Before turning 35, two out of three Americans will have some degree of plaque build-up in their arteries.(1) However, athero typically has no signs or symptoms until an artery becomes severely narrowed or completely blocked. At this point, people may suffer a heart attack, stroke, or other serious, potentially fatal, health problems.

Inside the Artery Explorer, participants travel through the winding path of the human circulatory system as the arteries become narrow and blocked with plaque. Along the way, people are confronted by common risk factors for athero, such as LDL (bad) cholesterol, high blood pressure, and smoking. The experience culminates with a head-on collision with a blood clot, memorably demonstrating how athero can lead to heart attack and stroke.

"Now is the time to join us in the fight against this deadly disease. Take action by telling a friend to talk to their doctor about athero, by taking a loved-one to an US AGAINST ATHERO event or by visiting athero.com to register for free health information," said Mike Tilton, Vice President of AstraZeneca's Cardiovascular therapy area. "As a proud sponsor of the US AGAINST ATHERO movement, AstraZeneca is determined to continue making a meaningful difference in the lives of patients by providing actionable steps to maintain healthy arteries."

Since its 2007 launch, the US AGAINST ATHERO movement has educated millions of Americans about preventing and managing athero.
