Statins Taken For Reducing Cholesterol Found To Reduce Death Rate Associated With Heart Attack As Well

ficant finding with this regard has been the introduction of Statin drugs, which reduces the inflammation and widens the blood vessels of the heart by increasing the levels of nitric oxide. Recent research points out that patients who get a statin drug in the critical first hours after a heart attack are much more likely to leave the hospital alive than those who don't get the cholesterol-lowering medication. Though statin therapy was shown to have prognostic value, considerable debate remained regarding the timing of the medication.

It has been found that the people who had been taking statins before going to the hospital and were given the drugs within 24 hours after admission had a 54 percent lower risk of dying in the hospital. Patients who had not been taking a statin but were started on the therapy within 24 hours of hospital admission were 58 percent less likely to die in the hospital than those not taking the drugs.

Evidence regarding the efficacy of the drug is yet to be documented. Considering the fact that the aim of any treatment is enhanced long-term survival if not cure, it would be wise enough to carry out further research in the same direction to have substantial and authoritative evidence. After all, who knows what the future may hold?
