"Use of high potency statins for patients with established atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease: practice impact of the new cholesterol guidelines"
The recent prevention guidelines by the ACC/AHA have shifted away from low-density lipoprotein cholesterol targets and instead recommend fixed dose high potency statin (HPS) therapy for patients with established atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). We sought to determine practice patterns at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Health System prior to the release of these guidelines in order to identify areas for improvement.

"Oligonucleotide therapeutic approaches for allele silencing of hRLC-47K and hMHC-403Q mutations in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy"
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disease of the heart muscle and the most common cause of sudden death in young people and athletes. It is caused by heterozygotic missense mutations in genes encoding proteins of the cardiac sarcomere.

"Paradoxical Arterial Remodeling of the Proximal Segment of the Left Anterior Descending Artery Predicts Long-Term Mortality after Heart Transplantation"
Cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is characterized by diffuse intimal thickening with pathological coronary remodeling. This study aimed to investigate the impact of this combination on clinical prognosis after heart transplantation.

"Understanding Obesity Mediated Insulin Resistance Through Integrative Personal Omics Profiling (iPOP) During Weight Gain and Loss"
Obesity associated insulin resistance has long been recognized as a fundamental aspect of the etiology of type 2 diabetes. However, despite several reports showing the dysregulation of metabolic and inflammatory pathways in obesity, it is unclear if, and how these pathways and their interplay link obesity to insulin resistance.
