Core Tip The 3-hydroxy-3 methyl CoA (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors, the statins are one of the most frequently prescribed drugs in industrialized countries. Statins are well tolerated cholesterol lowering drugs which significantly help to reduce cardiovascular events. Clinical trials and meta-analyzes thereof now accumulate evidence that development of cancer might be reduced in some tissues. In this review the current status of evidence for an anti-cancer effect of statins will be critically evaluated. In particular, colon and prostate cancer are assessed in greater detail.
