According to HealthDay (6/15, Norton), in a study involving “300 older adults with mildly impaired thinking and memory,” researchers found that “those using ‘lipophilic’ statins were more likely to develop dementia over the next eight years.” Among some “lipophilic statins” are “such widely used medications as simvastatin (Zocor), atorvastatin (Lipitor) and lovastatin (Altoprev).” The findings were scheduled for presentation at the virtual annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.
