REVEAL Study Results Reaffirms Importance of Cholesterol and Heart Disease

The National Lipid Association (NLA) welcomes the results of the REVEAL trial which demonstrated that reductions in cholesterol levels with anacetrapib were associated with a reduction in cardiovascular events.  Specifically, cholesterol drug anacetrapib produced reductions in low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, non-high density lipoprotein (non-HDL) cholesterol levels, lipoprotein(a) levels and a profound increase in high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels.  These favorable lipid changes were associated with a significant reduction in cardiovascular events
