The most comprehensive lecture about Lp(a) you’ve ever seen, given by Prof. Florian Kronenberg

This is a lecture given by Professor Florian Kronenberg at the 91st EAS Congress 2023 in Mannheim Germany, May 21-24, 2023.

In his excellent and up-to-date overview, Professor Kronenberg presented data on the association of lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) with various cardiovascular disease (CVD) endpoints, including coronary artery disease, aortic valve stenosis, heart failure, ischemic stroke, peripheral arterial disease as well as total and cardiovascular mortality.

He also presented data on the association of oxidized phospholipids with Lp(a), on the apolipoprotein (a) structural characteristics and isoforms as well as on the variability of Lp(a) within isoform groups. He next discussed the possible causal role of Lp(a) in CVD and the association of life-long genetic exposure to high Lp(a) levels with increased CVD risk.

He continued his lecture presenting the consensus panel recommendation for managing high Lp(a) concentrations and discussed the emerging specific Lp(a)-lowering therapies targeting Lp(a) production. He also explained why the Lp(a) concentration in plasma should be measured, even if its levels could not be significantly reduced with existing hypolipidemic therapies.

It is a very important and comprehensive lecture you should not miss.

From 1993 onward: discover our story and legacy!

In 1993, the decision to open up a previously exclusive club to welcome more young scientists and broaden the scope of atherosclerosis risk factor research proved to be a significant milestone. Explore the unfolding events that followed.

Learn about the pivotal moments, the challenges overcome, and the remarkable growth that has defined our legacy. Join us in revisiting our roots and embracing the rich history that continues to inspire us today.

In 1999, Atherosclerosis Journal became our official journal, marking a pivotal moment. Three years later, we elevated our professionalism by opening our first office in Malmö, Sweden. Then, in 2007, we proudly published the inaugural Joint European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in collaboration with sister societies. But our journey didn’t pause there. In 2010, we pioneered the EAS Consensus Panel initiative, issuing our first Position Paper. Just two years later, we embraced the digital age, unveiling our cutting-edge educational platform, offering invaluable online resources to our members and Congress delegates. This is just a glimpse of the remarkable strides we’ve made. And the story continues, with even greater chapters awaiting to be written.

It beautifully reflects the consistency and enduring goals of our society, which remain relevant even today, after 60 years. This lasting dedication speaks volumes about our unwavering vision and commitment. Looking back on six decades, we’re reminded of our steadfast mission and timeless values. It’s a testament to our resilience and ongoing relevance in an ever-changing world.
