3' education - June 29, 2018 - Brian Ference, MD - Cambridge, UK
Trials on lowering Lp(a) have thusfar failed to show a CV outcome benefit. Brian Ference describes a more informative approach to look at Lp(a) data to identify who may benefit from Lp(a)-lowering therapy.

Summary | The cardiovascular challenge for primary care in diabetes

May 3, 2018 – Prof. Richard Hobbs, MD

This summary of the presentation by prof. Hobbs illustrates why diabetes poses a high burden to primary health care, since patients with T2DM are at high CV risk. This risk can be lowered by targeting various risk factors.
