Help us explore a potential
way to protect your heart
Has your doctor said that you have
a high risk of heart disease?
If so, you may be able to take part in a clinical research study
We are currently recruiting patients for a clinical research study looking at a concentrate
of omega- 3 free fatty acids to see whether it can help to decrease the risk of serious heart
problems in people with high blood triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood that can raise
your risk of heart disease) and low levels of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol
(HDL-C; the “good” cholesterol). If you take part, you will be asked to take
either the concentrate of omega- 3 free fatty acids (made from fish oil)
or a placebo, which contains corn oil, once a day for 3–5 years.
You may be able to take part in
the STRENGTH Trial if you:
• are 18 years of age or older
• take a statin medication but still
have high triglyceride levels
• have at least one risk factor for
heart disease, such as:
– a history of heart problems
– type 1 or 2 diabetes
– high blood pressure or taking
a blood pressure medication
– being a regular smoker.
A study doctor will need to review
your previous medications and
perform additional assessments
during one or more screening visits
at the study center to ensure that
this study is right for you.
Taking part in this study will involve
regular visits to the study center,
where your heart and general health
will be monitored closely by a team
of doctors and nurses. All study
medications and study-related health
assessments will be provided at no
cost to you.
If you would like more information,
please contact the study center using
the details below. We look forward
to hearing from you.
