University of Kentucky cardiologist to run huge nationwide study

Cardiologist came to the University of Kentucky from the Clinic in response to big money. “The study will look at four drugs that work against platelets and other clotting agents, to prevent the formation of blood clots” and act like “super aspirins” to thin blood during stenting operations. The study involves $35 million, 8000 patients, and 200 hospitals.

Looks like the rush to be a star in the hospital cardiology game continues to heat up.
