Statins are extensively prescribed medicines to reduce cholesterol for cardioprotection, but they also exhibit antimicrobial and pleiotropic effects, which plausibly reduces both skin infection risks and antimicrobial resistance. Adopting a bench-to-bedside framework, the results of laboratory experiments (identifying suitable statins as topical antibiotics and postulating a mechanism of antibacterial action) and clinical evidence (via prescription sequence symmetry analysis and a retrospective case-control study) were reconciled to determine if prior statin use translated into beneficial outcomes.
