Introducing Featured Open Lectures

This is a new initiative from the Society to highlight our online educational platform EAS ACADEMY. Every other month we select one interesting lecture from a recent course or congress and make it available for free, to members and non-members.

Open Lecture March/April 2019

Dysregulation of hepatic and lipoprotein metabolism in the atherogenic dyslipidemia.
Professor Marja-RiittaTaskinen, Helsinki, Finland. This presentation was given during EAS 86th Congress in Lisbon, 2018.

One of the founders of clinical lipidology, the American professor Richard Havel used to claim atherosclerosis is a liver disease. This notion underlies the importance of hepatic function for multiple metabolic pathways. Concerning atherogenesis, lipid and lipoprotein metabolism seems crucial and its regulation at the hepatocyte level is better and better understood. In her excellent talk, professor Marja-Riitta Taskinen overviews the recent findings of kinetic studies as well as of very interesting dietary experiments showing profound and rapid changes of hepatic and intestinal lipoprotein production in response to dietary change.
