EDITOR'S PICK: IDOLizing low cholesterol

High levels of 'bad' cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) are a risk factor for developing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) a disease of the major arterial blood vessels that is one of the major causes of heart attack and stroke. Although the use of statins and the adoption of lifestyle changes to reduce LDL cholesterol levels have decreased the incidence of and mortality from ASCVD, many individuals fail to reach target levels of LDL cholesterol. Researchers are therefore seeking new targets for LDL cholesterollowering therapeutics. Human genetic and mechanistic studies by a team of researchers, led by Pivi Pajukanta, at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, has now identified the protein MYLIP (also known as IDOL) as a potential new target in this context.

One of the reasons that tumors are able to grow rapidly is that they actively prevent immune cells from generating effective antitumor immune responses. Researchers are developing approaches to combat the mechanisms used by tumors to inhibit immune responses, but such approaches don't kill tumor cells directly. A team of researchers, led by Jolanda de Vries and Joost Lesterhuis, at Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre, Netherlands, has ide
