The trial evaluated effects of RheothRx (poloxame188) in patients acute myocardial infarction. The trial demonstrated that RheothRx had no effect on mortality, reinfarction, cardiogenic shock and an adverse effect on renal function, LV ejection fraction and heart failure (especially at higher doses).  Based on result sof this trial further development of the study drug was discontinued. The early rapid provision of clear results resulted in clear decisions, so that a larger phase III trial was not needed.

Study of Design: Open-Label placebo-controlled close-finding trial.

Intervention: RehothRX vs. Placebo.

Length of Study: 1.5 years

# of Patients: 2,948

Patient Populations: Acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction.
