Figure 2: Percentage of patients achieving an LDL-cholesterol of <70 mg/dL on statin therapy alone compared to statin therapy in combination with another lipid-lowering drug. More patients achieved an LDL-cholesterol goal of <70 mg/dL with statin plus niacin ( ) and with statin plus ezetimibe ( ) compared with statin therapy alone. The combination of a statin and fibrate did not improve LDL-cholesterol goal attainment compared to statin therapy alone ( ).
