Atherosclerosis, the underlying condition predisposing cardiovascular events, such as a myocardial infarction or a stroke, is classically considered as the accumulation of lipids in the arterial wall. These days we are aware that this is not a passive process, and that arherosclerotic plaques are the product of a complex interplay of lipids, the endothelium and immune cells. Identifying the dominating process in individual patients may eventually lead to earlier recognition of cardiovascular risk and targeted prevention. Sophie Moens’s aim is to identify subjects who are at increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, but are not recognised or optimally treated by current guidelines. She focused specifically on lipid-lowering and anti-inflammatory treatments.
