Precision medicine for a personalized care in dyslipidaemia

Syed Raza, Speaker at Cardiovascular Conference
Awali Hospital, Bahrain
Title : Precision medicine for a personalized care in dyslipidaemia


Dyslipidaemia comprises  of abnormal lipid components  and  refers mainly to  increased levels of  LDL, non HDL particles and triglycerides while  decreased  levels of HDL Dyslipidaemia is a  common and independent  modifiable risk factor for  cardiovascular disease. Besides  quantitative  measurement,  qualitative  assessment  of  these  components is   also essential and therefore particles like Lipoprotein (a)  and Apo-B should be taken into  account.

Unlike  in  the  past  where  dyslipidaemia   was treated mainly  based  on  their  quantitative levels, there  is  a  paradigm shift in providing  a  more  personalized care  to  patients. This  is based on assessment  of  cardiovascular  risk of individual patient  which  allows  choosing the  right strategy  of  therapy for them.  This  would  include  using  the  right intensity statin therapy in  the  correct  dose for  a  category or  level  of  cardiovascular  risk. In  addition, there is  now  more  emphasis on making  use of  other  lipid  lowering  drugs  like Ezetimibe, PCSK-9 Inhibitor, Fibrates  and Omega 3  Fatty Acid. Adoption of  these  strategies  are  based  on  evidence derived  from  several  well  designed  randomized  control  trials that  have  shown  to  lead to better  cardiovascular  outcome.

It  is  therefore  vital  that  clinicians  are  aware  of  this  concept  of  precision Medicine so  that  prescription for  managing  dyslipidaemia  is  more  cost  effective and lifesaving.
