NHS to pioneer cholesterol-busting jab.

A twice-a-year injection that reduces bad cholesterol to protect the heart is to be pioneered by the NHS in England.

Already, millions of people take daily statin pills to cut their cholesterol.

But later this year, a "ground-breaking" large-scale clinical trial will offer NHS patients a new form of medicine, gene silencing, in an injection called inclisiran.

Wow this is such good news my partner had a heart attack when he was 39 because he didn't know he was born with bad cholesterol and my daughter also has it so she's on statins . Very exciting
