Heart Disease Treatment Breakthrough
Date:6/1/2009

GATESHEAD, England, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading GP has welcomed the launch of a potentially revolutionary heart disease treatment that offers people around the world the hope of combating the killer disease.

GP Dr Rob Hicks said the launch of Ateronon, the natural supplement developed by Cambridge scientists, was a huge breakthrough in the treatment of heart disease related illnesses that can cause heart attacks and stroke.

Dozens of research studies have shown that lycopene - found in the skins of ripe tomatoes - has the capacity to significantly reduce the build up of plaque in the arteries that can lead to heart attacks and stroke.

Lycopene is the potent antioxidant isolated for its health-promoting properties from the Mediterranean diet (http://www.ateronon.com/).

Until now, scientists have been unable to find a way of modifying lycopene molecules so they can be readily absorbed into the human body.

Researchers from Cambridge Theranostics Limited (CTL), a biotech spin-out company of Cambridge University, have now proved they have done it with their new Ateronon compound.

Dr Hicks said: "If you think that this can reduce the damage to the arteries, which is the damage that ends up causing heart attacks and strokes - this can potentially extend life but also saving lives on a global basis.

"The potential impact is enormous - we might see a fall in the number of people suffering heart attacks, strokes and other problems relating to arterial damage and the clogging up of the arteries. That has to be welcomed," he added.

Results from their early trials involving 150 people with heart disease were made public for the first time at the British Cardiovascular Society annual conference in London on Monday (1st June).
