Statin Reduces Heart Attack, Stroke Rates in Patients With Normal Cholesterol but Elevated C-Reactive Protein
Date:11/11/2008

h the earlier Heart Protection Study, a largely secondary prevention study where the benefit of a statin was similar at high and low levels of LDL cholesterol.

Diet, exercise and smoking cessation are all known to lower hsCRP levels and are first-line interventions recommended for the general population to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. However, until now, no large, prospective data study has shown that any pharmacologic therapy given to those without elevated cholesterol levels but with elevated hsCRP could prevent cardiovascular events.

Since statins lower both LDL cholesterol and hsCRP (used as a marker of inflammation), the findings presented at the meeting cannot determine whether cholesterol lowering, a reduction in inflammation, or a combination of both are responsible for the reductions seen.
