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 PCSK9 inhibitors, focus on improving lipid levels with an end goal to achieve CV risk reduction. Statins dominate the market owing to their good risk-benefit profile and evidence for reducing CV morbidity and mortality. With the positive outcomes data for certain nonstatin therapies such as PCSK9 inhibitors and Vascepa, treatment dynamics are evolving. Using a longitudinal claims data analysis, we demonstrate how dyslipidemia is treated in the United States in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients.
