SAFA study

Taking part

What does taking part in the study involve?

If you decide to take part in the SAFA study you will be asked to attend three clinic visits at your local hospital (please see the Participant Information Leaflet for more details).

You will be put into one of two treatment groups; one group will be given spironolactone tablets and the other group will be given an identical looking placebo (‘dummy pill’). Neither you nor your doctor will know which tablet you are taking. You will be asked to take the tablets once a day for 24 weeks (about 6 months).
