Brief description of study

Do you have heart disease or diabetes? Lowering cholesterol lowers risk of heart attack or stroke.

Detailed Study Description

If you have diabetes or heart disease, reducing health risk factors can improve your quality of life. Lowering blood cholesterol levels that are too high reduces the risk for developing heart disease and lessens the chance of heart attack, stroke or dying of coronary heart disease (CHD).

A clinical research study is being conducted to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of an investigational drug that may help to lower cholesterol levels compared with two drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of high cholesterol. You may qualify to participate if you are 18 or older and have CHD, diabetes or are at high risk for CHD. Qualified participants receive study-related doctor’s care, study medication, study-related lab work, & dietary counseling at no cost, along with up to $250 in compensation.
