EAS Academy Newsletter December 7, 2023

Featured Open Lecture: December 2023-January 2024

Peter Libby, MD, is a cardiovascular specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, and holds the Mallinckrodt Professorship of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. His areas of clinical expertise include general and preventive cardiology.
His current major research focus is the role of inflammation in vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis.

Dr Libby has a particular devotion to translating his basic laboratory studies to pilot and then large-scale clinical cardiovascular outcome trials. He instigated and helped to lead the large-scale CANTOS trial that provided clinical validation of the role of inflammation in atherosclerosis. Peter Libby’s research has contributed central knowledge on obesity-driven inflammation and the activation of both the innate and the adaptive immune system.

In this lecture, Professor Peter Libby reviews the interplay between atherosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, and inflammation. Firstly, the effects of inflammation on obesity, diabetes, and atherosclerosis; secondly, the effect of glycaemic control on inflammation; and finally, the lack of effect of IL-1β inhibition on new-onset diabetes in the CANTOS study.

Certificate of Excellence in Lipidology – 2023 Update

Due to the high prevalence of atherosclerotic vascular disease, clinicians often encounter challenges when addressing various facets of the condition. This initiative aims to enhance the quality of clinical care for individuals with cardiovascular disease or those seeking cardiovascular prevention.

Additionally, professionals in clinical science, epidemiology, and translational cardiovascular research will gain valuable insights that can enhance their respective fields of study.

The program introduces new areas of focus, including Remnant cholesterol, the application of polygenic risk scores in diagnosing combined dyslipidemia, and bempedoic acid. Furthermore, the multiple-choice questions (MCQs) for both pre and post-tests have been thoroughly reviewed and updated.
