Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the clinical effectiveness and safety of statins, ezetimibe, fibrates, or fish oil for treating dyslipidaemia in HIV-infected patients receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy. Clinical effectiveness will be measured in terms of prevention (primary and secondary) of cardiovascular events (Fatal or non-fatal myocardial infarction, stroke and angina).
