One such medication being studied in this effort is sacubitril/valsartan, also known as entresto. Scott David Solomon, MD, from Brigham & Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School discussed the results of the Paradigm-HF trial which studied how the medication can help even "stable" heart failure patients. Solomon said the results of the study showed the benefit of this medication would work when compared to other patients including those ACE inhibitors or ARBs.
