Heart Disease and Anti-cholesterol DrugsStreaming Video - 2005
Drugs that can cure cardiovascular disease, rather than simply slowing cholesterol buildup, are currently in development. This program examines the history of anti-cholesterol drug production, as well as current biochemical research that might lead to the eradication of heart attacks and strokes. Describing scientific studies of isolated populations-most notably the inhabitants of Limone, Italy, where a genetic mutation has produced a natural cure for arterial plaque accumulation-the video also investigates the extraordinary level of competition that exists among pharmaceutical companies racing to create lifesaving chemical compounds.
