Top research highlighted in fight against heart disease and stroke
Date:12/21/2010

Research on reducing risks, improving medical treatment and improving lifestyle behaviors to fight the battle against heart disease and stroke are among the key scientific findings that make up this year's top cardiovascular and stroke research recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

The association has been compiling an annual list of the top 10 major advances in heart disease and stroke research since 1996. This year, for the first time, two separate lists have been compiled that highlight the top ten research advances in each respective area.

"We have come far in the past decade, reducing heart disease deaths by more than 27 percent and stroke deaths by more than 44 percent," said Ralph Sacco, M.D., president of the AHA and chairman at the department of neurology for the Miller School of Medicine at University of Miami. "But we know there is still much to be done in improving the lives of heart disease and stroke patients and more importantly, in preventing these devastating diseases in the first place. Scientific research will help us lead the way. "

Highlights in 2010 noted by the association include (in no ranking order):

Top Ten Advances in Cardiovascular Research in 2010

1. Tailoring treatment for people with diabetes to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease

More than 17 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes, and heart disease death rates are two to four times higher for them compared to people without diabetes. New research from the ACCORD Study Group offers insight into specific treatments that can reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The first study found that aggressive blood pressure control does not reduce CVD risk in people with type 2 diabetes at high risk for CVD. In a second study, a combination therapy with a statin plus a fibrate was no better at reducing risk than a statin alone in patients with type 2 diabetes at high risk
