EAS 2020 Inhibition of ANGPTL3 with evinacumab reduced LDL-c levels significantly in HoFH patients with little to no LDL receptor function.
EAS 2020 In a cohort of high-risk primary prevention individuals, 6-monthly injections with inclisiran reduced LDL-c and other atherogenic lipoproteins compared to placebo.
EAS 2020 Prof. Stein gives an overview of studies with the small binding protein targeting PCSK9, named LIB003.
EAS 2020 A subanalysis of the ORION-9 trial demonstrated that across subgroups of genotypes for heterozygous FH, inclisiran was equally effective in reducing LDL-c.
Prof. Stroes discusses the efficacy of PCSK9 inhibitors and which patients benefit most from LDL-c lowering (combination) therapies.
Prof. Mach explains the recommendations for pharmacological LDL-c lowering as described in the 2019 ESC/EAS guidelines for the management of dyslipidemia.
Attainment of 2016 guideline-recommended risk-based LDL-c goal was 54% and 33% of 2019 risk-based LDL-c goal in patients on lipid-lowering therapy in primary and secondary settings.
Prof. Mach discusses the concepts for lipid lowering treatment as defined in the 2019 ESC/EAS dyslipidemia guidelines.
This study constructed a time-dependent model to assess clinical benefit with lipid-lowering therapies and can be applied to different population- and patient-level scenarios.
ESC 2020 Evolocumab, in addition to standard lipid-lowering therapies, resulted in a placebo-corrected difference of 38.3% for LDL-c after 24 weeks in pediatric HeFH patients.
This trial in 57 patients with non-STEMI and troponin I ≥5 ng/mL showed that more patients reach LDL-c targets at hospital discharge with evolocumab plus high-intensity statin therapy compared with placebo plus high-intensity statin therapy.
Treatment with the PCSK9 inhibitor evolocumab reduced a composite of CV events compared to placebo in ASCVD patients with and without metabolic syndrome in a similar degree.
