Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death and are projected to remain so. An estimated 18 million people die from CVDs every year, representing 30 % of all global deaths, and heart attacks and stroke account for more than half of these deaths. Risk factors for heart disease and stroke include raised blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels, smoking, inadequate alimentary habits  or physical inactivity. Yet, molecular mechanisms underlying major CVDs are not completely understood, and treatments are today far from being totally satisfactory.
