Have you suffered a heart attack?

If so, did you know...   Even though your doctor may have you on an aggressive treatment plan, your risk of having a second heart attack or suffering a stroke may still be HIGH. This increased risk may be related to high levels of inflammation in your blood vessels.

What is CIRT?

CIRT, is a randomized trial. This means, half of all participants will receive an active study drug and half will receive an inactive study drug know as placebo. The study medication is a widely used anti-inflammatory therapy for rheumatoid arthritis with a well documented safety profile.

Main Goal

To see if reducing inflammation can lower your risk of having a second heart attack, a stroke, or dying from heart disease.

Am I eligible?

You may be eligible to participate, if you have had a heart attack in the past 5 years and you have been diagnosed with either diabetes or metabolic syndrome.

Choosing to participate

If you choose to participate in CIRT, you will be followed for up to 5 years. During that period, you will receive all of your usual medical care. Additionally, you will receive special calendar packs which contain the study medications and you will be closely monitored by the study team for safety.

For more information, please discuss CIRT with your physician or contact us...
