Medical advances against cardiovascular diseases (CVD) represent one of the most successful health battlefields of the past century. In the United States alone, deaths from heart attack and stroke have fallen dramatically since 1950 due to improved care, reduced smoking, and better health management after an incident.
Despite this progress, CVD remains the number one killer in the world. More people die from heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, cerebrovascular, and related disorders than any other-nearly a third of all deaths from illness. Some 80% of those deaths occur in developed countries, meaning that as the world’s population ages and nations become more industrialized, CVD will remain the leading cause of mortality for many years to come.
Medical researchers continue to pursue new CVD treatments with urgency. CVD is a complicated field, with multiple conditions and causes. We understand that complexity, that is why MPI Research offers a comprehensive set of research models fully integrated with test methods, analytics and state-of-the-art surgical facilities. Our Scientists, Research Associates, and Study Directors collaborate seamlessly across functions and with Sponsors to deliver precise, accurate, and fast results.
MPI Research also brings critical scientific support for discovery research in cardiology and other therapeutic areas, including safety pharmacology, dose formulation analysis, bioanalysis, immunology, clinical pathology, and anatomic pathology.
Helping our Sponsors succeed is at the heart of what we do – because your success is our success.
