The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of finerenone compared to placebo (a tablet without active substance) in the reduction of cardiovascular death (generally meaning death due to disease of the heart or blood vessels) and total Heart Failure (HF) events, including HF hospitalization and urgent visits for HF(generally meaning a hospital stay or urgent presentation to a healthcare unit due to worsening symptoms of heart failure) in patients suffering from HF with an ejection fraction greater than or equal to 40%. Researchers will also collect information on how much the heart disease has impact on patient’s lives, change of kidney function, and how well finerenone treatment is tolerated. The study plans to enroll 5500 male and female patients of the age of 40 years and above suffering from heart failure with ejection fraction greater than or equal to 40%. Participants will take the study product as oral tablet with a dose between 0 (Placebo) 40 mg once daily. Study duration will be up to 43 months.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the dose-response efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of AZD5718 compared to placebo in participants with proteinuric chronic kidney disease (CKD).

This study will compare the new medicine IcoSema, which is a combination of insulin icodec and semaglutide, taken once a week, to semaglutide taken once a week in people with type 2 diabetes. The study will look at how well IcoSema controls blood sugar level in people with type 2 diabetes compared to semaglutide. Participants will either get IcoSema or semaglutide. Which treatment participants get is decided by chance. IcoSema is a new medicine that doctors cannot prescribe. Doctors can already prescribe semaglutide in many countries. Participants will get IcoSema or semaglutide, which they must inject once a week with a pen, which has a small needle, in a skin fold in the thigh, upper arm, or stomach. The study will last for about 1 year and 1 month. Participants will have 18 clinic visits, 34 phone/video calls with the study doctor, and 4 contacts with the site that can either be clinic visits or phone/video calls. At 11 clinic visits participants will have blood samples taken. At 7 clinic visits participants cannot eat or drink (except for water) for 8 hours before the visit. Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or plan to get pregnant during the study period.

The objective of this clinical study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of NCX 470 Ophthalmic Solution in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) in subjecs with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma. Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to NCX 470 0.1% or to latanoprost 0.005% to be administered to both eyes once daily in the evening for up to 12 months.

This study is conducted to see if ziltivekimab reduces the risk of having cardiovascular events (for example heart attack and stroke) in people with cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and inflammation. Participants will either get ziltivekimab (active medicine) or placebo (a dummy medicine which has no effect on the body). This is known as the study medicine. Which treatment participants get is decided by chance. Participants chance of getting ziltivekimab or placebo is the same. Ziltivekimab is not yet approved in any country or region in the world. It is a new medicine doctors cannot prescribe. Participants will get the study medicine in a pre filled syringe. Participants will need to use the pre filled syringe to inject the study medicine into a skinfold once-monthly. The study is expected to last for up to 4 years. Participants will have up to 20 clinic visits. Participants will have blood and urine samples taken at most of the clinic visits. Participants will have their heart examined using sound waves (echocardiography) and electrodes (electrocardiogram). Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to get pregnant during the study period.

ORION-4 is a research study coordinated by the University of Oxford and co-sponsored by The University of Oxford and Novartis (Protocol: CTSU_MDCO-PCS-17-01 (CKJX839B12301)). The study aims to find out if a new cholesterol-lowering injection (inclisiran) safely lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes in people who have already had one of these conditions, or who have had an operation or procedure to treat blocked arteries.

Condition: Cholesterol, Heart Disease

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of IONIS-AGT-LRx compared to placebo on systolic blood pressure (SBP) from baseline to Study Day 85 in uncontrolled hypertensive participants on ≥ 3 antihypertensive medications and to evaluate the effect of IONIS-AGT-LRx on SBP, diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and plasma angiotensinogen (AGT) at each scheduled visit in uncontrolled hypertensive participants on ≥ 3 antihypertensive medications.

This study is to assess LDL-C reductions at Week 52 with monthly (Q4W [≤31 days]) dosing of LIB003 (lerodalcibep) 300 mg administered subcutaneously (SC) compared to placebo in patients with very-high risk for CVD on a stable diet and oral LDL-C lowering drug therapy.

Condition: Cholesterol, Heart Disease

This study is to assess LDL-C reductions at Week 52 with monthly (Q4W [≤31 days]) dosing of LIB003 (lerodalcibep) 300 mg administered subcutaneously (SC) compared to placebo in patients with CVD, or at high risk for CVD, on a stable diet and oral LDL-C lowering drug therapy

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of vericiguat in participants with chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), specifically those with symptomatic chronic HFrEF who have not had a recent hospitalization for heart failure or need for outpatient intravenous (IV) diuretics. The primary hypothesis is that vericiguat is superior to placebo in reducing the risk of cardiovascular death or heart failure hospitalization.

This study will look at the long-term effects of semaglutide (active medicine) on diabetic eye disease when compared to placebo (dummy medicine). The study will be performed in people with type 2 diabetes. Participants will either get semaglutide or placebo in addition to their diabetes medicines – which treatment the participant gets is decided by chance. Participants will inject the study medicine using a pen-injector. The medicine must be injected in a skin fold in the stomach, thigh or upper arm once a week. The study will last for 5 years.
