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 May-June 2018

Lowering LDL in Cardiovascular Disease – LDL as the Primary Causative factor and Treatment Target

This presentation was given as a plenary lecture at the EAS Congress in Prague, 2017, by Professor Chris Packard at the University of Glasgow, UK. In this lecture Professor Packard reviews the overwhelming evidence that LDL is the key causative factor for atherosclerosis – evidence obtained from experimental studies, epidemiology, genetics, pathophysiology and from clinical trials. He also takes this knowledge into the understanding of the mechanisms of the drugs shown to reduce CVD by reduction of LDL-Cholesterol.

Free access to the lecture will be open until June 30.
