Association of Statin Use with Risk and Outcome of Acute Kidney Injury in Community-Acquired Pneumonia
Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, 06/08/2012
Murugan R et al. – In a large cohort of patients hospitalized with pneumonia, statins did not reduce the risk for AKI. Among patients with AKI, statin use was not associated with lower risk for death at 1 year. The higher risk for AKI observed among statin users may be due to indication bias.
