Coronary Heart Disease Research

Researchers have attempted to induce a human-like coronary artery disease in at least 20 species, including kangaroos and pelicans, without “success”.  Advancements in the areas of prevention, diagnosis and treatment have relied on epidemiology, such as the Framingham Heart Study, autopsies, in vitro research, clinical observation, and surgical techniques tested in human cadavers.
