These guidelines recommend that the treatment goal in patients with moderate hypertriglyceridemia be a non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level in agreement with National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel guidelines and that a fibrate should be used as a first-line agent.
Simvastatin with or without ezetimibe in familial hypercholesterolemia.
In patients with familial hypercholesterolemia, combined therapy with ezetimibe and simVastatin did not result in a significant difference in changes in intima-media thickness, as compared with simvastatin alone, despite decreases in levels of LDL cholesterol and C-reactive protein.

Polymorphisms in TLR4 exemplify how the interaction between the authors' innate immune system and the infectious pressures in particular environments may have shaped the genetic variations and function of their immune system during the out-of-Africa migration of modern humans.
Apo B versus cholesterol in estimating cardiovascular risk and in guiding therapy: report of the thirty‐person/ten‐country panel
Evidence from fundamental, epidemiological and clinical trial studies indicates that apo B is superior to any of the cholesterol indices to recognize those at increased risk of vascular disease and to judge the adequacy of lipid‐lowering therapy.
Homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia: new insights and guidance for clinicians to improve detection and clinical management. A position paper from the Consensus Panel on Familial…
The need for early identification of HoFH patients, prompt referral to specialized centres, and early initiation of appropriate treatment is highlighted, and recommendations offer guidance for a wide spectrum of clinicians who are often the first to identify patients with suspected HoFH.
Familial hypercholesterolaemia in children and adolescents: gaining decades of life by optimizing detection and treatment
