Online Seminar synopsis

In recent years, brachial artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD) as a non-invasive assessment of endothelial function has become widely popular. FMD is a powerful tool yielding important information on cardiovascular function. Despite its seemingly easy conduct, many have failed to show reliable data. At Profil, we have successfully established a protocol enabling the measurement of reliable and reproducible FMD data. This webinar will focus on (i) FMD and its value for cardiometabolic research, (ii) its methadological pitfalls and (iii)  how Profil has been able to set up a state of the art FMD research facility with defined standards of quality control.

This online seminar is perfect for anyone who is involved in conducting clinical trials with a focus on endothelial function or who wants to learn more about methods assessing endothelial function.
