technologies in the areas of energy, biotechnology and health, and information
technology.

23 companies are US-based. Israel and Switzerland each boast three; the United
Kingdom and Sweden two each; and France, Germany, India, the Netherlands and
Russia, one each. Technology Pioneers are nominated in three main categories:

    About Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)

    CVD remains the number one killer of developed nations. Apolipoprotein
A-I (ApoA-I), the main component of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), is the
body's natural defense system against atherosclerosis (commonly referred to as
clogged arteries). In multiple human and animal studies over-expression or
repeated infusion of ApoA-I inhibit progression and induce regression of
atherosclerosis in animals and humans.
