  • Overview

    According to the results of a recent study, the use of statins for primary prevention in women is not supported by clinical-trial data. Theodore Eisenberg, a law professor at Cornell University, discusses the scope of the meta-analyses of the primary prevention clinical statin trial, and the conclusion, which found no statistically significant evidence of cardioprotective effect for women. Mr. Eisenberg explores with host Dr. Larry Kaskel the important questions raised by these findings, including whether the drugs should be used in the primary prevention in women and how the unqualified marketing and advertising claims of protection are misleading to physicians and consumers.
