Cardiovascular Drugs: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2010
Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of mortality worldwide, despite the declining rates of death since at least two decades. The disease is more prevalent in the developed part of the world than developing, though its incidence is growing in emerging economies. Leading risk factors for cardiovascular diseases include tobacco smoking, high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle.
The United States dominates the world cardiovascular drugs market as stated by the new market research report on cardiovascular drugs market.
