ESC 2020 Discussion: The PARALLAX Trial — Prof Burkert Pieske & Dr Harriette Van Spall

Dr Harriette Van Spall (McMaster University, Hamilton, CA) and the principle investigator of the PARALLAX trial, Prof Burkert Pieske (Charité University Medicine Berlin and German Heart Center Berlin, Berlin, DE) discuss the hot line trial presented at ESC 2020.

The purpose of PARALLAX was to demonstrate the superiority of sacubitril/valsartan over individualized medical therapy for comorbidities in reducing N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and improving exercise capacity and HF symptoms in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).
