Research

Through our cardiovascular research wing, we at Care For Heart are actively working towards developing new and effective treatments for the prevention and cure of cardiovascular disease.

Our role as a committed partner in fighting the debilitating and fatal effects of cardiac events and heart disease can be seen through our continued participation in innovative and path breaking studies in the discipline.

Currently, we are engaged in two major global study and cardiovascular clinical trials aimed at making valuable contributions to the? cardiovascular knowledge and improving the quality and effectiveness of cardiac care for our patients.
