.

  • Assessing Neurocognition After Cerebrovascular Intervention

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Decreased blood flow to the brain can cause decreased cognitive function. Carotid disease can result in decreased blood flow to the brain. The investigators seek to assess this relationship prospectively through performing a battery of neurocognitive assessments, collection of serum markers of inflammation, and through neuroimaging at two points before intervention (2 months and 1 month before stenting) and at two points after intervention (1 month and 2 months after intervention). The goal is to provide prospective evidence to identify the extent to which carotid stenosis and hypoperfusion of the brain results in diminished neurocognitive performance, and see if serum biomarkers before and after stenting correlate with these findings.

  • Coronary Computed Tomography Study to Assess the Effect of Inclisiran in Addition to Maximally Tolerated Statin Therapy on Atherosclerotic Plaque Progression in Participants With a Diagnosis of Non-obstructive Coronary Artery Disease Without Previous Cardiovascular Events

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    CKJX839D12303 is a research study to determine if the study treatment, called inclisiran, in comparison to placebo taken in addition to statin medication can effectively reduce the total amount of plaque formed in the heart's vessels as measured by coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) from baseline to month 24. This study is being conducted in eligible participants with a diagnosis of non-obstructive coronary artery disease (NOCAD), where the coronary arteries are blocked less than 50%, and with no previous cardiovascular events.

  • Time Restricted Eating on Patients With Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Undergoing Cardiac Rehabilitation

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    The purpose of this study is to see if reducing the number of hours during which one eats each day will help reduce levels of LDL cholesterol and improve other markers of metabolic and cardiovascular health (i.e. blood sugar levels and blood pressure). The study also aims to assess changes in exercise capacity and trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) levels in response to Time Restricted Eating (TRE) and Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation (ICR) versus ICR alone. TMAO is a metabolite, or a substance, produced during digestion and metabolism. Preliminary data illustrates a correlation between high levels of TMAO and higher risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality. We will also be looking at participants' long-term cardiovascular health status after they complete the ICR program.

  • IMPact on Revascularization Outcomes of IVUS Guided Treatment of Complex Lesions and Economic Impact

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been shown in clinical trials, registries, and meta-analyses to reduce recurrent events after PCI. This is accomplished by improving the angiographic result with lesion and vessel assessment to guide stent selection and implantation and intravascular imaging following stent implantation to ensure an adequate treatment endpoint has been achieved. Despite extensive literature supporting the use of IVUS in PCI, utilization remains low in the United States. An increasing number of high-risk or complex lesions are being treated with PCI and we hypothesize that the impact of IVUS in these complex lesions will be of increased importance in reducing clinical adverse events while remaining cost effective.

  • Impella®-Supported PCI in High-Risk Patients With Complex Coronary Artery Disease and Reduced Left Ventricular Function

    open to eligible people ages 18-90

    The purpose of this study is to assess if using the Impella® CP (or Impella® 2.5) device during high-risk PCI in patients with reduced left-sided heart function will result in an improvement in symptoms, heart function and health after a heart procedure compared to the current standard of care.

  • Metformin in Pre-Diabetes on Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular OuTcomes

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research will help us to learn if the medicine called metformin reduces the risk of death, heart attacks, and/or strokes in patients who have pre-diabetes and heart or blood vessel problems.

  • Women's Health Initiative Strong and Healthy Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The WHISH trial applies state-of-the science behavioral principles and currently available technologies to deliver a physical activity intervention without face-to-face contact to ~25,000 older U.S. women expected to consent. It includes the National Institute of Aging (NIA) Go4Life® Exercise & Physical Activity materials 3 and WHISH developed targeted materials based on Go4Life® to provide inspirational tips and recommendations about how to achieve nationally recommended levels of PA and overcome barriers to exercise, with a means for self-monitoring and setting personal goals. The intervention builds upon evidence-based behavioral science principles and intervention components that have proven to be effective in increasing PA in older women, with innovative adaptive approaches to tailoring the delivery to meet individual (personal) needs.

  • Novel Non-Invasive Automated Fractional Flow Reserve Software System in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This retrospective study will evaluate the coronary angiograms of approximately 100 patients who have undergone invasive angiography and fractional flow reserve (FFR). DICOM files of the angiograms will be analyzed on a secure computer within the cardiac catheterization laboratory using the AutocathFFR software to assess if invasive FFR measurements and automated computer analysis of FFR measurements correlate. AutocathFFR measurement per lesion will be compared to the gold standard, invasive FFR value, where an FFR ≤ 0.80 will be considered "positive", while an FFR > 0.8 will be considered "negative". The AutocathFFR value will be compared to the invasive FFR measurements. The sensitivity and specificity of the AutocathFFR will be calculated, as well as the AutocathFFR accuracy, positive predictive value and negative predictive value per lesion. Device success will be calculated as the ratio of completed versus initiated AutocathFFR index calculations. Usability of the AutocathFFR software will be evaluated using dedicated questionnaires to be completed by the user (cardiologists).
