EAS Publications - Atherosclerosis Journal

Highlighted articles May 2020

The genetic set-up of human beings has not changed tremendously over time. However, the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASCVD) is altered tremendously during a rather limited period of time. This can be best witnessed in countries which turned a predominantly rural culture into an urban culture. These transitions are accompanied by massive changes in lifestyle, diet, environment, and socioeconomic factors which have a strong impact on disease risks of the individuals and their offspring. In addition, treatment of diseases other than ASCVD has an impact on vascular biology, either directly or indirectly, by affecting risk factors. The May issue Vol 301 contains several articles on the impact of lifestyle factors and concomitant drug treatment on ASCVD and its risk factors.

Highlighted articles June 2020

The June issues contains several articles on the assessment of cardiovascular disease risk either by assessment of vascular physiology and structure or by lipoprotein related biomarkers.
