BackgroundSingle nucleotide polymorphisms in the SLCO1B1 gene are associated with higher serum simvastatin concentrations and increased risk of simvastatin-induced myopathy (SIM).
MethodsPatients on simvastatin undergoing a procedure at the cardiac catheterisation suite in an acute general hospital were recruited into this cohort study after ethics ..
