Welcome to Westside Center for Clinical Research


Clinical trials move medicine forward. Sponsors, such as pharmaceutical companies, governments and foundations fund medical research. Patients who participate in clinical research receive many advantages including treatment at no cost, access to expertise and resources such as expensive tests. Research volunteers shape the future and can have fun while helping others and themselves.

 

As a premier clinical research organization, we have conducted more than 2,500 clinical trials over 20 years and have worldwide recognition for providing patients access to cutting edge medical research. If you have a medical issue and want a research solution, or if you are a healthy volunteer, come visit our center and learn more. One of our experts will be happy to evaluate you.

Preventing A Heart Attack

What causes a heart attack?
A heart attack (myocardial infarction) means that blood flow to the heart muscle has been decreased enough to cause damage to the heart muscle.  Some causes of blocked blood flow include blood clots, cholesterol build up, and rupture of plaque within the blood vessel.  For those who have already suffered a heart attack, it is important to reduce the risk of recurrent attacks. Research has shown that there are several steps that can be taken to help reduce the risk of recurrent heart attacks.  
 
Proven things you can do to prevent heart attacks
•Lower cholesterol  
•Lower triglycerides
•Lower blood pressure 
•Stop smoking and avoid second hand smoke
•Eat fish
•Increase physical activity as allowed by your doctor.  Inactive people have nearly twice the risk of heart disease as those who are active.
•Talk with your doctor about medicines that can decrease blood clotting
 
Medications that can reduce risk of heart attack
•Cholesterol lowering medication, which include statins and non-statins
•Triglyceride lowering medications
•Medications that decrease inflammation
 
Current research is underway to study improving health after a heart attack 
•Weight loss:  Heart attack is three times higher in those who are obese than in those who are lean.  
•New medications for those with unique cholesterol metabolizing problems.
•Anti-inflammatory medications targeting inflammation in blood vessels.
 
At ENCORE Research Group we have clinical research studies for many of the risk factors mentioned above. Participating in a research study can help keep you motivated on your journey to better health.
