It has been clearly shown that lowering low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) [most often with an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor] decreases the risk of a cardiovascular event. However, this risk reduction was, at most, 35% in clinical trials, meaning that many events could not be prevented....
HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors significantly reduce the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) events and CAD-related mortality in patients with and without established CAD. Consequently, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors have a central role within recommendations for lipid-modifying therapy. However,...
Strategies to delay progression of established renal disease have primarily been directed at examining the class of antihypertensive therapy and/or the level of blood pressure control. In diabetic renal disease many trials have noted a protective role of ACE inhibitor-based therapy over non-ACE...
