Prof. Landmesser shows data that form the rationale behind new guideline recommendations, among which the lower LDL-c target for patients at very high risk.
Prof. Lüscher paints a picture of how atherosclerosis has been a fact of human life throughout time, and the evolution of insights on how to lower LDL-c and its associated CV risk.
This video series addresses the role of PCSK9 inhibiting approaches in treating hypercholesterolemia and in preventing CV events in patients at high and very high CV risk. Member registration (free) is needed to enroll in this course.
AHA 2019 The ORION-10 trial met all its primary and secundary efficacy endpoints, with a good safety profile, up to 17 months.
AHA 2019 The ORION-10 results showed LDL-c lowering of over 50% with inclisiran, an inhibitor of PCSK9 through RNA interference, with a safety profile similar to placebo.
Final results from the open-label OSLER-1 study on evolocumab show long-term reduction in LDL-C levels without attenuation of the LDL-lowering effect and consistent safety and tolerability profiles during 5-years.
Starting evolocumab treatment on top of high-intensity statin, in the hospital soon after ACS, safely and effectively lowers LDL-c to below guideline-recommended levels for almost all.
Topline results of ORION-9 and ORION-10 showed durable and potent efficacy and safety of twice-yearly injections of inclisiran in HeFH patients and participants with ASCVD, respectively.
ESC 2019 As chair of the guidelines task force, prof. Cosentino discusses the most important changes in the 2019 ESC/EASD guidelines on diabetes, pre-diabetes and CVD, based on new evidence from CV outcomes trials.
Prof. Steg presents data of the ODYSSEY Outcomes trial in specific subgroups of ACS patients that benefit most from alirocumab therapy, and discusses the effect of this PCSK9 inhibitor by baseline Lp(a) levels.
In the FOURIER trial, evolocumab reduced LDL-c by ~60% in patients with established CVD. Prof. Sabatine highlights subgroups of high-risk patients who benefit most from treatment with this PCSK9 inhibitor.
Prof. Kastelein discusses new strategies to target PCSK9, including twice-a-year injections of inclisiran and a newly developed oral PCSK9 inhibitor.
