What are the long-term effects of statin therapy on sub-clinical atherosclerosis in children with FH who are treated with statin therapy?
- Any explanatory notes
Although statins are increasing in use, there is still a lack of data on the long-term effects of statins in children. It is particularly important to determine any long-term adverse effects of statin treatment in a population with FH, as people generally take statins for the rest of their lives once treatment starts.
