Abstract Although age-adjusted mortality rates from coronary heart disease (CHD) have decreased by nearly 70% during the past half-century, cardiovascular disease still remains the number one killer in the U.S. (1). During this time period, numerous public health efforts, pharmacologic advances, and interventional strategies have contributed to the dramatic decline in CHD. In the past 20 years, substantial lipid intervention directed at lowering levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) with a statin medication has contributed to the decline in CHD events (2). Continued advancements against CHD, however, will likely require therapeutic targets beyond LDL-C (3).
