Infinata’s BioPharm Insight Gears Up for the 2013 American College of Cardiology Meeting with the Release of its Cardiovascular Diseases Report
Date:3/7/2013

Norwood, MA (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

As we get closer to the American College of Cardiology (ACC) meeting 9-11 March, BioPharm Insight has put together a snapshot of forward-looking cardiovascular (CV) disease coverage. To view the full report, start a free trial today.

CV-related diseases are the number one cause of death globally, with an estimated incidence rate of 17.3 million people, according to World Health Organization (WHO) 2008 statistics. Besides antiplatelets and antithrombotic therapies, oral anticoagulants have been prescribed to prevent CV disease, replacing the cumbersome standard-of-care, warfarin.

In January 2013, BioPharm Insight reported that Daiichi Sankyo's Phase III Lixiana (edoxaban) stroke prevention drug is not viewed as differentiated enough from already-approved drugs such as Boehringer Ingelheim's Pradaxa (dabigatran), Bayer/Johnson & Johnson's Xarelto (rivaroxaban) and Bristol-Myers Squibb/Pfizer's Eliquis (apixaban).

WHO's data shows 7.5 million deaths, or 13% of all CV-related deaths, can be attributed to raised blood pressure. Of those 7.5 million deaths, 51% are due to stroke and 45% are due to coronary heart disease. Cholesterol accumulation in blood vessels is a major risk factor for stroke and heart disease.

On 14 December 2012, BioPharm Insight reported that Merck's Vytorin (simvastin/ezetimibe) and Zetia (ezetimibe) cholesterol drug sales could be negatively impacted should the IMPROVE-IT CV outcomes trial for Vytorin fail to demonstrate a significant reduction in events. Experts also believe that due to the recent failure of the HPS2-THRIVE outcomes trial of Merck's "good" cholesterol-raising (HDL) drug Tredaptive, the FDA
