Saint Joseph’s Research Institute (SJRI) and Georgia State University are collaborating on a clinical study aimed at exploring differences between men and women suffering from chronic angina. Nicolas Chronos, MD, president and chief scientific officer at SJRI and Laura P. Kimble, Ph.D., associate professor, Byrdine F. Lewis School of Nursing, Georgia State University are the study’s principal investigators. Saint Joseph’s Hospital is the clinical site for the study.
“Research suggests that women suffer greater pain from chronic angina (CAD) than men and women may perceive and manage their symptoms differently,” says Dr. Chronos.
“This study will provide essential data to tailor gender-specific interventions about angina symptom management,’ says Dr. Kimble.
