World Heart Day today!

Currently, cardiovascular disease cause the deaths of some 17 million people each year, which represents nearly one third of all deaths in the world. These figures will probably grow in the years to come, especially in the "developing" world. The incidence of coronary heart disease in these territories will increase due to increased life expectancy and the growing prevalence of features typical of an inadequate life style (smoking, introduction of "fast food", less physical activity, etc).

TRAIN-HEART aims to develop new cutting-edge therapies to cure ischemic heart failure, also known as heart problems caused by narrowed heart arteries.
