Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular diseases or heart diseases are the most common cause of death worldwide. It is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels (arteries and veins). 

Heart disease is a lifelong condition. But there is much that one can do to control the risk factors for heart disease, prevent a heart attack, and increase the chances for a long and vital life. Unlike many other chronic medical conditions, cardiovascular disease is treatable and reversible, even after a long history of disease.  Risk factors that lead to cardiovascular diseases are family history, smoking, high blood pressure or hypertension, diabetes and physical inactivity.

We are leading the world in discovering and developing medicines that help our patients overcome such major cardiovascular risk factors including treating high blood pressure (hypertension), angina, blocked arteries of the heart, and lowering “bad” cholesterol.

We also actively promote healthier lifestyles to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases through education and special events, to encourage people to be more aware of their heart.
