Cardiovascular Conference Series: Beyond Statins: Therapies to Decrease Cardiovascular Risk
PCSK9 is an established target for cholesterol-lowering therapies. Further study of PCSK9 regulatory mechanisms may identify additional control points for pharmacological inhibition of PCSK9-mediated LDLR degradation. PCSK9 function could reflect ancient roles in the fasting-feeding cycle and in linking lipoprotein metabolism with innate immunity. Dr. McCullough will discuss the regulatory function of PSK9, as well as results from recent clinical trials on the efficacy and safety of PSK9.
