This pre-print manuscript (in press, Atherosclerosis) doesn't seem to have been mentioned on a single blog - so I thought I would stick it up here. Could it explain all sorts of anti-pleotropic effects, and possible paradoxical worsening of atherosclerosis (or lack of effect) of Vytorin in the ENHANCE study?
Any lipidologists out there please interpret.
