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

Condition or disease
Hyperlipidemia Hypercholesterolemia Dyslipidemia

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 0 participants
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
Study Start Date : March 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2022

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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.
