Welcome to the ASCEND study website. ASCEND is a clinical trial which aimed to find out whether aspirin and/or omega-3 fatty acids (fish oils) reduced the risk of heart attacks and strokes in people with diabetes who did not already have any existing problems with their heart or blood circulation, when they started the study. 

We would like to say a big "Thank you!" to all our ASCEND participants for your ongoing support for the study.
