While PCSK9 inhibitors have been shown to help patients lower their cholesterol levels, there are still questions about potential side effects as well as when and how the medication will be made affordable and available to patients.

Giugliano was one of thousands of cardiologists in attendance at the European Soceity of Cardiology's Annual Congress in London and said many doctors on both sides of the Atlantic agreed that it can be a valuable tool when it is made largely available to patients.
