 entresto

Act now to change the course of HF in your patients with reduced ejection fraction.

ENTRESTO was studied in PARADIGM-HF, the largest ever HF trial 1

You may know ENTRESTO by its trial name, LCZ696.

ENTRESTO was compared head to head vs the current standard of care (enalapril) in a double-blind randomised controlled trial including >8400 HF patients with reduced ejection fraction and NYHA class II-IV. 1

The trial was stopped early due to a clear benefit (median follow-up: 27 months). 1

ENTRESTO is a combination of sacubitril, a neprilysin inhibitor, and valsartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker. It is indicated in adult patients for treatment of symptomatic chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.
