Educational objectives

  • Understand the unmet need for additional LDL-C-lowering therapies beyond current optimal statin-based therapy as a strategy for addressing lipid-related CV risk in patients with FH
  • Understand the mechanisms and potential applications of emerging therapies to lower LDL through novel approaches that can be used in combination with statin therapy
  • Describe the potential impact of PCSK9-based therapies in development in patients who require additional LDL-C reduction
  • Compare and evaluate evidence from recent clinical trials of novel agents in clinical development and assess their impact on lipids and cardiovascular risk
