Pravastatin for Acute Myocardial Infarction With Minimally to Mildly Increased Levels of Serum Cholesterol Study


Brief description of study

The purpose of the Study is to determine whether early treatment with pravastatin can reduce adverse cardiac events in patients with acute myocardial infarction and minimally to mildly elevated serum Low Density Lipoprotein -Cholesterol (LDL-C) levels.

Detailed Study Description

The investigators previously reported the beneficial effect of early use of low-dose pravastatin on major adverse cardiac events in patients with acute myocardial infarction and mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia in the OACIS-LIPID Study. The PRACTIC study is designed as the OACIS-LIPID II trial to determine whether early treatment with pravastatin can reduce adverse cardiac events in patients with acute myocardial infarction and minimally to mildly elevated serum Low Density Lipoprotein -Cholesterol (LDL-C) levels.
