Pragmatic evaluation of events and benefits of Lipid-lowering in older adults (PREVENTABLE)

Study Description

The PREVENTABLE trial aims to find out if a drug called atorvastatin (brand name Lipitor) can help older adults 75 years or older live well for longer by preventing dementia, disability, or heart disease. Research participants can be included if they do not have dementia, significant disability that limits their basic everyday activities, or heart disease. Participation in the study may last up to five year. You will be assigned by chance to receive either atorvastatin (study drug) or a matching placebo (a tablet that looks like atorvastatin but does not contain any medicine). At your study visit, the study team will also ask a few questions, draw blood, and perform memory, and physical tests. For most of the study duration, the study team will call you on a yearly basis to see how you are doing.
