This article explores the effects of atorvastatin on cultured breast cancer cells. Our experiment demonstrated that atorvastatin triggered autophagy and inhibited proliferation in breast cancer cells. A CCK8 assay indicated that atorvastatin can inhibit the activity of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. Western blotting results showed that atorvastatin increased the conversion of light chain 3 (LC3)-I to LC3-phosphatidylethanolamine conjugate (LC3-II). Confocal microscopy was used to reveal the appearance of a...
The interaction of atorvastatin with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) was investigated in vitro under simulated physiological conditions by using absorption and emission spectroscopy, viscosity measurements, gel electrophoresis and molecular docking studies. Analysis of UV-vis absorbance spectra indicates the formation of complex between atorvastatin and CT-DNA, and obtained binding constant (K = 8.2×10 L. mol) is comparable to groove binder drugs. Slight increase of viscosity of CT-DNA demonstrated the groo...
In the present study, we investigated the hypolipidemic and hepatoprotective potential of the commercially available crushed Ajwa date seed-extract on the toxicity caused by the atorvastatin in high-fat diet (HFD)-induced hyperlipidemic rats. Male albino rats were divided into two main groups, Group I (normal control) and Group II (HFD); Group II was further divided into four subgroups: Group IIa (HFD control), Group IIb (Atorvastatin: A10)-6 rats were administered with 10 mg/kg atorvastatin daily for 30 ...
Statins mediate vascular protection and reduce the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. Recent work indicates that statins have anticonvulsive effects in the brain; however, little is known about the precise mechanism for its protective effect in kainic acid (KA)-induced seizures. Here, we investigated the protective effects of atorvastatin pretreatment on KA-induced neuroinflammation and hippocampal cell death. Mice were treated via intragastric administration of atorvastatin for 7 days, injected with KA...
Hyperlipidemia is a risk factor for various cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. And it is tightly related to chronic inflammation. Interleukin-38 (IL-38) represents a new member of anti-inflammatory cytokines. Thus we studied the important role of IL-38 in hyperlipidemia development and treatment.
Emphysema results in a proteinase - antiproteinase imbalance, inflammation and oxidative stress. Our objective was to investigate whether atorvastatin could repair mouse lungs after elastase-induced emphysema. Vehicle (50 μL) or porcine pancreatic elastase (PPE) was administered on day 1, 3, 5 and 7 at 0.6 U intranasally. Male mice were divided into a control group (sham), PPE 32d (sacrificed 24 h after 32 days), PPE 64d (sacrificed 24 h after 64 days), and atorvastatin 1, 5 and 20 mg treated fro...
We tested whether intervention with atorvastatin affects the prostate beneficially compared with placebo in men with prostate cancer in a randomized clinical trial. A total of 160 statin-naïve prostate cancer patients scheduled for radical prostatectomy were randomized to use 80mg atorvastatin or placebo daily from recruitment to surgery for a median of 27 d. Blinding was maintained throughout the trial. In total, 158 men completed the follow-up, with 96% compliance. Overall, atorvastatin did not significa...
Low‑density lipoprotein receptors (LDLRs) may serve a role in the diabetogenic effect of statins; however, the effects of statins on LDLR expression and its regulation in the pancreas and islets have yet to be determined. To exclude the long‑term effects of treatment with atorvastatin, which allows mice to adapt, male C57BL/j and apolipoprotein E‑deficient mice were acutely treated with oral atorvastatin for 6 weeks, and glucose homeostasis and LDLR expression in the pancreas and islets were examined...
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of pitavastatin and atorvastatin using data from randomized-controlled trial pooled together by means of a meta-analysis and decide which is better.
The aim of this study was to assess impact of atorvastain and simvastatin on myocardial contractility during the different degree of Hhcy in rats. Study was conducted on adult male Wistar albino rats (n=96; 4 weeks old; 100±15g body mass) in which HHcy was achieved by dietary manipulation. Animals were exposed to pharmacology treatment with atorvastatin in dose of 3 mg/kg/day i.p or simvastatin in dose of 5 mg/kg/day i.p in same time every day, according to equivalent therapeutic doses of these statins (10...
Vascular endothelial protein tyrosine phosphatase (VE-PTP) is essential for endothelial cells (ECs) adherens junction and vascular homeostasis; however, the regulatory mechanism of VE-PTP transcription is unknown, and a drug able to promote VE-PTP expression in ECs has not yet been reported in the literature. In this study, we used human ECs as a model to explore small molecule compounds able to promote VE-PTP expression, and found that atorvastatin, a HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor widely used in the clinic t...
To investigate the effects of atorvastatin on the surgical treatment of patients with chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH).
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the ability of ischemic postconditioning, atorvastatin and both associated to prevent or minimize reperfusion injury in the lung of rats subjected to ischemia and reperfusion by abdominal aortic clamping.
Many clinical and experimental studies have shown that treatment with statins could prevent myocardial hypertrophy and remodeling induced by hypertension and myocardial infarction. But the molecular mechanism was not clear. We aimed to investigate the beneficial effects of atorvastatin on hypertension-induced myocardial hypertrophy and remodeling in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) with the hope of revealing other potential mechanisms or target pathways to interpret the pleiotropic effects of atorvasta...
A debate is open on the effects of lipid-lowering drugs on sexual function. We aimed to investigate the effect of atorvastatin use on penile intracavernosal pressure (ICP) and cavernosal morphology.
To evaluate the prophylactic effects of atorvastatin on frequency, intensity, and duration of migraine attacks compared with sodium valproate.
Assessment of the MRI and Behavioral Test Results in a Focal Cerebral Ischemia-Reperfusion Model in the Rat after Separate and Combined Use of Mouse-Derived Neural Progenitor Cells, Human-Derived Neural Progenitor Cells and Atorvastatin.
To assess the efficacy of Neural progenitor cell (NPC) transplantation in ischemic stroke, and to investigate whether atorvastatin enhances therapeutic potency of NPC after stroke.
Serum troponin within the normal range is an emerging predictor of cardiovascular mortality. We aimed to determine how rapidly high-sensitivity troponin -I (hs-cTnI) levels are lowered by statin therapy in patients with stable cardiovascular disease. In the RADAR substudy, patients were randomized, to atorvastatin 20 mg/day (n = 39) or rosuvastatin 10 mg/day (n = 39) and up-titrated in 6 week intervals to 80 mg of atorvastatin or 40 mg of rosuvastatin. Hs-cTnI concentrations were measured at baseline and at...
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a key role in the development of endothelial dysfunction. However, few lncRNAs associated with endothelial dysfunction after atorvastatin administration have been reported.
Accelerated atherosclerosis in patients suffering from diabetes represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The aim of present study was to investigate the protective effects conferred by atorvastatin (AVT) meditated by the HMGCR gene in diabetic rats with atherosclerosis.
The use of statins as a potential cancer drug has been investigated; however the molecular mechanisms involved in their anti-oxidant, anti-proliferative and anti-cancer effects remain elusive. In our study, we investigated the involvement of downstream mevalonate products that mediate the anti-oxidant and anti-proliferative effects of Atorvastatin (Ato), and its effect on microRNA-145 expression in HepG2 hepatocellular carcinoma cells. An amorphous soluble form of Ato was prepared and found to be cytotoxic ...

Research on the biologic activities of HDL, such as cholesterol efflux capacity and HDL composition, has allowed the understanding of the effect of interventions directed to improve cardiovascular risk. Previously, statin therapy has shown conflicting results about its effects on cholesterol efflux capacity of HDL; the underlying mechanisms are unclear but studies with positive effects are associated with an increase of HDL-cholesterol levels. We investigated if 10 weeks of atorvastatin therapy changes HDL ...
The purpose of this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study was to investigate the preventive effect of topical administration of atorvastatin (ATV) on the acute radiation-induced skin toxicity in patients with breast cancer.
