Beating Heart Disease
Beating Heart Disease
On the pulse of destroying heart disease with the latest innovative therapies.
Nicole knew firsthand how threatening heart disease could be—her mother lived with the condition and died from it at the age of 57. But when Nicole was diagnosed with the disease a few weeks after her mother passed, she was in complete denial. That denial ultimately led to her condition worsening. Then Nicole got tough, and searched relentlessly for answers. She began working closely with her physician and a nutritionist. She took medication regularly, watched her diet and began exercising. Now, five years after her diagnosis, Nicole is unstoppable. She’s exercising more and getting stronger. While it hasn’t always been easy, Nicole makes progress every day. All in effort to defy heart disease.
RESEARCHERS MAKING AN IMPACT
Paul, a cardiovascular researcher, spends his days unearthing novel approaches for evaluating potential new medicines. His focus is centered around genetics, specifically how disease-causing genes relate to and cause heart disease. Through this research, Paul and his team have made significant strides in grasping how our genes can predispose us to certain diseases. As a result, Paul’s lifework has unlocked life-changing therapies, ones that help patients fight heart disease and other serious health challenges better. When asked about his work, Paul gets extremely excited. And for good reason. “Recent technological breakthroughs, including in the area of heart disease …are actually changing the lives of patients. We are living through a revolution in how we understand and treat human disease using genomics, and I think we’re going to see a huge explosion in that area in the next five years.”
New breakthroughs are being discovered that are helping researchers move closer to finding a cure.
