This studywas in the headlines today. Merck finally got the results they were looking for. Note that the drug did not lower plaque build-up and that all the subjects tested were eating a low-fat/ low/cholesterol diet. Vytoin (a combination of ezetimibe and a statin) might be an improvement over a statin alone, but it was not tested against a dietary change.
