OBJECTIVES Previous research suggests that LDL particle number (LDL-P) may be a better tool than LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) to guide LDL-lowering therapy. Using real-world data, this study has two objectives: [1] to determine the incidence of CHD across LDL-P thresholds; and [2] to compare CHD/stroke events among patients achieving comparably low LDL-P or LDL-C levels. METHODS A claims analysis was conducted among high-risk patients identified from the HealthCore Integrated Research Database(SM… CONTINUE READING
