(3) Atorvastatin vs Simvastatin on Atherosclerosis Progression A trial that asked whether high-dose atorvastatin slows the progression of atherosclerosis in patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia more than conventional dose simvastatin.
Conclusion The reduction in intima-media thickness, and LDL-cholesterol was greater with atorvastatin (i.e., high-dose atorvastatin was better).
(4) Azimilide Supraventricular Arrhythmia Program A combined analysis of 3 clinical trials studying the effects of azimilide/Stedicor® for managing patients with atrial fibrillation or flutter, who were in sinus rhythm at randomisation.
Conclusion Patients displayed a stunning example of a dose-response curve.  The 125 mg dose of azimilide increased the time to arrhythmia recurrence by >7-fold from 17 days (placebo) to 130 days (azilimide, p=0.002).

Patient discussion about ASAP

Q. can pregnant women fly in airplanes? Please reply me asap. Thank You. My wife is having the symptoms of pregnancy. We have planned to go on a tour to London. I have a doubt; can pregnant women fly in airplanes? Please reply me asap. Thank You.

A. If you have a normal, healthy pregnancy, it can be perfectly safe to fly during most of it. Discuss your trip plans with your doctor or midwife, however, before booking your flight. In certain high-risk cases, your healthcare provider may advise you to stay close to home throughout your pregnancy.

You may find that your second trimester — weeks 14 to 27 — is a perfect time to fly. Once you're past the first trimester, in all likelihood your morning sickness will be behind you, your energy levels will be higher, and your chances of miscarriage will be low. However, you shouldn't travel after 36 weeks.

in early pregnancy, you'd better consult with your ob-gyn doctor first.
