The Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study and Its Impact

The Impact of NIH Research

Francis Collins, MD, PhD, Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently provided testimony before the House Subcommittee on Labor, HHS, Education Appropriations. An excerpt of Dr. Collins' testimony follows: "There is much good news to report about the science that we support. NIH has been advancing our understanding of health and disease for more than a century; scientific and technological breakthroughs generated by NIH-supported research are behind much of the gains our country has enjoyed in health and longevity. For example, deaths from heart attack have fallen by more than 60 percent over the past 40 years, while deaths from stroke have declined 70 percent. Cancer death rates have been dropping about 1 percent annually for the past 15 years — life expectancy gains that save the nation billions of dollars. HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention now enable us to envision the first AIDS-free generation since this virus emerged more than 30 years ago. NIH research also has given us vaccines to protect against an array of life-threatening diseases, including cervical cancer, influenza, and meningitis. We can look forward to a future in which advanced prevention and treatment strategies such as these allow everyone to have a significantly better chance of living a long and healthy life."
