Abstract

Statins have been shown to interact with metabolic pathways that potentially affect physiologic functions beyond cholesterol balance. We may broadly categorize non-lipid effects of statins as clinically favorable or clinically detrimental. Whether non-lipid effects of statins are of clinical significance and whether there are differences in non-lipid effects among statins remain points of major current controversy. This review evaluates the available information on potential differences among statins in non-lipid effects.
