Randomized studies with statins (alone or in combination with other lipid-lowering drugs) have demonstrated their clinical efficacy in lowering LDL-C. Several classes of new, non-statin agents have been successfully studied and used (e.g., ezetimibe and inhibitors of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 [i-PSCK9]).
