  5. 5. GISSI–HF: Commentary*"Although statin therapy lowers concentrations of LDL cholesterol, is well tolerated,and seems reasonably safe, it does not produce meaningful improvements insurvival in patients with chronic heart failure." - Dr Gregg Fonarow"What this study has done is extend what we knew from CORONA, a study wheremore patients had severe heart failure, to those with less severe heart failure." - Dr Philip Poole-Wilson *All comments from Omega-3 fatty acids, but not statin therapy, cuts mortality and hospitalizations in heart failure (http://www.theheart.org/article/898959.do)
