NHLBI research highlights at American Heart Association's scientific sessions

At this year's American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions in Dallas, scientists supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health will present the latest research findings, including studies on women and heart disease, the extent of metabolic syndrome among African Americans in the Jackson Heart Study, and the impact of sodium reduction on the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Note that NHLBI will be issuing a separate release on a late breaking clinical trial presentation on November 15 on "The Effects of Carbohydrate, Protein, and Fat Intake on Cardiovascular Risk Factors: Main Results from the OmniHeart Feeding Study."

News stories are embargoed until papers are presented or a news conference or poster session begins. To reach NHLBI spokespeople, call the NHLBI Communications Office at 301-496-4236.
