Free cardiovascular assessment
Have you, or someone you know, had a cardiovascular event (stroke, heart attack, Peripheral Arterial Disease) within the last 10 years?
Where: Preston and Manchester (Rochdale)
When: October 2020
Trial focus: Cardiovascular assessment
Panthera Biopartners are looking for people who have had a cardiovascular event, within the last 10 years, to take part in a free cardiovascular assessment . This could be a heart attack, stroke, or Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).
This part of a pre-screening research programme which will test for your cardiovascular risk factors e.g hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol, and high Lipoprotein A level. An elevated level of Lipoprotein (a) is recognised as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), for which there is currently no recognised treatment.
What does the cardiovascular assessment include?
As part of your visit, we will check your blood pressure, height and weight, BMI, and blood cholesterol test. All your results will be available immediately.
This is a great opportunity to get a cardiovascular assessment, as well as helping to advance research into heart conditions. Over a quarter of all deaths in the UK are caused by heart diseases, so it’s important to keep your heart healthy – as well as potentially being part of ground-breaking research.
Why get involved?
Looking after your heart has numerous benefits, not only for your health and well-being, but also for reducing the strain on the NHS. With current COVID-19 restrictions, the NHS is under more pressure than ever, which means routine checks and treatments have been postponed.
Our cardiovascular assessment not only gives you peace of mind, but also ensures we’re all doing our part to reduce the impact on the NHS.
7.4 million people within the UK live with a cardiovascular condition, such as heart disease or circulatory problems. Nearly 170,000 die each year from heart diseases – and the total annual cost for healthcare for these diseases alone is £9 billion.
By having a cardiovascular assessment and protein test with Panthera Biopartners, you could potentially be contributing to the future development of better treatments and medication for cardiovascular conditions.
In order to participate in this clinical trial, you will need to be 18 – 80 years old and have had one of the following cardiovascular events:
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
