Merck’s Focus on Cardiovascular Disease
Merck has a long history of making an impact in cardiovascular disease. More than 60 years ago, we introduced our first cardiovascular therapy – and our scientific efforts to understand cardiovascular related disorders have continued. Cardiovascular disease continues to be one of the most serious health challenges of the 21st century. Approximately 18 million people across the globe die every year, and in the United States one person dies every 36 seconds from cardiovascular disease.
Advancements in developing treatments for cardiovascular disease can make an impactful difference for patients, and there is still much more work to be done. At Merck we strive for scientific excellence and innovation in all stages of research, from discovery through approval and afterwards. We continue to build on our history of innovative therapies in cardiovascular disease to help increase scientific understanding and help patients around the world. We work with experts throughout the cardiovascular community to advance research that can help improve the lives of patients with cardiovascular risk.
For over 130 years, Merck, known as MSD outside of the United States and Canada, has been inventing for life, bringing forward medicines and vaccines for many of the world’s most challenging diseases in pursuit of our mission to save and improve lives. We demonstrate our commitment to patients and population health by increasing access to health care through far-reaching policies, programs and partnerships. Today, Merck continues to be at the forefront of research to prevent and treat diseases that threaten people and animals – including cancer, infectious diseases such as HIV and Ebola, and emerging animal diseases – as we aspire to be the premier research-intensive biopharmaceutical company in the world.
