The role of chronic inflammation in the pathology and progression of immune-mediated diseases of the skin, joints, and bowel is well-established. However, there is an emerging appreciation for the role of chronic inflammation in cardiovascular disease as a major driver of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular events. Thus, many of the immune- targeted biologics that have begun to revolutionize the management of skin, joint, and bowel diseases may have a therapeutic role in cardiovascular disease as well.

In this lecture, learn about the areas of overlap and intersection between chronic inflammation and cardiovascular disease, and the implications of this relationship on treatment.
