The EXPLORER-HCM trial, originally published in The Lancet, looked at the role of mavacamten as a potential treatment for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Wanting to help patients and other non-specialists understand this study, the authors decided to develop a plain language summary of the publication.
Written by Cynthia Burstein Waldman (a patient author) and Anjali Owens, the new PLSP ‘A plain language summary of the EXPLORER-HCM study: mavacamten for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy’ has been published in Future Cardiology.
