The type and level of lipids in the blood is now known to play a crucial role in the risk of cardiovascular disease, and researchers in cardiology and other medical specialties here systematically review the literature to evaluate and interpret the available evidence on various approaches and products for controlling the level of different lipids. Their topics include how much evidence is enough, epidemiological aspects of lipid and lipoprotein levels in relation to cardiovascular diseases, whether raising HDL protects against atherosclerosis, the optimal treatment of patients with familial combined hyperlipidemia, managing lipid and lipoprotein disorders in children, the link between chronic inflammatory diseases and cardiovascular risk, dealing with inborn errors in cholesterol and bile acid biosynthesis, and when to fear statin interactions.
