Resetting IMPROVE-IT Countdown Clock At Left -- To 97 Days, From 109 Days!


Dr. Larry Husten has the scoop at Forbes -- IMPROVE-IT will be revealed on November 17, 2014.

Finally. So I was off by a few days (I was guessing December 2014); not bad though, on a six-year horizon. Here's a bit -- do go read it all:

. . . .Results of the eagerly-awaited and highly controversial IMPROVE-IT trial are finally going to be revealed. The American Heart Association has announced that the trial will be presented by Chris Cannon on November 17 at 11:51 AM (central time) in Chicago at the group’s annual scientific sessions . IMPROVE-IT compared the effect on cardiovascular outcomes of the statin simvastatin with Vytorin (the combination of simvastatin and ezetimibe, manufactured by Merck) in more than 18,000 patients with acute coronary syndromes. . . .


We will report on that -- yep, for certain I'll pop over there, for the live press conference -- on 11.17.2014. I was there the morning ENHANCE clanked, also in Chicago, on Sunday, March 30, 2008, too. I personally think this is likely to be the end of the line -- for this war horse.

Will see 'em tomorrow! Hot outta' Pensacola!:

. . .Chicagoans eager to see the U.S. Navy Blue Angels perform their famed daredevil stunts at the air show this weekend can catch the military jets a few days early when they fly over the city for a photo shoot Wednesday..

Six pilots are scheduled to fly from Pensacola, Fla., and arrive over Chicago’s lakefront around 2 p.m. for the shoot, one of about 10 the squadron does each year. The jets will form the group’s signature delta formation in front of the city’s skyline while traveling at about 250 knots — around 290 mph. . . .
