Title : Precision medicine for a personalized care in dyslipidaemia


Dyslipidaemia comprises of abnormal lipid components and refers mainly to increased levels of LDL, non HDL particles and triglycerides while decreased levels of HDL Dyslipidaemia is a common and independent modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Besides quantitative measurement, qualitative assessment of these components is also essential and therefore particles like Lipoprotein (a) and Apo-B should be taken into account. Unlike in the past where dyslipidaemia was treated mainly based on their quantitative levels, there is a paradigm shift in providing a more personalized care to patients. This is based on assessment of cardiovascular risk of individual patient which allows choosing the right strategy of therapy for them. This would include using the right intensity statin therapy in the correct dose for a category or level of cardiovascular risk. In addition, there is now more emphasis on making use of other lipid lowering drugs like Ezetimibe, PCSK-9 Inhibitor, Fibrates and Omega 3 Fatty Acid. Adoption of these strategies are based on evidence derived from several well designed randomized control trials that have shown to lead to better cardiovascular outcome. It is therefore vital that clinicians are aware of this concept of precision Medicine so that prescription for managing dyslipidaemia is more cost effective and lifesaving.
