NLA Reaches 100 Lifetime Members

The National Lipid Association now has 100 lifetime members, which means $100,000 has been set aside for fellowship training programs in lipidology. The NLA is offering this program only through the end of 2013.

How does lifetime membership work? It’s simple:

REVEAL Study Results Reaffirms Importance of Cholesterol and Heart Disease

The National Lipid Association (NLA) welcomes the results of the REVEAL trial which demonstrated that reductions in cholesterol levels with anacetrapib were associated with a reduction in cardiovascular events.  Specifically, cholesterol drug anacetrapib produced reductions in low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, non-high density lipoprotein (non-HDL) cholesterol levels, lipoprotein(a) levels and a profound increase in high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels.  These favorable lipid changes were associated with a significant reduction in cardiovascular events
