Severe/Resistant Hypercholesterolemia: New Agents Redefining Clinical Practice

Since hypercholesterolemia is a major driver of ASCVD, lipid-lowering therapies (mainly in combination with statins) are the primary approach to lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and reduce CVD risk. Unfortunately, intensive statin therapy lowers CVD risk by only ~50%, leaving many patients at excessively high residual CVD risk. Recently approved PCSK9 inhibitors have been shown to produce robust LDL-C reduction (by ~60%) when co-administered with statins. Severe/Resistant H...
