  IAS Position Paper
IAS Position Paper: Global Recommendations for the Management of Dyslipidemia.
The International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS) here updates its recommendations on treatment of high level of blood cholesterol and dyslipidemia for the purpose of reducing risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). The Writing Panel, made of 15 internationally renowned experts and chaired by dr Scott M. Grundy, reviewed existing evidence-based recommendations and consolidated them into an overall set of recommendations. For comments and suggestions please write us at positionpaper@athero.org.


  IAS - Pfizer IGCL Grant Update
The IAS - Pfizer Grant External Review Panel is in the process of reviewing and evaluating the full proposals prepared by our 16 winners of the LOI selection process. These proposals focus on projects addressing how to improve care for patients with medium or high levels of cardiovascular risk, with a particular focus on dyslipidemia. The evaluation process is very detailed and complex and includes more than 13 criteria all of which will carry a different weight in analyzing the proposals. The results will be available in April. We are very excited about the potential impact of these activities worldwide and appreciate the input from our member societies and their membership. Many thanks to all those who have contributed to the development and submission of the Letters of Intent as well as the Full Proposals currently under review.
