Heart failure is a significant clinical and public health concern that affects > ~64 million people worldwide. Approximately half of patients with heart failure have reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). HFrEF, also referred to as systolic heart failure, arises when the left ventricular ejection fraction is ≤ 40% and is accompanied by progressive left ventricular dilatation and adverse cardiac remodeling. The goal of HFrEF treatment is to reduce mortality and improve clinical outcomes.
