“Researchers found that adding lovastatin, a widely used cholesterol-lowering drug, to traditional anti-malarial treatment decreases neuroinflammation and protects against brain damage in mice infected with cerebral malaria.”
There are an abundant number of articles on the beyond cholesterol-lowering effects of statins and this is just another. It begs the question, if the primary effect of statins is anti-inflammatory, then cholesterol-lowering is likely an erroneous target.
“Statins have been shown to be effective in modulating a variety of immune system responses.”
If Lovastatin, or it’s natural alternative, are effective alone without anti-malarial treatment, that’s another disease we can tame.
