A Major Breakthrough in Anti-Cholesterol Therapy
Dr. Sarat Chandra delivered a talk on the 11th of June on a New Anti- Cholesterol medication just introduced into the Indian market. The drug is called “Bempedoic Acid”. It acts by inhibiting cholesterol biosynthesis in two steps before the level of action of statins. The drug is used for patients who have not dropped their LDL levels below 70 mg/dl or are intolerant to statins. This is considered a major breakthrough in Anti-Cholesterol Therapy. The meeting was attended by about 50 Cardiologists and Physicians.
