AIM The effects of statin on small dense low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (sd-LDL-C) and remnant-like particle cholesterol (RLP-C) levels in heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) have not been examined. This study aimed to clarify the effects of statin on sd-LDL-C and RLP-C levels in heterozygous FH. METHODS Seventeen patients with heterozygous FH were randomly assigned to 2 mg/day pitavastatin or 10 mg/day atorvastatin. At baseline and 12 weeks after treatment with statin, we… CONTINUE READING
