Targeting residual cardiovascular risk & vascular calcification: The clinical perspective for BET inhibition

10' education - July 3, 2019 - ERA-EDTA 2019 - Vincent Brandenburg, MD - Würselen, Germany

ERA-EDTA 2019 Epigenetics contribute to vascular calcification, which is a hallmark of CVD in CKD. Prof. Brandenburg explains how BET inhibition can interfere with factors and pathways associated with vascular calcification.
