    An Introduction to Atherosclerosis

    Atherosclerosis is defined as the build-up of plaque in the arteries, causing the narrowing of arteries and leading to the majority of heart attacks and strokes. Statin monotherapy has long been established as the gold-standard treatment, however the treatment landscape has grown over recent years with the introduction of new lipid-lowering therapies including fibrates, ezetimibe and PCSK-9 inhibitors. Further research and large-scale clinical trials are required to better compare their efficacy and safety with standard statin therapy.
