TRANSITION demonstrated that ENTRESTO® (sacubitril/valsartan) can be safely initiated in patients shortly after an acute heart failure episode in stable NYHA Class II-IV HFrEF patients1
The results of TRANSITION demonstrated that early initiation of Entresto in-hospital or soon after discharge (i.e. in a 2-week window) showed similar tolerability.1
Tolerability was measured by proportion of patients achieving the 97/103 mg twice daily dose of Entresto at week 10 post randomization.
