Abstract

Targeting HDL-C has, to date, not led to changes in the cardiovascular outcomes. Novel therapeutic advances target the HDL function. In keeping with the recent 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guideline on the treatment of blood cholesterol to reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular risk in adults, the major focus of prevention lies with LDL-cholesterol reduction.
