Despite the significant advances in the medical research and treatment methods, the rate of mortality associated
with cardiovascular disease (CVD) is continuously rising and it remains the leading cause of death worldwide.
There are several treatment methods for CVD and associated complications that have been considered till now. The current treatment
methods cannot produce rapid cure, but could prevent or reduce the progression of this devastating disease. In the current article, we
have summarized the use of various pharmacological agents viz. HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins), antihypertensive, thrombolytic
and anticoagulation agents that are currently being used for the management of CVD which targets different biochemical or molecular
events. Based on our article, more research in this field is advocated which will provide the rapid and effective treatment methods in order
to avoid fatal complications associated with CVD.
