News release from 30/3/98
Taking "bad" cholesterol even lower.
A new multinational study is being launched to investigate whether lowering LDL-cholesterol to levels below current clinical practice can further reduce the chances of death or heart attack in patients with coronary heart disease.
The five year trial involving 8600 patients in 250 sites is co-sponsored by Parke-Davis and Pfizer. Patients will be treated with Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) tablets. Since the effect of Lipitor on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality is unknown, this is one of the studies under way to determine its effect.

Read the Drug Company letter:THE MISSION
A message from Parke Davis
In the interest of improving the cardiovascular health of New Zealanders
Dear Dr XXXXXXXX,
Coronary Heart Disease affects many of your patient's lives!
New Zealand statistics for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) make shocking reading. CHD kills one out of 4 men, and one out of 8 women.
1.Data from the Framingham Study indicates that from the age of 40, men have a 1 in 2 risk of CHD in their lifetime.
2. Recently, data on survivors of myocardial infarction, discharged from Auckland hospitals, was published in the New Zealand Medical Journal. At a median of 5.5 years follow up, only 32% of patients were receiving lipid lowering therapy! Regardless of whether they were taking cholesterol lowering medication or not, 69% had a total cholesterol greater than 5.2 mmol/L
3 Join the Mission - Cholesterol Must Come Down.
It is estimated that over 100,000 New Zealanders are eligible for statin lipid lowering therapy, yet aren't receiving it.
4. That's an average of 30-40 patients per GP practice. Most of these patients already have CHD, and New Zealand experts recommend their cholesterol should be lowered to 4 -- 4.5 mmol/L.
5 You're in a unique position to make a difference to New Zealand's ranking on the international CHD death scale.
'The Mission' is to get cholesterol levels down in patients with CHD and hypercholesterolaemia. Over the next few months, Parke Davis will provide you with additional tools and resources. Research tells us that the great majority of you believe our efforts are valuable but it can only happen with your help. You may wish to target the most likely patients for cholesterol lowering; people who had their angina diagnosed years ago or who may have experienced a heart attack before you had access to effective cholesterol lowering medicines.You might like to use the enclosed stickers on your patient files to identify priorities for a comprehensive lipid test. We've designed the enclosed desk cholesterol guide to help you talk the issue through with your patients. It quickly and clearly presents the importance of cholesterol lowering for your at risk patients. More resource material is available on request - please use the free, fax back form or talk to your local 'representative.
