BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Myeloperoxidase (MPO), a product of systemic inflammation, promotes oxidation of lipoproteins; whereas, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) exerts anti-oxidative effects in part via paraoxonase-1 (PON1). MPO induces dysfunctional HDL particles; however, the interaction of circulating levels of these measures in cardiovascular disease (CVD) has not been studied in humans. We tested whether serum levels of MPO indexed to HDL particle concentration (MPO/HDLp) are associated with increased CVD risk in a large multiethnic population sample, free of CVD at baseline...

Familial hypercholesterolaemia is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder characterised by elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and consequently an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Familial hypercholesterolaemia is relatively common, but is often underdiagnosed and undertreated. Cardiologists are likely to encounter many individuals with familial hypercholesterolaemia; however, patients presenting with premature ASCVD are rarely screened for familial hypercholesterolaemia and fasting lipid levels are infrequently documented...

Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) remains the number one killer in the western world. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) reduction with statins and ezetimibe has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events. Now, proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) monoclonal antibodies (mabs) are available for high-risk individuals with ASCVD or familial hypercholesterolemia on maximally tolerated statin therapy but requiring greater LDL-C reduction. PCSK9 mab outcome trial results from the Further Cardiovascular Outcomes Research with PCSK9 Inhibitions in Subjects with Elevated Risk (FOURIER) study, which was presented at the American College of Cardiology in March 2017, which demonstrated a decrease of 15% in primary and 20% secondary end points over a 2-year period [1••]...

The 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guideline on cholesterol treatment to prevent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) has been criticized for lowering the risk thresholds for primary prevention with statin therapy. Although the ≥ 7.5% (class I) and ≥ 5% (class IIa) 10-year ASCVD risk thresholds were identified as new indications for treatment by extrapolating results obtained in randomized controlled trials (RCT) of statin therapy, results from population-based European cohorts indicate that >30% of individuals eligible for statin therapy by class I recommendations do not have RCT data supporting statin efficacy...

ABCDE strategy, mainly based on drugs or medications and the lifestyle modification (named as "main medical strategy"), is popular in the guideline for primary and secondary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in China and foreign countries. Here, the author recommends a non-invasive and non-pharmacologic "Zhongzi" rule, which includes 4 healthy elements: Sleep, emotion, exercise, and diet (SEED), and also called SEED intervention (SEEDi) strategy. It is the basic strategy for primary and secondary prevention of non-infectious diseases, especially for ASCVD...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to determine whether coronary artery calcium (CAC) could be used to optimize statin allocation among individuals for whom trial-based evidence supports efficacy of statin therapy. BACKGROUND: Recently, allocation of statins was proposed for primary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) based on proven efficacy from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of statin therapy, a so-called trial-based approach. METHODS: The study used data from MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis) with 5,600 men and women, 45 to 84 years of age, and free of clinical ASCVD, lipid-lowering therapy, or missing information for risk factors at baseline examination...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Overt atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) warrants aggressive lipid lowering. Imaging for ambiguous symptoms suggesting ischemia or for clarification of CV risk in asymptomatic individuals often uncovers previously unknown ASCVD. Guidelines do not provide clear recommendations for aggressive lipid lowering in such cases. We explored physicians' perception, as influenced by tests that detect ASCVD, regarding appropriateness of getting to lipid goals and for theoretically accessing proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 inhibitors (PCSK9i)...

BACKGROUND: Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) causes most deaths in the United States and accounts for the highest healthcare spending. The association between the modifiable risk factors (MRFs) of ASCVD and pharmaceutical expenditures are largely unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined the association between MRFs and pharmaceutical expenditures among adults with ASCVD using the 2012 and 2013 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. A 2-part model was used while accounting for the survey's complex design to obtain nationally representative results...

Tremendous effort has been invested in reducing the prevalence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in China. Meanwhile, accumulating evidence has emerged to show the benefits of statins in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. The present study investigated the change trends of statins prescription at discharge among patients with ASCVD in recent years, differences across subtypes of ASCVD, and associated factors. The study included 51,972 patients with a discharge diagnosis of ASCVD who were hospitalized in West China Hospital from 2008 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Statin therapy is recommended for reducing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk. Significant risk can remain because of insufficient clinical response or statin intolerance. Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type-9 (PCSK9) therapy lowers low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and has recently been shown to lower ASCVD events. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to assess the barriers and challenges experienced with the access and approval reimbursement process for PCSK9 inhibitor prescriptions...

We assessed the relationships among adult height, coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores, incident atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) events, and atrial fibrillation (Afib) in a multi-ethnic cohort. We used race/ethnicity -specific height (dichotomized by median and quartiles) as the predictor variable within the four race/ethnic groups in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (N = 6,814). After a mean of 10.2 years of follow-up (2000-2012), 556 ASCVD events (8.2%) and 539 afib events (7.9%) occurred...

Macrovascular complications of diabetes include cardiovascular events, whereas common microvascular complications include neuropathy, retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease. Control of hypertension and dyslipidemia is an important step in minimizing the risk of complications. Blood pressure (BP) levels should be maintained at less than 140 mm Hg systolic and less than 90 mm Hg diastolic. In older adults, medical therapy to reduce BP to less than 130/70 mm Hg is not recommended. In these patients, a systolic BP level less than 130 mm Hg has not been shown to improve atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) outcomes, and a diastolic BP less than 70 mm Hg is associated with a higher mortality risk...

In 2003, select families with familial hypercholesterolemia were first identified to have gain-of-function mutations for proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9 (PCSK9) followed, in 2006, by the identification of those with lifelong low levels of LDL-C and lowered atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk who had loss-of-function PCSK9 mutations. These discoveries led to the rapid development of PSCK9-targeted monoclonal antibody (PCSK9 mAb) therapies and, in 2015, 2 'fully-humanized' PCSK9 mAbs (alirocumab and evolocumab) were marketed in the United States, Europe, and other countries...

Examination of the current the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) and European Society of Cardiology/European Atherosclerosis Society (ESC/EAS) guidelines on the prevention of cardiovascular disease and the management of dyslipidemias finds much common ground. Both note that Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is, in most people, the product of a number of risk factors, notably tobacco exposure, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, inactivity, overweight and diabetes. They stress that risk calculators can help in the assessment of risk in apparently healthy persons...

Association of hypercholesterolemia and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is well established. Reducing low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and raising high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) have been the therapeutic targets to reduce the risk of ASCVD. Cholesterol-lowering medications have been used to provide both primary and secondary prevention of ASCVD for many years by reducing the absorption and reabsorption, promoting excretion, or decreasing the synthesis of cholesterol. Within the past five years, several new classes of cholesterol-lowering drugs have been tested and approved for patients with hypercholesterolemia that are not well controlled by conventional therapy (ezetimibe, bile-acid sequestrants, and statins)...

Background: The 2013 cholesterol management guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) recommend lipid screening in all adults older than 20 years to identify those at increased risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Statins may be considered for patients with elevated 10-year risk (>5%) or a low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) level of 4.92 mmol/L (190 mg/dL) or greater. Objective: To describe the prevalence of elevated ASCVD risk among nondiabetic adults younger than 50 years...
