Ongoing Trials

There are ongoing trials for newer possible therapies in treating coronary artery disease. There are very accepted guidelines and treatments and it is a very treatable condition but there are many new investigative trials looking at further, newer treatments. This includes possible stem cell therapy. It's very interesting to note that there have been over 60 genes that have been implicated in coronary artery disease and there are many trials going on right now that are looking at these genes and possible stem cell therapy in order to target these genes in order to either prevent or help treat this disease. These trials are very, very early in their stages and there's not too much data yet, but there is great potential in them.
