lipitor 25 mg

In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled fashion, 50 hypertensive and hypercholesterolemic patients were allocated to receive 10 mg of atorvastatin or placebo for 26 weeks. Arterial stiffness was assessed by aortic pulse-wave velocity (PWV) using a Sphygmocor device. Central arterial pressure waveform parameters were estimated by radial artery applanation tonometry. Heart rate-adjusted augmentation index (AIx(75)) was used as measure of wave reflections.

The objective of this study was to evaluate whether levels of high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) in granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) patients are associated with carotid atherosclerosis, related to levels of soluble receptor for advanced glycation end-products (sRAGE) and influenced by immunosuppressive or lipid-lowering therapy. Twenty-three GPA patients and 20 controls were evaluated for HMGB1- and sRAGE levels and for carotid atherosclerosis using ultrasound to determine intima-media thickness (IMT). In vitro the effect of atorvastatin on the production of HMGB1 by lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) was assessed. Serum HMGB1 and sRAGE levels did not differ between patients and controls. A negative correlation was found between sRAGE and maximum IMT but HMGB1 and carotid IMT were not related. HMGB1 levels were reduced in GPA patients on statins and prednisolone. In vitro, atorvastatin reduced HMGB1 levels in supernatants of activated HUVEC. In conclusion, carotid IMT is inversely correlated with sRAGE levels but not with HMGB1 levels. Statins and prednisolone are associated with reduced serum HMGB1 levels and atorvastatin decreases HMGB1 release by activated HUVEC in vitro, indicating an additional anti-inflammatory effect of statins.

The mean entry values (D0) of TC, LDL, HDL and TG (in mmol/L) were 5.24, 3.26, 1.07 and 1.31, respectively. The therapy with atorvastatin 80 mg resulted in a decrease of TC levels in the first morning (D1) by 6.1% and in the second morning (D2) by 13.2% (p<0.001 for all comparisons with the entry value D0); LDL was decreased by 5.8% (D1) and 15.6% (D2) (p<0.001 vs. D0); the level of HDL was decreased by 7.5% (D1) and 12.1% (D2) (p<0.001 vs. D0). In contrast, the TG level was higher in the first morning (D1) by 20.6% and in the following morning (D2) by 25.5% (p<0.05 vs. D0).

Statins have pleiotropic effects which include anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. In the present study, dendritic cells treated with atorvastatin (statin-DCs) could be induced into tolerogenic DCs. Administration of these tolerogenic DCs ameliorated clinical symptoms in experimental autoimmune neuritis (EAN), which was associated with reduced number of inflammatory cells in sciatic nerves, inhibited CD4(+) T cells proliferation, down-regulated expression of co-stimulatory molecules (CD80 and CD86) and MHC class II, decreased levels of IFN-γ, TNF-α and IL-17A, increased number of NKR-P1(+) cells (including NK and NKT cells), up-regulated number of Treg cells in lymph node MNC as well as increased Foxp3 expression in the thymus. These data indicated that statin-DCs could develop as a new therapeutic strategy to GBS in the future.

Fifty-two male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups. The normal and sham-operated groups received no treatment. The I/R group was intragastrically administered with physiological saline, and the intervention group received atorvastatin (10 mg/kg) prepared with physiological saline according to reperfusion time (time of palinesthesia, 24 and 48 hours). All rats were killed after 72 hours of reperfusion.

Atorvastatin treatment for 2 and 8 weeks restored BBB integrity, indicated by a substantial reduction of IgG and apo B, particularly within the hippocampus. Pravastatin, a water-soluble statin was less effective than atorvastatin (lipid-soluble). Statin effects were independent of changes in plasma lipid homeostasis. Ibuprofen, a lipid-soluble cyclooxygenase inhibitor attenuated cerebral accumulation of IgG and apo B as effectively as atorvastatin. Our findings are consistent with the drug effects being independent of plasma lipid homeostasis.

Twenty-seven patients (mean age 61 +/- 8 years) with chronic cerebrovascular disease and hyperlipidaemia were included in the study. Serum lipid levels, haemorrheological parameters (haematocrit, plasma fibrinogen levels, plasma and whole blood viscosity [WBV] and red blood cell [RBC] aggregation and deformability) and platelet aggregation were assessed at baseline and after 1 and 3 months of treatment with atorvastatin (Sortis) 10 mg/day. von Willebrand factor (vWF) activity (a measure of endothelial function) was measured at baseline and after 1 month of treatment. Adverse events were recorded at each visit. Physical examinations, haematological assessments and serum and urine chemistry assays were performed during the study.

A total of 48 male New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into 4 groups (n = 12 each): control group (A), atovastatin group (B), tinidazole group (C) and combination group (D, atovastatin + tinidazole). All groups received interventions according to the experiment design. During Week 1-4, mandibular first premolars were used to establish periodontitis model. For Week 1, adaptive feeding was provided with 50% normal diet + 50% high-fat diet. Then a full high fat-diet was used to establish atherosclerosis model. During Week 16-20, experimental drug intervention was administered twice weekly: group A received the same volume of saline, group B atorvastatin tablets 1.5 mg/kg, group C tinidazole tablets 150 mg/kg and group D atorvastatin tablets 1.5 mg/kg + tinidazole tablets 150 mg/kg. At the end of 20-week intervention, the animals were sacrificed to take vascular and heart tissue samples. Immunohistochemistry and fluorescent polymerase chain reaction (PCR) were employed for quantitative determinations.

The objective of the study was to evaluate potential benefits of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) rich fish oil supplementation as an adjunct to statin therapy for hyperlipidaemia. A total of 45 hyperlipidaemic patients on stable statin therapy with persistent elevation of plasma triglycerides (averaging 2.2 mmol/L) were randomised to take 4 g/day (n = 15) or 8 g/day (n = 15) of tuna oil or olive oil (placebo, n = 15) for 6 months. Plasma lipids, blood pressure and arterial compliance were assessed initially and after 3 and 6 months in 40 subjects who completed the trial. Plasma triglycerides were reduced 27% by 8 g/day DHA-rich fish oil (P < 0.05) but not by 4 g/day when compared with the placebo and this reduction was achieved by 3 months and was sustained at 6 months. Even though total cholesterol was already well controlled by the statin treatment (mean initial level 4.5 mmol/L), there was a further dose-dependent reduction with fish oil supplementation (r = -0.344, P < 0.05). The extent of total cholesterol reduction correlated (r = -0.44) with the initial total cholesterol levels (P < 0.005). In the subset with initial plasma cholesterol above 3.8 mmol/L, plasma very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) were isolated and assayed for cholesterol and apolipoprotein B (apoB) at the commencement of the trial and at 3 months of intervention. Fish oil tended to lower cholesterol and apoB in VLDL and raise both in LDL. There were no changes in IDL cholesterol, IDL apoB and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The results demonstrate that DHA-rich fish oil supplementation (2.16 g DHA/day) can improve plasma lipids in a dose-dependent manner in patients taking statins and these changes were achieved by 3 months. Fish oil in addition to statin therapy may be preferable to drug combinations for the treatment of combined hyperlipidaemia.

Yucatan miniswine (20-30 kg) were fed either a normal (ND group, n = 8) or high-cholesterol diet, with (HC-ATOR group, n = 8) or without (HC group, n = 8) atorvastatin (3 mg x kg(-1) x d(-1)), for 13 weeks. Chronic ischemia was induced by ameroid constrictor placement around the circumflex artery, followed 3 weeks later by perivascular vascular endothelial growth factor administration (2 microg over 4 weeks) with a sustained release osmotic pump. Microvessel relaxation responses, myocardial perfusion, and myocardial expression of angiogenic mediators were assessed 4 weeks later.

Single-pill combination therapy (amlodipine/atorvastatin) might be more effective than double-pill therapy (amlodipine+atorvastatin) in patients with diabetes and concomitant hypertension requiring statin therapy. We compared the cost-effectiveness of a single-pill with that of double-pill for control of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels, with the ultimate goal of cardiovascular disease prevention, in these patients using a cost-effectiveness analysis model that considered medication adherence.

Similar to atorvastatin, compound-T8 reduced plasma non-HDL cholesterol levels accompanied with accelerated LDL clearance in guinea pigs. Combination therapy additively decreased plasma non-HDL cholesterol levels. Therefore, monotherapy with a farnesoid X receptor antagonist and combination therapy of a farnesoid X receptor antagonist with atorvastatin would be attractive dyslipidemia treatment options.

At baseline Na(+)/Li(+) CT activity was significantly higher in group A and B compared with the control group and correlated directly with obesity indices, systolic and diastolic BP, total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, TG, apolipoprotein B (apoB), HOMA-IR, uric acid and inversely with high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol and apoA1. Systolic and diastolic BP levels, HOMA-IR and Na(+)/Li(+) CT activity were significantly decreased after atorvastatin treatment in both patient groups. The reduction in Na(+)/Li(+) CT activity correlated with baseline Na(+)/Li(+) CT activity and the changes in HOMA-IR values.

Although both atorvastatin and ezetimibe may cause myopathy, statin-induced myopathy is less likely at low doses, and ezetimibe is only rarely reported to induce myopathy. Also, ezetimibe is not usually known to potentiate statin-induced myopathy. We report a case of myalgia with elevated serum creatinine phosphokinase in a patient after 2 months of therapy with fixed dose combination of atorvastatin and ezetimibe (10 mg each). At the time of the event, patient was undertaking moderate physical exertion in the form of brisk walking for 30-40 min a day and was detected to have low serum Vitamin D levels. The adverse event resolved after stopping atorvastatin-ezetimibe combination therapy. Potential risk factors, such as physical exertion and Vitamin D deficiency, co-existent in dyslipidemic patients, may exacerbate myopathy potential of these drugs, and precipitate muscular symptoms even at a low-dose.

Hypertension is prevalent in the United States and remains uncontrolled. The primary objective of the study was to determine the effect of once-daily dosing of a combination therapy for blood pressure (BP) and dyslipidemia using home BP monitoring on reaching clinical BP and the effect of daily dosing of combination therapy on reaching lipid goals. The study was conducted in middle-aged, indigent, African Americans who had high-risk, resistant hypertension and dyslipidemia. Patients were randomly assigned to either the home and clinic BP group or usual care group and were followed for 6 months. The average BPs for each group were compared and used to titrate the study drug appropriately. Both groups achieved significant declines in BP, total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) (P<.0001). These findings demonstrate that BP control could be achieved at a rate of 43.5% compared with the 2004 national control rate of 35%. The LDL control rate was also improved. Cardiovascular risk reduction has been proven to be achieved through managing lipids and BP. This trial demonstrates that these goals can be achieved similar to other groups in indigent African Americans with high-risk hypertension and dyslipidemia.

Statins upregulate endothelial thrombomodulin (TM) by mechanisms that involve members of the Kruppel-like factor family. Although Kruppel-like factors are unequivocally implicated in this process, experimental evidence points to additional mechanisms. Deletion/mutation analysis of reporter constructs was used to demonstrate that mutation of the SP1/Kruppel-like factor element in the TM promoter only partially abolishes statin-induced TM upregulation, whereas simultaneous mutation of relevant heat shock elements and SP1/Kruppel-like factor element completely prevents statin-induced TM upregulation, thus demonstrating a role for heat shock factors (HSFs). We further identified the pathway by which statins increase binding of HSF1 to heat shock elements in the TM promoter. Specifically, statins caused NO-dependent dissociation of HSF1 from heat shock protein 90, nuclear translocation of HSF1, and binding to heat shock elements in the TM promoter. Statins also decreased nuclear content of the HSF1 chaperone 14-3-3beta. In addition to reducing TM upregulation, inhibition of HSF1 reduced statin-induced upregulation of tissue plasminogen activator, whereas downregulation of thrombomospondin, plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, or connective tissue growth factor was unaffected. Knockdown of 14-3-3beta or inhibition of HSF1 phosphorylation enhanced the effect of statins on TM and tissue plasminogen activator, but did not influence thrombomospondin, plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, or connective tissue growth factor. These data demonstrate that HSF1 is involved in statin-induced regulation of TM. They also suggest that analogous mechanisms may apply to genes that are upregulated by statins, but not to downregulated genes. These results may have broad implications and suggest the use of heat shock protein modulators to selectively regulate pleiotropic statin effects.

We performed a post hoc analysis of the InPractice data looking at the concordance between LDL-C, non-high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (nonHDL-C) and total cholesterol with ApoB values. The study involved 786 high-risk CVD patients from 34 primary care centers initially treated with simvastatin (S) 40 mg at baseline subsequently randomized to adding ezetimibe 10 mg to S 40 mg (E/S40) or changed to atorvastatin (A) 40 mg or to rosuvastatin (R) 5-10 mg for 6 weeks.

In a 12-month prospective controlled clinical trial we enrolled 34 male patients (mean age 57 ± 8 years) who passed through successful CABG and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) level >2.6 mmol/L prior to the operation despite statin treatment. Patients were allocated into 2 groups: active (n = 17, weekly apheresis by cascade plasma filtration (CPF) plus atorvastatin), and control (n = 17, atorvastatin alone).

Statins are selective inhibitors of 3-hydroxyl-3-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase, the rate-limiting enzyme of the mevalonate pathway for cholesterol biosynthesis. Increasing evidence indicates that statins, particularly atorvastatin, are neuroprotective in several conditions, including stroke, cerebral ischemia, traumatic brain injury, and excitotoxic amino acid exposure. However, only a few studies have investigated whether statins modulate seizure activity. In the buy lipitor current study we investigated whether atorvastatin or simvastatin alters the seizures induced by pentylenetetrazol (PTZ), a classical convulsant.

In addition to their lipid-lowering effects, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) induce a variety of pleiotropic actions that have been recently studied in the area of cardiovascular and renal protection. In the present studies we sought to determine whether statins retain beneficial effects in the experimental model of NO deficiency achieved by chronic administration of a pressor dose of L-arginine analogue N-nitro-L-arginine buy lipitor -methyl ester (L-NAME).

Short-term administration of statins during the perioperative period has been suggested to improve cardiovascular (CV) outcomes in patients undergoing cardiac and vascular surgery. The effectiveness of this therapy, the optimal administration time and the statin best suited to improve cardiac performance under hyperglycemic conditions, however, are unknown. In this study, we compared the effects of 10 mg/kg/day simvastatin (SV), pravastatin (PV) and atorvastatin (AV), on the CV status of fully anesthetized streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats 4 weeks following diabetes induction. buy lipitor At this stage, cardiac function is compromised. The rats were anesthetized to mimic presurgical conditions. Cardiac status was evaluated twice by echocardiography, first 24 h after statin administration, and then after daily statin administration for 1 week. After 24 h of statin administration, CV parameters were not improved. Continued daily administration of SV and AV over a 1-week period, by contrast, significantly improved ejection fraction from 52.20 ± 2.33% before treatment to 64.89 ± 1.12% with AV and to 69.71 ± 2.30% with SV (n = 9, p < 0.05). The cardiac output index was also significantly improved from 51.13 ± 6.86 ml/min × 100 g body weight (BW) before treatment to 98.74 ± 13.78 ml/min × 100 g BW with AV and to 84.94 ± 8.64 ml/min × 100 g BW with SV. Only AV increased stroke volume from 0.50 ± 0.08 to 0.83 ± 0.13 ml (n = 9, p < 0.05). Unlike the other statins tested, PV provided no beneficial effects, regardless of the regimen of administration. Our results indicate that daily administration of AV and SV for 1 week enhances cardiac performance in fully anesthetized diabetic rats. This study of short-term statin administration may have strong clinical implications for improving perioperative outcomes in diabetic patients.

Statin pharmaceuticals, heavily prescribed in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia, are competitive inhibitors of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme-A reductase (HMGR). In plants, these compounds also inhibit HMGR, which regulates cytosolic isoprenoid biosynthesis in the mevalonic acid (MVA) buy lipitor pathway. Phytotoxicity was evaluated in the higher aquatic plant Lemna gibba exposed to atorvastatin and lovastatin for 7-days by measuring the concentrations of sterols and ubiquinone; products downstream in the MVA pathway. The efficiency of the parallel and unaffected methylerythritol phosphate pathway (MEP) was also evaluated by measuring the end product, plastoquinone. Statin treatment caused an accumulation of plastoquinone, and unexpectedly, ubiquinone, an artifact likely due to metabolite sharing from the plastidial MEP pathway. Statins were, however, highly phytotoxic to L. gibba and HPLC-UV analysis of plant extracts showed significantly decreased concentrations of both stigmasterol and beta-sitosterol, which are critical components of plant membranes and regulate morphogenesis and development. EC10 values for atorvastatin and lovastatin were as small as 26.1 and 32.8 microg/L, respectively. However, hazard quotients indicated that statins present little risk to the model higher aquatic plant Lemna gibba at environmentally relevant concentrations, even though pathway-specific endpoints were 2-3 times more sensitive than traditional gross morphological endpoints typically used in risk assessment.

Endoglin (a type III TGF-β receptor) is able to modulate ligand binding and signaling by association with the TGF-β type I receptors (ALK-1 and ALK-5). In this study, we hypothesized whether atorvastatin treatment affects endoglin/ALK-1/ buy lipitor p-Smad1/VEGF expression in the aorta and endoglin levels in serum in ApoE/LDLR double knockout mice. ApoE/LDLR double knockout mice were fed with a diet containing either 1% of cholesterol (CHOL) or cholesterol with atorvastatin (ATV) at a dose of 50mg/kg/day. Biochemical analysis of cholesterol levels and ELISA analysis of endoglin levels in serum, lesion area size, immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis in mice aorta were performed. Atorvastatin treatment resulted in a significant decrease of total, VLDL and LDL cholesterol, atherosclerotic lesion size and endoglin serum levels in comparison with CHOL mice. On the other hand, atorvastatin treatment significantly increased the expressions of endoglin by 1431%, ALK-1 by 310%, p-Smad1 by 135% and VEGF by 62% in aorta when compared to CHOL mice. In conclusion, it has been demonstrated that atorvastatin increases endoglin/ALK-1/p-Smad1/VEGF expression in aorta and decreases the size of atherosclerotic lesions, suggesting that activation of this endothelial-protective pathway might support the antiatherogenic effects of atorvastatin. Moreover, atorvastatin concurrently decreased serum levels of endoglin suggesting that monitoring of endoglin levels in blood might represent an important marker of the progression and/or treatment of atherosclerosis.

The objective of this work was to design and characterize liquid and solid self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS) for poorly soluble atorvastatin. To optimize the composition of liquid atorvastatin-SEDDS, solubility tests, pseudoternary phase diagrams, emulsification studies and other in vitro examinations (thermodynamic stability, droplet size and zeta potential analysis) were performed. Due to the disadvantages of liquid SEDDS (few choices for dosage forms, low stability and portability during the manufacturing process), attempts were also made to obtain solid SEDDS. Solid SEDDS were successfully obtained using the spray drying technique from two optimized liquid formulations, CF3 and OF2. Despite liquid SEDDS formulation, CF3 was characterized by lower turbidity, higher percentage transmittance and better self-emulsifying properties, and based on the in vitro dissolution study it can be concluded that better solubilization properties were buy lipitor exhibited by solid formulation OF2. Overall, the studies demonstrated the possibility of formulating liquid and solid SEEDS as promising carriers of atorvastatin. SEDDS, with their unique solubilization properties, provide the opportunity to deliver lipophilic drugs to the gastrointestinal tract in a solubilized state, avoiding dissolution-a restricting factor in absorption rate of BCS Class 2 drugs, including atorvastatin.

Chlorogenic acid (CGA) is one of the most abundant polyphenols in the human diet and is suggested to be a potential antiatherosclerotic agent due to its proposed hypolipidemic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of CGA on atherosclerosis buy lipitor development in ApoE(-/-) mice and its potential mechanism. ApoE(-/-) mice were fed a cholesterol-rich diet without (control) or with CGA (200 and 400 mg/kg) or atorvastatin (4 mg/kg) for 12 weeks. During the study plasma lipid and inflammatory parameters were determined. Treatment with CGA (400 mg/kg) reduced atherosclerotic lesion area and vascular dilatation in the aortic root, comparable to atorvastatin. CGA (400 mg/kg) also significantly decreased plasma levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol as well as inflammatory markers. Supplementation with CGA or CGA metabolites-containing serum suppressed oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL)-induced lipid accumulation and stimulated cholesterol efflux from RAW264.7 cells. CGA significantly increased the mRNA levels of PPARγ, LXRα, ABCA1 and ABCG1 as well as the transcriptional activity of PPARγ. Cholesterol efflux assay showed that three major metabolites, caffeic, ferulic and gallic acids, significantly stimulated cholesterol efflux from RAW264.7 cells. These results suggest that CGA potently reduces atherosclerosis development in ApoE(-/-) mice and promotes cholesterol efflux from RAW264.7 macrophages. Caffeic, ferulic and gallic acids may be the potential active compounds accounting for the in vivo effect of CGA.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of atorvastatin on lipid lowering, cardiovascular (CV) events, and adverse events in women compared with men in 6 clinical trials. In the Incremental Decrease in End Points Through Aggressive Lipid Lowering (IDEAL) trial (atorvastatin 80 mg vs simvastatin 20 to 40 mg), the Treating to New Targets (TNT) trial (atorvastatin 80 vs 10 mg), the Stroke Prevention by Aggressive Reduction in Cholesterol Levels (SPARCL) trial (atorvastatin 80 mg vs placebo), and the Collaborative Atorvastatin Diabetes Study (CARDS), the Anglo-Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial (ASCOT), and the Atorvastatin Study for Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease Endpoints in Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (ASPEN) (atorvastatin 10 mg vs placebo), lipid changes on treatment were compared between genders with studies grouped by dose. The association of on-study low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and CV events by gender was evaluated in the combined studies and the impact of gender on adverse events in each study separately. Major CV events occurred in 3,083 of 30,000 men (10.3%) and 823 of 9,173 women (9.0%). Changes in lipids were similar in women and men. Major CV events were associated with gender-specific quintiles of on-treatment LDL cholesterol for women and men. In women, LDL cholesterol was a significant predictor of stroke, but not in men. Discontinuation rates due to adverse events were higher in women in 4 of 6 trials, but in only 1 trial was a significant treatment-gender buy lipitor interaction seen. Myalgia rates were slightly higher in women in both statin and placebo groups. In conclusion, the response of women to atorvastatin was similar to that of men, with slightly more discontinuations due to adverse events. Higher on-treatment LDL cholesterol was significantly associated with more CV events in both genders, but the association was stronger for stroke in women and for coronary heart disease death in men.

Apheresis only partially controls raised low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, who usually respond poorly to lipid-lowering drugs. The efficacy and mechanism of action of a new 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitor, atorvastatin, was therefore investigated in seven homozygotes undergoing apheresis. One receptor-negative and six receptor-defective homozygotes undergoing plasma exchange or LDL apheresis every 2 weeks were studied during 2 months each on placebo and Asacol Generic Brand on atorvastatin 80 mg daily. Changes in plasma lipids and mevalonic acid, an index of cholesterol synthesis, were measured and the kinetics of the rebound of low density lipoprotein cholesterol and apolipoprotein B after apheresis were analyzed. All subjects had significant improvements on atorvastatin. Mean decreases in low density lipoprotein cholesterol were 31% greater both pre- and post-apheresis on atorvastatin compared with placebo, accompanied by a 63% decrease in mevalonic acid. Percentage changes in low density lipoprotein cholesterol and mevalonic acid were closely correlated (r = 0.89, P = 0.007). The mean production rates of low density lipoprotein cholesterol and apolipoprotein B were 21% and 25% lower, respectively, on atorvastatin than on placebo (P < 0.005 and <0.02) but changes in mean fractional clearance rates were not statistically significant. We conclude that atorvastatin enhances the efficacy of plasma exchange and low density lipoprotein apheresis in patients who lack low density lipoprotein receptors. This effect appears to be due to marked inhibition of cholesterol synthesis which results in a decreased rate of production of low density lipoprotein.

Lysinuric protein intolerance (LPI) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by defective transport of cationic amino acids lysine, arginine, and ornithine. Low plasma concentrations of arginine and ornithine lead to impaired urea cycle function and, subsequently, decreased protein tolerance. Patients often develop natural aversion to protein-rich foods, which may predispose them to nutritional problems. The objective of this retrospective study was to investigate lipid values and efficacy of lipid-lowering therapy in patients with LPI.
