TCT Late Breaking Trials Announced

Groundbreaking clinical trials include latest data in interventional cardiology

Oct. 1, 2013 – The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) announced the late breaking trials and first report investigations that will be presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2013 scientific symposium in late October. TCT, the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine, will take place Oct. 28 – Nov. 1, 2013 at The Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif.          

Clinical trial data and first report investigations presented at TCT often direct the course of patient therapies. The studies selected will shed new light on the effectiveness and safety of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies and devices that show potential to treat or prevent cardiovascular disease, one of the leading causes of death globally.

Late-breaking clinical trials and first report investigations will be presented in the Main Arena and highlighted during press conferences scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 29; Wednesday, Oct. 30; and Thursday, Oct. 31.

This year, TCT will also mark 25 years of innovation with a day-long look back at the significant contributions that interventional cardiology has made to patients with cardiovascular disease, as well as an inspiring look ahead at new therapies being developed for the not too distant future.
