Patients Recovery Time could be reduced by Statins

Recovery time may be reduced for patients who take the cholesterol-lowering medications popularly known as statins after surgery, according to a new study from researchers at Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Dublin, Ireland.

Statins are commonly used medicines to control high cholesterol levels and researchers are examining the other benefits of statins in different conditions like in organ transplantation and severe infections. It has also become one of the most prescribed medication in the world, with high number of users in Europe and Asia, added the study team.
