The Barts Cardiovascular Clinical Trials Unit (CVCTU) was set up to support and deliver clinical trials in the cardiovascular speciality and support local investigators working within Barts Health NHS Trust, in particular, the Barts Heart Centre, and Queen Mary University of London.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack).
We care about patient-focused health outcomes and we want to find ways to improve them. Our trials and investigations help us to do that. We support this research by leading and supporting clinical trials that seek to find answers.
