GISSI – Gruppo Italiano per lo Studio della Sopravvivenza nell’Infarto Miocardico
It is a product of the collaboration between the Mario Negri Institute and the Associazione Nazionale dei Medici Cardiologi Ospedalieri (ANMCO). Today it is considered one of the best-qualified research teams in the cardiovascular field. GISSI has produced a series of large-scale clinical trials (GISSI 1, GISSI 2, GISSI 3, GISSI Prevenzione), involving over 60,000 patients with myocardial infarction.
In the twenty years since GISSI was set up, its studies have been widely recognized by the international cardiology community and are considered a methodological landmark.
GISSI’s work has now spread from myocardial infarction to other cardiovascular pathologies with a wide impact, like heart failure and atrial fibrillation, on which large-scale clinical studies are now in progress.
