We provide several services which are available to other departments in QMUL and external users.
The Polypill Prevention Programme is a preventive medicine service to reduce the risk of first heart attacks and strokes. The service implements the Polypill approach in which a combination of commonly prescribed medications, that reduce several cardiovascular risk factors are administered together to individuals above a specified age without clinical cardiovascular disease and without selecting them on the basis of risk factors such as cholesterol or blood pressure.
The Barts Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) is a UKCRC registered clinical trials unit providing support and oversight for trials in a number of areas across the medical school. It includes the Cancer Prevention Trials Unit which runs trials in therapeutic cancer prevention and cancer screening for the CCP and more widely.
