New Insights Link Low HDL-Cholesterol and Elevated Triglycerides With Coronary Heart Disease and Microvascular Complications in Patients at Goal for LDL-Cholesterol
Date:9/1/2009

Foundation is to identify new indicators of macro- and microvascular residual risk as targets for future treatment strategies.

Residual vascular risk - A public health emergency

"Further reduction of LDL-C by use of the maximum permissible statin dosage is unlikely to be able to substantially lower this residual, largely non-LDL-C mediated risk," says Professor Gerd Assmann from the University of Munster, Germany.

Therefore, while statins are effective, other treatment strategies are urgently needed to address the residual vascular risk which persists in patients despite current standards of care. While the R3i research program will help define appropriate targets for intervention in patients who remain at high residual vascular risk, the ongoing outcomes trials such as ACCORD, AIM-HIGH and HPS2-THRIVE will help determine new treatment strategies to address this risk.

"The R3i has a huge task ahead to get people recognizing the threat of residual vascular risk and acting to better manage it," said Professor Jean-Charles Fruchart of the University of Lille, France and President of the R3i. "We have to look beyond using statins as a silver bullet to reduce LDL-cholesterol. The mindset that reducing one component to prevent heart disease is wrong and needs to change."

The PROCAM analysis used a case-control approach in which 823 men who had survived a MI were matched with an equal number of controls. Patients, who were matched for age, smoking status, type 2 diabetes status, blood pressure and LDL-C to an equal number of MI-free controls from the PROCAM cohort of 50,000 participants, a unique prospective investigation of coronary artery disease (
