Event Description


Rethinking the Approach- Management of Elevated LDL-C in Patients with ASCVD

This presentation reviews the large burden of illness of ASCVD in the US population. It covers the numerous ways that high-risk ASCVD patients present and discuss important risk-enhancing factors and co-morbidities. Lastly, data is presented on the pivotal clinical trial results and baseline study population demographics supporting the FDA approval of a lipid lowering therapy, with a novel mechanism of action. Data includes LDL-C absolute and time-averaged reduction over trial duration, safety profile and appropriate patient population for considering appropriate use.

Learning Objectives:
Identify and qualify the most important risk factor(s) for ASCVD on a population level

  • Accurately identify prevalence/burden of ASCVD in the US, as well as heterogeneous group of diseases which encompasses ASCVD
  • Have ability to understand the LDL-C role in ASCVD through both exposure duration and magnitude of plaque burden among patients
  • Awareness of multi-specialty guideline directed optimal LDL-C threshold levels
  • Possess awareness of additional therapeutic option for select ASCVD patients who require additional lowering of LDL-C beyond baseline therapy
