A few studies have started reporting the effects of pulsed combination drug therapy involving rosuvastatin in their regimens.

Use of Rosuvastatin versus Atorvastatin in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Effects of lovastatin therapy on very-low-density lipoprotein triglyceride metabolism in subjects with combined hyperlipidemia: Shepherd J, et al.

Prospective studies have also shown that these patients have increased incidence of cardiovascular events. Rosuvastatin in diabetes Type 2 diabetes is associated esttudio increased risk of coronary heart disease. Despite these reductions, there was no significant effect of treatment on the composite primary end point time to a major cardiovascular event or its individual components nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, or death from cardiovascular causes.

Sub-group analyses of 4S showed the benefits of simvastatin in reducing major coronary events and revascularisation in diabetic patients with coronary heart disease.


In this patient group, choice is often limited and determined by the anti-retroviral regimen. Serum cholesterol concentration and coronary heart disease in population with low cholesterol concentrations.

Its benefits against cost in patients with lower cardiovascular risk remain an issue of debate. Justification for the Use of Statins in Prevention: Rosuvastatin is less lipophilic than other statins such as atorvastatin and simvastatin but more lipophilic than pravastatin.

Finally we address its place in clinical practice. In one study combination of rosuvastatin 5 mg to 20 mg with feno-fibric acid demonstrated significant efficacy in lowering triglycerides and increasing HDL-C when compared with rosuvastatin alone.

Introduction Ischaemic heart disease IHD is the leading cause of mortality worldwide and constitutes a major health burden. Rosuvastatin is a potent statin with pharmacologic and pharmacokinetic advantages. This leads to higher serum rosuvastatin concentrations in patients taking protease inhibitors.

The risk was higher in older participants of the statin trials. Efficacy and safety of estudip coadministered with atorvastatin or simvastatin in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. The 4S study showed that simvastatin 20 mg to 40 mg daily significantly reduced major coronary events, coronary death and overall mortality in patients post-MI or those jupited ischaemic heart disease.

Rosuvastatin: A Review of the Pharmacology and Clinical Effectiveness in Cardiovascular Disease

Rosuvastatin in women Previous primary prevention trials have poorly demonstrated reduction in coronary events in women. Rosuvastatin is less likely to cause metabolic drug to drug interactions since it has limited metabolism by CYP isoenzymes.

An Assessment of Survival and Cardiovascular Events investigated the effects of rosuvastatin on cardiovascular risk in haemodialysis patients. When hsCRP is included in enrolment of primary prevention, rosuvastatin produced greater benefit when compared with other statins.

Subsequent meta-analysis of clinical trials and post marketing experience have consistently shown that rosuvastatin has a comparable safety profile to other available statins when used at 10 mg to 40 mg daily dose. Rosuvastatin for primary prevention in older persons with elevated C-reactive protein and low to average lowdensity lipoprotein cholesterol levels: Comparative studies have shown the potential benefits of rosuvastatin in secondary prevention and high intensity therapy.
