    Abstract

    There is an urgent need for clinical trials to examine both the lipid-lowering and inflammatory hypotheses of atherosclerosis in rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Novel targeted therapies in development may also have a major impact on future coronary heart disease risk in these conditions. © 2008 Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
