Abstract

In Greek mythology Panacea was the goddess of universal remedy or health. In literary terms a panacea represents a solution to solve all ills and there are few drugs that can claim such an accolade. One drug class that has claimed to be a panacea in adults at increased risk of cardiovascular disease are statins. Since their FDA approval in the late 1980s, statins have revolutionised the management of hypercholesterolemia.
