Authors: Okopień B, Bułdak Ł, Bołdys A Abstract INTRODUCTION: The need to reduce residual cardiovascular risk led to the development of novel therapeutic strategies to improve patients' outcomes. The residual risk in people with atherogenic dyslipidemia, despite LDL reduction obtained mainly by statins, remains high. Fibrates in those patients lead to significant clinical improvements. Those include reduction in the progression of atherosclerosis, which translates into decrease in cardiovascular events and improvements in microvascular diabetic complications. Furthermore there are other clinical and biochemical...

On average, workers contribute $5,547 of the cost of family coverage. Premiums for singles increased 3 ...

It is evident that diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension disturb the normal endothelial functions in humans and lead to endothelial dysfunction, which may...
