Open Lecture January - February 2019

Genetic disorders of lipid metabolism – with special focus on familial hypercholesterolaemia.

Professor Kees Hovingh, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This presentation was given during the EAS Advanced Course “Epidemiology and Genetics of Atherosclerosis, and Causality of Risk Factors”. Copenhagen October 10th-12th 2018.   

Professor Kees Hovingh is a leading scientist in the field of genetic lipid disorders and their role in cardiovascular disease.

In this lecture he covers a wide range of the genetic diseases affecting lipid metabolism.
However, his focus is on the most common clinical disorder, Hypercholesterolaemia.
In recent years the understanding of the epidemiology, the genetics as well as the metabolic background to the disease has increased tremendously.
Furthermore the new therapeutic options have increased the importance of detecting and to properly treat these patients.
The new drugs have the potential to cure the disease and give the patients back a normal life expectancy. The lecture by Professor Kees Hovingh will give you a good overview of these subjects and update on the most recent research and therapeutic options.
