PACE Snapshot

News - July 19, 2012

Description

This PACE snapshot session is an initiative of the PACE foundation as part of its mission, which includes the review, exchange and assimilation of important new data underlying cardiovascular disease & diabetes and accelerate this information into clinical practice. The aim of this meeting is to provide expert physicians with a state of the art and comprehensive overview of different novel interventions in the future management of cardiovascular disease. The session will provide expert physicians with a platform for discussion, debate and exchange. The session is designed in a format with multiple short introductions by leading experts, covering a broad field of innovations in cardiovascular risk factor management , such as hypertension, lipid management, anticoagulation and diabetes, including time for discussion and debate.


Meeting objectives

  • To review and discuss new data and developments on the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and its relevance to treatment strategies and outcomes.
  • To understand the pharmacologic and clinical rationale for various new treatment options in the management of cardiovascular disease.
  • To develop a consensus on practical guidelines for clinical magement of the coronary artery disease patient

ACS & Diabetes

Brief-CME: A review by Prof. John Betteridge, UCL, London on the current status of drugs targeting the hormone nuclear receptors, such as pioglitazone (PPAR-y) and aleglitazar (dual PPAR) and their potential impact on outcomes in CVD.

Targeting CV risk:

Brief-CME: View Prof. John Deanfield, London, discuss the central role of the endothelium in detecting atherosclerosis and CV disease before its clinical stage and opportunities to evaluate the impact of new drug therapies.

HDL-c: Latest insights and opinion on CETP as target for intervention

Brief-CME. Prof. Philip Barter, The Heart Institute Sydney, Australia, chairman of IAS, provides his opinion on the development of CETP inhibitors. Now development of 2 initial compounds has failed the hypothesis remains worth testing and large scale clinical outcomes trials with anacetrapib and evacetrapib are underway.

ACS and Lipids: HDL Infusion and delipidation as standard treatment for ACS

Dr. Bryan Brewer, Washington DC, USA, discusses the potential role of HDL infusion in the coronary plaque to reduce residual cardiovascular risk in patients with ACS.

The future of hypertension management:The role of new interventions

Brief-CME. Prof. Bryan Williams outlines some of the key areas of innovation in the management of high blood pressure, like potential new drug therapies as AT2 receptor agonists and dual ARB/NEP inhibition (ARNI) and also new device therapies as Renal denervation and Carotid Baroreceptor Stimulation.

LDL-c, Should we go lower?: Novel therapies, Novel promises?

Brief-CME. Watch prof. John Kastelein, Amsterdam, review novel interventions in lipid management beyond statin therapy, such as PCSK9 inhibitors, cholesterol absorption inhibition, mRNA inhibitors and MTP inhibitors.

Inflammation: The link between risk factors and atherosclerosis?

Brief-CME: Prof. Ulf Landmesser, Zurich, Switzerland is discussing the potential role of inflammation in the vessel wall in the causal process of atherosclerosis and interventions targeted to reduce inflammation as currently tested in the CANTOS trial.

What is new in Anti-coagulation in AF and ACS

Brief-CME. Prof. Freek VerheugtAmsterdam, The Netherlands, discusses the potential role of New Oral Anticoagulants as alternative to warfarin in the management of Atrial Fibrillation.
