Heart disease is a broad term which includes several more specific heart conditions. The most common heart condition in the United States is coronary heart disease, which leads to heart attack or other serious conditions. Other conditions which are included in heart disease are Aortic Aneurysms, Arrhythmias, Cardiomyopathy, and Peripheral Arterial Disease.

"At Pfizer, we are looking beyond our groundbreaking work in cholesterol control and are making advances in understanding those other risk factors that can lead to heart disease," said Dr. Steven Ryder, therapeutic leader for cardiovascular medicine at Pfizer. "Our current and future portfolio of medicines focuses on the control of risk factors inherent in smoking, diet, physical activity, and Type 2 diabetes. We are committed to playing a more significant role in providing solutions for patients that lead to better health and disease prevention."

Because of advances in medicine and technology, people with heart disease are living longer, more productive lives than ever before. However, global trends like obesity, smoking, rising diabetes, high blood pressure, and poor lifestyle undermine many of the improvements that have been made toward the prevention of heart disease. According to the World Health Organization, physical inactivity and unhealthy diet are main risk factors which increase individual risks to cardiovascular diseases.
