Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Studies

Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Studies are being conducted to find out whether taking investigational study medications will lower the risk of cardiovascular events, like heart attack and stroke, in people with a history of heart disease, stroke, peripheral artery disease (blocked arteries in the neck or legs), diabetes or other risk factors. Several different studies are enrolling participants and will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of medications aimed at treating high cholesterol or elevated blood sugar levels.
