ACCORD Lipid Study Brings new Hope to People With Type 2 Diabetes and Atherogenic Dyslipidemia Says International Academic Foundation
Date:3/14/2010

ATLANTA, Georgia, March 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardiovascular risk can be reduced by an additional 31 percent in type 2 diabetes patients with atherogenic dyslipidemia, the common combination of elevated triglycerides (TG, 204 mg/dL or 2.3 mmol/L or higher) and low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C, 34 mg/dL or 0.88 mmol/L or lower). This is achieved by adding fenofibrate to simvastatin. Only 20 of these patients need to be treated for 5 years to prevent one cardiovascular event.

In the Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) Lipid trial, published on-line in the New England Journal of Medicine,(1) the group with atherogenic dyslipidemia had 70 percent more cardiovascular events (cardiovascular death, heart attacks and strokes) than patients without. In fact, the risk associated with atherogenic dyslipidemia was comparable to that in people with previous cardiovascular disease (17.3 percent versus 18.1 percent).
