In a retrospective analysis, 66 patients identified as having received a statin drug within 24 hours of admission for acute myocardial infarction were matched 3:1 with a control group of 198 patients not treated with a statin agent. End points of in-hospital mortality and in-hospital reinfarction were significantly lower in the statin-treated group, pointing to a benefit from very early statin treatment in acute myocardial infarction.
