Therapeutic strategies


For cardiologists, lipidologists, epidemiologists, and clinical trialists, Tonkin (medicine, cardiology, and epidemiology, Monash U., Australia) assembles 17 chapters on the causes, risk factors, effects, and treatments for lipid disorders, as well as their relationship to other conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and heart failure, and the role of lipid-lowering agents in the management of co- morbidities. Specialists in vascular and cardiovascular medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, epidemiology, and other fields from Europe, North America, and Australia also discuss the prevention of stroke and transient ischemic attack, the treatment of familial hypercholesterolemia, statins and heart failure, risk assessment in the general population, the role of imaging endpoints in clinical trials, biomarkers, and novel lipid-modifying agents.
