OBJECTIVES In this B-mode ultrasound study we assessed pravastatin treatment effects on carotid and femoral artery walls and investigated the correlations between the state and evolution of peripheral and coronary atherosclerosis. BACKGROUND The Regression Growth Evaluation Statin Study (REGRESS) was an 11-center, 2-year, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective study of 885 men with coronary artery disease (CAD) (total cholesterol 4 to 8 mmol/liter). The study primarily investigated… Expand
