Partnership for Anemia: Clinical and Translational Trials in the Elderly (PACTTE)

Within the CVRN-HF Network, and in collaboration with NIA-sponsored PACTTE consortium investigators, we will examine the following among a large, multi-center cohort of elderly patients with heart failure with reduced or preserved left ventricular systolic function: 1) to characterize the contemporary frequency of testing for and prevalence of anemia; 2) to assess the frequency, timing and extent of evaluation for reversible causes of anemia in those with documented anemia; 3) to evaluate contemporary adverse event rates by hemoglobin level; and 4) to examine the feasibility of conducting a potential pragmatic clinical trial of systematic evaluation of anemia in elderly heart failure patients.
