Statins in combination with antibody greatly reduce cholesterol
Statins in combination with antibody greatly reduce cholesterol (May 14, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Iowa - Statins combined with an antibody can greatly reduce cholesterol levels, according to a report published in JAMA. Researchers randomized patients to either moderate daily statin or high intensity statin. After 4 weeks, participants continued statin therapy in conjunction with the antibody evolocumab, placebo or ezetimibe. Results showed that evolocumab reduced LDL cholesterol by 66-75% when combined with moderate or high intensity statin therapy, significantly more than placebo or ezetimibe.
