Current treatments for atherosclerosis use markers and therapeutic targets that are consequences of the disease. Aterovax SA is attempting a more direct route. By basing its research and pipeline on sPLA2, a family of secreted phospholipases that are mediators in the inflammatory process involved in atherosclerosis, it hopes to create products that are either predictive of cardiovascular disease rather than simply diagnostic, or that can stop the development of unstable atherosclerotic plaques.
