Effect of beta blockers (metoprolol or propranolol) on effect of simvastatin in lowering C-reactive protein in acute myocardial infarction

The American Journal of Cardiology

Feb 7, 2009

Jose C Quinaglia E SilvaBrasilia Heart Study Group

Abstract

Recent data indicated that statin therapy may fail to reduce the incidence of coronary events in patients concomitantly using beta blockers. The aim of the present study was to examine whether the concomitant use of beta blockers would modify the anti-inflammatory action of statins. Cha...read more

Statin Medications & Heart Disease

Statins or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, are used clinically to lower cholesterol levels and have been associated with decreased risk of heart disease. Discover the latest research on Statin Medications & Heart Disease here.

Cardiovascular Diseases: Risk Factors

Cardiovascular disease is a significant health concern. Risk factors include hypertension, obesity, dyslipidemia and smoking. Women who are postmenopausal are at an increased risk of heart disease. Here is the latest research for risk factors of cardiovascular disease.

Anti-inflammatory Treatments

A drug or substance that reduces inflammation (redness, swelling, and pain) in the body. Anti-inflammatory agents block certain substances in the body that cause inflammation and swelling. Discover the latest research on anti-inflammatory treatments here

Ischemia

Ischemia results from lack of blood flow to a particular region or organ and can have serious consequences, including myocardial infarction. Different therapeutic interventions including stents, percutaneous coronary intervention and angioplasty may be used for treatment. Discover the latest research on ischemia here.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
