Abstract

The commonest cause of mortality worldwide is cardiovascular disease.The contemporary evidence based therapy targets
known risk factors like LDL cholesterol,hypertension and hyperglycemia.Still,the current treatment protocols prevent
only half of the CVD deaths.Scientific research is constantly providing newer options to mitigate unfavourable outcomes
in those with persistent risk.This review discusses the multiple potential targets of therapy and the drugs available to fill
this unmet need.
