Serum Circulating Fatty Acid Synthase As A Diagnostic Biomarker For Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia

This activity was presented at 2020 VRIC as part of Abstract Session 2: Atherosclerotic Disease and Role of the Immune System.

Knowledge Strategy
This study showed that circulating fatty acid synthase (cFAS) is independently associated with CLTI but not DM. Future studies may explore using cFAS as biomarker for severity of PAD to guide clinical management, or as a target for development of medical therapeutics.

Professional Practice Gap
This study evaluates the potential association between serum biomarkers and clinical severity in patients with diabetes and peripheral artery disease. 

Learning Objectives

To create a virtual environment for the exchange of basic and translational vascular science that stimulates thoughtful discussion and motivates participants to discover solutions to important problems affecting vascular patients.
