ABSTRACT
The article comments on a research study focusing on the efficacy of intensive atorvastatin therapy in patients with stable coronary heart disease (CHD). According to the author, although it is well recognized that lipid lowering with statins reduces the risk for stroke, it is not known what degree of lipid lowering is necessary for optimum risk reduction. He also mentions that this trial did not truly test the low density lipoproteins-threshold hypothesis.
