The Diagnostic Benefits of the HyperQTM System in ECG Stress Testing

The study population will comprise of 1200 patients referred to stress test in three Maccabi clinics or cardiac medical centers. All patients will perform an ECG stress test with high-frequency ECG recording from conventional 12 leads using BSP's HyperQ™ System. The recording will be done without affecting or interfering with ...


The Effect of Fish Oil Supplementation on Endothelial Function Heart Rate Variability and Intimal Media Thickness of Patients With Coronary Artery Disease

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there is a difference in endothelial function, heart rate variability and carotid intimal media thickness in patients with coronary artery disease who are receiving fish oil therapy. One hundred patients with established coronary artery disease by coronary angiography will undergo randomization ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Exercise Training on the Function of HDL-Cholesterol Endothelial Function and Endothelial Progenitor Cells in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease (HERCET-Study)

Patients with coronary artery disease are characterized by an increased cardiovascular risk and they often have low blood high density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol levels or HDL-cholesterol with modified vasculoprotective properties. The purpose of the present study is to characterize the quality of HDL-cholesterol in patients with coronary artery disease and normal ...

Evaluation of Chylomicrons Metabolism in Sub-Clinical Atherosclerosis in Patients Whit Heterozigous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) Treated With Statin Plus Ezetimibe

Study Title: Evaluation of chylomicrons metabolism in sub-clinical atherosclerosis in patients whit Heterozigous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) treated with statin plus ezetimibe. Background: Coronary artery calcification (CAC) is a marker of sub-clinical coronary atherosclerosis which correlates with higher risk of clinical events. It was already demonstrated that CAC is more prevalent ...

Comparing Bivalirudin Versus Heparin/ GP IIB/IIA in Patients Undergoing PCI

Anti-thrombotic therapies have enhanced the safety of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In addition to aspirin, heparin and platelet glycoprotein (Gp) IIB/IIIA receptor inhibition have been used as the reference strategy to reduce the incidence of ischemic complications during coronary interventions 1. However, the success of this strategy is limited by ...


Observational Study of Early Metabolic and Vascular Changes in Obesity

Obesity is dramatically increasing in countries with so called western Lifestyle, whereby juveniles are affected in particular. Atherosclerosis, a major consequence of obesity, starts early in life and results in cardiovascular disease and stroke, the main causes of mortality in industrialized countries. STYJOBS / EDECTA is a prospective, observational study ...

Phase N/A

Cardiovascular Disease Screening

This is a screening protocol. This protocol allows two functions: 1) the protocol allows physicians in the Suburban/NHLBI Cardiovascular Imaging program to evaluate patients referred to the program with clinically indicated studies and research studies. 2) It is also designed to determine if patients may be suitable candidates for one ...

Phase N/A

Retrospective Study of the Impact of Drug Eluting Stents

A major limitation of percutaneous coronary stenting compared to coronary artery bypass grafting surgery has been the significantly higher need for repeat revascularization due to restenosis occurring at or near the stent site. By eluting a potent anti-proliferative agent from a polymer coated stent in a time-controlled manner, it has ...

Phase N/A

Blood Endothelium Progenitor Cells and Dendritic Cells as Predictive Biomarkers of in-Stent Restenosis

clinically relevant in stent restenosis occurs in 5-10% of the non-diabetic patients treated with a coronary bare metal stent. Recent research has identified endothelial progenitor cells as well as dendritic cells as components of neointima. Numerical and functional evaluation of endothelial progenitor and dendritic cells at the time of coronary ...

Phase N/A

Genetic- and Biological-Markers of Predisposition to Atherosclerosis: Leipzig-Heart Study

Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in Western societies. It is a complex genetic disorder with many genes involved and significant gene-environment interactions. The aim of the study is to identify novel genetic- and biological-markers of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is assessed in the coronary arteries using ...
