The Gruppo Italiano per lo Studio della Sopravvivenza nell'Infarto Miocardico (GISSI) (Italian group for the study of the survival of Myocardial Infarction) is an influential cardiology research group founded as a collaboration between two Italian organisations – the Mario Negri Institute and the Associazione Nazionale dei Medici Cardiologi Ospedalieri (ANMCO).[1] The trials carried out by GISSI have "obtained wide recognition in the international world of cardiology and are considered a methodological landmark".[1] Four large-scale clinical trials over the past 20 years (GISSI 1,[2][3] GISSI 2,[4][5] GISSI 3,[6] GISSI Prevention[7]) have involved more than 60,000 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI).[1]
