Adhering to drug therapies does improve survival among myocardial infarction survivors, a study has shown.

Research conducted among 31,455 older MI survivors between 1993 and 2003, who were prescribed statins, beta-blockers or calcium channel blockers showed risk of death was greatest among low adherers..

Among a group designated as low adherers, 24% died, compared with 20% of those in an intermediate group.
