Abstract:Some of the new lipid-lowering drugs have a very promising profile. However, eventually phase 3 and outcome trials will be required to prove the usefulness of these compounds in clinical practice. Furthermore, it is unlikely that they will change the primary lipidological approach (statin and ezetimibe) even if they prove successful.
