The purpose of this study is to investigate whether rosuvastatin decreases measures of inflammation in depressive patients.
Depression is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease, in which one possible mechanism is systemic inflammation. Further, patients at high risk of cardiovascular disease, rosuvastatin decreases the risk, especially among patients with increased inflammation. This is a proof-of-concept study to investigate whether the antiinflammatory effect of rosuvastatin is similar in depressive as in patients with cardiovascular disease.

Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.
