Packard said in presenting the 20-year WOSCOPS (West of Scotland Coronary Prevention Study) follow-up at the American Heart Association scientific sessions.
Undercutting that argument, however, was the WOSCOPS finding that the long-term benefits of 5 years of pravastatin were independent of age at treatment, Dr.

Data source: The study population included a combined sample of nondiabetic participants in five large-scale trials: ASCOT-LLA, JUPITER, WOSCOPS, MEGA, and AFCAPS/TexCAPS.
28) In the WOSCOPS trial, men with hypercholesterolemia (LDL-C [greater than or equal to] 155 mg/dL) and no history of myocardial infarction received pravastatin 40 mg or placebo.

Genetic studies of four randomized controlled clinical trials (CARE, WOSCOPS, PROVE IT, and PROSPER) found that statin treatment significantly reduced CHD events in carriers of the KIF6 variant.
2008) Association of the Trp719Arg polymorphism in kinesin-like protein 6 with myocardial infarction and coronary heart disease in 2 prospective trials: the CARE and WOSCOPS trials.
The first paper demonstrates that a gene variant in the KIF6 gene predicts increased risk for recurrent CHD events (the CARE study) and primary CHD events (the WOSCOPS study)1.
The risk of coronary events associated with the FCAR Asp92Asn polymorphism in both CARE and WOSCOPS was independent of other known risk factors.
Olukotun also played leading roles in the SAVE study involving captopril (Capoten(R)) and the WOSCOPS, LIPID and CARE studies of pravastatin (Pravachol(R)).
