ASPEN

Atorvastatin/Lipitor™ Study for the Prevention of coronary heart disease Endpoints in Non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. A trial comparing atorvastatin to placebo in reducing morbidity and mortality in type 2 diabetics ± previous myocardial infarction (MI).
Primary endpoints Cardiovascular disease-related death, nonfatal MI, nonfatal stroke, recanalization, CABG surgery, resuscitated cardiac arrest, and worsening or unstable angina.
Conclusion Despite a mean 29% reduction in the levels of LDL cholesterol in the atorvastatin group, no significant reduction in the rate of the primary end point; these results are discordant with the findings of other studies assessing statins in diabetics, which may have been related to changes in treatment guidelines during the study.

i] and mean RHI with total basal area and relative basal area of bigtooth aspen (as a percentage of the total), percentage of white pine advance regeneration and the mean age and age range of advance regeneration for all species on each plot.
Relative basal area of bigtooth aspen ranged from 62 to 89% (Table 1).
Thus, our initial hypothesis of minimal height growth of advance regeneration under an even-aged bigtooth aspen overstory is not supported by our data.
