Key Messages

STAREE study main principles

  1. STAREE is a community based, public health trial that is funded by government and non-profit health organisations. STAREE is not sponsored by pharmaceutical industries.
  2. STAREE is the only statin-placebo control, double-blind, randomised trial exclusively enrolling older adults.
  3. STAREE will determine if the benefits of statin therapy outweigh the risks of adverse effects for initially healthy older adults.
  4. STAREE will determine whether statins can extend healthy life expectancy and independent living and improve quality of life in the older population.
  5. STAREE will provide clinicians and older adults with evidence-based data which will guide decisions about whether they should prescribe or take a statin.
