Allison Reiss, MD, head of the Inflammation Section of the Winthrop Research Institute in Mineola, N.Y., points out that chronic inflammation due to RA causes changes in the lining of the blood vessels and increases the likelihood that cholesterol will deposit in the vessel wall. "There's also increasing evidence that when patients have higher levels of inflammation and RA, the severity of cholesterol deposits is unpredictable, leading to difficulty in assessing the risk of heart attack," she says.

Identifying patients at high risk for heart disease is a challenge, as is knowing which prevention strategies can positively affect heart disease outcomes. The risk factors identified through the famous Framingham Heart Study, which has tracked heart disease and outcomes among three generations of families, underestimate the risk for heart disease in patients with RA. The same is true with the SCORE method, a heart disease risk assessment model developed in Europe.
"Right now, we don't know which RA patient is going to need more aggressive therapy," says Reiss. "Additionally, it's uncertain what therapy is going to be effective because the standard therapies that target the lipid profile may not be warranted. It's not known if statins are helpful in RA patients. Reiss adds that new risk scores that are more specific for the RA population are being developed to identify those at greater risk: "It's more of a personalized medicine approach for testing patients."

"It acts like a machine gun," says Reiss, "but we need a pistol, with fewer side effects."

At the Winthrop Research Institute, a new study is underway led by Reiss, who has dedicated much of her career to researching RA, pain management, and the increased risks for heart disease and heart attack. "The goal of my research program is to predict which RA patients are most vulnerable to developing heart disease so we can target appropriate preventative and treatment measures to improve the quality of life for these individuals," she says.
...
"Our ultimate goal," Reiss says, "is to see how these agents could improve medical treatment of heart disease in patients with RA."

Victoza "is a relatively new medication, given by daily injection," said Dr. Allison Reiss, who runs the inflammation laboratory at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y.

Still, the long-term effectiveness of the drug is unknown, Reiss added. "It will be important to follow these patients over the next few years to see whether [Victoza] benefits continue and to investigate how it is working," she said.
...
Reiss noted that because of this activity, Victoza can help spur weight loss -- and that might be the prime factor driving the improvements in heart health.
