CNIC and Banco Santander set up research project on early cardiovascular risk factors
Date:4/8/2010

er trial will cost around 22 million Euros and it will last about nine years. The Instituto de Salud Carlos III and the joined investment of Banco Santander and the Marcelino Botn Foundation will become the two equal sponsors of the project (50% and 50%). During this period, all participants will undergo different types of tests and will receive a periodic and detailed report regarding their cardiovascular health progression.

Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of death worldwide, being responsible for about 1,9 million deaths each year in the European Union. In Spain, they represent 35% of all deaths in men and 43% in women.

The appearance and progression of these pathologies are determined by the presence of risk factors: smoking, high cholesterol, hypertension, sedentary lifestyle, overweight/obesity and diabetes, among others. Based on these parameters, physicians try to predict patients' risk to suffer a cardiovascular disorder, in order to implement adequate prevention measures. However, current strategies not always find the real risks until consequences are irreversible. This investigation will improve the detection of patients already affected but still asymptomatic.

According to Felipe Ptriz, Secretary of State for Research, this agreement "represents a new way of collaboration between public administration and the private sector in order to promote and strengthen Spanish R+D. Also, the preventive nature of the trial incorporates a new approach that is becoming established by the scientific community and means significant financial savings for society".

Emilio Botn, President of the Grupo Santander and the Marcelino Botn Foundation, has also underlined the importance of this initiative, highlighting the benefits for employees as well as its social impact, within the framework of the bank's and the Foundation's Corporate Social Responsibility policies and their contribution to investigation and knowledge gener
