Can ezetimibe neutralize the glycemic dysregulation of high dose statins?
One of the well-recognized statin side effects is disruption of the glucose homeostasis. Although more pronounced in diabetics as well as patients with metabolic syndrome (MS) characteristics and despite the reduction of CVD events in these type of patients, it remains an unwanted metabolic effect of these lifesaving drugs. Studies with ezetimibe have shown some contradictory results, increasing insulin resistance as well as reducing insulin resistance and improving glucose metabolism. Remarkable effects of reducing hepatic lipid accumulation and other NAFLD markers have been observed as well. suggested mechanisms implicated in glycemic improvements were a diminished release of free fatty acid in the plasma, a reduction of chylomicron synthesis in the small intestine and even Bèta-cell protective effects in the pancreas. In this meta-analysis statins, high and low dose were compared to statin + ezetimibe combination therapy. Of the 2 440 screened articles, 16 RCT’s were included. Parameters used to study the effects were fasting blood glucose (FBG) and HbA1c. Ezetimibe use did not result in unfavorable changes of these parameters. This was similar in the combination of ezetimibe with low dose statin, compared to high dose statin. In the latter comparison combination therapy showed improved FBG: weighted mean difference (WMD) -1,78% (-3,13 - +1,90%); HbA1c WMD: -0.05% (-0.14 - +0.05%). Longer treatment (> 3months) seemed improve glycemic parameters even more, but because of the limited number of studies the data was inconclusive. Based on this limited meta-analysis the author postulated that combining ezetimibe with low dose statins is an alternative to high dose statins in patients were glycemic control is diminished or were patient run a high risk of developing diabetes. The effects of ezetimibe on glucose metabolism are still poorly understood and further studies are needed to confirm the protective effects of this cholesterol absorption inhibitor.

Statins to prevent VTE what is the evidence?
The authors reviewing the published trials that evaluated the protective effects of statins on VTE and PE come to the sobering conclusion that more questions than answers emerged from the collected data. Although earlier studies, starting with the 2009 Jupiter trial, seemed promising, recent data from RCT’s failed to confirm these findings. There seems to be a potential for statins in targeted therapy of patients with recurrent VTE and post thrombotic complication, especially as an add on treatment to standard anticoagulants. The safety of statins as well the lack of interaction with commonly used anti-coagulant therapies, are attractive properties, particularly in patients with high bleeding risk. Differences between statins as well as targeting specific statin types in specific patients, surfaced in the studies and presented in this review. What remains to be properly elucidated are the mechanisms of action by which statins influence and possibly improve VTE risk. The reduction of vascular inflammation might be one of the most prominent factors that statins can improve and explained the observed benefits in a number of studies. But the ultimate proof can only be provided if well designed additional prospective randomized trials are conducted. Differences and shared effects of the currently available types of statins as well as dosing, treatment duration and even specific clinical indications have to be determined before the we can confidently prescribe this class of drugs for VTE prevention.

Young DM patients headed for premature macro- and micro-vascular complications!
With an increasing number of individuals being overweight or obese in our global adult population, it was to be expected that young adults and even adolescents would follow suit. The rapid rise in the incidence of DM2 in this younger generations is of serious concern. The associated development of atherothrombotic macro-vascular complications as well as the debilitating micro vascular complications needs to be addressed by a targeted interventions. In this analysis the authors aimed to analyze changes in lipids and inflammatory markers in young type 2 diabetics that started with insulin, compared to those that continued with oral medication only. The Treatment Options for type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents and Youth (TODAY) study was designed to compare the effect of 3 treatment regimens to maintain glycemic control in youth with recent-onset type 2 diabetes. Between July 2004 and February 2009; 699 young adolescents (10-17 years) with DM2, diagnosed <2years, were included. In this sub-analysis the impact of insulin on lipids and inflammatory markers in participants with poorly controlled DM2 was evaluated. An HbA1c cut-off level of 8.0% at 6 months was used for initiating insulin therapy. HbA1c levels improved marginally. Dyslipidemia improved in parallel with glycemic control and adding insulin had a modest effect on total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and total Apo B plasma concentrations. Statin use increased from 8.6% to 22% (per protocol statins were started if LDL-C reached ≥130 mg/dl). Triglycerides and non-esterified fatty acids stabilized after insulin therapy, this was not influenced by HbA1. Hs CRP continued to increase after insulin, and this was in parallel with HbA1c and percent overweight. The authors concluded that young   adolescents with type 2 diabetics show a rapid progression of biomarkers related to inflammation as well as a deteriorating lipid profile. If insulin fails to improve hyperglycemia none or only a modest effect on these important CVD risk factors can be expected. Based on these observations, adolescents are prone to experience accelerated atherosclerosis and subsequent macro and micro vascular complications much earlier in life. Based on these findings the urgency to come up with better management strategies, including lifestyle improvements are urgently needed.

Are CAD intervention trials adhering to guideline dictated medical management?
Comparing trials that evaluated outcomes after PCI or CABG were the focus of this analysis. The authors aimed to evaluate how well patients were managed medically in these intervention trials and formulated two guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) benchmarks; GDMT1: any antiplatelet agent plus beta-blocker plus statin and GMDT2: any antiplatelet agent plus beta-blocker plus statin plus angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor/angiotensin receptor blocker. They examined publications and reports in MEDLINE plus The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. Out of a total of 439 references, 5 trials were selected for evaluation using the methodological recommendations of The Cochrane Collaboration. The overall compliance to GDMT1 was surprisingly low, from 67% at the first year to 53% at year 5. The results for GDMT2 were even worse with a first-year percentage of 40% and a 5-year result of 38%. Intriguingly patients in the PCI studies had higher GDMT1 and GDMT2 scores at all time points, compared to post CABG patients. A meta regression analysis supported that adverse clinical outcomes were more frequently observed in patients with lower GDMT scores. The authors concluded that proper guideline dictated medical management in post procedural CAD patients was poor and that comparing outcomes in trials where patients were not treated in a similar fashion would make comparisons of clinical outcomes at 5 years quite challenging.

Modifiable risk factors in FH patients and CVD events
In the Netherlands the successful national Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) screening program has increased awareness of this disease among health care professionals significantly of the increased LDL-c levels improved as well. Diagnosed patients are now treated with high intensity- high dose statins not seldom combined with ezetimibe and if needed with PCSK9ab. One important question, addressed in this analysis is how to recognize good responder’s vs patients that continue to develop CV complications despite adequate management. In total 821 FH patients (53% women, median age 47.4 years), managed at a single specialized outpatient clinic at the Erasmus medical center in Rotterdam, were selected for this time -dependent analysis. Median duration of statin use was 9.5 (5.1-14.2) years and 64% used maximum lipid lowering treatment. Over the course of treatment 102/821 patients (12%) developed ASCVD complications (8 538-person years statin exposure time). Patients with ASCVD events had a median age of 53 year; more often experienced CVD events in the past  (32% vs 9%; p<0.001); had a positive family history of premature atherosclerosis 58% vs 40%; P<0.001), were hypertensive (70% vs 22%; P<0.001), had a higher on treatment LDL-c (162 ± 54 vs 135 ± 58 mg/dl; P<0.001); had a lower on treatment HDL-c (50 ± 15 vs 54 ± 15 mg/dl P<0.001) and were smokers (32% vs 14%; P<0.001). Additional CVD recurrences were observed in 31 patients (30%). The median time interval between the first and subsequent event was 5.7 years. Smoking was the factor that distinguished these patients form the patients that did not develop additional CVD complications (32% vs 10%; P< 0.01). The authors concluded that FH patients despite being treated with LDL-c lowering drugs are at risk for developing ASCVD complications. In this registry the driving force of developing CVD events were avoidable or treatable classic cardiovascular risk factors such as smoking and hypertension. These findings underline the importance of addressing all risk factors, including behavioral in addition to maximum lipid lowering therapy.
