Report on 300 New Medicines in Development for Heart Disease and Stroke Released in Indianapolis

Today's news briefing featured Olympic gold medalist swimmer and Indiana University alum Mark Spitz, who suffers from high cholesterol.

The medicines in the report are being tested in human clinical trials or are awaiting approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

"In recent years, the development of effective medicines that control blood pressure and cholesterol has allowed us to better control the risk factors for cardiovascular events and has helped significantly cut deaths from heart disease and stroke," said Dr. J.

Many of the potential medicines use cutting-edge technologies and new approaches such as one that uses human stem cells to form new heart muscle and restore cardiac functioning, and another that is a gene therapy th
