Current Opinion in Lipidology, 07/31/2012
Bulbulia R et al. – Lipid–lowering therapy with statins is cost–effective for a wider range of patients than currently recommended. Intensive statin therapy is associated with larger reductions in vascular risk, and lower LDL–C targets (particularly for higher–risk individuals) should help reduce vascular mortality and major vascular morbidity substantially.
