1. Short-term and long-term effects of a loading dose of atorvastatin before percutaneous coronary intervention on major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with acute coronary syndrome: a meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials

Short-term and long-term effects of a loading dose of atorvastatin before percutaneous coronary intervention on major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with acute coronary syndrome: a meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials Whether a loading dose of atorvastatin (80 mg) can reduce major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) remains controversial. Therefore, we performed this meta-analysis.Randomized controlled trials (RCT) comparing (...) a loading dose of atorvastatin to a control in patients with ACS who underwent PCI were identified through searches of medical literature databases. Risk ratios (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated to compare the primary endpoint. Finally, 13 trials enrolling 22 095 patients were included; of the 22 095 patients, 11 214 (50.7%) received loading doses of 80 mg of atorvastatin. Compared with the control, atorvastatin significantly reduced MACE (RR: 0.66, 95% CI 0.54-0.80), myocardial

7. Antagonistic Effect of Atorvastatin on High Fat Diet Induced Survival during Acute Chagas Disease (PubMed)

Antagonistic Effect of Atorvastatin on High Fat Diet Induced Survival during Acute Chagas Disease Chagasic cardiomyopathy, which is seen in Chagas disease, is the most severe and life-threatening manifestation of infection by the kinetoplastid Trypanosoma cruzi. Adipose tissue and diet play a major role in maintaining lipid homeostasis and regulating cardiac pathogenesis during the development of Chagas cardiomyopathy. We have previously reported that T. cruzi has a high affinity (...) for lipoproteins and that the invasion rate of this parasite increases in the presence of cholesterol, suggesting that drugs that inhibit cholesterol synthesis, such as statins, could affect infection and the development of Chagasic cardiomyopathy. The dual epidemic of diabetes and obesity in Latin America, the endemic regions for Chagas disease, has led to many patients in the endemic region of infection having hyperlipidemia that is being treated with statins such as atorvastatin.
