Marie asks when clinical trials will start

Hi Marie,

Thanks for your question, hope that your husband is feeling okay after his operation.

Research funded by the Mending Broken Hearts Appeal is not currently at the stage of running clinical trials. We hope that early trials will take place within the next five years.

These early trials are likely to be on a small number of patients, and those that are most severely affected by heart failure.

Your husband’s cardiologist would be the best person to point you towards any clinical trials being undertaken locally that your husband would be eligible to join.

Thanks and best wishes
