Research question not specified. Research problem relates to a lack of knowledge pertaining to the relationship between statins and blood thrombogenicity. Quantitative methods, quasi-experimental pre-test, post-test.Two different stain treatment groups, lipid profiles measured via AspirinWorks assay. Logistical regression, analysis of variance. Patients on statins significantly lower cholesterol, LDL. Statins combined with aspirin offer migraine relief, anti-inflammatory, and antithrombotic effects. Scientifically rigorous design controlled for bias. Evidence for selective reporting, not all details of the study presented. Aspirin combined with statins a potentially efficacious therapy.
