Therapeutic targets to reduce cardiovascular disease in type II diabetes
SMi’s inaugural Diabetes, Cardiovascular & Renal Complications conference will be held on 28th & 29th November in London is the perfect forum to assess the changing spectrum of therapies in development for treating diabetes.
SMi is pleased to confirm Phil Ambery, Medical director, Cardiovascular and Metabolic R&D from GlaxoSmithKline as a speaker at their upcoming conference
Dr. Ambery will address the links between diabetes and CVD, Novel diabetes drugs and CVD and targeting multiple risk factors to reduce hyperlipidaemia, and prolong circulating glucose levels. This unique program brings together the latest research from those at the head of attenuating complications arising from hyperglycaemia, dyslipidaemia, atherosclerosis and fibrosis. This event is not to be missed!
Attending will enable you to
• Gain the knowledge and insights you require on how to utilise RAAS inhibition to preserve renal function and delay cardiovascular disease progression
• Hear from academic and industry teams on pre-clinical target validation for hyperkalaemia and renal fibrosis
• Evaluate new targets to reduce hypertension, hyperkalaemia and endothelial inflammation
• Develop strategies to utilise biomarkers and imaging for the development of novel cardiovascular and renal therapies
• Harness the "new" paradigm for diabetic nephropathy endpoints to improve your clinical trial design
