“According to the WOSCOPS trial, in primary prevention, the benefit of a 5-year course of statins can be enjoyed for 20 years. But in secondary prevention, once the disease is developed and the risk of another event is high, the course usually runs life long just as in diabetes,” says Dr. PC Manoria.
