The study intends to investigate whether genetics influence how individuals respond to statins (clinical outcomes and changes in carotid intimal media thickness)

Hyperlipidemia Hypercholesterolemia Dyslipidemia

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: An Observational Study Investigating Genetic Influences on Clinical Outcomes and Change in Carotid Intimal Thickness in Adults Taking Atorvastatin, Simvastatin, or Lovastatin

Further study details as provided by Joseph Kitzmiller, Ohio State University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • carotid intimal media thickness (CIMT) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    CIMT measurements will be performed at baseline (within 3 months of starting statin) and at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. Change in CIMT is considered a surogate measure of atherosclerotic progression.
