Excerpt

Angiogenesis represents the formation of new capillaries by cellular outgrowth from existing microvessels1 and occurs as part of the natural healing process following acute ischemic injury. Non-invasive evaluation of the angiogenic process following myocardial infarction (MI) has been shown in multiple pre-clinical and clinical studies to predict post-MI remodeling and development of heart failure. In 2015, the American Heart Association published a statement regarding the state-of-the-art methods for evaluation of angiogenesis, which include the use of radiotracers for evaluation of integrin activation.2

Keynote webinar | Spotlight on medication adherence

Medication non-adherence is a major barrier to effective healthcare delivery; half of all patients do not follow their doctor’s recommendations or treatment plan.

Our experts explain the fundamentals with a practical discussion of how to manage non-adherence in two common scenarios: hypertension and asthma control.
