Statin dosing

Statin dosing can start and is usually sufficient around ED50.

Effective dose 50%, ED50 = the mean population dose necessary to achieve half the maximum (Emax) possible HMG CoA reductase inhibition. ED50 was estimated from published systematic reviews with dose response data of reductions in low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol and thereby hopefully coronary events.
