Carnosine for Peripheral Vascular Disease
- Years funded:
- 2019 - 2020
Carnosine is a safe over-the-counter dipeptide commonly used to improve exercise performance.
In patients with peripheral vascular disease, exercise improves symptoms and walking ability, but is often painful.
We will test if carnosine is synergistic with exercise and can improve symptoms and walking ability in these patients.
This has important clinical and public health implications, offering safe and affordable treatment of peripheral vascular disease by already available means.
