PETALING JAYA: A clinical trial using a cholesterol-lowering medication has proven to help prevent heart attacks and strokes in patients suffering from high blood pressure and normal or mildly elevated cholesterol levels. 

The five-year test in an Anglo-Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial showed a reduction of 36% in fatal coronary events and non-fatal heart attacks among patients in this category, said Institut Jantung Negara Cardiology Department head Datuk Seri Dr Robaayah Zambahari.
