Educational information

AHA 2016 The orally active epigenetic drug RVX-208 or apabetalone that alters gene activity by modifying chromatin structure, lowered the incidence of MACE in a phase 2b study. This effect could not entirely be attributed to an effect on HDL, explains dr. Norman Wong, and varous analyses give insight into other processes that seem beneficially affected.
