ANN ARBOR -- A new study---led by a leading University of Michigan heart researcher and made public today by the New England Journal of Medicine---shows that adding an established medication to standard treatment regimens for heart failure reduced deaths by 30 percent. While the article will not appear in the journal until later this year, the life-saving potential of the information caused the editorial staff to post the findings on its Internet site, http://www.nejm.org.
The above story is based on materials provided by University Of Michigan. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
