  • Postmortem diagnosis of sitosterolaemia by next-generation sequencing in a
           patient with severe hypercholesterolaemia and cardiovascular failure

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 September 2019Source: Atherosclerosis: XAuthor(s): Yun Qiao, Minjie Xu, Zheng Yan, Qiang Liu, Wanjun Chen, Jianfei Xiong, Changqing Zhu, Xiaoye LuBackground and aimsSitosterolaemia (STSL; OMIN #210250) is a disorder of lipid metabolism and a rare autosomal recessive condition caused by loss-of-function biallelic mutations in the adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette, subfamily G member 5 (ABCG5) gene (NM_022,436.2) or in the adjacent ABCG8 gene (NM_022,437.2). STSL patients often have high plasma total sterols and present a heterogeneous phenotype. Here, we describe a male patient with a post-mortem diagnosis of STSL who was admitted to the emergency department with advanced heart failure, tendon xanthomas and findings from the follow up with his living family members.MethodsWe established a family pedigree and performed whole-exome next-generation sequencing for the patient and Sanger sequencing of DNA samples obtained from his living family members. Plasma sterol (β-sitosterol) level was measured by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.ResultsBoth the patient and his younger brother carried a homozygous mutation of p. R263Q (c.788G > A) in the ABCG8 gene. The patient's plasma plant sterol level was extremely high (β-sitosterol: 107.5 μg/ml), and the plasma β-sitosterol level of his younger brother without tendon xanthomas was also abnormally high (51.5 μg/ml). The β-sitoserol levels of other living family members including ones with a heterozygous mutation of p. R263Q (c.788G > A) were normal (i.e. undetectable). Based on the results of genetic detection and very high plasma level of β-sitosterol, we made a definitive diagnosis of STSL.ConclusionsEmergency physicians should be aware of the need to further investigate individuals with xanthomas and cardiovascular disease using biochemical and genetic analyses to aid in diagnosis and intervention.Graphical abstractImage 1
       
  • Association of hippocampal calcification and cardiovascular risk factors
           in two patient cohorts

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Atherosclerosis: X, Volume 1Author(s): Marije J.A. van der Knaap, Melissa E.M. Peters, Carlo Lucci, Mirjam I. Geerlings, Pim A. de Jong, Ynte M. Ruigrok, A. Algra, Y. van der Graaf, D.E. Grobbee, G.E.H.M. Rutten, F.L.J. Visseren, G.J. de Borst, L.J. Kappelle, T. Leiner, P.A. DoevendansBackground and aimsHippocampal calcification is a recently described type of intracranial calcification and might be a risk factor for ischemic stroke and dementia. Data on its risk factors and insight into the etiology are limited. We aimed to investigate the association of risk factors for hippocampal calcification in two independent cohorts in the Netherlands.MethodsUnenhanced CT scans of the brain were scored for the presence and severity of hippocampal calcification in two independent prospectively collected patient cohorts, the first consisting of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) patients (N = 741) and the second of patients participating in the Second Manifestation of ARTerial disease (SMART) study (N = 498). We estimated the association of the risk factors age, sex, smoking, dyslipidemia, overweight, hypertension, diabetes, family history, cardiac history, cerebrovascular history, use of vitamin K antagonists and renal disease with the presence and moderate/severe calcification using logistic regression analysis.ResultsIn both cohorts, age ≥60 years was associated with the presence of hippocampal calcification (odds ratio (OR) 2.47, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.37–4.45 in SAH and OR 1.91, 95% CI 1.30–2.82 in SMART); in SMART, age was associated with moderate/severe calcification as well (OR 2.77, 96%CI 2.77 (1.36–3.65). All other risk factors, including a cumulative risk score of 5 or more risk factors, did not show any association with hippocampal calcification presence or severity.ConclusionsWe identified age as a risk factor for hippocampal calcification. All other risk factors studied were not associated with hippocampal calcification. This contradicts findings on arterial calcifications elsewhere in the body. Therefore, more research is needed to understand this discrepancy.Graphical abstractImage 1
       
  • Lifestyle interventions and nutraceuticals: Guideline-based approach to
           cardiovascular disease prevention

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Atherosclerosis: X, Volume 1Author(s): Alberico L. Catapano, Vivencio Barrios, Arrigo F.G. Cicero, Matteo PirroAbstractLowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels is associated with a well-documented reduction in cardiovascular (CV) disease (CVD) risk. Current guidelines and literature support lifestyle interventions as the primary strategy for reducing CV risk. Association of dietary modifications (such as the Mediterranean diet), physical activity and the cessation of smoking with reduced CV morbidity and mortality has been evidenced. Where lifestyle interventions are not adequate for lowering LDL-C levels and CV risk, pharmacological therapies, most commonly statins, may also be considered. The benefits of lifestyle and pharmacological interventions in the prevention of CVD are widely known, but poor adherence and persistence to these necessitate an approach that aims to improve LDL-C lowering for CVD prevention.Nutraceuticals (targeted functional foods or dietary supplements of plant or microbial origin) are included in EU guidelines as lifestyle interventions and may provide an additional approach to controlling LDL-C levels when a pharmaceutical intervention is not (yet) indicated. However, among different nutraceuticals, the level of clinical evidence supportive of efficacy for lipid lowering needs to be considered. Meta-analyses of randomised clinical trials have demonstrated that some nutraceuticals (e.g. red yeast rice and berberine) and some nutraceutical combinations improve lipid profiles, including lowering of LDL-C, total cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Therefore, nutraceuticals may be considered in specific patient groups where there is appropriate evidence to support the efficacy and safety.
       
  • Pharmaceutical strategies for reducing LDL-C and risk of cardiovascular
           disease

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Atherosclerosis: X, Volume 1Author(s): Alberico L. Catapano, Lale Tokgözoğlu, Alberto Mello e Silva, Eric BruckertAbstractA key strategy in preventing cardiovascular (CV) disease is the reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). Statins are a crucial therapy for achieving LDL-C reductions, with the highest tolerated dose often prescribed, especially for patients who are at the greatest risk of CV disease. However, statin intolerance, heterogeneous responses to statins and non-adherence make alternative therapies necessary in some cases. Statins can be combined with a multitude of therapies with synergistic mechanisms of action to effectively manage lipid profiles, while improving safety and tolerability profiles. Addition of a cholesterol absorption inhibitor, bile acid sequestrant or fibrate to statin therapy leads to greater numbers of patients achieving and maintaining LDL-C goals. Furthermore, combination therapies can alter the plasma profiles of other molecules involved in hypercholesterolaemia, including triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. An additional strategy is proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibition therapy, for use in patients who are statin intolerant, patients with heterozygous or homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia, and patients at very high CV risk, as a potential means for achieving large LDL-C reductions and maintaining LDL-C goals. Clinical trials have demonstrated that PCSK9 inhibition therapy is not only effective but can also be combined with statin therapy to ensure greater reductions in LDL-C. Current, ongoing studies are investigating the efficacy of novel therapies, including selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) alpha modulators, PCSK9-specific ribonucleic acid (RNA) interference and anti-inflammatory therapies.
       
  • Atherogenic markers in predicting cardiovascular risk and targeting
           residual cardiovascular risk

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Atherosclerosis: X, Volume 1Author(s): Alberico L. Catapano, Lale Tokgözoğlu, Alberto Mello e Silva, Eric BruckertAbstractLow-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (LDL-C) is the primary target in cardiovascular (CV) disease prevention and is commonly used in estimating CV risk; however, alternative markers may be needed when LDL-C is not an appropriate marker (e.g. in the presence of low LDL-C levels or elevated triglyceride [TG] levels). Non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) and apolipoprotein B (apoB) are markers of atherogenic lipoproteins with evidenced associations with CV risk and are, therefore, recommended as secondary targets, appropriate for use in the presence of elevated TG levels. The reported strength of the associations of non-HDL-C and apoB in comparison to LDL-C is conflicting between studies, potentially due to discordance of the markers which can alter their predictive pattern.Although LDL-C levels are commonly managed with statin treatment, a residual risk of CV events still remains, and an abnormal lipid profile can persist. Combination therapy to further reduce LDL-C levels can be beneficial; a statin therapy combined with other LDL-C-lowering therapy further reduced the number of CV events. In addition, targeting other markers, including non-HDL-C, apoB, total cholesterol and TGs may also be beneficial, specifically in patients with low HDL-C and elevated TG levels. More clinical evidence is required before definitive recommendations can be made; however, a statin–fenofibrate combination demonstrated favourable reductions in major CV events in these specific patients.
