Unique New Initiative by World-Recognized Specialists in Heart Disease and Diabetes to Reduce Residual Vascular Risk Launched Today
Date:11/9/2008

ions have been or are in the process of being established in more than 40 countries worldwide. These beneficiaries of the R3i Foundation will implement research and educational programs in their respective countries and will also initiate their own national initiatives, according to the mission of the R3i.

The R3i Foundation will seek funding from multiple sources. Initial seed funding was provided by Solvay Pharmaceuticals.

Initial research and education programs focus on extent of residual vascular risk

The initial R3i research program involves two worldwide epidemiological surveys which aim to quantify the full extent of residual macro- and microvascular risk associated with atherogenic dyslipidemia in patients with heart disease and/or type 2 diabetes receiving current standards of care.

Additionally, this research will generate hypotheses about the role of lipid abnormalities such as atherogenicity of serum triglycerides and atheroprotection of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) in the future management of residual vascular risk.

The R3i in its commitment to education has already begun to develop educational tool kits including a resource slide kit and a dedicated website including a CME-accredited program. This will facilitate live web seminars (webinars) allowing physicians to interact and communicate with each other across the globe.

For Notes to Editors, details of the Board of Trustees and the International Steering Committee, countries where R3i national organizations have been or are in the process of being established and references please go to the R3i website: http://www.r3i.org/

The website contains information on the members, the mission, the research and the education programs. It also features links to various resources discussing residual vascular risk.
