2/Throwback to medical school pathophysiology!

Remember how the #atherosclerotic process takes place in blood vessels? 🫀

Now, where does #aspirin exert its effect during this cascade? 🤔 Image
3/What do the most recent #RCTs inform us about the use of aspirin for primary prevention ⁉️

1/ Interesting thread via @NutritionMadeS3. I invite everyone to read through his before reading the remaining of mine here below…
2/ naturally, you’re discussing a topic that’s very near and dear to my research, @NutritionMadeS3. I’m certainly very interested in metabolic health as it relates to lipid profiles — particularly the “triad” of high LDLc, high HDLc, and low TG. (See mdpi.com/2218-1989/12/5…)
3/ But we should agree to recognizing a common problem. Rather than take several tweets in this thread to explain it, let me open with our conversation from last month where I posed this question for you regarding #LMHRs and #ASCVD at several points:
Read 9 tweets
1/ I'd love to take an opportunity to expand on this important topic, and if I may, suggest something important to watch for with some newly emerging data.

To @MichaelMindrum point, I too believe the #ApoB will demonstrate higher association with #ASCVD than #LDL #Cholesterol..
2/ But to be sure, ApoB can be best represented as:

(1) Non-LDL ApoB lipoproteins
- and -
(2) LDL ApoB lipoproteins

The first category is predominantly chylomicrons, VLDL, and IDL -- which associate very highly with ASCVD.
3/ You can think of category (1) as "Triglyceride Rich Lipoproteins" (TRL, aka "remnants") and category (2) as "Triglyceride Poor Lipoproteins" (TPL)

The population of #LMHRs have extremely high levels of ApoB. But this pattern is a mix of very *low* TRL and very high TPL.

So you've heard a lot of stuff, you've read a lot, maybe you listened to our podcast @cardionerds on it, and yet something is still missing.

TRIGLYCERIDES NEED A TWEETORIAL!

Let’s get right into it with 2 big points to start
#1: Lipids are insoluble in water. You’ve likely seen in this in science class or making salad dressing

What this means is that cholesterol and TG need to be transported with proteins in the body. So we add proteins + lipids and boom, we’ve got lipoproteins (LDL, ILD, VLDL, etc)
#2: The key to this TG story is Very Low-Density Lipoprotein (VLDL). VLDL is made by the liver of proteins, cholesterol, and TG

The ratio of TG to cholesterol depends on the size of the particle, with VLDL getting smaller as adipose and muscle pull TG out of circulating VLDL

9) Many risk factors modulate the propensity of LDL-C to traverse the endothelium and enter the arterial intima. See 🔓academic.oup.com/eurheartj/arti….
10) It now appears that the passage of #LDL into the #intima is not a merely passive process whereby the concentration in blood & the permeability of the endothelium determine LDL accumulation.
11) It’s #Transcytosis (an active process), through a vesicular pathway involving #caveolae, scavenger receptors (#SRB1) and activin like receptor kinase 1 (#ALK1). Hence for a given blood level of LDL-C the amount of atherosclerosis is variable.

#JACCCardioOnc #Tweetorial: Along the spectrum of cancer Tx, #YeSCCT has a lot to offer regarding identifying subclinical #ASCVD, excluding obstructive #cvCAD in cardiotoxicity when appropriate. #CardioOnc, as a field, can gain from incorporating CCT in practice.

🧵1/
#YeSCCT may identify subclinical #ASCVD in cancer patients & survivors. Reviewing previous non-gated thoracic CT scans for CAC may help identify subclinical #cvCAD and start prompt preventive Tx.

#JACCCardioOnc #CardioOnc #MedTwitter #CardioTwitter

2/
Several clinical scenarios in the context of cardiotoxicity may require ruling out obstructive #cvCAD. Cancer pts tend to have ⬆️ risk of complications from invasive procedures➡️ thrombocytopenia & hypercoagulable states. #YeSCCT may derive significant benefit. #JACCCardioOnc
