Phase phase 3

Trial size 868 participants
Trial identifier NCT02934217, 2013-830


Infarct size is a major determinant of vital prognosis after AMI. We recently reported that cyclosporine A, when administered immediately prior to PCI reperfusion, can significantly reduce infarct size in STEMI patients. The CIRCUS study aimed at determining the impact of cyclosporine on the combined incidence of (death, hospitalization for heart failure, LV remodelling) at one year after AMI. However, many patients may display increased adverse LV remodelling beyond year 1 and develop heart failure thereafter. The present CIRCUS II trial aims at examining the 3-year clinical outcome of all patients recruited in the CIRCUS study.
