Dear Colleagues,

We have great pleasure in inviting you to attend the forthcoming 18th Annual Conference of Academy of Cardiology At Mumbai on 10th & 11th February 2018.

You may be aware that AOC has been organizing a theme based conference every year. Some of the themes covered in the previous meetings were -Acute Coronary Syndrome, STEMI, Hypertension, Stable Ischaemic Heart Disease, Heart Failure, Acute Cardiac Care, Thrombosis Management, Controversies in Cardiology & Cardiology Clinics | Bed Side to Therapeutics.

Last three decades or more have witnessed extensive research around cholesterol and lipids in the pathophysiology of atherosclerotic coronary heart disease. Subsequently research led to the development of molecules like statins and currently PCSK 9 Inhibitors to prevent atherosclerotic coronary artery disease.

However, lately there has been a robust campaign against the role of lipids as well as the lipid lowering agents in the causation & prevention of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. Result has been utter confusion among physicians, cardiologists & diabetologists as regards to importance of lipids & lipid lowering agents. You will agree that it is time that we reassess the importance of lipids & lipid lowering agents in the causation of atherosclerotic coronary heart disease. AOC has dedicated this year's theme to "LIPIDS - CURRENT CONTROVERIES & CONSENSUS”.

A galaxy of National and International faculty has been invited to participate. Please do join us.
