An August 16, 2005 article by Amanda Gardner of HealthDay News quotes ACSH's Dr. Ruth Kava on the question of a possible mechanism for cardiovascular benefits from garlic:

"It's still in the realm of very basic research," added Ruth Kava, director of nutrition at the American Council on Science and Health in New York City. "Whether or not it's going to have any real impact in terms of human health, it's much too early to say."

If the study is confirmed and replicated by other researchers, however, "it may provide a role for future pharmaceuticals," Kava added.
