Daily Four-Drug Combo Pill Halves Heart Disease Risk: Study
Date:5/26/2011

y have limited access to health care, and where low cost is a priority.

"Each of the individual components employed in the polypill are generic medications and available in the U.S. for $40 a year each -- that's $160 for a year supply for all four medications," Fonarow noted. "If integrated into a single pill the expected cost of such a polypill would be even lower," he said.

According to Rodgers, the polypill is expected to cost even less than that -- about $2 a month in poorer countries. And since it is only one daily pill, compliance should be higher compared to when a patient needs to take several pills per day.

According to the report, this polypill will be available in India soon and elsewhere within a few years. Around the world, about 80 percent of all deaths from heart disease, stroke and diabetes happen in low- or middle-income countries, the researchers noted.
