Everything you need to know

As one of the largest and most recognised clinical study organisations in the world, Synexus provides a friendly relaxed environment where you have the opportunity to help others and maybe also yourself. A clinical trial offers an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.

Several factors can enhance your risk of heart disease, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, poor diet, inactivity, smoking, being overweight, alcohol, stress or a family history of cardiac disease. Elevated low-density lipoprotein associated cholesterol (LDL-C) is a major risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. Lowering LDL-C has been shown to reduce the risk of death or heart attack.
