Quotes

...Kinneret Savitsky, BioLineRx's CEO. "1.5 million cases of myocardial infarction occur annually in the U S alone, many of which result in irreversible pathological cardiac remodeling. Pre-clinical studies show that BL-1040 is efficacious at preventing cardiac remodeling following an acute myocardial infarction. The pre-clinical studies, along with certain encouraging trend data in the Phase 1/2 study, raise the hope that we will be able to help preserve cardiac function for millions of potential patients around the world. We are eagerly awaiting completion of the PRESERVATION I trial being carried out by our partner Bellerophon, which is expected in mid-2015.”"
...Management is based on guidelines from the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC), "but they are based mainly on expert opinion, which is a low level of evidence" Dr Wasowicz pointed out
"The findings suggest that the tiny, silent strokes are likely much more common than physicians previously appreciated, and these strokes are likely a cause of the age-related white matter disease that can lead to dementia. We don't yet know whether these small strokes are responsible only some or most of the white matter disease seen in older patients. But in those where it is the cause, the detection of white matter disease on brain imaging should trigger physicians to treat patients aggressively when managing stroke risk factors such as high blood pressure , diabetes , high cholesterol , cigarette smoking and lack of exercise not only to prevent further strokes, but also to reduce the development of cognitive impairment over time."
However, Menasche said: "This will have to be validated clinically. Hence the fact that our patients will be fitted with an ICD [implantable cardioverter defibrillator] to record all the possible arrhythmic events."
