EAS Publications: Atherosclerosis Newsletter
Recent issue highlights – November & December
Human genetics approaches were previously successful in the identification of drug targets for the prevention or treatment of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. Recent examples are PCSK9 and ANGPTL3.
The therapeutic interference with these genes led to the identification of unanticipated treatment effects, for example, the lowering of Lp(a) levels upon PCSK9 inhibition.
Volumes 361 and 362 of Atherosclerosis contain several articles which describe research outcomes on the elucidation of pleiotropic effects of PCSK9 and ANGPTL3 or genetic strategies toward the identification and validation of novel target genes.
