Educational information

This lecture by Henry Ginsberg is part of a series titled "Targeting TG-rich remnant lipoproteins: Review of new insights and clinical opportunities".

This program has been designed to educate physicians and other healthcare professionals with an interest in CV risk on lipid-associated residual risk beyond LDL-c and provide an update of novel findings in basic and clinical science with regard to the association of triglyceride-rich remnant lipoproteins and CV risk. In addition, guidance will be given how to use findings from studies on triglyceride-rich lipoproteins in the treatment of patients in clinical practice.
