ARIES has developed the first large-scale, prospective study solely to the effects of statins in African-American patients, compare the under-represented in clinical trials in general. As African American physician who has treated a large number of African-American patients, the ARIES study the possibility, is the is the efficacy and safety of statins in this high-risk, underserved and underserved populations, said Dr. Keith C. Ferdinand, clinical cardiologist and medical director of Heartbeats Life Center and principal investigator for ARIES.
