Dopo 23 anni, lo studio CANTOS confermi l'ipotesi sull'infiammazione

Aug. 29, 2017 - ESC 2017, Barcelona, Spain

Educational information

The CANTOS trial is the first in a series of trials that test the hypothesis that inhibiting inflammation can lower residual CV risk. The results of this trial indeed confirm this hypothesis, suggesting that from now on, targeting inflammation may need to be considered in patients on lipid-lowering therapy with residual inflammatory CV risk.

These inflammation expert opinion videos are aimed to provide guidance and perspectives on the implications of the CANTOS trial and other trials addressing inflammation in CVD. These expert views may help translate scientific findings to future clinical practice, by improving personalized CV risk management.
