Decrease in PAI-1 antigen is greater with ACE inhibition

Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) is a known risk factor for cardiovascular (CV) disease and myocardial infarction (MI).

RITA 3: Benefit of early invasive strategy in moderate-risk unstable angina patients

Final results of RITA 3 (Randomized Intervention Trial of unstable Angina) confirm that an interventional strategy results in a statistically significant reduction in the combined outcome of death, nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI), or refractory angina.

MIRACL: Very early statin therapy not guided by cholesterol levels is beneficial in acute coronary syndromes

Final results of the Myocardial Ischemia Reduction with Aggressive Cholesterol Lowering (MIRACL) trial have been published and confirm that treatment with atorvastatin 80 mg/d early during an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) reduces the risk of early recurrent events, primarily recurrent symptomatic ischemia during hospitalization.
