Physicians at the University of Chicago Medicine are investigating the latest medications, devices and diagnostic methods for the treatment of heart failure. As a result, our heart failure patients often gain access to new treatments available through clinical trials — therapies not widely available at other hospitals. Currently, we are involved in dozens of research projects, including multicenter clinical studies, as well as additional clinical studies and lab studies that are unique to UChicago Medicine.
Examples of investigational clinical research under way include the following:
Physician-scientists from UChicago Medicine have taken a special interest in cardiomyopathy research, skeletal muscle regeneration and other methods to help reverse heart failure on a molecular basis. Other research efforts focus on new ways to improve heart function, preserve organs for transplant and prevent transplant rejection.
