Study Description

This is a pilot, multicenter, real-world, single-visit, low risk, phase IV interventional study to efficiently identify new cases of heart failure (HF) Stage C in subjects who are at risk of cardiovascular (CV) disease in high-volume ambulatory primary care settings in 3 countries in Central America.

Heart Failure
Phase 4
Overall status 
Enrollment count 
317 participants
Start date 
Jan 31, 2020
Completion date 
Mar 31, 2021
61 Years - 100 Years (Adult, Older Adult)


Diagnostic Test
NYHA assessment
The New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional classification of HF
Serum NT-proBNP concentration
Subjects with NYHA score ≥ II will undergo a rapid, on site serum NT-proBNP test on the same day of the visit. Roche CARDIAC proBNP+ test, using the Cobas h 232 device, is a quantitative immunological test for the determination of NT-proBNP in heparinized venous blood.
Diagnostic Test
Transthoracic Ecocardiogram
Subjects with a serum NT-proBNP result of ≥ 125 pg/mL at Visit 1 will be referred to a study cardiologist for a transthoracic echocardiogram to assess LVEF and relevant structural heart disease
