Dyslipidemia is a key modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular (CV) disease. Current lipid-modifying therapies, including statins, ezetimibe, fibrates, omega-3 fatty acid compounds, and the novel proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors, focus on improving lipid levels but ultimately aim to reduce the risk of CV events. Statins still dominate the market owing to their good risk-benefit profile and evidence for reducing CV morbidity and mortality. However, the evidence is not as strong for many of the non-statin therapies. Using a longitudinal claims data analysis we demonstrate how dyslipidemia is being treated in the United States, and provide insights into what is driving current prescribing practices for newly diagnosed and recently treated patients.
