Combined CABG and Stem-Cell Transplantation for Heart Failure

The prevalence of symptomatic heart failure in general population is up to 2% and the prevalence increases rapidly with age. Half of the patients with symptomatic heart failure will die within 4 years of diagnosis.The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of bone marrow-derived stem cell transplantation ...

Effect of 6R-BH4 Treatment in Coronary Artery Disease (OXBIO Study)

Decreased production of nitric oxide (NO) from the endothelium (the layer of cells that forms the lining of all blood vessels) has been shown to contribute to atherosclerosis. NO has multiple beneficial effects on vascular function. Endothelial function can be measured in humans via a number of methods, and endothelial ...

Systemic Treatment With Everolimus for the Prevention of MACE After Bare Metal Stent Implantation

The purpose of the present study is to provide the first in-human safety and efficacy evaluations of systemic oral anti-proliferative Everolimus therapy compared to placebo in patients treated by bare metal stents for significant coronary artery disease. The aim is to reduce Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACEs) including death, coronary ...

The Effect of Licorice Root Extract and Pomegranate Juice on Atherosclerotic Parameters in Diabetic Patients

The study will check whether taking 100 mg of licorice root extract or 250 cc of pomegranate juice daily by men with diabetes mellitus who are non-smokers and already treated with statins decreases the risk of developing atherosclerosis. The hypothesis of the study is that natural anti-oxidants (such as licorice ...

Phase

Subclinical COronary Atheroscleorosis Updated With Coronary cT Angiography (SCOUT Study)

A large proportion of patients with sudden cardiac death or nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI) had no prior symptom, which emphasizes the importance of early detection and treatment of the underlying subclinical coronary atherosclerosis before they happen. However, there are no powerful screening methods to detect subclinical coronary atherosclerosis until recently. ...

A Study Evaluating the Effects of Lipid Lowering Treatment on Steroid Synthesis

Today atherosclerotic diseases are among the most important causes of death in the world. Epidemiological, clinical, genetic, experimental and pathological studies have clearly shown the role of lipoproteins in atherosclerosis. LDL is the major atherogenic lipoprotein and has been defined as the primary target of lipid lowering treatment by NCEP. ...
