Every year in the United States, more than 1.5 million people will suffer from either a heart attack or a stroke. This eBriefing explores the links between chronic inflammation and these conditions and discusses how strategies to resolve inflammation could lead to new therapies.

In This eBriefing, You'll Learn

  • Recent clinical data linking chronic inflammation to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of heart attack and stroke
  • How failure to resolve chronic inflammation promotes the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease
  • New approaches that modulate the resolution of inflammation and have the potential to provide improved treatments for this widespread condition
