OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of beta-blockers with different pharmacological profiles on glycemic and metabolic control in(More)
IMPORTANCE Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) has been hypothesized to be involved in atherogenesis through pathways related to inflammation. Darapladib is an oral, selective inhibitor of the Lp-PLA2 enzyme. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of darapladib in patients after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) event. DESIGN,(More)
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide.
