NYU Langone Medical Center Receives $84M NIH Grant to Study Coronary Artery Disease Management

After receiving an $84 million grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, the Cardiovascular Clinical Research Center at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York will be studying two management strategies for patients with coronary artery disease, according to a hospital news release.

The trial will study 8,000 patients with stable ischemic heart disease and moderate to sever ischemia, the release said. The strategies to be investigated are whether an early invasive strategy with cardiac catheterization followed by revascularization and optimal medical therapy produces better results than a simply using OMT. It will also assess whether the invasive strategy improves "angina-related quality of life."
