Do you have peripheral arterial disease? Do your legs ache when you walk due to arterial blockages? Emory University is conducting a study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to examine whether a drug can improve circulation in legs with arterial blockages by stimulating growth of new blood vessels. Suitable subjects will be required to undergo exercise testing and other tests over a six-month study period and will be compensated for their participation. For more information, click here, or call 404-712-7847.
