EAS Consensus Position Paper Initiative
The EAS Consensus Panel, comprised of internationally renowned experts in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, was convened in November 2009 to consider the evidence for non-LDL lipids as risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
The Panel is co-chaired by Professor John Chapman, France, and Professor Henry Ginsberg, USA.
Familial Hypercholesterolaemia in Children and Adolescents :: Statin-associated muscle symptoms (SAMS) :: Homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia :: The polygenic nature of hypertriglyceridaemia :: Plant sterols and plant stanols :: Familial hypercholesterolaemia is underdiagnosed and undertreated :: Triglyceride-rich lipoproteins :: Lipoprotein(a) as a cardiovascular risk factor
In an expert panel together with the European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (EFLM), EAS is working on recommendations for laboratory testing of lipids and cardiovascular risk markers.
