STAtins in Reducing Events in the Elderly

We at STAREE wanted to remind our participants to kindly let us know if you commence any new prescription medications including any short-term antibiotics or antivirals. Unfortunately some medications are not safe to take along side the STAREE medication, so it’s always best to give us a call and keep us updated so we can ensure your safety during your participation in the study. Please contact STAREE on 1800 770 664.

STAREE is a world first randomised controlled trial, conducted by Universities across Australia, studying the effects of statins on healthy ageing.

The STAREE study is proudly funded by public health research grants. To reduce influence and bias, we do not accept funding from pharmaceutical companies. STAREE findings may directly benefit current and future generations of Australians.
