HIV-infected patients on antiretroviral therapy frequently develop dyslipidemias and, despite therapy with potent lipid-lowering agents, a high percentage does not achieve guideline recommended lipid targets. In this study, we examined the efficacy of combination treatment with a statin and the cholesterol transport blocker, ezetimibe, vs. monotherapy with a statin in HIV-infected patients not achieving lipid goals.

The results of this data analysis suggest that increasing the use of rosuvastatin can result in cardiovascular event reduction and cost savings. Because the impact of lipid-modifying therapy on cardiovascular risk has not been thoroughly documented in controlled clinical studies, our model assumed that incremental lipid changes had effects in proportion to the magnitude of change.

Our results show a direct inhibitory effect of rosuvastatin on IL-6-induced expression of CRP in liver cells. Statins may lower CRP by inhibiting its production in the liver rather than by exerting systemic anti-inflammatory effects. The effects of rosuvastatin in reducing the levels of CRP in plasma may have clinical utility in addition to its effects on atherogenic lipoproteins.

We designed a pharmacokinetic study and tested ex vivo platelet function on 21 healthy volunteers who received clopidogrel and all currently commercially available statins: rosuvastatin [10 mg o.d.], simvastatin [20 mg o.d.], fluvastatin [80 mg o.d.], pravastatin [40 mg o.d.], and atorvastatin [20 mg o.d.]. Each statin was administered for 7 days followed by 1 week of wash-out period with clopidogrel treatment alone. Detection of the statins in the plasma was performed on all blood samples, using HPLC analytical method.

A total of 123 participants were enrolled in this study; these included acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients (n=53), unstable angina patients (UA, n=40), and normal controls (n=30). AMI and UA patients were divided into high-dose rosuvastatin (20 mg) and low-dose rosuvastatin (5 mg) groups. NLRP3, cathepsin-B, and downstream cytokine expressions were appropriately evaluated using real-time PCR, flow cytometry, western blotting and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The concentrations of serum inflammatory markers were also evaluated for correlation with NLRP3 levels.

The effects of age and gender on the pharmacokinetics of rosuvastatin (Crestor) were assessed in healthy young (18-35 years) and elderly (> 65 years) males and females in this open, nonrandomized, noncontrolled, parallel-group trial. Sixteen males and 16 females (8 young and elderly volunteers per gender group) were enrolled. Mean (range) ages were 24 (18-33) and 68 (65-73) years for young and elderly volunteers, respectively. Volunteers were given a single oral 40 mg dose of rosuvastatin. Blood samples for measurement of rosuvastatin plasma concentration were collected up to 96 hours following dosing. Age and gender effects were assessed by constructing 90% confidence intervals (CIs) around the ratios of young/elderly and male/female geometric least square means (glsmeans) for AUC(0-t) and Cmax (derived from ANOVA of log-transformed parameters). Small differences in rosuvastatin pharmacokinetics were noted between age and gender groups. Glsmean AUC(0-t) was 6% higher (90% CI = 0.86-1.30) and glsmean Cmax, 12% higher (90% CI = 0.83-1.51) in the young compared with the elderly group. Glsmean AUC(0-t) was 9% lower (90% CI = 0.74-1.12) and glsmean Cmax 18% lower (90% CI = 0.61-1.11) in the male compared with the female group. These small differences are not considered clinically relevant, and dose adjustments based on age or gender are not anticipated. Rosuvastatin was well tolerated in all volunteers.

Statins enhance incorporation of bone marrow-derived cells into experimental neointimal lesions. However, the contribution of progenitor cells to progression of spontaneous atherosclerotic plaques, and the possible modulatory role of statins in this process, remain poorly understood. We compared the effects of rosuvastatin (1 and 10mg/kg BW) and pravastatin (10mg/kg) on progenitor cell mobilisation, recruitment into atherosclerotic plaques, and lesion growth. Statins were administered over 8 weeks to apolipoprotein E knockout mice on atherogenic diet. In addition, mice were lethally irradiated, followed by transplantation of bone marrow from LacZ transgenic mice. Rosuvastatin reduced lesion area and intima-to-media ratio at the brachiocephalic artery compared to vehicle, while both parameters were not significantly altered by pravastatin. Rosuvastatin also augmented endothelialisation (P<0.05) and reduced the smooth muscle cells (SMC) content (P=0.042) of lesions. Numbers of c-kit, sca-1 and flk-1, sca-1 double-positive progenitor cells were significantly increased in rosuvastatin compared to control-treated mice, both in the bone marrow and the peripheral blood. Similarly, the number of spleen-derived acLDL, lectin double-positive progenitor cells (P=0.001) and colony-forming units (P=0.0104) was significantly increased in mice treated with rosuvastatin compared to vehicle alone. In the bone marrow, increased Akt and p42/44 MAP kinase phosphorylation and upregulated SDF1alpha mRNA expression were observed. Importantly, rosuvastatin treatment also increased the plasma levels of c-kit ligand (P=0.003), and the number of c-kit-positive cells within atherosclerotic lesions (P=0.041). Our findings suggest that rosuvastatin reduces the size of atherosclerotic plaques, and this effect appears to involve progenitor cell mobilisation and recruitment into vascular lesions.

Ten apparently healthy subjects were given 40 mg of simvastatin and tested for urinary α1-microglobulin, albumin, creatinine and cystatin C, up to 24 h after administration. Additionally, urine samples of 76 statin-treated and 456 untreated patients presenting with micro-albuminuria (albuminuria range between 20 and 200 mg/L) were tested for α1-microglobulin and albumin. α1-Microglobulin/albumin ratios were compared. Total cholesterol was measured in 50 patients on statin therapy.

This open-label, single-arm, pharmacokinetic (PK) study in HIV-seronegative volunteers evaluated the bioequivalence of rosuvastatin and lopinavir/ritonavir when administered alone and in combination. Tolerability and lipid changes were also assessed.

crestor 5mg reviews

We showed that the association between ApoB and LDL-C is similar across different lipid-lowering treatment regimes, which suggests that the use of different lipid-lowering agent confers similar ability to predict ApoB levels. When determining CVD risk at an individual patient level, limitation exists when using LDL-C or nonHDL-C per se as risk markers. In the absence of ApoB measurement, we believe that information from both LDL-C and nonHDL-C should be used together to improve the estimation of residual CVD risk among patients who are already receiving lipid lowering therapy.

This study indicated that the number of outcome events is less than 1 per 3000 person years. This study in more than 45,000 Dutch statin users suggests that rosuvastatin does not lead to an increased incidence of rhabdomyolysis, myopathy, acute renal failure or hepatic impairment compared to other statins.

Baseline characteristics of the 16,279 JUPITER study participants (mean age, 66 years; 62% men; 72% white; and 58% with a history of hypertension) who had both a baseline and ≥ 1 postbaseline serum creatinine measurement were similar to the entire population of 17,802 patients who entered the trial. The mean age of the study population was 66 years, 62% were men, 72% were white, and 58% had a history of hypertension. Mean (SD) serum creatinine increased from baseline by 0.08 (0.16) mg/dL and 0.09 (0.14) mg/dL in the rosuvastatin and placebo groups, respectively (P = 0.001) at year 1 and by 0.09 (0.18) and 0.10 (0.16) mg/dL (P = 0.0045) at the final visit. Reductions in MDRD and CKD-EPI eGFR were ∼ 0.5 mL/min/1.73 m(2) greater with placebo than with rosuvastatin (P < 0.004) at year 1 and the final visit. The magnitude of eGFR change was closely related to baseline eGFR, with greater reductions among subjects with eGFR ≥ 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) in both the rosuvastatin and placebo groups. Among those with an eGFR ≥ 90 mL/min/1.73 m(2) , mean changes at year 1 and final visit ranged from -16 to -23 mL/min/1.73 m(2) with MDRD and CKD-EPI, respectively; in contrast, mean changes were <1 mL/min/1.73 m(2) in subjects with eGFR <60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) .

This study suggests that rosuvastatin and olmesartan did not significantly influence each other's pharmacokinetics when coadministered. Although the pharmacokinetics of N-desmethyl rosuvastatin were influenced by olmesartan, such interactions were considered clinically insignificant. All 3 formulations were well tolerated, and no serious adverse events or drug reactions were noted.

Total oversupply expenditure for fiscal year 2009 was 56.9 million Baht when summedfrom monthly basis and 62.0 million when performed as a whole year. Oversupply expenditure was 2.12 to 2.73%per month in term of money and 2.91 to 3.46% in term of quantity. In September 2009, cardiovascular & hematopoietic system had the most oversupply. By brand of drug, the most frequently oversupply were Calcium carbonate (7.60%), Simvastatin (3.69%) and Omeprazole (3.20%). In term of money, the top three highest costs were for Atorvastatin (7.27%), Clopidogrel (6.83%) and Rosuvastatin (4.24%). By health schemes, patients under CSMBS trend to be the most of prescribed drug oversupply at 8.31% (3.21 million Baht in September 2009) with average number of oversupply per patient at 1.83 items and average day left per drug item at 61.83 days.

Using information from an electronic medical records database, for patients >or=18 years of age who received newly prescribed statin therapy during August 2003 to March 2006, who were switched to either rosuvastatin or simvastatin, and who had LDL-C values at baseline, switch and postswitch data were included (N = 277). Percent LDL-C reduction between patients switched to rosuvastatin (n = 155) and those switched to simvastatin (n = 122) were compared. Linear regression model was adjusted for percent LDL-C change from preswitch to switch, LDL-C at time of switch, age, sex, smoking, statin aggressiveness, and therapy duration postswitch. Percent LDL-C reduction for patients switched from atorvastatin to rosuvastatin versus atorvastatin to simvastatin was also compared.

A novel animal model of insulin resistance, the fructose-fed Syrian golden hamster, was employed to investigate the efficacy and mechanisms of action of rosuvastatin, a HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, in ameliorating metabolic dyslipidemia in insulin-resistant states. Fructose feeding for a 2-week period induced insulin resistance and a significant increase in hepatic secretion of VLDL. This was followed by a fructose-enriched diet with or without 10 mg/kg rosuvastatin for 14 days. Fructose feeding in the first 2 weeks caused a significant increase in plasma total buy crestor cholesterol and triglyceride in both groups (n=6, p<0.001). However, there was a significant decline (30%, n=8, p<0.05) in plasma triglyceride levels following rosuvastatin feeding (10 mg/kg). A significant decrease (n=6, p<0.05) was also observed in VLDL-apoB production in hepatocytes isolated from drug-treated hamsters, together with an increased apoB degradation (n=6, p<0.05). Similar results were obtained in parallel cell culture experiments in which primary hepatocytes were first isolated from chow-fed hamsters, and then treated in vitro with 15 microM rosuvastatin for 18 h. Rosuvastatin at 5 microM caused a substantial reduction in synthesis of unesterified cholesterol and cholesterol ester (98 and 25%, n=9, p<0.01 or p<0.05) and secretion of newly synthesized unesterified cholesterol, cholesterol ester, and triglyceride (95, 42, and 60% reduction, respectively, n=9, p<0.01 or p<0.05). This concentration of rosuvastatin also caused a significant reduction (75% decrease, n=4, p<0.01) in the extracellular secretion of VLDL-apoB100, accompanied by a significant increase in the intracellular degradation of apoB100. There was a 12% reduction (not significant, p>0.05) in hepatic MTP and no changes in ER-60 (a chaperone involved in apoB degradation) protein levels. Taken together, these data suggest that the assembly and secretion of VLDL particles in hamster hepatocytes can be acutely inhibited by rosuvastatin in a process involving enhanced apoB degradation. This appears to lead to a significant amelioration of hepatic VLDL-apoB overproduction observed in the fructose-fed, insulin-resistant hamster model.

Several studies have shown that low 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels are associated with higher risk of cardiovascular disease and an increase in 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels protects against cardiovascular disease. In this study, we aimed to compare the effects of rosuvastatin and fluvastatin on vitamin D metabolism. The study population consisted of 134 hyperlipidemic patients who had not previously been treated with lipid lowering medications. Patients were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to rosuvastatin 10 mg or fluvastatin 80 mg XL during the study. Lipid parameters, 25 hydroxyvitamin-D, and bone alkaline phosphatase (BALP) were obtained at baseline and after 8 buy crestor weeks of rosuvastatin and fluvastatin treatment. Sixty-nine patients were administered rosuvastatin, and 65 patients fluvastatin. Total Cholesterol and LDL cholesterol decreased after 8 weeks of both rosuvastatin and fluvastatin treatments. Rosuvastatin was significantly more effective than fluvastatin on lowering total (P < 0.001) and LDL cholesterol (P < 0.001). There was a significant increase in 25-hydroxyvitamin D with rosuvastatin treatment (P < 0.001), whereas no significant change in 25-hydroxyvitamin D was observed with fluvastatin treatment. Mean BALP fell from 18.5 to 9.6 u/I (P < 0.001) with rosuvastatin and from 17.0 to 12.8 with fluvastatin (P= 0.004). There was no significant difference in BALP levels between rosuvastatin and fluvastatin treatment (P= 0.368). The present study demonstrated that 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels increased with rosuvastatin treatment; whereas fluvastatin treatment had no effect on 25-hydroxyvitamin D. This disparity could be related to the potency or the bioavailability of these two statins. Further studies are needed to clarify the relationship between statins and the vitamin D physiology.

Statins have emerged at the forefront of preventive cardiology and have significantly reduced cardiovascular events and mortality. Nonetheless, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States and in other developed countries, as well as the etiology of significant morbidity and health-care expenditure. In an attempt to reduce potentially missed opportunities for instituting preventive therapy, the JUPITER study (Justification for the Use of Statins in Prevention: an Intervention Trial Evaluating Rosuvastatin) and the AURORA study (A Study to Evaluate the Use of Rosuvastatin in Subjects on Regular Hemodialysis: An Assessment of buy crestor Survival and Cardiovascular Events) examined the effect of statins in two specific patient populations who currently do not meet the guidelines for statin treatment, but nonetheless, are at high cardiovascular risk. This review outlines the JUPITER and AURORA trials, interprets the data and significance of the results, analyses the drawbacks and impact of both trials and delineates the potential for further clinical trials.

High platelet reactivity during co-administration of clopidogrel and a CYP3A4-metabolized statin (i.e. atorvastatin) can be lowered by switching to a non-CYP3A4-metabolized statin (i.e rosuvastatin). Aim of this study was to verify if atorvastatin and rosuvastatin have different pharmacodynamic effects also when platelet reactivity while on dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) is normal at baseline. A total of 122 stable coronary artery disease patients receiving DAPT (clopidogrel 75 mg plus aspirin 100mg) who had evidence of normal platelet reactivity after a 1-week statin wash-out entered the trial. Patients were randomly assigned to atorvastatin (40 mg day, n=61) or rosuvastatin (20mg day, n=61) for 30 days. After another 1-week wash-out to avoid buy crestor any carryover effect, cross-over was performed, and patients were switched to the other drug which was continued for 30 days. Platelet reactivity (expressed as P2Y(12) reaction units (PRU) by the VerifyNow assay [Accumetrics, San Diego, California]) was measured after 1-week statin wash-out and at the end of each treatment period. High platelet reactivity was defined as a PRU value >235. After 30-day atorvastatin, platelet reactivity did not significantly change as compared with pre-treatment evaluation (119 ± 66 vs. 136 ± 59 PRU, NS), with 2 patients only showing a PRU>235. Similarly, after 30-day rosuvastatin, platelet reactivity was unchanged vs. baseline (135 ± 46 vs. 128 ± 62 PRU, NS), with PRU>235 occurring in 3 patients. Atorvastatin does not negatively affect DAPT as compared with rosuvastatin when is given to stable coronary artery disease patients with normal platelet reactivity while in statin wash-out (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01567774).

A high-throughput, simple, highly sensitive and specific LC-MS/MS method (liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry) has been developed for the estimation of rosuvastatin (CAS 287714-41-4, RST) with 100 microl human plasma using atorvastatin (CAS 134523-00-5) as an internal standard (IS). The API-4000 LC-MS/MS was operated under the multiple reaction-monitoring mode (MRM) using the electro spray ionization technique. The assay procedure involved direct precipitation of RST and IS from plasma with acetonitrile. Sample preparation with this method yielded clean extracts and consistent recoveries: 91.39% for RST and 99.28% for IS. The total chromatographic run time was 3.5 min and the elution of RST and IS occurred at 2.5 and 3.1 min, respectively; this was achieved with a mobile phase consisting of 0.05 mol/L formic acid: acetonitrile (20:80, v/v) at a flow rate of 0.50 ml/min on an Inertsil ODS-3 column (4.6 x 100 mm, 3.0 microm). The developed method was validated in human plasma with a limit of quantitation of 0.05 ng/ml. A linear response function was established for the range of concentrations of 0.05 to 50.0 ng/ml with a correlation coefficient (r) of 0.999. The inter- and intra-day precision in the measurement of RST quality control (QC) samples at 0.05, 0.15, 25 and 40 ng/ml were in the range of 6.55 to 11.40 Sporanox 100mg Reviews % relative standard deviation (RSD) and 1.76 to 11.17% RSD, respectively. Accuracy in the measurement of QC samples for RST was in the range of 95.02 to 101.37% of the nominal values. RST was stable in the battery of stability studies viz., bench-top, auto-sampler and freeze-thaw cycles. The stability of RST was established for 1 month at -80 degrees C. The application of the assay to a clinical study confirmed the utility of the assay to derive human pharmacokinetic parameters.

The beneficial effects of losartan and rosuvastatin on neointimal formation have been well characterized, but little is known about the combined treatment benefit of these two drugs. This study was designed to investigate the synergistic effect Naprosyn Cost of losartan combined with rosuvastatin on the magnitude of protective action in vascular injury mediated by cuff-induced neointimal formation model in vivo. Losartan at 20 mg/kg or rosuvastatin at 40 mg/kg significantly decreased both the neointimal formation and BrdU-positive cells in neointima, indicating the inhibition of cell proliferation including a progress of DNA synthesis. The combination treatment used lower doses of losartan with rosuvastatin (10 + 20 & 5 + 10 mg/kg, respectively) that proved to be significant in decreasing the neointimal formation and BrdU incorporation. These results were comparable to the diminution attained with monotherapy of either drug in higher doses. Interaction index measured by isobolar method indicated drug synergism in these two combinations of both drugs at lower doses. Therefore, the administration of losartan and rosuvastatin in combination with low doses synergistically decreased in cuff-induced neointimal formation by reducing cell proliferation, suggesting that this drug synergism may be fully effective with, lower adverse effects, for the treatment of vascular remodeling such as restenosis.

In case of equivalent degree of the decrease in LDL-C levels, 24-week combination therapy with atorvastatin and ezetimibe, unlike rosuvastatin treatment, induced increases in basal glycemia, insulinemia, HbA1c, and HOMA-IR index irrespective of the presence of carbohydrate metabolism disturbances before treatment. Our data suggest that adiponectin and leptin are involved in the mechanisms of adverse metabolic effects of the combination of atorvastatin and ezetimibe. Trileptal Tab

Evidence suggesting that statins may contribute to renoprotection has been provided in experimental and clinical studies. Statins restore endothelial nitric oxide (NO) levels by mechanisms including up-regulation of endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) expression. Caveolin-1/eNOS interaction is essential preventing inadequate NO levels. Here, we evaluated whether caveolin-1 associated with eNOS/Hsp70 expression may be involved in the mechanism by which rosuvastatin exerts tubulointerstitial fibrosis protection in neonatal unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO). Neonatal rats subjected to UUO within 2 days of birth and controls were treated daily with vehicle or rosuvastatin (10 mg/kg/day) by oral gavage for 14 days. After UUO, morphometric evaluation of interstitial fibrosis showed increased interstitial volume (Vv) associated with reduced NO availability, increased mRNA and protein caveolin-1 expression as well as downregulation eNOS and heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) expression. Conversely, rosuvastatin treatment attenuated the fibrotic response linked to high NO availability, decreased mRNA and protein caveolin-1 expression, and marked upregulation of eNOS and Hsp70 expression at transcriptional and posttranscriptional levels. Moreover, protein-protein interactions determined by immunoprecipitation and by immunofluorescence co-localization have shown decreased caveolin-1/eNOS as well as increased Hsp70/eNOS interaction, after rosuvastatin treatment. A dose dependent effect of rosuvastatin on decreased caveolin-1 expression was shown in control cortex. In conclusion, our data suggest that statins contribute to the protection against tubulointerstitial fibrosis injury in neonatal early kidney obstruction by increased NO availability, involving interaction of up-regulated eNOS/Hsp70 and down-regulated caveolin-1.

Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is a hereditary metabolic disorder characterised by defects in the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor, elevated LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) levels and an extremely high risk for premature cardiovascular disease. Heterozygous FH occurs in about one of every 500 individuals in the United States and Europe. The high prevalence of FH and associated morbidity and mortality strongly support aggressive screening and treatment. There are two major barriers to effective management of FH: 1) the failure to screen for this disease in people who may be at increased risk for it; and 2) the inability of most available therapies to enable achievement of LDL-C goals. More aggressive screening, coupled with new genetic screening techniques, and more powerful 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors have the potential to overcome these limitations. Automated genetic assays are now available for detection of common LDL receptor mutations in individuals at risk for FH, and they have been used effectively to identify patients with this condition. Recent clinical trial results with the new synthetic statin rosuvastatin (Crestor; AstraZeneca, Alderley Park, Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK; licensed from Shionogi & Co, Ltd, Osaka, Japan) in patients with heterozygous FH have shown that it decreased LDL-C by 58% and increased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) by 12%. Rosuvastatin was significantly superior to high-dose atorvastatin in improving these lipid parameters as well as total cholesterol, apolipoprotein (apo) B, apo A-I, and the LDL-C/HDL-C ratio. Thus, new screening tools and medical therapies have the potential to significantly improve management and reduce cardiovascular disease risk for patients with FH.
