Lipid-Control Allies

New artery-cleaning agents might provide statin backup

Shawne Neeper

Abstract: The number of tools to fight heart disease could be mushrooming. Two fungal compounds slow down artery-clogging lipid buildup in mice, a new study finds, and they work through a different pathway than current treatments do. The drugs could reinforce existing therapy or take over when other medicines fail.
