The International Lipid Expert Panel (ILEP)— the role of ‘optimal’ collaboration in the effective diagnosis and treatment of lipid disorders

When prof. Maciej Banach founded the International Lipid Expert Panel (ILEP) in 2015 he probably did not expect that just after 6 years it will be a worldwide recognized group of experts and simultaneously – very close friends– from almost 100 countries, working together to improve diagnosis and therapy especially in the countries, when optimal management in the field of preventive cardiology and lipid disorders is still a great challenge (e.g. CEE, SE & Asian countries).

ILEP was founded in order to suport the physicians from those countries, not only their every-day practice, but their research efforts, and to show their large impact and achievements not only on the national level, but also internationally.

It is due to their efforts and hard work >30 papers have been already published on behalf od ILEP, most of them highly recognized and highly cited, papers aimed to complete the existing guidelines and to give direct clinical and practical recommendations. And 6 next is ongoing and will be published by the end of the year
