Patients experiencing high normal blood pressure (HNBP), a precursor to hypertension, may benefit from early treatment with pharmacological therapy, according to new research presented today at the American College of Cardiology's 55th Annual Scientific Session.

Clopidogrel and aspirin combination fails to show long term beneficial affects in stable vascular patients
While the CHARISMA trial (Clopidogrel for High Atherothrombotic Risk and Ischemic Stabilization, Management and Avoidance) results have shown no benefit overall of the combination of Clopidogrel and aspirin in the long term in stable vascular patients, and some indication of harm in patients in primary prevention, the ESC would like to remind patients that dual antiplatelet therapy is an essential, approved and recommended therapy for one year in patients post ACS without ST-segment elevation, and for at least six months post stenting.

Ground-breaking heart stem cell trial (REGENERATE) now underway
Doctors at Barts and The London NHS Trust have launched the UK’s first large-scale clinical trial designed to find out if a patient’s own stem cells can be used to treat heart disease. The ground-breaking research, which is being funded by the Heart Cells Foundation charity, will involve 700 patients over the next four years. The trial is made up of three randomised-controlled studies. The first study will involve 300 patients whose hearts are failing because of heart disease or a previous heart attack. The second study will involve 200 patients whose hearts are failing specifically because of dilated cardiomyopathy – a heart muscle disorder. The third study will involve 200 patients who have just had a heart attack.
