Atherosclerosis is the abnormal accumulation of lipids and products resulting from an inflammatory response in the walls of arteries, and is the leading cause of death in the Western world. Heart attacks, angina pectoris, peripheral arterial disease, and strokes are common sequelae of atherosclerosis. In some cases, lowering serum lipid concentrations has been shown to prevent the sequelae of atherosclerosis and decrease mortality in patients with a history of cardiovascular disease and hyperlipidemia. The five drug classes discussed in this chapter Figure 26—1 are used to decrease serum concentrations of lipids in the blood hyperlipidemia and to prevent or reverse associated atherosclerosis, or, in the case of hypertriglyceridemia, prevent pancreatitis. Although the drugs are generally safe and effective, adverse effects include drug—drug interactions and rare toxic reactions in skeletal muscle and the liver.

Antihyperlipidemic agents promote reduction of lipid levels in the blood. Some antihyperlipidemic agents aim to lower the levels of low-density lipoprotein LDL cholesterol, some reduce triglyceride levels, and some help raise the high-density lipoprotein HDL cholesterol. By reducing the LDL cholesterol, they can prevent both the primary and secondary symptoms of coronary heart disease.
