Atorvastatin significantly reduced the risk of major cardiovascular events and procedures among diabetic patients with well-controlled hypertension and without a history of CHD or markedly elevated cholesterol concentrations. The proportional reduction in risk was similar to that among participants who did not have diagnosed diabetes. Allocation to atorvastatin prevented approximately 9 diabetic participants from suffering a first major cardiovascular event or procedure for every 1,000 treated for 1 year.

Clinical pharmacists in the family medicine center implemented a therapeutic conversion program (30 patients), switching atorvastatin to a new formulary regimen of simvastatin, rosuvastatin, or ezetimibe-simvastatin, using an algorithm designed to achieve patient-specific goals for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL). Usual care occurred in the other ambulatory care clinics without clinical pharmacists (87 patients), where medical providers switched atorvastatin to a formulary regimen based on a suggested (but optional) equipotency conversion algorithm.

Statins are inhibitors of the enzyme 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, the rate-limiting step in cholesterol biosynthesis. Statins effectively prevent and reduce the risk of coronary artery disease through lowering serum cholesterol, and also exert anti-thrombotic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects independently of changes in cholesterol levels. On the other hand, clinical and experimental evidence suggests that abrupt cessation of statin treatment (i.e. statin withdrawal) is associated with a deleterious rebound phenomenon. In fact, statin withdrawal increases the risk of thrombotic vascular events, causes impairment of endothelium-dependent relaxation and facilitates experimental seizures. However, evidence for statin withdrawal-induced detrimental effects to the brain parenchyma is still lacking. In the present study adult male Wistar rats were treated with atorvastatin for seven days (10mg/kg/day) and neurochemical assays were performed in the cerebral cortex 30 min (atorvastatin treatment) or 24h (atorvastatin withdrawal) after the last atorvastatin administration. We found that atorvastatin withdrawal decreased levels of nitric oxide and mitochondrial superoxide dismutase activity, whereas increased NADPH oxidase activity and immunoreactivity for the protein nitration marker 3-nitrotyrosine in the cerebral cortex. Catalase, glutathione-S-transferase and xanthine oxidase activities were not altered by atorvastatin treatment or withdrawal, as well as protein carbonyl and 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal immunoreactivity. Immunoprecipitation of mitochondrial SOD followed by analysis of 3-nitrotyrosine revealed increased levels of nitrated mitochondrial SOD, suggesting the mechanism underlying the atorvastatin withdrawal-induced decrease in enzyme activity. Altogether, our results indicate the atorvastatin withdrawal elicits oxidative/nitrosative damage in the rat cerebral cortex, and that changes in NADPH oxidase activity and mitochondrial superoxide dismutase activities may underlie such harmful effects.

This randomized trial was conducted to investigate the effects of atorvastatin and simvastatin on uric acid homeostasis in patients treated for primary hyperlipidemia. A total of 180 patients were enrolled; patients were randomly assigned to 40 mg/d of either atorvastatin or simvastatin. Serum lipid and metabolic parameters were measured at baseline and at 6 and 12 weeks of treatment; random urine samples were simultaneously obtained for creatinine, sodium, and uric acid determinations.

We compared 36 patients with polygenic hypercholesterolemia and 18 healthy subjects. Patients were randomized to either a low-fat diet (Group A) or low-fat diet plus atorvastatin 10 mg/day (Group B) for 30 days. Lower serum adiponectin levels and higher lipid profile, gp91(phox) serum levels, urinary isoprostanes, platelet oxygen free radicals, characterized patients. After 30 days of treatment, group B showed higher levels of adiponectin which is inversely correlated to reduced levels of sgp91(phox), urinary isoprostanes and platelet oxygen free radicals (p<0.001). In in vitro model, adiponectin dosages between 5 and 10 ng/ml inhibited p47(phox) translocation to gp91(phox) and soluble gp91(phox) cleavage indicating its ability in inhibiting the assembly of NADPH oxidase subunits on cell membrane and in turn the enzymatic system activation.

Hypercholesterolaemia is associated with a loss of endothelium-dependent vasodilation, which may facilitate the occurrence of myocardial ischaemia in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). The improvement of endothelial dilator function after 4 to 6 weeks of oral lipid-lowering therapy has been documented. Whether this early restoration of endothelial function by statins translates into anti-ischaemic effects is unknown. This study was designed to determine the effect of 4 weeks' treatment with 80 mg atorvastatin daily on exercise-induced ischaemia in patients with stable ischaemic heart disease (IHD) receiving standard anti-anginal drug therapy.

By the end of BPLA in both groups originally assigned statin or placebo, approximately 65% were receiving a statin, and lipid levels had equalized. The benefits of atorvastatin observed in LLA were sustained throughout BPLA. At the end of BPLA, in those assigned amlodipine-based therapy, atorvastatin reduced coronary heart disease deaths and nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI) by 46% [hazard ratio 0.54, confidence interval (CI) 0.40-0.72, P < 0.0001], stroke by 37% [hazard ratio 0.63, CI 0.46-0.87, P = 0.004] and total cardiovascular events and procedures by 27% [hazard ratio 0.73, CI 0.63-0.86, P < 0.0001]. In the atenolol-based group, atorvastatin reduced coronary heart disease death and nonfatal MI by 25% [hazard ratio 0.75, CI 0.57-0.97, P = 0.03], stroke by 10% [hazard ratio 0.90, CI 0.69-1.18, P = 0.43] and total cardiovascular events and procedures by 13% [hazard ratio 0.87, CI 0.76-1.0, P = 0.05]. P values for heterogeneity were low, but failed to achieve statistical significance (0.10, 0.10 and 0.11 for chronic heart disease, stroke and total cardiovascular events, respectively).

Nitric oxide (NO) is the main endothelial-derived relaxation factor and plays a major role in cardiovascular homeostasis. This key signalling molecule is synthesised by a family of nitric oxide synthases (NOS), and the endothelial isoform (eNOS) is the most important for nitric oxide formation in the cardiovascular system. Cardiovascular drugs including statins increase eNOS expression and up-regulate NO formation, and this effect may be responsible for protective, pleiotropic effects produced by statins. However, the genetic background may also affect NO formation in the cardiovascular system, and recent studies have shown that genetic polymorphisms in the eNOS gene modify endogenous NO formation and the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. For example, cases with the CC genotype for the T(-786)C polymorphism in the eNOS gene are at increased cardiovascular risk when compared with those with the TT genotype. Interestingly, pharmacogenetic studies have recently indicated that atorvastatin improves NO formation more clearly in these individuals. However, it is not known whether this polymorphism really increases cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and whether atorvastatin or other statins attenuate the morbidity and mortality rates in cases with the CC genotype. If proved true, then statins-induced up-regulation of eNOS and increased NO formation could compensate for a genetic 'disadvantage' in cases with the CC genotype. This could be a significant advance in the prevention of cardiovascular events. It is necessary although to validate this hypothesis with clinical trials which will require a long follow-up to assess relevant clinical events and not only surrogate biomarkers.

In this randomized, 2-way crossover study, the potential for interaction was investigated between atorvastatin and ximelagatran, an oral direct thrombin inhibitor. Healthy female and male volunteers (n = 16) received atorvastatin 40 mg as a single oral dose and, in a separate study period, ximelagatran 36 mg twice daily for 5 days plus a 40-mg oral dose of atorvastatin on the morning of day 4. In the 15 subjects completing the study, no pharmacokinetic interaction was detected between atorvastatin and ximelagatran for all parameters investigated, including melagatran (the active form of ximelagatran) area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) and maximum plasma concentration, atorvastatin acid AUC, and AUC of active 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme-A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors. Atorvastatin did not alter the melagatran-induced prolongation of the activated partial thromboplastin time, and both drugs were well tolerated when administered in combination. In conclusion, no pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic interaction between atorvastatin and ximelagatran was observed in this study.

Forty-five hypercholesterolemic patients with the first episode of an ACS were included in the study. Patients were randomized to receive daily either 10 mg of atorvastatin (n=21) or 40 mg of pravastatin (n=24). Thirty patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) received a loading dose of 375 mg of clopidogrel, followed by 75 mg/d for at least 3 months. In the remaining 15 patients who refused to undergo PCI, clopidogrel therapy was not administered. Eight normolipidemic patients with the first episode of an ACS were also included and received only clopidogrel. The serum levels of soluble CD40L and the adenosine 5'-diphosphate- or thrombin receptor activating peptide-14-induced platelet aggregation, as well as P-selectin and CD40L surface expression, were studied at baseline (within 30 minutes after admission) and 5 weeks later. Neither atorvastatin nor pravastatin significantly influenced the clopidogrel-induced inhibition of platelet activation, nor did clopidogrel influence the therapeutic efficacy of atorvastatin.

Although cholesterol embolism syndrome was recognized as a clinicopathologic entity more than 50 years ago, it is attracting growing attention recently. It is a multisystemic disorder in which cholesterol crystals released from atherosclerotic plaques obstruct small arterioles, resulting in local ischemia and end-organ damage. There are no established treatments, and with the limited treatment options available, it is important to make the diagnosis as early as possible. We present the case of a 68-year-old man with cholesterol embolism who had a few fluttering atheromas in the aorta, as demonstrated by transesophageal ultrasonography. The diagnosis was confirmed by skin biopsy, and treatment with statins and steroids proved effective, as renal failure progressively improved. This case emphasizes the importance of early diagnosis and shows the possible therapeutic effects of statins and steroids for patients with this syndrome.

Epidemiological research suggests that there is an inverse relationship between serum cholesterol level and the occurrence of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH). In the SPARCL (Stroke prevention by aggressive reduction in cholesterol levels) study in over 4000 patients who suffered stroke, ICH or TIA, the risk of ICH was found to be higher in the atorvastatin group than in the placebo group. In meta-analyses of large statin trials no increased risk of ICH was found, most likely as a consequence of a low absolute risk of ICH. Results of available studies indicate that the possibility that use of statins increases the risk of ICH cannot be excluded but that this is only of clinical relevance in patients with a history of ICH. Statins do not need to be terminated immediately in patients with ICH. At check-up following ICH, the decision to start or to continue statins should be made based on the risk to the patient of ischemic cardiovascular disease and the estimated risk of recurrent haemorrhage, depending on the type of haemorrhage.

Statins have antiproliferative and anti-tumoral effects in MCF-7 cells. We determined the effect of statins upon MCF-7 cell cycle, toxicity, cell death, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and mitochondrial membrane potential. Fluvastatin, simvastatin and atorvastatin inhibited cell proliferation. Antiproliferation was associated with a decrease in the DNA synthesis and a cell cycle arrest in the G1 and G2/M phases. A loss in the mitochondrial membrane potential was observed with fluvastatin. Statins induced increase in ROS production that was associated with cell death, which was abrogated by the antioxidant NAC. Our results suggest that the cytotoxic effect observed is mediated by buy lipitor an oxidative stress.

658 patients were included in a per protocol analysis. The 4 treatment groups had similar mean [SD] age (63.5 years [11.7]), HbA(1c) (6.9% [1.1]) and diabetes duration (median 4 years [inter-quartile range 2, 8]). Atorvastatin treatment alone reduced low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol by 1.4 mmol/l (44%, p<0.001), triglycerides by 0.3 mmol/l (20%, p<0.0001) and lanosterol by 0.36 μmol/l (72%, p<0.001). There was no significant placebo adjusted change in median [95% confidence intervals] total plant sterol concentrations (-0.77 μmol/l [inter-quartile range -2.13, 0 buy lipitor .59]), although they were increased significantly with omega-3-acid EE90 treatment (3.23 μmol/l [1.28, 5.17]). There was a 27% smaller reduction in LDL cholesterol with atorvastatin treatment in low cholesterol synthesisers with high absorption, defined by changes at or above the median lanosterol and campesterol levels, respectively, compared with the obverse group (difference 0.42 mmol/l [0.21, 0.62]).

Based on a previous study reporting an altered metabolic profile with increased systemic exposure to the suspected muscle-toxic metabolite atorvastatin lactone in patients with SIM compared with healthy controls, this study aimed to explore the use of atorvastatin metabolite measurements to diagnose muscular complaints during statin treatment as being either SIM or non-SIM. PATIENTS, SETTING, AND STUDY DESIGN: buy lipitor Fifty-three patients with self-reported myopathic symptoms during atorvastatin treatment were recruited from our outpatient clinic. The symptoms were clinically evaluated as being SIM or non-SIM, on the basis of atorvastatin re-challenge testing. Atorvastatin and its metabolites were measured at steady state in all patients and compared with the clinical evaluation to see if this could predict the outcome and hence be suitable as a diagnostic tool for SIM.

This 24-week, randomized, open-label multicenter study evaluated the efficacy and safety of atorvastatin compared with fenofibrate in the treatment of patients with combined hyperlipidemia (CHL). Following a 6-week baseline period, 84 patients with CHL were randomly assigned to either atorvastatin treatment, 10 mg QD for 12 weeks increasing to 20 mg QD for buy lipitor 12 weeks, or fenofibrate treatment, 100 mg TID for 24 weeks. Changes from baseline in lipid parameters were evaluated at weeks 12 and 24. At both 10- and 20-mg doses, atorvastatin treatment resulted in significantly greater reductions in LDL cholesterol, apolipoprotein (apo) B, total cholesterol, LDL-apoB, and lipoprotein-B compared to 300-mg fenofibrate treatment (P < .05). While atorvastatin also resulted in clinically significant reductions in triglyceride, VLDL cholesterol, apoB in VLDL, triglyceride in VLDL, and apoC-III and significant increases in HDL cholesterol and apoA-I levels, fenofibrate was more effective than atorvastatin in altering all these parameters. However, by significantly affecting both the cholesterol-rich and triglyceride-rich particles, atorvastatin holds promise as a lipid-regulator able to adequately treat a broad range of patients that includes those with CHL.

Statins may have nephroprotective as well as cardioprotective effects in patients with cardiovascular disease. In the Treating to New Targets (TNT) study (NCT00327691), patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) were randomized to atorvastatin 10 or 80 mg/day and followed for 4.9 years. The relation between intrastudy change in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) from baseline and the risk of major cardiovascular events (MCVEs, defined as CHD death, nonfatal non-procedure-related myocardial infarction, resuscitated cardiac arrest, or fatal or nonfatal stroke) was assessed among 9,500 patients stratified by renal function: improving (change in eGFR more than +2 ml/min/1.73 m(2)), stable (-2 to +2 ml/min/1.73 m(2)), and worsening ( Zocor Drug Category less than -2 ml/min/1.73 m(2)). Compared with patients with worsening renal function (1,479 patients, 15.6%), the rate of MCVEs was 28% lower in patients with stable renal function (2,241 patients, 23.6%) (hazard ratio [HR] 0.72; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.60 to 0.87; p = 0.0005) and 64% lower in patients with improving renal function (5,780 patients, 60.8%; HR 0.36; 95% CI 0.30 to 0.43; p <0.0001). For each 1 ml/min/1.73 m(2) increase in eGFR, the absolute reduction in the rate of MCVEs was 2.7% (HR 0.973; 95% CI 0.967 to 0.980; p <0.0001). An absolute MCVE rate reduction per 1 ml/min/1.73 m(2) increase in eGFR of 2.0% was reported with atorvastatin 10 mg and 3.3% with atorvastatin 80 mg. In conclusion, intrastudy stabilization or increase in eGFR in atorvastatin-treated patients with CHD from the TNT study was associated with a reduced rate of MCVEs. Statin-treated CHD patients with progressive renal impairment are at high risk for future cardiovascular events.

3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors are effective agents in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides and are being used by human immunodeficiency virus-positive patients to treat the lipid elevation that may be associated with antiretroviral therapy. Many HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors Aggrenox Generic Alternative and protease inhibitors are metabolized by the same cytochrome P450 enzyme 3A4 (CYP3A4). In addition, many protease inhibitors are potent inhibitors of CYP3A4. Therefore, coadministration of these two classes of drugs may cause significant drug interactions. This open-label, multiple-dose study was performed to determine the interactions between nelfinavir, a protease inhibitor, and two HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, atorvastatin and simvastatin, in healthy volunteers. Thirty-two healthy subjects received either atorvastatin calcium (10 mg once a day) or simvastatin (20 mg once a day) for the first 14 days of the study. Nelfinavir (1,250 mg twice a day) was added on days 15 to 28. Pharmacokinetic assessment was performed on days 14 and 28. The study drugs were well tolerated. Nelfinavir increased the steady-state area under the plasma concentration-time curve during one dosing period (AUC(tau)) of atorvastatin 74% and the maximum concentration (C(max)) of atorvastatin 122% and increased the AUC(tau) of simvastatin 505% and the C(max) of simvastatin 517%. Neither atorvastatin nor simvastatin appeared to alter the pharmacokinetics of nelfinavir. It is recommended that coadministration of simvastatin with nelfinavir should be avoided, whereas atorvastatin should be used with nelfinavir with caution.

In the base-case analysis, rosuvastatin dominated atorvastatin, pravastatin, and simvastatin. Generic lovastatin dominated fluvastatin. The incremental (absolute) reduction in LDL-C, increase in HDL-C, and Augmentin Pediatric Dose increase in patients to goal with rosuvastatin compared with lovastatin were 16%, 3%, and 27%, respectively. Incremental costs per additional 1% reduction in LDL-C, 1% increase in HDL-C, and patient to goal with rosuvastatin versus lovastatin were $8, $41, and $436, respectively. A wide variety of assumptions were assessed and Monte Carlo sensitivity analyses were conducted. Findings were most sensitive to the cost of lovastatin.

We investigated the effects of atorvastatin on the lipid and the apoA-I-containing HDL subpopulation profiles in 86 patients with established coronary heart disease (CHD). The entire drug treatment period lasted 12 weeks (4-week periods of 20 then 40, then 80 mg/day). Each dose of atorvastatin treatment resulted in significant reductions in plasma total-C, LDL-C, and triglyceride (TG), and non-significant increases in HDL-C levels compared with placebo treatment. ApoA-I levels did not change significantly during any of the treatment periods. Despite the modest increase of HDL-C (6%, 7%, 5%) and no change in apoA-I levels, the distribution of the apoA-I-containing HDL subpopulations changed significantly during each treatment period. There were significant increases in the concentrations of the large LpA-I alpha-1 (24%, 39%, 26%) and pre alpha-1 (51%, 61%, 63%) subpopulations at the expense of the small lipoprotein LpA-I:A-II alpha-3 subpopulations which decreased on all doses, and the decreases were significant on the 40 and 80 mg/day doses (6%, 5%). Atorvastatin influences the lipid-related risk for CHD in two ways: first, it significantly decreases LDL-C and TG levels while increasing HDL-C, and second, it significantly shifts the HDL subpopulation profile of CHD patients toward that observed in subjects without CHD.

Inhibitors of 3-hydroxy-3methylglutaryl-co-enzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase, so-called statins, are used in medical practice because of their lipid-lowering effect and to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Recent findings indicate that statins also have anti-inflammatory properties and can modulate the immune response. In vitro, we investigated the effect of atorvastatin on the T cell/macrophage system in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and in the human monocytic cell lines THP-1 and MonoMac6. We monitored neopterin production and tryptophan degradation in PBMC after treatment with 10 micro m and 100 micro m atorvastatin in the presence or absence of 100 U/ml IFN-gamma, 10 micro g/ml phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) or 10 micro g/ml concanavalin A (ConA) and in monocytic cell lines THP-1 and MonoMac6 with or without stimulation with 100 U/ml IFN-gamma or 10 ng/ml to 1 micro g/ml lipopolysaccharide (LPS). In stimulated PBMC 100 micro m atorvastatin inhibited neopterin formation and tryptophan degradation completely, whereas 10 micro m atorvastatin was only partially effective. Also in monocytic cell lines THP-1 and MonoMac6, atorvastatin was able to suppress IFN-gamma- and LPS-induced formation of neopterin and degradation of tryptophan. Our data from PBMC agree well with previous investigations that statins inhibit T cell activation within the cellular immune response. In addition we demonstrate that atorvastatin directly inhibits IFN-gamma-mediated pathways in monocytic cells, suggesting that both immunoreactivity of T cells and of monocyte-derived macrophages are down-regulated by this statin.

Many studies have documented P2X7 receptor functions in cells of mesenchymal origin. P2X7 is also expressed in epithelial cells and its role in these cells remains largely unknown. Our data indicate that P2X7 regulate nuclear pAkt in epithelial cells. We show that low concentration of atorvastatin, a drug inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase and cholesterol metabolism, or the natural agonist extracellular ATP rapidly decreased the level of insulin-induced phosphorylated Akt in the nucleus. This effect was seen within minutes and was inhibited by P2X7 inhibitors. Experiments employing P2X7 siRNA and HEK293 cells heterologously expressing P2X7 and in vivo experiments further supported an involvement of P2X7. These data indicate that extracellular ATP and statins via the P2X7 receptor modulate insulin-induced Akt signaling in epithelial cells.
