GLAGOVEffect of Evolocumab on Progression of Coronary Disease in Statin-Treated Patients The GLAGOV Randomized Clinical Trial

IMPORTANCE Reducing levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) with intensive statin therapy reduces progression of coronary atherosclerosis in proportion to achieved LDL-C levels. Proprotein convertase […]

Background   Alirocumab, a monoclonal antibody that inhibits proprotein convertase subtilisin– kexin type 9 (PCSK9), has been shown to reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels […]

dal-OUTCOMESEffects of Dalcetrapib in Patients with a Recent Acute Coronary Syndrome

Background In observational analyses, higher levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol have been associated with a lower risk of coronary heart disease events. However, whether […]

Aims High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) is inversely associated with cardiovascular (CV) events and thus an attractive therapeutic target. However, in spite of marked elevations in HDL-C, […]

EFJESafety and efficacy of LY3015014, a monoclonal antibody to proprotein convertase subtilisin/ kexin type 9 (PCSK9)

Aims The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of LY3015014 (LY), a neutralizing antibody of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 […]

Aim High-density lipoproteins (HDLs) have several potentially protective vascular effects. Most clinical studies of therapies targeting HDL have failed to show benefits vs. placebo. Objective To […]

CHARONEfficacy and safety of rosuvastatin therapy in children and adolescents with familial hypercholesterolemia

OBJECTIVE: Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH) is an autosomal dominant disorder leading to premature atherosclerosis. Guidelines recommend initiating statins early to reduce lowdensity lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). […]

ALECARDIOEffect of Aleglitazar on Cardiovascular Outcomes After Acute Coronary Syndrome in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
