RESUMO

In March 2019, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a nasal spray formulation of esketamine for the treatment of resistant depression in adults. Esketamine is the S-enantiomer of ketamine, an FDA-approved anaesthetic, known to cause dissociation and, occasionally, hallucinations. While ketamine has not been approved for depression in the USA or in any other country, it has been used off-label in cases of severe depression. This commentary critically reviewed the evidence on esketamine submitted to the FDA, aiming to draw implications for clinical practice, research and regulatory science.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Studies have shown the efficacy of norepinephrine in the treatment of maternal hypotension during cesarean section by comparing it to treatment with phenylephrine. However, few studies have compared the efficacy of norepinephrine to ephedrine. METHODS: Ninety-seven women undergoing elective cesarean section were administered norepinephrine at 4 µg/minute (group N; n = 48) or ephedrine at 4 mg/minute (group E; n = 49) immediately postspinal anesthesia, with an on-off titration to maintain systolic blood pressure (SBP) at 80% to 120% of baseline. A rescue bolus of 8 µg norepinephrine was given whenever SBP reached the predefined lower limit. Our primary outcome was the incidence of tachycardia. Secondary outcomes included the incidence of bradycardia, hypertension, hypotension, severe hypotension, hypotensive episodes, number of rescue top-ups, hemodynamic performance error including median performance error (MDPE), and median absolute performance error (MDAPE). Neonatal Apgar scores and umbilical arterial (UA) blood gas data were also collected. RESULTS: Women in group N experienced fewer cases of tachycardia (4.2% vs 30.6%, P = .002, odds ratio: 0.11 [95% confidence interval, CI: 0.02-0.47]), a lower standardized heart rate (HR) (70.3 ±â€Š11 vs 75 ±â€Š11, P = .04, difference: 4.7 ±â€Š2.2 [95% CI: 0.24-9.1]), and a lower MDPE for HR (1.3 ±â€Š9.6 vs 8.4 ±â€Š13.5 bpm, P = .003, difference: 3.1 ±â€Š1.8 [95% CI: -0.6-6.7]). In addition, the lowest or the highest HR was lower in group N compared to group E (both P < .05). Meanwhile, the standardized SBP in group N was lower than that in group E (P = .04). For neonates, the UA blood gas showed a higher base excess (BE) and a lower lactate level in group N compared to E (both P < .001). Other hemodynamic variables, maternal, and neonatal outcomes were similar. CONCLUSION: Infusion of 4 µg/minute norepinephrine presented fewer cases of tachycardia, less fluctuation and a lower HR compared to baseline values, as well as a less stressed fetal status compared to ephedrine infusion at 4 mg/minute. In addition, norepinephrine infusion presented a lower standardized SBP compared to ephedrine.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Remifentanil infusion is used as an intraoperative anesthetic for thyroidectomy, but has been associated with acute opioid tolerance and hyperalgesia. A national shortage of remifentanil provided an opportunity to study postoperative pain in patients undergoing thyroidectomy. METHODS: Retrospective review of prospectively collected data from an outpatient surgery center. Primary analysis compared patients treated before and after remifentanil shortage. RESULTS: Median postoperative opioid consumption was 20 morphine milligram equivalents (MMEs) among those treated in the high-dose period and 15 MMEs in the low-dose period. Remifentanil/weight received was a significant predictor of requiring a postoperative narcotic (P = .006). Total non-remifentanil narcotics administered were equivalent but patients in the low dose period received higher amounts of intraoperative long-acting narcotics. CONCLUSIONS: Remifentanil infusion for thyroid surgery is associated with higher postoperative pain and postoperative narcotics requirement. While a hyperalgesia state is possible, shifting of longer-acting narcotics from intraoperative to postoperatively is also supported.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Dexmedetomidine (DEX) is increasingly used intraoperatively in infants undergoing cardiac surgery. This phase 1 multicentre study sought to: (i) determine the safety of DEX for cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass; (ii) determine the pharmacokinetics (PK) of DEX; (iii) create a PK model and dosing for steady-state DEX plasma levels; and (iv) validate the PK model and dosing. METHODS: We included 122 neonates and infants (0-180 days) with D-transposition of the great arteries, ventricular septal defect, or tetralogy of Fallot. Dose escalation was used to generate NONMEM® PK modelling, and then validation was performed to achieve low (200-300 pg ml-1), medium (400-500 pg ml-1), and high (600-700 pg ml-1) DEX plasma concentrations. RESULTS: Five of 122 subjects had adverse safety outcomes (4.1%; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.8-9.2%). Two had junctional rhythm, two had second-/third-degree atrioventricular block, and one had hypotension. Clearance (CL) immediately postoperative and CL on CPB were reduced by approximately 50% and 95%, respectively, compared with pre-CPB CL. DEX clearance after CPB was 1240 ml min-1 70 kg-1. Age at 50% maximum clearance was approximately 2 days, and that at 90% maximum clearance was 18 days. Overall, 96.1% of measured DEX concentrations fell within the 5th-95th percentile prediction intervals in the PK model validation. Dosing strategies are recommended for steady-state DEX plasma levels ranging from 200 to 1000 pg ml-1. CONCLUSIONS: When used with a careful dosing strategy, DEX results in low incidence and severity of adverse safety events in infants undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. This validated PK model should assist clinicians in selecting appropriate dosing. The results of this phase 1 trial provide preliminary data for a phase 3 trial of DEX neuroprotection.

RESUMO

Importance: Experimental data suggest that intravenous vitamin C may attenuate inflammation and vascular injury associated with sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Objective: To determine the effect of intravenous vitamin C infusion on organ failure scores and biological markers of inflammation and vascular injury in patients with sepsis and ARDS. Design, Setting, and Participants: The CITRIS-ALI trial was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial conducted in 7 medical intensive care units in the United States, enrolling patients (N = 167) with sepsis and ARDS present for less than 24 hours. The study was conducted from September 2014 to November 2017, and final follow-up was January 2018. Interventions: Patients were randomly assigned to receive intravenous infusion of vitamin C (50 mg/kg in dextrose 5% in water, n = 84) or placebo (dextrose 5% in water only, n = 83) every 6 hours for 96 hours. Main Outcomes and Measures: The primary outcomes were change in organ failure as assessed by a modified Sequential Organ Failure Assessment score (range, 0-20, with higher scores indicating more dysfunction) from baseline to 96 hours, and plasma biomarkers of inflammation (C-reactive protein levels) and vascular injury (thrombomodulin levels) measured at 0, 48, 96, and 168 hours. Results: Among 167 randomized patients (mean [SD] age, 54.8 years [16.7]; 90 men [54%]), 103 (62%) completed the study to day 60. There were no significant differences between the vitamin C and placebo groups in the primary end points of change in mean modified Sequential Organ Failure Assessment score from baseline to 96 hours (from 9.8 to 6.8 in the vitamin C group [3 points] and from 10.3 to 6.8 in the placebo group [3.5 points]; difference, -0.10; 95% CI, -1.23 to 1.03; P = .86) or in C-reactive protein levels (54.1 vs 46.1 µg/mL; difference, 7.94 µg/mL; 95% CI, -8.2 to 24.11; P = .33) and thrombomodulin levels (14.5 vs 13.8 ng/mL; difference, 0.69 ng/mL; 95% CI, -2.8 to 4.2; P = .70) at 168 hours. Conclusions and Relevance: In this preliminary study of patients with sepsis and ARDS, a 96-hour infusion of vitamin C compared with placebo did not significantly improve organ dysfunction scores or alter markers of inflammation and vascular injury. Further research is needed to evaluate the potential role of vitamin C for other outcomes in sepsis and ARDS. Trial Registration: ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02106975.

RESUMO

Avoiding excess fluid administration is necessary when managing critically ill surgical patients. The aim of this study was to delineate the current practices of IV electrolyte (IVE) replacement in a surgical ICU and quantify their contribution to the fluid balance (FB) status. Patients admitted to the surgical ICU over a six-month period were reviewed. Patients undergoing dialysis and those with ICU stay <72 hours were excluded. A total of 248 patients were included. The median age was 60 years, and 57 per cent were male. Overall, 1131 patient ICU days were analyzed. The median daily FB was 672 mL. IVEs were administered in 62 per cent of ICU days. In days that IVEs were used, negative FB was significantly less likely to be achieved (62% vs 69%, P = 0.02). The most commonly administered IVE was calcium (32% of ICU days); however, the largest volume of IVE was administered in the form of phosphorus (median 225 mL). Diuretics were administered in 17 per cent of ICU days. Patients who received diuretics were significantly more likely to receive IVE (70% vs 61%, P = 0.02). Administration of IVE may contribute to the daily positive FB of surgical ICU patients. Implementation of practices that can ameliorate this effect is encouraged.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The efficacy of ustekinumab, an antagonist of the p40 subunit of interleukin-12 and interleukin-23, as induction and maintenance therapy in patients with ulcerative colitis is unknown. METHODS: We evaluated ustekinumab as 8-week induction therapy and 44-week maintenance therapy in patients with moderate-to-severe ulcerative colitis. A total of 961 patients were randomly assigned to receive an intravenous induction dose of ustekinumab (either 130 mg [320 patients] or a weight-range-based dose that approximated 6 mg per kilogram of body weight [322]) or placebo (319). Patients who had a response to induction therapy 8 weeks after administration of intravenous ustekinumab were randomly assigned again to receive subcutaneous maintenance injections of 90 mg of ustekinumab (either every 12 weeks [172 patients] or every 8 weeks [176]) or placebo (175). The primary end point in the induction trial (week 8) and the maintenance trial (week 44) was clinical remission (defined as a total score of ≤2 on the Mayo scale [range, 0 to 12, with higher scores indicating more severe disease] and no subscore >1 [range, 0 to 3] on any of the four Mayo scale components). RESULTS: The percentage of patients who had clinical remission at week 8 among patients who received intravenous ustekinumab at a dose of 130 mg (15.6%) or 6 mg per kilogram (15.5%) was significantly higher than that among patients who received placebo (5.3%) (P<0.001 for both comparisons). Among patients who had a response to induction therapy with ustekinumab and underwent a second randomization, the percentage of patients who had clinical remission at week 44 was significantly higher among patients assigned to 90 mg of subcutaneous ustekinumab every 12 weeks (38.4%) or every 8 weeks (43.8%) than among those assigned to placebo (24.0%) (P = 0.002 and P<0.001, respectively). The incidence of serious adverse events with ustekinumab was similar to that with placebo. Through 52 weeks of exposure, there were two deaths (one each from acute respiratory distress syndrome and hemorrhage from esophageal varices) and seven cases of cancer (one each of prostate, colon, renal papillary, and rectal cancer and three nonmelanoma skin cancers) among 825 patients who received ustekinumab and no deaths and one case of cancer (testicular cancer) among 319 patients who received placebo. CONCLUSIONS: Ustekinumab was more effective than placebo for inducing and maintaining remission in patients with moderate-to-severe ulcerative colitis.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Biologic therapies are widely used in patients with ulcerative colitis. Head-to-head trials of these therapies in patients with inflammatory bowel disease are lacking. METHODS: In a phase 3b, double-blind, double-dummy, randomized trial conducted at 245 centers in 34 countries, we compared vedolizumab with adalimumab in adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis to determine whether vedolizumab was superior. Previous exposure to a tumor necrosis factor inhibitor other than adalimumab was allowed in up to 25% of patients. The patients were assigned to receive infusions of 300 mg of vedolizumab on day 1 and at weeks 2, 6, 14, 22, 30, 38, and 46 (plus injections of placebo) or subcutaneous injections of 40 mg of adalimumab, with a total dose of 160 mg at week 1, 80 mg at week 2, and 40 mg every 2 weeks thereafter until week 50 (plus infusions of placebo). Dose escalation was not permitted in either group. The primary outcome was clinical remission at week 52 (defined as a total score of ≤2 on the Mayo scale [range, 0 to 12, with higher scores indicating more severe disease] and no subscore >1 [range, 0 to 3] on any of the four Mayo scale components). To control for type I error, efficacy outcomes were analyzed with a hierarchical testing procedure, with the variables in the following order: clinical remission, endoscopic improvement (subscore of 0 to 1 on the Mayo endoscopic component), and corticosteroid-free remission at week 52. RESULTS: A total of 769 patients underwent randomization and received at least one dose of vedolizumab (383 patients) or adalimumab (386 patients). At week 52, clinical remission was observed in a higher percentage of patients in the vedolizumab group than in the adalimumab group (31.3% vs. 22.5%; difference, 8.8 percentage points; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.5 to 15.0; P = 0.006), as was endoscopic improvement (39.7% vs. 27.7%; difference, 11.9 percentage points; 95% CI, 5.3 to 18.5; P<0.001). Corticosteroid-free clinical remission occurred in 12.6% of the patients in the vedolizumab group and in 21.8% in the adalimumab group (difference, -9.3 percentage points; 95% CI, -18.9 to 0.4). Exposure-adjusted incidence rates of infection were 23.4 and 34.6 events per 100 patient-years with vedolizumab and adalimumab, respectively, and the corresponding rates for serious infection were 1.6 and 2.2 events per 100 patient-years. CONCLUSIONS: In this trial involving patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis, vedolizumab was superior to adalimumab with respect to achievement of clinical remission and endoscopic improvement, but not corticosteroid-free clinical remission.

RESUMO

Cefuroxime is widely used as antibiotic prophylaxis for orthopaedic procedures. We evaluated bone, subcutaneous tissue (SCT) and plasma pharmacokinetics of cefuroxime in male patients undergoing total knee replacement (TKR) after both traditional short-term infusion (STI) and continuous infusion (CI). Eighteen male patients undergoing TKR were randomly assigned to STI or CI of 1.5 g of cefuroxime. Measurements were obtained in plasma, SCT, cancellous and cortical bone every 30 min for 8 h following surgery. For sampling in solid tissues, microdialysis was applied. Population pharmacokinetic modelling was performed in order to estimate pharmacokinetic parameters, and to assess the probability of attaining cefuroxime concentrations above clinically relevant minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) for 65% and 90% of the 8 h dosing interval. Low SCT and cortical bone penetration were found in both the STI and the CI group, but the findings were only significant in the STI group. Irrespective of MIC, tissue and target, CI leads to improved probability of attaining relevant pharmacokinetic targets compared with STI. For the Staphylococcus aureus MIC breakpoint (4 µg/mL), STI leads to inadequate probability of target attainment. CI of 1.5 g of cefuroxime leads to improved probability of attaining relevant pharmacokinetic targets in male TKR patients compared with traditional STI. These findings suggest that application of CI may improve antibiotic prophylaxis for male TKR patients.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Refractory nasopharyngeal carcinoma is challenging to treat and at present there is no standard treatment or any good choice. PATIENT CONCERNS: Although the three patients in our case reports had already underwent multiple treatments before, they still suffered from disease recurrence of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. DIAGNOSIS: They were diagnosed as refractory nasopharyngeal carcinoma. INTERVENTIONS: A continuous infusion of Endostar, an antiangiogenic agent, combined with chemotherapy and radiation therapy was given to treat the patients. OUTCOMES: Patients showed complete or partial response to the combined therapy as evidenced by regression of tumors and decrease in plasma Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA load. LESSONS: Continuous infusions of Endostar in combination with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy showed promising efficacy and safety. The combination therapy indicates a new approach to treat refractory nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Magnesium sulfate is the ideal drug for the prevention and treatment of eclampsia. Nevertheless, the best regimen for protection against eclampsia with minimal side effects remains to be established. This study aimed to compare serum magnesium levels during intravenous infusion of magnesium sulfate at 1 gram/hour versus 2 grams/hour as a maintenance dose to prevent eclampsia in pregnant and postpartum women with severe preeclampsia. METHODS: A randomized, triple-blind clinical trial was conducted, comparing serum magnesium levels during the intravenous infusion of magnesium sulfate at 1 gram/hour versus 2 grams/hour as a maintenance dose for the prevention of eclampsia in 62 pregnant and postpartum women with severe preeclampsia, 31 in each group. An intravenous loading dose of 6 grams of magnesium sulfate was administered over 30 minutes in both groups. The patients were then randomized to receive a maintenance dose of either 1 or 2 grams/hour for 24 hours. Primary outcomes consisted of serum magnesium levels at the following time points: baseline, 30 minutes, every 2 hours until the end of the first 6 hours, and every 6 hours thereafter until the termination of magnesium sulfate infusion. Side effects, maternal complications, and neonatal outcomes were the secondary outcomes. RESULTS: Serum magnesium levels were higher in the 2-gram/hour group, with a statistically significant difference from 2 hours after the beginning of the magnesium sulfate infusion (P <.05). Oliguria was the most common complication recorded in both groups, with no significant difference between the 2 regimens (RR 0.88; 95% CI: 0.49-1.56; P = .65). No cases of eclampsia occurred. Side effects were more common in the 2-gram/hour group (RR 1.89; 95% CI: 1.04-3.41; P = .02); however, all were mild. There were no differences between the 2 groups regarding neonatal outcomes, except for admission to neonatal intensive care, which was more frequent in the 1-gram/hour group (25% vs 6.3%; P = .04). CONCLUSION: Magnesium sulfate therapy at the maintenance dose of 1 gram/hour was just as effective as the 2-gram maintenance dose, with fewer side effects.

RESUMO

Objective: To investigate the clinical value of laparoscopic peritoneal dialysis catheter implantation in peritoneal chemotherapy for gastric cancer with peritoneal metastasis. Methods: From January 2019 to June 2019, the clinical data of 6 patients diagnosed as gastric cancer with peritoneal metastasis were retrospectively analyzed in the Gastrointestinal Surgery Department of Ruijin Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine. Five were male and 1 was female. The median age was 69.5 (28-77) years. The median body mass index (BMI) was 22.8 (19.6-23.5). All procedures were performed under general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation. The patient's body position and facility layout in the operating room were consistent with those of laparoscopic gastrectomy. The operator's position: the main surgeon was located on the right side of the patient, the first assistant stood on the left side of the patient, and the scopist stood between the patient's legs. Surgical procedure: (1) trocar location: three abdominal trocars was adopted, with one 12 mm umbilical port for the 30° laparoscope (point A). Location of the other two trocars was dependent on the procedure of exploration or biopsy as well as the two polyester cuff position of the peritoneal dialysis catheter: Usually one 5 mm port in the anterior midline 5 cm inferior to the umbilicus point was selected as point B to ensure that the distal end of the catheter could reach the Douglas pouch. The other 5 mm port was located in the right lower quadrant lateral to the umbilicus to establish the subcutaneous tunnel tract, and the proximal cuff was situated 2 cm away from the desired exit site (point C).(2) exploration of the abdominal cavity: a 30° laparoscope was inserted from 12 mm trocar below the umbilicus to explore the entire peritoneal cavity. The uterus and adnexa should be explored additionally for women. Once peritoneal metastasis was investigated and identified, primary laparoscopic peritoneal dialysis catheter implantation was performed so as to facilitate subsequent peritoneal chemotherapy. Ascites were collected for cytology in patients with ascites. (3) peritoneal dialysis catheter placement: the peritoneal dialysis catheter was introduced into the abdominal cavity from point A. Under the direct vision of laparoscopy, 2-0 absorbable ligature was reserved at the expected fixation point of the proximal cuff (point B) for the final knot closure. Non-traumatic graspers were used to pull the distal cuff of peritoneal dialysis catheter out of the abdominal cavity through point B. The 5-mm trocar was removed simultaneously, and the distal cuff was fixed between bilateral rectus sheaths at the anterior midline port site preperitoneally. To prevent subsequent ascites and chemotherapy fluid extravasation, the reserved crocheted wire was knotted. From point C the subcutaneous tunnel tract was created before the peritoneal steath towards the port site lateral to the umbilicus. Satisfactory catheter irrigation and outflow were then confirmed. Chemotherapy regimen after peritoneal dialysis catheterization: all patients began intraperitoneal chemotherapy on the second day after surgery. On the 1st and 8th day of each 3-weeks cycle, paclitaxel (20 mg/m(2)) was administered through peritoneal dialysis catheter, and paclitaxel (50 mg/m(2)) was injected intravenously. Meanwhile, S-1 was orally administered twice daily at a dose of 80 mg·m(-2)·d(-1) for 14 consecutive days followed by 7-days rest. To observe the patients' intraoperative and postoperative conditions. Results: All the procedures were performed successfully without intraoperative complications or conversion to laparotomy. No 30 day postoperative complications were observed. The median operative time was 33.5 (23-38) min. The median time to first flatus was 1(1-2) days, and the median postoperative hospital stay was 3 (3-4) days, without short-term complications within 30 days postoperatively. The last follow-up was up to July 10, 2019, and the patients were followed for 4(1-6) months. No ascites extravasation was observed and no death occurred in the 6 patients. There was no catheter obstruction or peritoneal fluid extravasation during and after chemotherapy. Conclusion: Laparoscopic peritoneal dialysis catheter implantation was safe and feasible for patients with peritoneal metastasis of gastric cancer. The abdominal exploration, tumor staging and the abdominal chemotherapy device implantation can be completed simultaneously, which could simplify the surgical approach, improve the quality of life for patients and further propose a new direction for the development of abdominal chemotherapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUD: The aim of this study was to compare the analgesic and adverse effects of oxycodone with 3 different infusion modes on postoperative pain after laparoscopic radical surgery of cervical cancer. METHODS: Ninety patients undergoing laparoscopic radical surgery of cervical cancer were randomly divided into 3 groups: Group A (continuous infusion with 0.01 mg/kg/h and a bolus dose with 0.03 mg/kg), Group B (a bolus dose with 0.03 mg/kg) and Group C (PCA was administered as a time-scheduled decremental continuous infusion based on lean body mass). A blinded observer recorded Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Ramsay sedation score (RSS), infused cumulative dose of oxycodone and side effects at 1, 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours postoperatively, and satisfaction during the postoperative 48 hours. RESULTS: There were significant differences in the VAS pain score when resting or coughing among 3 groups at 1, 6 and 48 hours postoperatively (P <.05). VAS was significantly higher in Group B than in Group A and C until postoperative 1, 6, and 48 hours (P <.05). There were significant differences in cumulative PCA dose among the 3 groups at 1 and 48 hours postoperatively (P <.05). Group C showed significantly less amount of cumulative PCA dose compared to other 2 groups at 1 hour, whereas cumulative PCA dose of Group A at 48 hours was significantly more than other 2 groups (P <.05). There were no significant differences in postoperative nausea and vomiting, FAS, muscle chilling score and RSS among 3 groups at 1, 6, 12, 24 and 48 hours postoperatively. In addition, there was no difference in overall satisfaction during 48 hours postoperatively among 3 groups. CONCLUSIONS: Oxycodone provides significant analgesic effect in 3 different infusion modes over 48 hours after laparoscopic radical surgery of cervical cancer, and a time-scheduled decremental continuous infusion of oxycodone can become a better choice for patients after surgery of cervical cancer.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Serelaxin is a recombinant form of human relaxin-2, a vasodilator hormone that contributes to cardiovascular and renal adaptations during pregnancy. Previous studies have suggested that treatment with serelaxin may result in relief of symptoms and in better outcomes in patients with acute heart failure. METHODS: In this multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, event-driven trial, we enrolled patients who were hospitalized for acute heart failure and had dyspnea, vascular congestion on chest radiography, increased plasma concentrations of natriuretic peptides, mild-to-moderate renal insufficiency, and a systolic blood pressure of at least 125 mm Hg, and we randomly assigned them within 16 hours after presentation to receive either a 48-hour intravenous infusion of serelaxin (30 µg per kilogram of body weight per day) or placebo, in addition to standard care. The two primary end points were death from cardiovascular causes at 180 days and worsening heart failure at 5 days. RESULTS: A total of 6545 patients were included in the intention-to-treat analysis. At day 180, death from cardiovascular causes had occurred in 285 of the 3274 patients (8.7%) in the serelaxin group and in 290 of the 3271 patients (8.9%) in the placebo group (hazard ratio, 0.98; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.83 to 1.15; P = 0.77). At day 5, worsening heart failure had occurred in 227 patients (6.9%) in the serelaxin group and in 252 (7.7%) in the placebo group (hazard ratio, 0.89; 95% CI, 0.75 to 1.07; P = 0.19). There were no significant differences between the groups in the incidence of death from any cause at 180 days, the incidence of death from cardiovascular causes or rehospitalization for heart failure or renal failure at 180 days, or the length of the index hospital stay. The incidence of adverse events was similar in the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: In this trial involving patients who were hospitalized for acute heart failure, an infusion of serelaxin did not result in a lower incidence of death from cardiovascular causes at 180 days or worsening heart failure at 5 days than placebo.
