Are you statin intolerant?

If you have an intolerance to two or more types of statin (e.g. Atorvastatin, Simvastatin, Rosuvastatin, Pravastatin etc.) then you may be eligible to take part in the “CLEAR Outcomes Study”- For people with, or at risk for cardiovascular disease who are statin intolerant. The study is one of 4 trials assessing the effects of a new drug known as Bempedoic Acid. This works by reducing LDL "Bad" Cholesterol the same way as statins do, but they differ in how they are broken down in the body.

When statins are broken down, the breakdown products leave the liver and can be deposited in muscles, which can cause muscle aches. On the other hand, when Bempedoic Acid breaks down, it's products are removed from the body by the liver without causing those side effects.
