“The ability to deliver therapeutics site specifically,safely and efficiently remains a major challenge for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Additional drug delivery hurdles will need to be overcome as pharma companies and medical device manufacturers target specific areas of the vasculature. These advances will help to develop a new generation of medicines and devices to tackle the world’s leading killer.”

Dr Cheryl Barton

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the world, killing almost 17 million people each year. Types of CVD include coronary heart disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia and stroke - stroke is now the third leading cause of death, and the leading cause of disability in the western world (source: American Heart Association, AHA). Each year these conditions account for almost half of all deaths and are a tremendous financial burden on the healthcare system estimated to cost the US around US$560 billion annually (Source: Buxton, 2007).

The following report summarizes some of the latest developments in CV drug development and devices and analyzes some of the most promising solutions which drug delivery companies and device manufacturers are providing in order to address this unmet clinical need.
