In patients with ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) increased LDL-cholesterol reduction (rosuvastatin 40 mg) will provide incremental plaque stabilization (changes in plaque composition) and plaque regression over 12 months beyond the benefit of moderate LDL-cholesterol reduction (rosuvastatin 5 mg) (assessed by IVUS and VH).

This is a 3-month, randomized, parallel-group study with 2 periods, comparing the efficacy and the safety of rosuvastatin 20 mg versus atorvastatin 80 mg in patients with an acute coronary...
The purpose of this study is to determine effects of combination therapy with rosuvastatin and fenofibrate on atheromatous plaques and its tissue characteristics of de novo coronary lesion...
This is a Randomized, open-label, 2 groups, parallel design.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment with 40mg of Rosuvastatin for 8 weeks will reduce the number of episodes of myocardial ischaemia suffered in subjects with coron...
The purpose of this study is to compare 6 weeks of treatment with rosuvastatin alone compared with 6 weeks of treatment of rosuvastatin combined with ezetimibe in achieving low density lip...
It was recently reported that the C and AUC of rosuvastatin increases when it is coadministered with telmisartan and cyclosporine. Rosuvastatin is known to be a substrate of OATP1B1, OATP1B3, NTCP, an...
Previous pharmacokinetic characterization of a transporter probe cocktail containing digoxin (P-gp), furosemide (OAT1, OAT3), metformin (OCT2, MATE1, MATE2-K) and rosuvastatin (OATP1B1, OATP1B3, BCRP)...
Metabolic syndrome in patients with schizophrenia is a major health concern. The efficacy and safety of adjunctive rosuvastatin in treating dyslipidemia were controversial.
Rosuvastatin is a statin used to treat metabolic syndrome conditions, such as hyperlipidemia. It is relatively safe; however, fatal rhabdomyolysis or skeletal myopathy can sometimes occur. Therefore, ...
Intestinal microflora has been shown to play essential roles in the clinical therapies of metabolic diseases. The present study is aiming to investigate the potential roles and mechanisms of how intes...
A HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA-REDUCTASE INHIBITOR, or statin, that reduces the plasma concentrations of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B, and TRIGLYCERIDES while increasing HDL-CHOLESTEROL levels in patients with HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and those at risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Cholesterol is a waxy steroid metabolite found in the cell membranes and transported in the blood plasma. It is an important structural component of mammalian cell membranes, where it is establishes proper membrane permeability and fluidity. Cholesterol ...
