About the LIPID trial

The LIPID trial was a randomized controlled trial to determine the effects of cholesterol lowering on death from coronary heart disease among patients with coronary disease and average lipid levels. The trial was designed and initiated by Australian and New Zealand researchers including members of the Clinical Trials Research Unit of Auckland City Hospital, New Zealand. The trial involved 9014 patients, 3,056 of whom were recruited from New Zealand, and all of whom had a prior history of myocardial infarction or hospitalization for unstable angina. The study began in 1990 and was terminated at the end of 1997 (on the advice of the Data Monitoring Committee) as a result of evidence of a clear beneficial effect of pravastatin.

About the JUPITER trial

The JUPITER trial was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that investigated whether rosuvastatin 20 mg compared to placebo would decrease the rate of first major cardiovascular events. The trial enrolled 17,802 apparently healthy men and women with elevated levels of C-reactive protein. The trial was conducted by investigators in 26 countries and overseen by an academic statistician (Robert Glynn, PhD, Harvard University, USA) and an independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board (chaired by Professor Rory Collins, Oxford University, UK). The study was funded by AstraZeneca, US who had no access to unblinded trial data and played no role in analysis or interpretation of the study data or in manuscript preparation. Dr. Ridker, the JUPITER principal investigator, is listed as a co-inventor on patents held by Brigham and Women's Hospital  that relate to the use of inflammatory biomarkers in cardiovascular disease that have been licensed to AstraZeneca.
