According to a WHO estimate cardiovascular diseases take about 17.9 million lives each year globally. The statistic offers an insight into the utmost necessity of focused research in the field of cardiology. Cardiology, a branch of internal medicine, is the study and treatment of disorders of the heart and the blood vessels. The disorders in cardiology can range from coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, to birth conditions like congenital heart defects and progressive diseases like cardiomyopathy. Clinical trials in cardiology are carried out to ascertain whether a particular research methodology is effective in treatment of a heart condition.  Many biopharma companies study and evaluate and develop ground-breaking drugs and techniques to improve the lives of people with a wide range of heart ailments. The field attracts substantial research in its various subspecialities at Royal Research as well.
