For the 6.4 million Americans who suffer from angina — chest pain caused by a lack of blood flow to the heart muscle — new hope may be on the horizon. Doctors at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle are currently enrolling patients with severe untreatable angina, in a clinical trial that will help determine if an experimental gene transfer procedure can help patients grow new blood vessels.

Previous studies of the procedure in 1999 and 2000 showed promising results; 30 percent of the patients experienced complete elimination of anginal symptoms and 70 percent of the patients treated experienced significant improvement in their symptoms. To learn more about the study, or for information on how to enroll, call 1-877-9ANGINA.
