lipitor reviews 2015

The long-term efficacy and safety of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) have been established in large multicenter trials. Inhibition of this enzyme, however, results in decreased synthesis of cholesterol and other products downstream of mevalonate, such as CoQ10 or dolichol. This was a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study that examined the effects of CoQ10 and placebo in hypercholesterolemic patients treated by atorvastatin. Eligible patients were given 10mg/day of atorvastatin for 16 weeks. Half of the patients (n=24) were supplemented with 100mg/day of CoQ10, while the other half (n=25) were given the placebo. Serum LDL-C levels in the CoQ10 group decreased by 43%, while in the placebo group by 49%. The HDL-C increment was more striking in the CoQ10 group than in the placebo group. All patients showed definite reductions of plasma CoQ10 levels in the placebo group, by 42%. All patients supplemented with CoQ10 showed striking increases in plasma CoQ10 by 127%. In conclusion atorvastatin definitely decreased plasma CoQ10 levels and supplementation with CoQ10 increased their levels. These changes in plasma CoQ10 levels showed no relation to the changes in serum AST, ALT and CK levels. Further studies are needed, however, for the evaluation of CoQ10 supplementation in statin therapy.

Although chronic inflammation contributes to the development of tendinopathy, study results advocate for a positive role of PGE2 in tendon healing during the acute inflammatory phase that follows tendon surgical repair. It is therefore suggested that ATV should be further investigated as a possible modality to improve tendon healing.

Atorvastatin (ATV) is a specific competitive inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-2-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A reductase. Recently, statins have shown pleiotropic effects such as anti-inflammation and bone stimulation. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effectiveness of 1.2% ATV as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) in the treatment of intrabony defects (IBDs).

The ability to modify the enzymatic processes involved in promoting atherosclerotic plaque disruption and to serially monitor atherosclerotic evolution could provide novel information in the management of patients with atherosclerosis. We studied the effects of a statin (atorvastatin) and its combination with an acyl-CoA:cholesterol O-acyltransferase (ACAT) inhibitor (avasimibe) on atherosclerotic regression and plaque stability as measured by matrix metalloproteinase 1 and 3 (MMP-1 and MMP-3) levels. Watanabe Heritable Hyperlipidemic (WHHL) rabbits treated with atorvastatin alone experienced an attenuated increase in atherosclerotic burden versus controls as determined by MR imaging. The mean vessel wall area (VWA) prior to drug therapy was 5.57 +/- 0.01 mm2. The VWA increased to 6.71 +/- 0.03 and 7.16 +/- 0.03 mm2, respectively, in atorvastatin-treated and control groups (p < 0.0001 for both). The combination of atorvastatin and avasimibe induced a significant regression of the previously established atherosclerotic lesions, with the VWA decreasing to 4.54 +/- 0.04 mm2 (p = 0.009). Atorvastatin alone induced a nonsignificant reduction in the percent staining of MMP-1 in atherosclerotic lesions, but the combination treatment with avasimibe led to a significant reduction versus controls (p = 0.005). However, a reduction in MMP-3 staining was significant for rabbits treated with both atorvastatin alone (p = 0.007) and in combination with avasimibe (p = 0.04) versus controls. In this animal model, the addition of avasimibe to atorvastatin has beneficial effects on both atherosclerotic plaque regression and stabilization.

We selected healthy normolipidaemic, elderly subjects (n = 8, mean age 80.1 years) and young subjects (n = 7, mean age 21.8 years). All had a normal electrocardiograph and blood pressure, and signs or symptoms of cardiovascular disease were absent. The subjects were studied for 2 days, with 6 weeks of atorvastatin treatment in between. Forearm blood flow (FBF) was measured by computerized venous occlusion plethysmography upon intra-arterial infusion of acetylcholine (ACh; 30 and 90 ng/kg/min) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT; 0.3 and 0.9 ng/kg/min) as endothelium-dependent vasodilators, and sodium nitroprusside (SNP; 30 and 90 ng/kg/min) as an endothelium-independent vasodilator.

In this before and after comparison study with controls, group one included 55 subjects aged > or =40 years requiring statins for cardiovascular indications who were started on atorvastatin (10 mg/day). Group two assigned to receive placebo were men and women chosen from the same geographical area and matched for age, sex, education and presence of hypertension and diabetes mellitus. Assessment was done with the Mini-Mental State Examination, Digit Span, Picture Test (average and delayed), Trail Making Test, Controlled Oral Word Association Test, Digit Symbol Substitution Test and Auditory Vigilance and Digit Vigilance Test at baseline and after 6 months. Changes between baseline and 6 months in the above parameters of mental function were compared using suitable statistical tests in the atorvastatin and placebo groups. To limit experiment-wise error, performance scores were grouped into five cognitive domains, which were labeled as attention, psychomotor speed, mental flexibility, working memory and memory retrieval. Summary effect sizes were estimated as z-scores.

Treatment with atorvastatin and fenofibrate reduced serum cholesterol by 30 % and 21 % (p = 0.046) (p-values for differences between treatment groups), triglycerides by 32 % and 45 %, LDL cholesterol by 28 % and 16 %, and increased HDL cholesterol by 3 % and 6 %, respectively. Atorvastatin and fenofibrate treatment resulted in the following changes of apoB and LDL subfractions: LDL-1 (1.019 - 1.031 kg/L) - 31 % and + 15 % (p = 0.028); LDL-2 (1.031 - 1.034 kg/L) - 14 % and + 57 % (p = 0.028); LDL-3 (1.034 - 1.037 kg/L) - 20 % and + 30 % (p = 0.028); LDL-4 (1.037 - 1.040 kg/L) - 25 % and - 6 %; LDL-5 (1.040 - 1.044 kg/L) - 29 % and - 38 %; and LDL-6 (1.044 - 1.063 kg/L) - 39 % and - 55 % (p = 0.028). As a consequence, fenofibrate reduced LDL density significantly (p = 0.028 versus atorvastatin).

ATV at doses of 1 and 5 mg/kg reduced mucosal damage and inflammation, as well as the levels of cytokines, nitrite and myeloperoxidase activity on the 5th and 10th day of OM and immunostaining for iNOS on the 5th day of OM.ATV at 1 mg/kg increased cheek pouch NP-SH when compared to 5-FU groups on the 10th day of OM. The association between ATV 5 mg/kg and 5-FU decreased the survival rate, amplified the leukopenia of animals, increased transaminase serum levels and caused liver lesions. We also detected the presence of Gram-negative bacillus in the blood of 100% of the animals treated with ATV 5 mg/kg + 5-FU.

Although statins vary in their effectiveness in lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, there is little evidence that the degree of these changes can explain cardiac risk reduction in Japan. Our objective was to compare the efficacy of statins on serum lipid levels and to explore the association between those changes and cardiac events in patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

A total of 33 Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: control group, diabetic group, and diabetic group with atorvastatin treatment (receiving 50 mg/kg qd atorvastatin). Rats were sacrificed at the end of 4 weeks, and the aortas were obtained. The pathological changes were observed by Hematoxylin and eosin (HE) staining. A cDNA microarray analysis was carried out, and the results were analyzed by the random variance model (RVM) t-test, Stc analysis, Stc-Gene Ontology (GO) analysis, Stc-pathway analysis, and GeneFunNet analysis. Then reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to evaluate the mRNA expression of Cathepsin S (Cat S),Which was one of the significant genes obtained by statistical analysis, in the aortas of rats in control group (Wistar rats), DM group (Goto Kakisaki rats) and atorvastatin treated DM group (Goto Kakisaki rats with 50 mg/kg qd atorvastatin) for 12 weeks.

Patients previously not treated with a lipid-lowering agent (n = 20; mean age 49.15 +/- 3.28 years) were treated with either 10 mg/day of Simvastatin (n = 11), or Atorvastatin (n = 9) for 4 months. Fourteen additional patients were recruited from the same clinic at the same hospital as a control group. The medication of these latter patients was unaltered for 4 months and the same parameters were measured as for the statin groups. Serum concentrations of zinc, copper, caeruloplasmin, selenium, glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and C-reactive protein (CRP) were measured together with their lipid profiles pre- and post-treatment. In addition to reducing serum total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (p < 0.0001), statin treatment was associated with a significant reduction in mean serum zinc (9%, p = 0.03), copper (9%, p < 0.01), caeruloplasmin (24%, p < 0.05), and median CRP (45%, p < 0.03). Similar changes were not observed in the control patients. No significant effects were observed for serum selenium, copper/caeruloplasmin ratio, or GPx (p > 0.05) in either statin or control groups. These changes may be related to the known anti-inflammatory properties of the statin class of drugs.

(1) Simvastatin and pravastatin are the two reference statins for type IIA and type IIB hypercholesterolaemia because they have the best-documented protective effect against cardiovascular events. Simvastatin and pravastatin are also the reference statins for familial heterozygous hypercholesterolaemia, though there is no evidence that they prevent cardiovascular events in this group. Statins are not very effective in familial homozygous hypercholesterolaemia. (2) Rosuvastatin is the sixth statin to arrive on the French market. The fifth, cerivastatin, was withdrawn from the market in 2001 because of serious adverse effects. (3) Rosuvastatin has not been assessed in terms of morbidity or mortality. The results of comparative trials in type IIA and type IIB hypercholesterolaemia suggest that rosuvastatin is slightly more active than simvastatin, pravastatin and atorvastatin on some lipid parameters after a few weeks of treatment. (4) Rosuvastatin has not been compared with simvastatin or pravastatin in familial heterozygous hypercholesterolaemia. One trial showed it to be slightly more effective than atorvastatin on cholesterol levels. According to one trial, rosuvastatin does not appear to be more effective than atorvastatin in homozygous forms. (5) In clinical trials the adverse effects of rosuvastatin were similar to those of other statins, with the exception of renal adverse effects. We don't know whether rosuvastatin is more or less likely than other statins to cause rhabdomyolysis. (6) Clinical trials reported some cases of proteinuria and renal failure suggesting there is a need for more thorough assessment in long-term trials. (7) In practice, statins with the best-documented benefits (simvastatin and pravastatin) should be used first for cardiovascular prevention in patients with hypercholesterolaemia.

In diabetic patients, the plasma concentration of atorvastatin lactone was significantly higher than that of atorvastatin acid throughout the 24-hour sampling period. The optimal population pharmacokinetic model for atorvastatin acid and atorvastatin lactone consisted of a two- and one-compartment model, respectively, with interconversion between atorvastatin acid and atorvastatin lactone. Parent drug was absorbed orally with a population estimate first-order absorption rate constant of 0.457 h(-1). The population estimates of apparent oral clearance (CL/F) of atorvastatin acid to atorvastatin lactone, intercompartmental clearance (Q/F), apparent central compartment volume of distribution after oral administration (V(1)/F) and apparent peripheral compartment volume of distribution after oral administration (V(2)/F) for atorvastatin acid were 231 L/h, 315 L/h, 325 L and 4910 L, respectively. The population estimates of apparent total clearance of atorvastatin lactone (CL(M)/F), apparent intercompartmental clearance of atorvastatin lactone (Q(M)/F) and apparent volume of distribution of atorvastatin lactone after oral administration (V(M)/F) were 85.4 L/h, 166 L/h and 249 L, respectively. The final covariate model indicated that the liver enzyme lactate dehydrogenase was related to CL/F and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) was related to Q/F. Importantly, diabetic patients have 3.56 times lower CL(M)/F than nondiabetic patients, indicating significantly lower clearance of atorvastatin lactone in these patients. Moreover, in a multivariate population pharmacokinetics model, diabetes status was the only significant covariate predicting the values of the CL(M)/F. Correspondingly, the concentration of atorvastatin acid remaining in the microsomal incubation was not significantly different between nondiabetic and diabetic liver samples, whereas the concentration of atorvastatin lactone was significantly higher in the samples from diabetic donors. In vitro studies, using recombinant enzymes, revealed that cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 is the major CYP enzyme responsible for the biotransformation of atorvastatin lactone.

These results suggest that in vivo (1) statins directly increase PCSK9 expression while (2) fibrates affect PCSK9 expression indirectly through its modulation of cholesterol levels and (3) that these therapies could be improved by combination with a PCSK9 inhibitor, constituting a novel hypercholesterolemic therapy, since PCSK9 was significantly upregulated by both treatments.

Prescribing of statins showed an increasing trend in all developed countries, during the last two decades. The aim of this study was to research the trends in statin consumption in the period from 2004 to 2012 as well as trends of cardiovascular mortality during the 1990 to 2012 period, and to compare them between Croatia and several neighbouring countries. Data on statin expenditures and consumption expresed in defined daily doses per 1000 inhabitants per day (DDD/TID), were taken from annual reports of Croatian Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED). Data on crude mortality rates and standardized cardiovascular mortality rates, were taken from the Croatian Health Statistics Yearbooks. The utilization of statins increased by 196.7% during the observed period, with the highest consumption of atorvastatin and simvastatin. Financial expenditure of statins expanded at much faster rate in comparison with overall drug costs. Cardiovascular mortality rates decreased slightly, while maintaining higher level in comparison with some neighbouring countries.

No significant effects of statin therapy on arterial inflammation of the aorta were seen as measured by FDG-PET. However, statin therapy reduced non-calcified plaque volume and high-risk coronary plaque features in HIV-infected patients. Further studies should assess whether reduction in high-risk coronary artery disease translates into effective prevention of cardiovascular events in this at-risk population.

In a large randomized trial of statin therapy in patients of South-Asian origin with hypercholesterolemia, 740 patients in the United States and Canada received 6 weeks of treatment with rosuvastatin 10 or 20 mg or atorvastatin 10 or 20 mg. A total of 485 patients (66%) were categorized as being at high risk of coronary heart disease and had a National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III treatment goal of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol <100 mg/dl (<2.6 mmol/L). LDL cholesterol decreased by 45% with rosuvastatin 10 mg versus 40% with atorvastatin 10 mg (p = 0.0023) and by 50% with rosuvastatin 20 mg versus 47% with atorvastatin 20 mg (p = NS). National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III LDL cholesterol goal achievement rates in high-risk patients (all patients) were 76% (79%) and 88% (89%) with rosuvastatin 10 and 20 mg, respectively, compared with 70% (76%) and 81% (85%) with atorvastatin 10 and 20 mg, respectively. Rosuvastatin and atorvastatin were well tolerated. There were no clinically relevant buy lipitor differences between statins in adverse events or incidence of creatine kinase >10 times the upper limit of normal, alanine aminotransferase >3 times the upper limit of normal on 2 consecutive occasions, or proteinuria or hematuria over the relatively short duration of treatment. In conclusion, statin therapy was well tolerated and effective in decreasing LDL cholesterol in patients of South-Asian origin, with the 10- and 20-mg doses of rosuvastatin and atorvastatin allowing most patients to reach recommended LDL cholesterol goals.

3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA)-reductase inhibitors (statins) are mainly considered for long-term use and often constitute part of a multiple-drug regime. Besides common adverse drug effects, such as nausea, abdominal discomfort and headaches, all statins harbour the risk of myopathy and fatal rhabdomyolysis. Usually, the frequency of myopathy is low but the incidence increases during concomitant drug therapy. Statins do not differ in their pharmacodynamic property. Therefore, the differences in their pharmacokinetic profiles, i.e. affinity for metabolising enzymes, constitute the rationale for choosing a specific statin especially for combination therapy. In order to point out harmful combinations of therapeutics, this buy lipitor review summarises the pharmacokinetic data of six clinically used statins (atorvastatin, cerivastatin, fluvastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin and simvastatin) with special regard to metabolism and drug interactions. In summary, statins that lack a significant hepatic metabolism, i.e. pravastatin, or that are metabolised by more than one cytochrome P450 isoenzyme, i.e. fluvastatin, or whose metabolism is taken over by other cytochrome P450 isoenzymes in case of blockage of the main metabolising enzyme, i.e. cerivastatin, are the least prone to drug interactions. Nevertheless, in case of a specific concomitant drug therapy known to be associated with a higher risk of adverse events, i.e. cyclosporin A and statin, clinical symptoms of myopathy and biochemical data, such as increasing serum creatine phosphokinase, should be monitored carefully.

Among the mechanisms of the cellular and molecular components and processes, oxLDL increased the valve calcification-related signaling pathway by increasing extracellular bone-matrix protein that produces osteoblastic gene markers via the Wnt/GSK-3β/β-catenin pathway. And atorvastatin also prevented any oxLDL-induced effects through the same pathway, this may represent a new therapeutic target buy lipitor for CAVD, as an alternative to traditional valve replacement surgery.

Amino-bisphosphonates are antiresorptive drugs for the treatment of osteolytic bone metastases, which are frequently caused by breast and other solid tumors. Like statins, amino-bisphosphonates inhibit the mevalonate pathway. Direct anti-tumor effects of amino-bisphosphonates and buy lipitor statins have been proposed, although high concentrations are required to achieve these effects. Here, we demonstrate that the treatment of different human breast cancer cell lines (MDA-MB-231, MDA-Bone, and MDA-Met) by combined inhibition of the mevalonate pathway using statins and zoledronic acid at the same time significantly reduces the concentrations required to achieve a meaningful anti-tumor effect over a single agent approach (50% reduction of cell vitality and 4-fold increase of apoptosis; p < 0.05). The effects were mediated by suppressed protein geranylation that caused an accumulation of GTP-bound RhoA and CDC42. Importantly, the knockdown of both proteins prior to mevalonate pathway inhibition reduced apoptosis by up to 65% (p < 0.01), indicating the accumulation of the GTP-bound GTPases as the mediator of apoptosis. Our results point to effective anti-tumor effects in breast cancer by the combination of statins and zoledronic acid and warrant further validation in preclinical settings.

Endothelial senescence is thought to play a role in CAD (coronary artery disease). miR-34a (microRNA-34a) and other SIRT1 (silent information regulator 1)-related miRs have recently been found to target SIRT1 leading to endothelial senescence. In the present study, we investigated whether SIRT1-related miRs, including miR-9, miR-34a, miR-132, miR-181a, miR-195, miR-199a, miR-199b and miR-204, and SIRT1 were expressed in EPCs (endothelial progenitor cells) obtained from patients with CAD, and whether statins (atorvastatin or rosuvastatin) affected these levels. To determine the effects of miR-34a on SIRT1, cultured EPCs transfected with miR-34a were analysed for total SIRT1 protein levels. EPCs were obtained from 70 patients with CAD and 48 subjects without CAD. Patients with CAD were randomized to 8 months of treatment with atorvastatin or rosuvastatin. EPCs were obtained from peripheral blood at baseline and after 8 months of statin therapy. Levels of miRs and SIRT1 in EPCs were measured by real-time RT-PCR (reverse transcription-PCR) and FACS. Functional approaches to miR-34a have shown that transfection of miR-34a into EPCs resulted in regulation of SIRT1 expression. Levels of miR-34a were higher in the CAD group than in the non-CAD group, whereas levels of SIRT1 protein were lower in the CAD group than in the non-CAD group. There were no significant differences in other miRs (miR-9, miR-132, miR-181a, miR-195, miR-199a, miR-199b and miR-204) between the two groups. Levels of Aggrenox Generic Name miR-34a were mildly negatively correlated with SIRT1 protein levels. A randomized clinical study has shown that the atorvastatin group had markedly decreased miR-34a levels and increased SIRT1 levels, whereas the rosuvastatin group showed no change in these levels. Levels of other miRs remained unchanged in the atorvastatin and rosuvastatin groups. In conclusion the results of the present study suggest that miR-34a may regulate SIRT1 expression in EPCs and that atorvastatin up-regulates SIRT1 expression via inhibition of miR-34a, possibly contributing to the beneficial effects of atorvastatin on endothelial function in CAD.

The objective of this study was to determine whether the long-term administration of an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, atorvastatin, confers protective effects against stroke events in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSPs). Atorvastatin (2 mg/kg, 20 mg/kg) or vehicle was orally administered to 8-week-old SHRSPs for 11 weeks. The survival ratio and stroke incidence were calculated, and plasma lipids and plasma levels of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), a circulating endogenous Avodart Mg competitive inhibitor of NO synthase, were measured after sacrifice. The effect of atorvastatin on local cerebral blood flow (l-CBF) was also determined in 13-week-old SHRSPs after treatment with 20 mg/kg atorvastatin daily for 5 weeks. The survival ratios at 19 weeks of age were 15, 30, and 50% in the vehicle, low-dose (2 mg/kg), and high-dose groups (20 mg/kg), respectively. The survival ratio was significantly higher in the high-dose group than in the vehicle group. The incidence of stroke was significantly lower in the high-dose group than in the vehicle group. The levels of ADMA were 0.81+/-0.18 (mean+/-S.D.), 0.62+/-0.09, and 0.61+/-0.06 micromol/l in the vehicle, low-dose, and high-dose groups, respectively. Atorvastatin administration significantly reduced the ADMA levels without affecting the levels of plasma lipids. The level of l-CBF tended to be higher in the treated group, but not to a significant extent. Thus, atorvastatin was determined to confer a protective effect against hypertension-based stroke. The data suggest that the efficacy of the statin for stroke protection may be partially involved in the improvement of endothelial function via NO production and reduction of ADMA. Statins may confer useful protection against not only atherosclerosis-based stroke, but also hypertension-based stroke.

Simvastatin and atorvastatin were incubated with endothelial cells for 12 h before stimulation with phorbol myristate acetate or tumour necrosis factor-alpha, for times suitable to assess the endothelial tube differentiation on Matrigel and COX-2 and MMPs activities, proteins, and mRNA expressions. At 0.1-10 micromol/L, both statins reduced COX-2 expression and activity, without affecting COX-1. The statin effect was reversed Lexapro Best Dosage by mevalonate and geranylgeranyl-pyrophosphate and mimicked by the Rho inhibitor C3 transferase, indicating the involvement of Rho in the signal transduction pathway leading to COX-2 expression. In parallel, statins, as well as COX-2 inhibitors, reduced the MMP-9 stimulated release and the endothelial tubular differentiation.

At all time points, a significantly greater percentage of patients on rosuvastatin treatment achieved the NCEP ATP III LDL-C goal of <100 mg/dl Dosage Prednisone (2.5 mmol/l), the 2003 European LDL-C target of <2.5 or 3.0 mmol/l (100 or 115 mg/dl) and the LDL-C goal of <70 mg/dl (1.8 mmol/l), a goal suggested for very high-risk patients (p < 0.001 for all). Rosuvastatin also achieved significantly greater improvements in components of the atherogenic lipid profile versus atorvastatin. Both treatments were well tolerated.

Using serial intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), we identified independent predictors of changes in coronary plaque size in relation to serum lipid levels. One hundred three patients with nonstenotic coronary plaques underwent baseline and 12-month follow-up IVUS studies; 54 patients (52%) were treated with statins. Standard IVUS analyses were performed. Baseline IVUS study showed no statistical differences in mean external elastic membrane, lumen, and plaque/media (P&M) area between statin-treated and nonstatin-treated patients. Although there was an increase in mean P&M cross-sectional area in nonstatin-treated patients, mean P&M cross-sectional area decreased in statin-treated patients (0.11 +/- 0.24 vs -0.20 +/- 0.30 mm(2), p <0.001). There was a positive relation between changes in mean P&M area and follow-up low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level (r = 0.430, p <0.001), follow-up total cholesterol level (r = 0.365, p <0.001), changes in LDL cholesterol level (r = 0 Cipro Cost .312, p = 0.002), and changes in total cholesterol level (r = 0.252, p = 0.012). In multivariate linear regression analysis, the only independent predictor of changes in mean P&M area was follow-up LDL cholesterol level (r = 0.469, p <0.001, 95% confidence interval 0.003 to 0.006). The cut-off value of follow-up LDL cholesterol for no change or a decrease in mean P&M area was <100 mg/dl at regression analysis. In conclusion, the present 12-month follow-up IVUS study showed that follow-up LDL cholesterol level was the only independent predictor of changes in coronary plaque size. When patients achieved a follow-up LDL cholesterol level <100 mg/dl, regression or no progression of coronary plaque was expected. Aggressive lipid-lowering treatments with statins to decrease the follow-up LDL cholesterol level to <100 mg/dl are recommended.
