Bayer   For a supple heart

It's an insidious condition, and one that makes a short walk seem like a marathon or a quick shower a barely manageable challenge. Many people are completely unaware that they are suffering from chronic heart failure. But even with drug treatment, the disease can shorten the life expectancy of patients to just a few years. Increasing numbers of people are affected by this severe cardiovascular disease, which is generally caused by a myocardial infarction. It is characterized by gross enlargement of the heart and a reduced ventricular volume.

New successes have recently been achieved in the treatment of this dangerous heart disease: scientists at Bayer HealthCare have developed an active ingredient that supports the weakened heart and can markedly improve the prognosis for patients suffering from the cardiovascular disease. Recent tests indicate that it can prevent pathological restructuring of the cardiac muscle, keeping the heart muscle supple.
