Pressbox (Press Release) - Compliance in patients allocated 20 mg simvastatin was similar after 12 months, but had dropped to 69% by 84 months, with OPHN1 an increasing proportion of patients having started a non-study statin. Table 2 shows that the main reason for discontinuation of study treatment in participants allocated 20 mg simvastatin was medical advice, generally because of a perceived need for more intensive cholesterol-lowering therapy. By contrast, slightly more of the patients allocated 80 mg simvastatin were likely to stop because of raised liver or muscle enzyme concentrations or to have reported muscle pain or weakness. Table 3 shows the blood lipid differences achieved between participants allocated 80 mg versus 20 mg simvastatin. At 2 months, LDL cholesterol was reduced by 0��51 (SE 0��06) mmol/L more in those allocated 80 mg simvastatin (as originally anticipated), but that difference had decreased to 0��34 (0��02) mmol/L by 84 months (mainly because of increasing non-compliance with the allocated treatment), yielding a weighted average difference during the study of 0��35 (0��01) mmol/L. In parallel, apolipoprotein B concentrations were significantly reduced by a weighted average of 0��087 (0��004) g/L. No significant differences were observed in HDL cholesterol or apolipoprotein A1, but non-fasting triglycerides were reduced by a weighted average of 0��15 (0��02) mmol/L. The intention-to-treat analyses of the effects of treatment allocation on clinical BVD-523 outcomes should be interpreted in light of the achieved 0��35 mmol/L average difference CCI-779 molecular weight in LDL cholesterol. Major vascular events occurred during the scheduled treatment period in 1477 (24��5%) of the 6031 participants allocated 80 mg simvastatin versus 1553 (25��7%) of the 6033 allocated 20 mg simvastatin (risk ratio [RR] 0��94, 95% CI 0��88�C1��01; p=0��10; figure 2). This non-significant reduction in risk did not increase significantly with duration of treatment (p value for trend=0��7; figure 3). Among participants in the low, middle, and high thirds of baseline LDL cholesterol (figure 4), allocation to 80 mg simvastatin produced further average reductions in LDL cholesterol of 0��30 (SE 0��02), 0��37 (0��02), and 0��36 (0��02) mmol/L, respectively, but no significant difference between the major vascular event reductions. Nor were there any significant differences in the effects of more intensive lowering of LDL cholesterol on major vascular events in any other subcategories examined (figure 4), including in the presence of the allocated vitamins (11% [SE 4��8] reduction) and in their absence (1% [5��2] reduction; heterogeneity p value=0��15). Compared with 20 mg simvastatin, allocation to 80 mg simvastatin was associated with proportional reductions in major coronary events of 4% (SE 4), in any stroke of 9% (8), and in non-coronary revascularisations of 23% (10; figure 2).
