Cardiovascular Disease Research Study

David CoganDavid Cogan

***********STUDY IS NOW CLOSED********

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) means disease of the heart and blood vessels. It is a deadly disease that affects millions of people across the UK. It is generally caused by a process of clogging up the arteries and can lead to conditions such as heart attack, stroke or circulation problems.

Some of the known current risk factors for CVD include high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

Recent research has shown that a cholesterol-related substance in the blood, called Lipoprotein (a) is an independent risk factor for CVD. Many of us have high levels of this protein and will be unaware of it, as this is not something that is currently checked as a routine in clinical practice. The levels in our blood appear to be determined by our genetic background.

As part of a worldwide study, we are looking for individuals with a history of CVD to take part in a study investigating a new treatment aimed at reducing the risk of further heart attack or stroke by lowering the levels of lipoprotein (a) in those affected by high levels of this protein.

If you are interested in taking part, please complete our survey. Alternatively, give us a call on 0141 946 7888 to find out more and check your eligibility.

The study is likely to last for about 4 years in total. Inconvenience and travel expenses of £45 will be paid to eligible participants at each study visit during this time.
