    "3-Hydroxy-3-methylgutaryl CoA reductase inhibitors,
    commonly referred to as the statins, have proven therapeutic
    and preventative effects in cardiovascular diseases.
    Recently, there are emerging interests in their use as
    anticancer agents based on preclinical evidence of their
    antiproliferative, proapoptotic, anti-invasive, and
    radiosensitizing properties."
