ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of the Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) Lipid Study, which was presented in the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 59th Annual Scientific Session. It says that the ACCORD Lipid Study does not encourage the use of combined statin and filbrate therapy compared with statin therapy alone to lessen cardiovascular (CV) risk in high-risk type 2 diabetic patients. It also discusses the results of studies related to cardiology including the ACCORD Blood Pressure (BP) Trial, the Navigator Trial, and the Endovascular Valve Edge-to-Edge Repair Study II (EVEREST II). It relates that the oral direct XA inhibitor betrixaban is safe in patients with atrial flutter or nonvavular atrial fibrillation (AF) based on EXPLORE-Xa Trial.
