124. Genetic and Pharmacologic Inactivation of ANGPTL3 and Cardiovascular Disease.

Genetic and Pharmacologic Inactivation of ANGPTL3 and Cardiovascular Disease. Background Loss-of-function variants in the angiopoietin-like 3 gene (ANGPTL3) have been associated with decreased plasma levels of triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. It is not known whether such variants or therapeutic antagonism of ANGPTL3 are associated with a reduced risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Methods We sequenced the exons (...) with decreased levels of all three major lipid fractions and decreased odds of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Evacetrapib and Cardiovascular Outcomes in High-Risk Vascular Disease. BACKGROUND: The cholesteryl ester transfer protein inhibitor evacetrapib substantially raises the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol level, reduces the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level, and enhances cellular cholesterol efflux capacity.

128. Mortality and Cardiovascular Disease in Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

Mortality and Cardiovascular Disease in Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. BACKGROUND: Long-term trends in excess risk of death and cardiovascular outcomes have not been extensively studied in persons with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. METHODS: We included patients registered in the Swedish National Diabetes Register from 1998 through 2012 and followed them through 2014. Trends in deaths and cardiovascular events were estimated with Cox regression and standardized incidence rates. For each (...) patient, controls who were matched for age, sex, and county were randomly selected from the general population. RESULTS: Among patients with type 1 diabetes, absolute changes during the study period in the incidence rates of sentinel outcomes per 10,000 person-years were as follows: death from any cause, -31.4 (95% confidence interval [CI], -56.1 to -6.7); death from cardiovascular disease, -26.0 (95% CI, -42.6 to -9.4); death from coronary heart disease, -21.7 (95% CI, -37.1 to -6.4

131. Tachykinin neurokinin 3 receptor antagonists: a new treatment for cardiovascular disease?

Tachykinin neurokinin 3 receptor antagonists: a new treatment for cardiovascular disease? Great progress has been made in reducing cardiovascular mortality over the past 50 years. Nevertheless, prevalence is rising in some settings and remains higher in men than in women, even with the same level of established risk factors. To gain new insights, researchers are now considering cardiovascular disease in relation to the well known evolutionary biology model of growth and reproduction trading off (...) against longevity, with trials of calorie restriction underway. However, calorie restriction has not been as successful as expected in primates and it is increasingly realised that effects on the reproductive axis might also be important. In this paper, the modulation of the reproductive axis using existing agents that have such properties-tachykinin neurokinin 3 receptor antagonists-is proposed as a way of reducing cardiovascular disease and combating a leading cause of global morbidity and mortality

133. Evolocumab and Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease.

Evolocumab and Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease. Background Evolocumab is a monoclonal antibody that inhibits proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9 (PCSK9) and lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels by approximately 60%. Whether it prevents cardiovascular events is uncertain. Methods We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving 27,564 patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and LDL cholesterol levels (...) and neurocognitive events), with the exception of injection-site reactions, which were more common with evolocumab (2.1% vs. 1.6%). Conclusions In our trial, inhibition of PCSK9 with evolocumab on a background of statin therapy lowered LDL cholesterol levels to a median of 30 mg per deciliter (0.78 mmol per liter) and reduced the risk of cardiovascular events. These findings show that patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease benefit from lowering of LDL cholesterol levels below current targets
