The best treatment for cardiovascular disease is its prevention. Millions of patients use specific medicines which, across the board, prove to be very effective, but whose individual effects vary widely. In actual practice, translating research results to the individual patient in the consultation room is difficult. The search for customised treatment therefore, would benefit greatly from a tool that could assist in accomplishing exactly that. U-Prevent provides an insight into the effects of medication and lifestyle on life expectancy.
