This month, we introduce a new condition center on www.PharmacyTimes.com covering cardiovascular health. Visit it for the latest news and research on conditions such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Prevention and treatment of these conditions are extremely important given the toll they take on the nation’s health and finances. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, and coronary heart disease alone costs the country $108.9 billion per year.

Topics covered on the new condition center include:
  • A finding that patients who received a personalized letter from their doctor describing their cardiovascular risk factors were more likely to start taking statins.
  • A study showing that a ban on smoking in all workplaces including restaurants and bars was associated with a dramatic drop in heart attack rates.
  • Research that blood pressure control in the United States has improved greatly, primarily due to increased use of multiple antihypertensive agents.
