Washington: The so-called “good” cholesterol, or HDL is not always a good thing, at least for a certain group of patients, says a new study. It is widely known that raising HDL, or “good” cholesterol, and lowering LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, improves heart health.
“Our research is oriented around the ability to better identify patients at high risk. Identifying these patients and determining what puts them at high risk may be useful in choosing treatments tailored to the specific needs of particular patient subgroups. This gets us another step closer to achieving the goal of personalized medicine,” said Corsetti. The study was published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, a journal of the American Heart Association. ANI
