RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- PRA International, a leading Clinical Research Organization, will host an audio conference on strategies for successful cardiovascular (CV) drug development on 24 August 2010 at 11:30 am (EDT).

Dr. Kirchengast will discuss ways to prevent some of the expensive failures that pharmaceutical companies experience during late-stage CV drug development.

His wide range of development experience encompasses antiarrhythmics, antithrombotics, antihypertensives, antihyperlipidemics, heart failure therapeutics, and vascularly active and cardioprotective drugs.
