Dr. Prediman K. Shah discusses the leading-edge heart disease research taking place at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Prediman's research could lead to a vaccine that prevents heart disease in the same way that vaccines for infectious diseases have eradicated diseases like polio and small pox. The research is based on the idea that because heart disease is extremely prevalent, an antigen based vaccine could slow or prevent the buildup of plaque.

Approval from the FDA is the next step for human trials to begin.
