Academic OB/GYN Podcast Episode 14 – Cardiovascular Disease Markers in Women

In this episode I interview Dr Paul Ridker from Brigham and Women’s hospital about the JUPITER trial, a randomized trial of statins for prevention of cardiac events in people with elevated C-Reactive Protein who do not have hyperlipedemia.  Dr Ridker is hugely published as was on Time Magazine’s list of 100 Most Influential People.   We discuss not only his work, but academic medicine in general.  It was a great discussion that I hope you enjoy!

    Hi Dr F,
    I’m very late in posting this question but perhaps you’ll still be able to answer. Why did Dr Ridker say something about this being the last trial involving placebo? I’m sorry I don’t have it in quotes…
