Rehearsal Lp(a) webinar

Mon, Oct 25, 2021 · 11:00 AM · Stockholm
About This Webinar

Epidemiological and mendelian randomization studies have demonstrated lipoprotein(a) to be an independent risk factor for myocardial infarction and stroke. Lipoprotein(a) consists of a specific apolipoprotein(a) that is highly heritable and bound to LDL-C particles. Recent research has increased the understanding of Lipoprotein(a) in disease and new therapies are emerging.
In this webinar speakers will review the current knowledge on lipoprotein(a) from human genetics to atherogenic mechanisms and emerging drug treatment targeting lipoprotein (a).

  • Introduction of topic. Stefano Romeo
  • Potential mechanisms for the atherogenic and thrombotic effect of Lp(a). Alexandros Tselepis
  • From epidemiology to human genetic studies, to define the risk of Lp(a) related CVD disease. Pia Rörbaek-Kamstrup
  • Family screening and drugs targeting Lp(a) for CVD prevention. Massimiliano Ruscica
  • Q&A
