In a second study, which was a post hoc analysis of the Primary Prevention of Acute Coronary Events with Lovastatin in Men and Women with Average Cholesterol Levels: Results of the Air Force/Texas Coronary Atherosclerosis Prevention Study (AFCAPS / TexCAPS), lovastatin was found to be effective for the primary prevention of acute cardiovascular events in patients with chronic kidney disease, but not for reducing loss of kidney function.
Nearly all of the clinical benefit in terms of reduced event rates in AFCAPS / TexCAPS occurred in patients in the lowest third of HDL distribution at baseline, those with an HDL below 34 mg/dL.
