A recent passion has been exploring the possible beneficial role of an IL-6 blockade on acute myocardial infarction. He launched an ambitious protocol studying the short-term effects on major adverse cardiac events which though it was eventually ended after futility analysis suggested no benefit, did enroll over 20 subjects and provided 180-day follow-up of data collection. He continues to actively lobby the study of an IL-6 blockade in other areas of Cardiology.
