An emphasis on more aggressive lipid-lowering, particularly of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, to improve patient outcomes has led to an increased use of combination lipid-lowering drugs. This strategy, while potentially beneficial, has triggered concerns regarding fears of adverse effects, harmful drug interactions, and patient nonadherence.

Baseline characteristics did not differ between mono and triple-therapy groups, except for ethnicity (p = 0.02). SFA wall, lumen, and total vessel volumes increased non-significantly for both groups between baseline and 24-months. Non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was significantly reduced at 12 months with triple-therapy compared with mono-therapy (p = 0.01).

Ezetimibe decreases serum oxidized cholesterol generated by non-enzymatic reactions without impairing bile acid synthesis. Ezetimibe may maintain cholesterol excretion into bile and alleviate the diet-derived oxidative burden.

Statin therapy decreases cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and ezetimibe, a novel cholesterol absorption inhibitor has both lipid-lowering and anti-atherosclerotic effects in animal models. As several adipokines, that is, adiponectin, high molecular weight (HMW) adiponectin, leptin and/or possibly resistin are involved in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance (IR), dyslipidaemia and atherosclerosis, we investigated whether ezetimibe and/or statin treatment may modulate serum concentrations of these four major adipokines.

A lifetime Markov model was developed to estimate the incremental cost per quality adjusted life year (QALY) of treating a hypothetical cohort of 1000 FH patients aged between 20 and 70 years. Baseline coronary heart disease risks reported in the NICE TA 94 on statins, and age-adjusted risk of cardiovascular disease reported in the FH population, were used to populate the model. A meta-analysis estimate of the reduction in cardiovascular events from using high-intensity compared with low-intensity statins was obtained from published trials. Results were interpreted using a cost-effectiveness threshold of pound20 000/QALY.

HIJ-PROPER will determine whether targeting LDL-C of <70mg/dL with pitavastatin plus ezetimibe can improve cardiovascular outcomes in Japanese patients with ACS and dyslipidemia in comparison to targeting LDL-C of 90-100mg/dL with standard pitavastatin monotherapy.

This study is a secondary analysis of the MOZART trial, which included 50 patients with biopsy-proven NASH randomized to ezetimibe 10 mg/day orally or placebo for 24 weeks. The primary aim was to perform a head-to-head comparative analysis of histologic responders [defined as a ⩾2-point reduction in the nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) Activity Score (NAS) without worsening fibrosis] versus nonresponders, and the corresponding quantitative change in liver fat content measured via MRI-PDFF.

Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin/Kexin 9 (PCSK9) plays an important role in the regulation of blood cholesterol levels, and inhibition of PCSK9 with monoclonal antibodies reduces LDL cholesterol by more than 50% over and above what can be achieved with statins or ezetimibe alone. Diet and exercise influence PCSK9 levels; however data on this issue are scarce. Regarding diet, a high oleic canola/docosahexaenoic acid oil blend, marine n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, vegetable n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, a Mediterranean style diet and acute fasting, but not necessarily weight reduction are associated with low PCSK9 concentrations, whereas a high fructose diet is associated with high PCSK9 concentrations. Animal data regarding the effect of diet on PCSK9 must be interpreted with caution, because even between rodent species, significant differences become apparent. Regarding exercise, a decrease in PCSK9 has been reported in one investigation along with an intervention promoting active use of stairs rather than elevators. Reports from sparse animal studies regarding the effect of exercise on PCSK9 have yielded varying results.

Ezetimibe has a lipid lowering-independent vascular protective effect in patients with hypercholesterolemia through decreasing oxidative stress.
