Exciting to see this finally out! It is difficult to overstate the amount of rigorous, thoughtful work (also a lot of regular, dogged work) put into performing, interpreting, and communicating this important analysis.

Mother nature randomizes people to different variants of ApoB particles which has a significant impact on cardiovascular outcomes. Note: These event rate reductions reflect a lifetime exposure to the ApoB variant and not a short term reduction in ApoB with a drug.

This study suggest that any of the benefit of the intervention will be proportional to their impact on apoB (and probably LDL-P since these are highly correlated)

ATTN LDL DENIERS - MT : When lowering TG OR LDLc, the clinical benefit of both approaches is likely related to the absolute reduction in ApoB particles (90% are LDLs). The figure says a thousand words 👇

Genetic data suggest that the cardiovascular protective effect of lower LDL and lower triglycerides are both mediated by a reduction in ApoB particle concentration. Basically, ApoB particles are what matters. Very interesting and I'm sure it will upset some people on Twitter...
