Overview

Do you have type 2 diabetes? Are you concerned about your heart risk?

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 (a type of fat in the blood).

Although many people take medication to lower their cholesterol, they remain at a risk of developing serious heart problems.

This study is researching a potential 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).
