120 over 80 is a healthy blood pressure. If the levels are higher, there is a risk of cardiovascular disease, which can also affect many other organs. Preventing this and better recognizing and treating cardiovascular diseases is the central concern of researchers at the German Center for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK).
In a conversation with press officer Christine Vollgraf, DZHK researchers reveal how they aim to achieve this goal. After all, despite great successes in recent decades, cardiovascular diseases are among the most common causes of death worldwide - including in Germany - and the trend is still rising.
