Cholesterol is a waxy substance that's found in the fats (lipids) in your blood. While your body needs cholesterol to continue building healthy cells, having high cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease.
When you have high cholesterol, you may develop fatty deposits in your blood vessels. Eventually, these deposits make it difficult for enough blood to flow through your arteries. Your heart may not get as much oxygen-rich blood as it needs, which increases the risk of a heart attack. Decreased blood flow to your brain can cause a stroke1.
Those who suffer from high cholesterol are aware of the impact it can put on an individual’s life. They also know the need for innovative and more effective therapies to fight high cholesterol and make the lives of high cholesterol suffers easier each day.
If you suffer from high cholesterol, you may qualify for a research study assessing the safety and efficacy of an investigational treatment for this condition.
Qualified participants will be compensated for time and travel. Study medications and study related care are provided at no cost, without the need for health insurance.
