While low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) remains a key contributor of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), additional risk factors identified through epidemiological and genetic studies have ushered in a fertile era of drug discovery in lipid-lowering therapy. Unlike contemporary small molecule medications, many of the novel agents are biologics utilizing monoclonal antibody (mAb) or RNA interference (RNAi) technologies. This report aims to review the evidence to date, focusi...

Genetic polymorphisms or variations, randomly distributed in a population, may cause drug-gene response variations. Investigation into these polymorphisms may identify novel mechanisms contributing to a specific disease process. Such investigation necessitates the use of Mendelian randomization, an analytical method that uses genetic variants as instrumental variables for modifiable risk factors that affect population health1. In the past decade, advances in our understanding of genetic polymorp...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW To revisit the importance of prevention strategies and policies in reducing the burden of ischemic heart disease in South Asian countries. RECENT FINDINGS South Asia has seen rapid growth in its population with variable improvement in health indicators such as life expectancy at birth over the last three decades. Parallel to these improvements, there has been a stark rise in noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) but without a commensurate improvement in infrastructure/policies and he...
Background: Substantial differences exist between United States counties with regards to premature (<65 years of age) cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality. Whether underlying social vulnerabiliti...

Background Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an emerging public health issue globally. The prevalence estimates on CKD in South Asia are however limited. This study aimed to examine the prevalence of CKD among the general and high-risk population in South Asia. null null Methods We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of population-level prevalence studies in South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka). Three databases namely PubMed, Sco...
