Pharmacogenomic Modulators of Impaired Exercise Adaptation in Statin Users

HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) have beneficial effects (prevent stroke, heart attack) but also some bad ones (block some good effects of exercise). Individuals have genetic variations in proteins that metabolize/transport statins. We hypothesize that these variations modulate the relationship between statin use and lack of benefit from exercise. We will …

Statin and Dual Antiplatelet Therapy to Prevent Early Neurological Deterioration in Branch Atheromatous Disease

Branch atheromatous disease (BAD) has been reported to contribute to small-vessel occlusion and is associated with a higher possibility of early neurological deterioration (END). Because the pathology of BAD is due to atherosclerosis, the investigators postulate that early intensive medical treatment with dual antiplatelet therapy(DAPT) and high-intensity statin may prevent …
