Drug treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) is well established with a wealth of supporting evidence from clinical trials. ACE inhibitors or ARBs, beta blockers, and loop diuretics are typically used in first-line treatment of HFrEF patients. Given the heavily genericized nature of the market, branded agents, such as Novartis’s Entresto and Amgen’s Corlanor, have had difficulty establishing a foothold; nevertheless, use of Entresto has been steadily growing since its launch in 2015. This HFrEF treatment algorithm offers insight into the U.S. prescribing patterns in this CHF subpopulation.
