Abstract

Background: It is unclear whether early initiation of low-dose pravastatin therapy can reduce the occurrence of major adverse cardiac events after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Methods and Results: The study group comprised 353 patients with AMI who had plasma total cholesterol levels of 200-250mg/dl and triglyceride levels
