Our findings have implications for the advancement of novel antiatherosclerotic therapies. The LDL cholesterol levels observed in this scholarly research are less than those endorsed by current recommendations, providing a biologic basis for upcoming trials that target very low LDL cholesterol amounts. Furthermore, about one third of patients in our study had disease progression despite maximally intensive statin therapy. This acquiring suggests a possibly important role for novel agents made to decrease LDL cholesterol amounts, increase HDL cholesterol levels, or change disease activity by means of other pathways. Certainly, a substantial residual risk of clinical events remains generally in most secondary-prevention populations despite the use of the most effective current medical therapies, affirming the necessity for new antiatherosclerotic agents.
