This is a multicenter, randomized, double blind; active-controlled parallel groups study enrolling subjects with primary hypercholesterolemia. Subjects receive ezetimibe, simvastatin, or ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether coadministration of ezetimibe 10 mg/day with simvastatin 20 mg/day for 12 weeks will result in greater reduction of LDL-C, total cholestero...
This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will assess, after 6 weeks of dosing, whether co-administration of ezetimibe 10 mg with simvastatin 20 mg will be more ...
This is a randomized, double-blind, controlled, parallel-group, multicenter, Phase-3 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ezetimibe with simvastatin taken alone in subjects ages 10...
Both simvastatin 40 mg and simvastatin/ezetimibe 10/10 mg result in LDL-C reductions of approximately the same magnitude. However, the differential effects of these two treatment options o...
Soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) is an inflammatory marker associated with cardiovascular disease. Statins lower both low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol and C-reactive p...
Background Simvastatin is a widely used drug for dyslipidemia treatment, and the best therapeutic effects are achieved at night time. Simvastatin administration has been associated with the developmen...
Simvastatin is poorly bioavailable because it is practically insoluble in water and shows dissolution rate-limited absorption. Solubilizing effects of several β-cyclodextrin (βCD) derivatives such a...
Genetic polymorphisms may play a role in muscular injury associated with simvastatin, but results were inconclusive. This study aimed to summarize evidence from the literature investigating the effect...
Simvastatin may be beneficial for treating sepsis due to its immune-regulating properties, although the mechanisms remain elusive. Herein, we hypothesized simvastatin may attenuate T cell dysfunction ...
A pharmaceutical preparation of ezetimibe and simvastatin that is used in the treatment of HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.
An azetidine derivative and ANTICHOLESTEREMIC AGENT that inhibits intestinal STEROL absorption. It is used to reduce total CHOLESTEROL; LDL CHOLESTEROL, and APOLIPOPROTEINS B in the treatment of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.
A derivative of LOVASTATIN and potent competitive inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL COA REDUCTASES), which is the rate-limiting enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis. It may also interfere with steroid hormone production. Due to the induction of hepatic LDL RECEPTORS, it increases breakdown of LDL CHOLESTEROL.
An allylamine derivative that binds BILE ACIDS in the intestine and is used as an ANTICHOLESTEREMIC AGENT in the treatment of HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.
A condition with abnormally high levels of CHOLESTEROL in the blood. It is defined as a cholesterol value exceeding the 95th percentile for the population.
