  Purpose

This study is being done to provide valid data on the evolution of a cohort of French participants treated with ezetimibe, alone or in combination with a statin, to be used in simulation models for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Patterns of drug use, evolution of risk factors for CVD, cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and goal attainment in low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels over time will be analyzed.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with cardiovascular (CV) events (myocardial infarction, acute coronary syndrome, unstable angina, ischemic stroke, revascularization procedure, fatal stroke, and sudden death) [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in LDL-C levels [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participants with CV risk factors (including age, gender, lipids, hypertension, diabetes, body mass index, personal/family history of CV events, smoking, alcohol/substance dependence/abuse, comorbidities, education, occupational status) [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Average duration (in days) of treatment with Ezetrol® [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Average duration (in days) of treatment with Inegy® [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Average duration (in days) of treatment with other statins [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participants who discontinued study drug [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participant deaths [ Time Frame: From baseline up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
