Regarding the cardiovascular polypill, with Iryna Pishel’s lab as we had some extra aged female mice who were otherwise not being used for science, we’ve translated the ongoing polypill clinical trial in the UK (http://ift.tt/QKRqxg) into a mouse survival test. And we’ve obtained… a reduced lifespan (http://ift.tt/1zjgjaa). Comparing mice and humans is here probably not serious (the blood compositions are very different; also we’ve used standard mouse-human equivalent doses but perhaps mice react differently to some of the drugs) but we shouldn’t take for granted that the polypill human clinical trial will end up showing positive results.
