REDUCE-IT: Data, Cost-Effectiveness, and Guidelines
CMHC Senior Planning Committee member and renowned physician and researcher Dr. Deepak Bhatt, will overview the recent advances in addressing residual atherosclerotic risk. While hypercholesterolemia is an important, modifiable risk factor of ASCVD, residual risk may be present after optimization of LDL-C levels. Recent results with icosapent ethyl, as demonstrated by the REDUCE-IT trial, have shown that this agent can significantly reduce atherosclerotic events in high-risk hypertriglyceridemic patients with clinical ASCVD or type 2 diabetes and additional markers of increased risk. Dr. Bhatt, one of the principal investigators of the REDUCE-IT trial, will review the results of this trial and its clinical practice implications.
