Disease Number one, worldwide: arteriosclerosis!
The drug provided by PharmACT AG is named „BelACT®“ (A- Ateriosclerosis, C- Clean, T- Therapy) and will change the treatment of cardiovascular diseases on a worldwide basis.
Arteriosclerosis is characterized especially by an accumulation of cholesterol containing fatty deposits (plaques) in the inner layers of the arteries. With increasing plaque volume the lumen of the arteries will decrease and the blood flow will be impaired. If the coronary blood vessels (coronary arteries) are involved characteristic chest pain is his consequence (angina pectoris). Despite the relatively high success rates neither the balloon angioplasty nor the arterectomy or stents are perfect.
