      The findings of a study of hospital inpatient mortality and length of time spent for cardiogenic shock patients in the United States were released by Windtree Therapeutics. Cardiogenic shock happens when the heart is unable to pump sufficient blood and oxygen to the brain, kidneys, and other important organs. Cardiogenic shock is a medical issue that requires rapid attention.

      According to hospital claims statistics from the United States, inpatient death for cardiogenic shock cases was 30% in 2020.   The fatality rate for acute myocardial infarction in the United States was 5% in 2020, which helps to explain the relative severity of cardiogenic shock. 3 The findings, combined with previously published primary market research conducted with 100 U.S. cardiologists who noted a greater need for potential treatments and a high likelihood of using an agent with istaroxime’s clinical profile, highlight the need for enhanced pharmacologic innovation for cardiogenic shock patients.

      Additionally, U.S. hospital claims data were assessed to determine the length of stay in the hospital for cardiogenic shock patients. The average length of stay for patients with cardiogenic shock was 19.6 days with a median of 10 days in 2020.4 According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the U.S. national average for a hospital stay of any disease was 4.6 days in 2020.

      Craig Fraser, CEO and President of Windtree Therapeutics stated that,

      They’re aiming to finish their early cardiogenic shock trial with istaroxime, with the overall goal of producing a medication that can be utilized earlier to restore blood pressure and cardiac activity without the negative consequences that many older drugs have. They should be able to assess the results of this preliminary early cardiogenic shock research in the coming months, and if they are positive, they will meet with regulatory agencies to analyze the development program and approval needs, as well as the possibility of applying for supportive pathways that could shorten development timeframes.
