The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of switching to a combination tablet ezetimibe/simvastatin (10mg/20mg) vs rosuvastatin (10 mg) vs doubling the statin dose in those patients who have cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus not adequately controlled on simvastatin 20 mg or atorvastatin 10 mg.
Diabetes is associated with dyslipidaemia leading to generalized atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and nephropathy. Osteoprotegerin (OPG), a glycoprotein involved in bone homeostasis, has been implicated in the pathogenesis leading up vessel calcification. Furthermore, CVD in diabetics is associated with increased levels of OPG. Aim: To investigate whether low dose simvastatin treatment (10-20 mg/day) reduces circulating levels of OPG as well as adhesion molecules ...
This is a randomized, open label, parallel group comparison study. Following a 1-week screening period, patients will be randomized to 1 of 2 treatment groups: ezetimibe added to ongoing statin treatment (ezetimibe plus simvastatin, atorvastatin or pravastatin at doses of 10/20, 10/10 or 10/20 mg), or doubling the dose of ongoing statin (simvastatin 40 mg, atorvastatin 20 mg, or pravastatin 40 mg). Study drug will be administered once daily in the evening for 8 weeks. Patients ...
This study will assess the potential pharmacokinetic interaction between GK Activator (2) and simvastatin, and the potential effect of simvastatin on the glucose-lowering effect of GK Activator (2) in patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients will be randomized to one of 6 treatment sequences to receive single doses of a)GK Activator (2) 100mg po, b)simvastatin 80mg po and c)GK Activator (2) 100mg + simvastatin 80mg po. Dosing will take place on study days 1, 8 and 15, and there ...
The objective is to assess the efficacy and safety of oral simvastatin in patients with a suspicion of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). The hypothesis of this study is that simvastatin therapy will improve mortality in patients a suspicion of VAP.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether, in patients with chronic proteinuric nephropathy and dyslipidemia, ezetimibe-simvastatin combined therapy is more effective than statin alone to achieve the optimum lipid control, and if this translates to an improvement of the markers of vascular damage. Thirty hypertensive patients in stable therapy with RAS inhibitors, with low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol superior to 100 mg/ml, are treated with three different hypo...
HMG CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) are commonly used to treat high cholesterol (HC) in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Several studies have shown benefits of statin among patients of type 2 DM, however, no such data is available for patients with type 1 DM. It is known from studies on cholesterol metabolism using surrogate markers that patients with type 1 DM have higher cholesterol absorption compared to normals and those with type 2 DM have higher choleste...
This is a phase IV, randomized, open-label, parallel-arm, comparative and forced- titration study to compare the efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin versus simvastatin in patients with type 2 DM and dyslipidemia. When comparing the efficacy of rosuvastatin 20 mg with simvastatin 40 mg for the treatment of type 2 DM with dyslipidemia, rosuvastatin 20 mg is superior to simvastatin 40 mg in achieving the combined goal of LDL-C (
In patients with coronary artery disease and a LDL-C level between 2.5 mmol/L and 5.0 mmol/L on a stable (> 4 weeks) statin starting dose (simvastatin 20 mg or atorvastatin 10 mg), investigate what the LCL-C lowering efficacy is of doubling the statin dose (to 40 mg simvastatin or 20 mg atorvastatin) versus a combination tablet of ezetimibe 10 mg plus simvastatin 20 mg once daily for 12 weeks. It is postulated that more patients reach their LDL-C treatment goal with the combin...
To investigate the effect of multiple doses of SLV337 on the pharmacokinetics of simvastatin and simvastatin acid when co-administered in healthy male subjects
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 effective than treatment with doubling the dose of simvastatin to 40 mg alone in reducing low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) concentrations and in achieving the National Cholesterol Expert Panel (NCEP) III LDL-C target goal of
The purpose of this study is to investigate the mechanism of statin-related myopathy by evaluating muscle samples before and after statin exposure.
Type I diabetes (T1DM) is associated with an increased risk of vascular complications. While the precise mechanism(s) by which diabetes accelerates atherosclerosis has not been elucidated, several lines of evidence point to the role of increased inflammation in the pathogenesis of these vasculopathies. The monocyte-macrophage is a pivotal cell in atherogenesis and is readily accessible for study. However, there is scanty data on monocyte function and inflammation in T1DM. Simva...
Background- Statins are a safe and effective therapy to reduce cardiovascular risk in patients with type 2 diabetes; however some patients are not prescribed statins, others do not take it even after being prescribed, and others stop therapy prematurely. Lack of knowledge or misinformation about statins may be responsible for inadequate statin use. Objective- To test the hypothesis that a formal, structured decision aid could correct deficiencies in the current decision-makin...
The purpose of the study is to establish the safety of Zocor and Vytorin in adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes and to determine the amount of decrease in LDL-cholesterol.The study hypothesizes that Zocor and Vytorin will be safe in adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes and will lower LDL-cholesterol at 6 months.
In South Asian Canadians with documented coronary artery disease or diabetes and hypercholesterolemia with LDL-C levels > 2.0 mmol/L after 4 weeks of monotherapy with any statin: To compare the percent (%) of patients who achieve an LDL-C concentration of 2.0mmol/L after a 6-week course of treatment with ezetimibe 10 mg/day co-administered with any statin at any dose versus doubling of the current statin dose.
Type 2 diabetes (T2D), because of impaired glucose regulation and consequent hyperglycemia, promotes the development of coronary heart disease. Secondary dyslipidemia is often associated with T2D and enhances the risk of cardiovascular complications. HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) are selectively administrated for the treatment of dyslipidemia, leading to a significant reduction of cardiovascular risk. More recently, revisions to guidelines have established a lower ther...
A Study of the Efficacy and Safety of MK-0431D (a Fixed-dose Combination of Sitagliptin and Simvastatin) for the Treatment of Participants With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) With Inadequate Glycemic Control on Metformin Monotherapy (MK-0431D-266)
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of sitagliptin/simvastatin fixed-dose combination (FDC) in participants with T2DM who have inadequate glycemic control while on metformin monotherapy. The primary hypothesis of this study is that after 16 weeks of therapy, the mean change from baseline in hemoglobin A1C (A1C) in participants treated with sitagliptin/simvastatin FDC is non-inferior compared to sitagliptin alone.
Our proposed research will examine whether treatment with simvastatin alters expression and activity of monocyte TF, whether polymorphisms in the TF gene alter the therapeutic effect and what effect treatment has on inflammatory markers in heart failure. The results of this study may assist in tailoring statin therapy to specific characteristics, such as inflammatory state, of heart failure patients. If treatment with simvastatin significantly lowers TF expression, this may red...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the potential interaction between SP2086 and Simvastatin after the multiple oral doses treatment in healthy adult volunteers.
the purpose of thr study is to investigate the potential interation between multiple oral doses of SHR3824 and single oral dose of Simvastatin in healthy adult volunteers.
The primary study hypothesis of this study is to determine whether there is a greater percentage of patients achieving a triglyceride level of
Early statin therapy in SLE patients that have high cholesterol level and other atherosclerosis risk should reduce atherosclerosis and coronary artery events in later course of disease. By the way, statin is used in restricted groups of rheumatologists due to awareness of side effects; myositis and hepatitis, that are frequently found in SLE patients more so than other groups of atherosclerosis patients and reporting data of autoimmune diseases that occur after statin use.
Statins are drugs representing the most commonly prescribed medication for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. In a recently published study, discontinuation of statin therapy in patients after acute myocardial infarction was associated with a higher all-cause mortality (hazard ratio 3,45) and a higher cardiac mortality (hazard ratio 4,65). Increasing evidence suggests that statins also have vasoactive properties by up-regulating endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) with...
Statins (such as simvastatin or Zocor) are the most effective and widely prescribed medications to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the frequency of heart attacks, cardiac deaths and strokes. Unfortunately, statins can cause muscle discomfort or pain called "myalgia" in patients treated with these drugs. These symptoms often cause patients who need these medications to stop taking the drug. The cause of statin muscle pain is not known, but it is thought that a reduction o...
