Old Mevacor commercial

Back before we had direct to consumer advertising the drug companies ran ads for doctors, mainly on Lifetime Medical Television. This one for Mevacor (nowadays a $4 generic) was probably from LMT.

In those days, as reflected in the ad, statins were only approved to treat hypercholesterolemia, not ACS or atherosclerosis.

Sadly, this video is now set to private on YouTube. If anybody happens to have a copy of it, please let me know; I'd love to be able to show it to my class.
