Effect of very high-intensity statin therapy on regression of coronary atherosclerosis: the ASTEROID trial.

JAMA 2006 Apr 5;295(13):1556-65.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

... CONCLUSIONS: Very high-intensity statin therapy using rosuvastatin 40 mg/d achieved an average LDL-C of 60.8 mg/dL and increased HDL-C by 14.7%, resulting in significant regression of atherosclerosis for all 3 prespecified IVUS measures of disease burden. Treatment to LDL-C levels below currently accepted guidelines, when accompanied by significant HDL-C increases, can regress atherosclerosis in coronary disease patients. Further studies are needed to determine the effect of the observed changes on clinical outcome. TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00240318.
