Imagine a world without heart attacks and strokes. That is the vision of the Institute of Arteriology (IOA), a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the science of Arteriology (the study of arteries). Donations are fully tax-deductible. Click here to download the IOA brochure.
The IOA’s goal is to harness the latest science of arterial inflammation to help people live well, free of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which kills more Americans than all forms of cancer combined, often from heart attacks or strokes.
To protect your brain and heart, the IOA’s approach is designed to keep your more than 60,000 miles of blood vessels healthy, using an integrative health method that includes, in part, genetic testing, lifestyle changes, oral health and a comprehensive management program carried through in partnership with your medical provider.
Two major initiatives anchor the IOA’s mission:
- A longitudinal study
In collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Cardiology Department, the IOA is establishing a registry of patients. Their cardiovascular risk will be assessed at baseline and managed with a set of predefined interventions.The goal is to show that cardiovascular events (such as heart attacks or strokes) can be substantially reduced or even eliminated for many patients through systematic monitoring and optimal management of their arterial health. This multi-generational registry and study will track the patients’ outcomes to identify the most effective management.
- A peer-reviewed journal featuring the latest science on arterial health.
Now in development, the peer-reviewed Journal of Arteriology™ will provide a translational platform to evaluate leading-edge science, studies and other discoveries about arterial health.Aimed at keeping clinicians on the scientific forefront, so they can rapidly incorporate the latest evidence into practice, the journal will also build a multi-specialty community of medical, dental and allied wellness practitioners working together to end the CVD epidemic.
