The Prominent Study


Do you have complications of type 2 diabetes? Coronary artery disease?

We are currently looking for volunteers to take part in the PROMINENT study.  This is a study for people with type 2 diabetes and elevated triglycerides (at type of fat in the blood),

Although many people take medications to lower their cholesterol, they remain at risk of developing serious heart problems. Therefore, the PROMINENT Study is researching a potential new medication to find out if it can prevent heart attacks and other heart-related problems by lowering triglycerides and raising the amount of ‘good’ cholesterol (known as HDL).
