The aim of this educational program was to provide a balanced overview of results with a novel approach to reduce residual CV risk in patients with increased cardiovascular and renal risk, namely BET inhibition. BET refers to a bromodomain and extra-terminal domain of regulatory proteins. Its inhibition modifies gene expression via epigenetic mechanisms.

This symposium was held during the 54th ERA EDTA Congress in Madrid, Spain on June 5, 2017. It was chaired by Vincent M Brandenburg, MD (Aachen, Germany) and Carmine Zoccali, MD (Reggio Cal, Italy).
