Are you an adult with a history of heart failure, or do you just want to help people who do? This study is recruiting people with heart failure and people with normal heart function to explore the role of the gut microbiome in heart and blood vessel function. Participants in this study must be at least 18 years old and willing to provide blood and stool samples. This study takes place in Gainesville, Florida.

Do you want to help find new treatments for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction? This study is testing whether a medicine called spironolactone can help treat heart failure with preserved ejection fraction when paired with the standard treatment. Spironolactone helps to remove excess water and sodium from the body. To participate in this study, you must be between 50 and 99 years old and diagnosed with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.

Are you a professional caregiver for an adult who has serious heart failure? This study is testing whether electronic educational resources, in addition to in-person training , help home aids be more knowledgeable and confident in caring for adults who have serious heart failure. To participate in this study, you must be between 18 and 75 years old, be employed at Visiting Nurse Service of New York's Partners in Care agency, and care for an adult who has heart failure. This study is located in New York, New York.

Do you have heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and thyroid problems? This study will test whether hormone therapy with liothyronine is safe and effective for treating people who have heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and low triiothyronine (T3) syndrome. Low T3 syndrome is a type of thyroid hormone that helps control many functions of your body. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old and diagnosed with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. This study is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Do you have heart failure and need treatment with intravenous (IV) diuretics? This study is exploring the use of chloride supplementation in people with heart failure who require treatment with IV diuretics, which are used to help rid your body of excess water and salt. To participate in this study, you must have heart failure with signs of volume overload (rales, edema, elevated jugular venous pressure [JVP], or weight gain of at least 5 pounds) requiring treatment with IV diuretics. This study takes place in New Haven, Connecticut.

Preliminary animal studies by ourselves and others suggest that the dietary supplement, nicotinamide riboside (NR), may improve cardiac function in heart failure (HF) by increasing cellular levels of its metabolite, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+, NADH). This Study will address a key gap in current knowledge by assessing the mechanisms through which raising blood and myocardial NAD+ levels in humans mediates changes in mitochondrial function, protein and epigenetic modifications, as well as inflammation. Human myocardium will be obtained after 4-14 days of oral NR supplementation from advanced heart failure patients undergoing elective left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. Positive results would provide evidence to proceed with further studies of NR as a mitochondria-targeted metabolic therapy in heart failure.

Do you have coronary heart disease or are you healthy and would like to participate in research? This study is comparing how well two types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners can detect different types of heart diseases, such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, congenital heart disease, and heart valve disease. The new type of MRI scanner in this study uses less energy than a traditional scanner and may be suitable for people who have metal devices in their bodies. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland.

Do you have heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)? This study is testing the effectiveness of thyroid hormone therapy with a medicine called liothyronine (LT3) in individuals HFrEF. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old and have Class I, II, or III heart failure. This study takes place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Are you at least 21 years old, and do you have heart failure? This study aims to better understand why heart failure can make it hard to exercise and perform daily activities. This complication is called exercise intolerance. Participants in the study will complete physical activities and then undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to look for changes in the chemicals the body uses for energy. To participate in this study, you must be at least 21 years old, diagnosed with heart failure, and be medically stable. This study is located in Baltimore, Maryland.
