Official Trial Title
Microvascular Disease Exercise Trial
Study Description

If you are between the ages of 18 and 85 and are having chest pain, tightness, or shortness of breath while exerting yourself (exercising, working hard in the yard etc.), and have had a negative coronary catheterization you could be eligible for the Microvascular Disease and Exercise (MOVE) study at UVa Health Systems.

Research staff at the University of Virginia is looking for patients suffering from chest pain and shortness of breath to determine if these symptoms could be caused by microvascular disease.

Microvascular is also called small vessel disease. This is a condition in which the small arteries in the heart become narrowed. Small vessel disease causes signs and symptoms of heart disease, such as chest pain and shortness of breath.

Numbers of study visits vary depending on randomization and results of screening tests. Participants will undergo blood tests, a stress MRI, answer questionnaires about their chest pain and possibly supervised exercise if they fit criteria.

Study compensation is up to $75.00 for completion of phase 1 and $175.00 for completion of phase 2.

Parking will be provided by the study.
