Among a U.S. population of socioeconomically disadvantaged adults, a polypill-based strategy was associated with greater reductions in systolic BP and LDL compared with the usual care, according to findings published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
According to the study background, while the polypill strategy has been researched in low-income countries, there are few data on its effectiveness in underserved U.S. communities, which tend to have low adherence to guideline-based therapies and high rates of CVD.
