Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Although reductions in cardiovascular risk can be achieved by lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, treated patients remain at substantial risk. Epidemiological studies have established that higher levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) are strongly associated with reduced cardiovascular risk, and therefore raising levels of HDL-C may be beneficial. The activity of cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) appears to be inversely correlated with HDL-C leve...
