Previous studies have indicated that statins use is associated with risk of dementia, but presented controversial results. Medline, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Database were searched upda...
Statins, which are lipid-lowering agents, have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties that may affect the occurrence of various infectious diseases. We assessed whether statins increase the...
Heat shock proteins (HSP or stress proteins) are intracellular molecules that participate in physiological cell metabolism and growth, although they are known to be involved in many stress conditions....
There is no doubt nowadays that statins exert a diabetogenic action. The evidence comes from observational studies, randomised trials and meta-analyses. The relationship between statin use and new-ons...
Two previous meta-analyses evaluated the risk of cataracts associated with statins, but did not include relevant studies suggesting a cataratogenic effect.
To demonstrate a higher percent rate of achieved target lipid goals among patients at high cardiovascular risk using more potent lipid-lowering treatment options including high-potency sta...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of Crestor in high risk patients switched from higher doses of other statins in obtaining the new European Atherosclerosis Society (E...
Epidemiological studies have shown that serum cholesterol level is correlated with Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk, and that Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk increases with increasing L...

Effective risk management has its greatest benefits in application to insurance in order to avert or minimize financial liability. (From Slee & Slee: Health care terms, 2d ed)
Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
An absence or reduced level of Antithrombin III leading to an increased risk for thrombosis.
