The World Health Organization states that cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death globally.

So, clinical research dedicated to finding new treatments is more important than ever. Finding new treatments provides doctors with more resources to treat cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) diseases. We have a 60-year history of improving patient health through research and development.

Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension is a rare disease where the pressure in blood vessels to the lungs is too high. There are various causes of pulmonary hypertension, and prevalence is attributed to many factors including gender, race, and other medical conditions. No cure currently exists, so research is vital to help to manage and potentially improve symptoms.

There is a lot to consider when deciding whether to participate in a clinical trial. Any clinical trial includes risks, which the study doctor will review with you. Make sure you understand the risks before participating.
