Summary CONCLUSIONS:
Aggressive lipid-lowering treatment with ezetimibe had a positive effect on clinical outcomes in the high sitosterol subset of ACS patients with dyslipidaemia, but not in the low sitosterol subset. This effect was independent of LDL-C reduction and suggests that sitosterol measurement on admission in ACS patients might contribute to a "personalised" lipid-lowering approach.
