CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HemoShear LLC, a leading developer of human-relevant systems for drug discovery and development, will present cardiovascular drug discovery insights from three separate studies at the annual American Heart Association's Atherosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology (ATVB) conference to be held in Lake Buena Vista, Florida on May 1-3, 2013. ATVB is the world's leading scientific conference focusing on advancement of scientific research in vascular diseases.

HemoShear's studies provide human-relevant data and models that are essential to de-risking development of new drug treatments and providing a flow of qualified new drug candidates. The studies that HemoShear will present at ATVB demonstrate several important findings for drug R&D decision-making: that certain types of HDL, the supposedly "good" cholesterol, can cause arterial inflammation; that HemoShear has created a model of atrial fibrillation-induced thrombosis for new drug discovery; and that GLP-1 drug metabolites are a promising strategy for improving vascular health.

Each study was funded by, and is being presented in collaboration with, major biopharmaceutical companies Merck, Lilly and Amgen in the course of supporting their drug discovery and development activities. The studies were conducted with HemoShear's unique translational science that provides insights into disease targets and disease conditions that are not obtainable by any other science.
