This is a multi-center, open label observational study conducted over 26 weeks. Approximately 2,500 high-risk patients with an elevated LDL-C level (> 2.5 mmol/L) will be enrolled. Patients meeting all inclusion criteria and having none of the exclusion criteria at Visit 1 (Screening) will be included in the study. Eligible patients that agree to participate and sign an informed consent will be treated with either statin therapy (increased or started or switched) or combinatio...
Statin therapy does not fully eliminate the cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk associated with low high density lipoprotein-C (HDL-C) and high triglyceride levels. It is currently unknown what would be the best treatment option for patients with mixed hyperlipidemia who fail to meet their lipid targets with statin monotherapy at conventional does, i.e. high dose rosuvastatin or conventional statin dose plus micronized fenofibrate or conventional statin dose plus niacin/laropipra...
To compare clinical safety & efficacy of fixed-high potent statin therapy (according to 2013 ACC/AHA guideline) vs. targeted LDL-C goal statin therapy (LDL
Statin could decrease AF burden
In South Asian Canadians with documented coronary artery disease or diabetes and hypercholesterolemia with LDL-C levels > 2.0 mmol/L after 4 weeks of monotherapy with any statin: To compare the percent (%) of patients who achieve an LDL-C concentration of 2.0mmol/L after a 6-week course of treatment with ezetimibe 10 mg/day co-administered with any statin at any dose versus doubling of the current statin dose.
Statin is a preventive medicine for hepatitis B and hepatitis C which decreases the risk turning into liver cancer,however, the investigators also discovered that patients taking Statin live longer than patients who didn't take Statin in the incidence of liver cancer death cases.
This study will enroll patients who previously were not able to tolerate being on a statin medication due to muscle-related side effects. Research has shown that many people who have muscle symptoms on statin therapy do not experience the same side effects if they try it again later. This study is part of a larger effort to: - See how common it is for patients to still be intolerant of statin medication after trying it a second time; and - For those patients ...
The study explores efficacy and safety of the lipid-lowering therapy with CRESTOR in statin-naive patients and in patients with previously unsuccessful statin therapy. This study was designed to investigate the dynamic of the lipid parameters and therapy tolerability during 8-10 weeks treatment with CRESTOR
A Multi-center, Randomized, Double-blind, Parallel Phase Ⅳ Study to Explore the Efficacy of Statin/Choline Fenofibrate Combination Therapy vs Statin Monotherapy in Patients With Inadequately Controlled TG Despite Receiving Statin Monotherapy
To compare the percent (%) change in plasma LDL-C concentration, after a six week course of treatment with ezetimibe 10 mg/day co-administered with an existing statin versus doubling of the existing statin dose
The investigator hypothesizes that pre-operative statin use is neuroprotective at maximal doses. The goals are to determine the safety, feasibility, and efficacy of maximizing statin doses for two weeks prior to CEA using change in performance on a battery neuropsychometric tests as outcome measure. Study will recruit patients based on their preexisting statin regimen. We hypothesize that in asymptomatic CEA patients: 1) Pre-operative statin use is neuroprotective agains...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the mechanism of statin-related myopathy by evaluating muscle samples before and after statin exposure.
One of the most effective drug in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease is statins. The protective effects of statin on developement of cardiovascular disease has been demonstrated in elderly individuals aged over 75 years. Since side effects of statin are more common in elderly individuals than in younger individuals, clinical guidelines recommend that use of low intensity statin is considered in elderly individuals. However, there are few randomized clinical trials...
It remains unknown if the association between moderate to low intensity statin therapy and ezetimibe and nutraceuticals might have a therapeutic role in high-intensity statin intolerant patients
The study demonstrated that either statin or metformin served as notable use in reducing the incidence of many cancers.
This is a randomized, open label, parallel group comparison study. Following a 1-week screening period, patients will be randomized to 1 of 2 treatment groups: ezetimibe added to ongoing statin treatment (ezetimibe plus simvastatin, atorvastatin or pravastatin at doses of 10/20, 10/10 or 10/20 mg), or doubling the dose of ongoing statin (simvastatin 40 mg, atorvastatin 20 mg, or pravastatin 40 mg). Study drug will be administered once daily in the evening for 8 weeks. Patients ...
This study aims to investigate whether statin therapy can help prevent recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in transplant recipients who had liver transplantation for HCC. Multiple logistic regression analysis will be performed to evaluate the association between statin therapy and the risk of HCC recurrence after LT.
To find out the pharmacokinetic and genetic risk factors involved in muscular side effects (myalgia) associated with statin therapy. To learn better ways of identifying risk factors associated with muscle side effects during statin therapy. To perform laboratory analysis to identify factors predicting future outcomes. The genetic material, in combination with other medical information and blood tests, will be available to researchers studying genetic and other factors that cont...
In patients with primary hypercholesterolemia treated with a statin and with ldl-c above the recommended target goal (esc 2003 recommendations ldl>=1.15 g/l) to compare the efficacy and the safety of ezetrol added to ongoing statin and non drug therapeutic intervention (patient motivation on diet or physical activities or both).
Aim 1: To determine whether therapy with Alirocumab, compared to pre-treatment, will effectively improve carotid atherosclerotic plaque characteristics by reducing Ktrans and LRNC size. To achieve this goal, we will (a) enroll 30 subjects who are intolerant to high intensity statin therapy and only able to tolerate low potency statin or low weekly dose of high potency statin and have LDL-C ≥100 mg/dl; (b) initiate alirocumab at 150mg subcutaneously injection every 2 weeks; (c...
This study aims to evaluate the effect of statin for primary prevention, towards lowering the incidence of recurrent myocardial infarction, cardiogenic shock and mortality in ACS patients.
In the context of australian general practice, to determine the efficacy and safety of ezetimibe 10mg/statin 40mg coadministration in patients with uncontrolled cholesterol receiving statin 40mg or more.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of adding ezetimibe to statin therapy on levels of inflammatory markers and adipokines in patients with atherosclerosis disease and features of the metabolic syndrome,whose LDL-c remains above target (> 2.0 mmol/L) despite statin monotherapy. We hypothesize that the addition of Ezetimibe (10mg per day for 12 weeks) to ongoing statin therapy in patients with atherosclerosis and features of the metabolic syndrome will ...
The clinical efficacy of LDL-lowering therapy have been proven with strong evidences and more emphasized. However, there are also growing concerns that high-intensity statin would be related to increased risk of adverse effects. In addition, there was an inconsistency of efficacy of statin according to ethnic population. Asian population showed more profound LDL reduction not only from high potent statin but from moderate to low potent statin. Conventional strategies for loweri...
Statins are drugs representing the most commonly prescribed medication for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. In a recently published study, discontinuation of statin therapy in patients after acute myocardial infarction was associated with a higher all-cause mortality (hazard ratio 3,45) and a higher cardiac mortality (hazard ratio 4,65). Increasing evidence suggests that statins also have vasoactive properties by up-regulating endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) with...
