About Atherosclerosis (Athero)

Athero is the progressive buildup of plaque -- made of fat, cholesterol, and other substances -- in the inner walls of the arteries.(1) Elevated cholesterol and other risk factors can contribute to the disease, and for many, the disease progresses silently, with no visible signs or symptoms.(2) Athero is the leading cause of coronary heart disease (CHD), which affects more than 1.2 million Americans and is the No. 1 killer in the U.S.(3) Approximately 785,000 Americans will have their first heart attack in 2009 and about every minute someone will die from a coronary event.(2) Athero is also a leading cause of stroke, which affects nearly 800,000 Americans each year.(2) Together, CHD and stroke kill more Americans every year than all cancers combined.

About US AGAINST ATHERO

US AGAINST ATHERO is a movement sponsored by AstraZeneca to increase our nation's awareness of athero with hopes that all Americans will take steps to take care of their arteries. Through education and information, US AGAINST ATHERO supports people in becoming advocates for their own health and for the health of others. To join the US AGAINST ATHERO effort, please visit www.athero.com.
