CRP Reduction, LDL Reduction, and Cardiovascular Event Rates After Initiation of Rosuvastatin: The JUPITER Trial
Dr. Paul M. Ridker

Dr Ridker discusses new findings from the JUPITER trial which were initially released at the American College of Cardiology meeting in March 09. As was previously reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, treatment with rosuvastatin significantly reduced vascular event rates in individuals with normal levels of LDL cholesterol...

Clinical Application of C-Reactive Protein Across the Spectrum of Acute Coronary Syndromes
Dr. Benjamin Scirica

High hsCRP levels have been found to be associated with poor cardiovascular outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). There are however few data and some conflicting data with regards to ST elevation MI, the full spectrum of ACS, specific subgroups of patients with ACS, and the timing of measurement of CRP. The purpose of the...

Favorable effect of statins on local inflammatory activation in non-culprit lesions of patients with multivessel coronary artery disease
Dr. Konstantinos Toutouzas

Recently, new insights have become available into how anti-inflammatory effects of statin treatment impact on what happens within the coronary arteries. As seen in the REVERSAL trial, for example, a reduction in systemic inflammation, as indicated by the level of C-reactive protein, was important in addition to cholesterol-lowering, for the...
