This multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial enrolled 2569 patients with reduced left ventricular function (ejection fraction <35%) and symptomatic heart failure.

The addition of enalapril to the conventional heart failure therapy was found to significantly:

  • reduce mortality by 16%
  • reduce hospitalisation for heart failure by 26%
