lipitor reviews 2015

Time being sedentary increased and physical activity levels decreased in the total sample over 6 months of drug treatment, independent of group assignment. Our results suggest that statins do not influence physical activity levels any differently from placebo, and the lack of inclusion of a placebo condition may provide insight into inconsistencies in the literature.

lipitor reviews patients

The ASCOT-LLA and ALLHAT-LLT trials provide conflicting evidence of the efficacy of statins in decreasing cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality in hypertensive patients. We performed a meta-analysis to compare the overall efficacy of statins in hypertensive and nonhypertensive patients enrolled in major randomized clinical trials. We systematically reviewed PubMed publications from 1985 onward for placebo-controlled randomized trials that examined the effect of statins on cardiac morbidity and mortality. Only trials that followed >or=1,000 patients for >or=2 years were included in the meta-analysis. Outcomes included cardiac or CV death, major coronary events, or major CV events. Pooled estimates of relative risk (RR) were calculated separately for hypertensive and nonhypertensive patients. The moderating effect of the percentage of hypertensive patients at baseline was tested using meta-regression. Besides the ASCOT-LLA and ALLHAT-LLT, 12 trials enrolling 69,984 patients met inclusion criteria. Overall, in these 12 trials, statin therapy decreased cardiac death by 24% (RR 0.76, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.71 to 0.82). There was no evidence of difference in RR estimates for hypertensive (RR 0.78, 95% CI 0.72 to 0.84) and nonhypertensive (RR 0.76, 95% CI 0.72 to 0.80) patients. Similarly, meta-regression showed that the efficacy of statins was not moderated by the percentage of hypertensive patients at baseline (Q estimate 1.51, p=0.22). In conclusion, statin therapy effectively decreases CV morbidity and mortality to the same extent in hypertensive and nonhypertensive patients.

The aim of the present study was to develop a chromatographic method for the analysis of atorvastatin, o- and p-hydroxyatorvastatin (acid and lactone forms) in human plasma after administration of atorvastatin at the lowest registered dose (10 mg) in clinical studies. Sample preparation was performed by solid-phase extraction and was followed by separation of the analytes on an HPLC system with a linear gradient and a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile, water and formic acid. Detection was achieved by tandem mass spectrometry operated in the electrospray positive ion mode. Validation of the method for the compounds for which reference compounds were available (acid forms of atorvastatin, o- and p-hydroxyatorvastatin) showed linearity within the concentration range (0.2-30 ng/ml for atorvastatin acid and p-hydroxyatorvastatin acid, and 0.5-30 ng/ml for o-hydroxyatorvastatin acid) (r2 > or = 0.99, n = 5 for all analytes). Accuracy and precision (evaluated at 0.5, 3 and 30 ng/ml for atorvastatin, p-hydroxyatorvastatin and 1, 3 and 30 ng/ml for o-hydroxyatorvastatin) were both satisfactory. The detection limit was 0.06 ng/ml for atorvastatin and p-hydroxyatorvastatin, and 0.15 ng/ml for o-hydroxyatorvastatin. The method has been successfully applied in a clinical study where atorvastatin, o- and p-hydroxyatorvastatin (both acid and lactone forms) could be detected in a 24-h sampling interval after administration of the lowest registered dose of atorvastatin (10 mg) for one week.

Sexually selected traits like complex vocalizations or vibrant colors communicate reliable information about mate quality when they are costly to display. Although several general condition-dependent mechanisms underlying the acquisition of mating advertisements have been identified, we rarely know the precise physiological and molecular challenges that animals must meet to develop their sexual ornaments. The flashy pigment-based colors commonly displayed by birds are ideal candidates for investigating the pathways and demands of sexual-signal expression, because we know the biochemical currency with which the trait is produced. Carotenoid colors in birds, for example, are derived from pigments that are acquired from the diet and assimilated into feathers and bare parts. In previous work, we showed that variation in the sexually attractive red carotenoid-colored beak of male zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) was predicted not by the amount of food or pigments ingested, but by the levels of carotenoids that birds circulated in blood. Here we elucidate a novel physiological mechanism by which birds are able to accumulate high levels of carotenoids in the body and develop a colorful bill. Carotenoids are transported through the bloodstream bound to lipoproteins. We assayed a critical component of lipoprotein particles-cholesterol-and found that males with higher cholesterol levels circulated more carotenoids and displayed redder beaks. Experimental supplementation of dietary cholesterol elevated carotenoid levels in the blood and beak hue. Experimental reductions in blood cholesterol, using the human lipid-lowering agent atorvastatin, diminished blood carotenoids and faded the beak; carotenoid and cholesterol levels were restored, however, by subsequent addition of dietary cholesterol. These results suggest that the production of circulating lipoproteins critically regulates the development of a colorful sexually selected trait in zebra finches.

In the atorvastatin group, myocardial cells were lined up more orderly and myocardial fibrosis level was decreased compared to the model group. The expressions of GRP78, caspase-12 and CHOP in myocardial cells were decreased in atorvastatin group. Moreover, in the atorvastatin-treated group the cell apoptosis rate was reduced and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress was activated in response to heart failure and angiotensin II (Ang II) stimulation.

First-degree relatives of patients with premature CAD have an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), whereas events are poorly predicted in these individuals. Surrogate markers, such as CCS, might refine risk scoring. Nevertheless, the outcome of the St. Francis Heart trial, which investigated the effect of atorvastatin 20 mg/day in asymptomatic individuals with CCS above the 80th percentile, did not reach statistical significance.

lipitor 50 mg

For the period of twelve months 46 patients with primary HLP (group S) (LDL-C > 4.1 mmol/l a TG < 3.5 mmol/l), were treated with atorvastatine 20 mg or simvastatine 40 mg. Patients with LDL-C > 4.1 mmol/l along with TG > 3.5 mmol/l were randomly divided into two groups. The SF group was treated with a combination of statin + 200 mg micronized fenofibrate each day, and group SR received together with statin a compound containing n-3 polyene fatty acids (PUFA n-3) in the daily dose of 3.6 g. After one year lasting therapy we found beside the positively influenced concentration of atherogenic lipids and lipoproteins in the group S and SF a significantly reduced concentration of conjugated dienes (CD) in LDL ( -21, resp. 16%, both P < 0.05); the test of KD kinetics in LDL in the group S has marginal increase of the lag phase (P = 0.06) and in the groups S and SR also a significant improvement of ED (increase by the flow of mediated vasodilation, FMD) by 20%, resp. by 18% (both P < 0.05) and in the SR group a significant decrease of microalbuminuria. We did not proved significant concentrations of insulin, C-peptide or indexes showing the degree of IR (HOMA and QUICKI) CONCLUSIONS: Long-lasting hypolipidemic treatment positively affected in our study the oxidative stress and ED, however, it did not resulted in changes of IR.

Because of well established outcome measures, the lipid-lowering drugs Pravastatin and Atorvastatin (serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C) and the anti-glaucoma drugs Timolol and Latanoprost (intraocular pressure, IOP) were chosen for this investigation. Studies were identified by a standardized MEDLINE search. RCTs investigating the above identified medications administered as monotherapy, and in defined dosages, were included. Publication year, baseline (= pre-treatment value in the treatment group of interest) and post intervention means, number of patients and the assignment to experimental or control group were extracted for each study.

A 44-year-old male patient with a single vessel ischaemic heart disease was referred to the lipid clinic for management of hypercholesterolaemia after an episode of admission with thrombocytopenic purpura secondary to atorvastatin. Atorvastatin was discontinued and his platelet counts improved gradually with steroids. He is now established on a different statin with no further episodes of thrombocytopenia. Though a drug challenge was never done, an idiosyncratic reaction to the initial statin seems to be the most likely cause.

ASCOT compared the effect of atenolol combined with a thiazide versus amlodipine with perindopril in hypertensive patients. It also studied the effect of atorvastatin in those with normal cholesterol. ASCOT concluded that reductions in cardiovascular events with atorvastatin were significant, and that amlodipine-based treatment prevented more cardiovascular events. The latter seemed to be due to better control of central blood pressure. Both statin and amlodipine-based treatments were cost-effective. According to the ASCOT study, it does matter how blood pressure is lowered.

lipitor drug interactions

Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in vascular repair and maintenance of vascular homeostasis through re-endothelialization and neovascularization. Cardiovascular risk factors that contribute to coronary artery disease (CAD) have been shown to negatively impact EPCs, although the mechanisms are poorly understood. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) which negatively regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level have been shown to impact endothelial cell (EC) angiogenic actions, but little is known about their role in modulating EPC function. In this study we first investigated if EPCs expressed EC specific, angiogenesis-related miRNAs; then determined whether the expression of these miRNAs was altered in EPCs from CAD patients as compared with healthy controls. Furthermore, we examined if atorvastatin, known to increase circulating EPC numbers, had any effect on EPC miRNA expression. We found EPCs produced miR-126, miR-130a, miR-221, miR-222 and miR-92a which have thus far been identified as the most important angiogenic miRNAs. Dysregulation of these miRNAs was detected in EPCs from CAD patients and atorvastatin treatment selectively impacted miRNA expression in EPCs. Our data provide evidence that angiogenic miRNAs might play an important role in the control of EPC function, and that their dysregulation might contribute to EPC dysfunction in patients suffering from coronary artery disease. These findings might lead to the development of novel therapeutic modalities for the prevention and treatment of CAD.

atorvastatin lipitor reviews

Statins have been reported to affect blood vessel formation. Thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) is a multifunctional protein that affects vasculature systems such as platelet activation, angiogenesis, and wound healing. This study was designed to investigate the effect of atorvastatin on TSP-1 synthesis in thrombin-stimulated human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), and its regulation by mevalonate or its derivatives. The results showed that atorvastatin down-regulated TSP-1 expression in HUVECs. This effect was fully reversed by mevalonate, farnesylpyrophosphate (FPP), and gerarylgeranylpyrophosphate (GGPP). Furthermore, farnesyltransferase and geranylgeranyltransferase inhibitors decreased TSP-1expression. It was also found that thrombin increased TSP-1 expression in HUVECs. Atorvastatin (0.1, 1, and 10 muM) decreased TSP-1 in thrombin-stimulated cells (45%, 66%, and 80%). Mevalonate partially reversed this inhibitory effect of atorvastatin on TSP-1, whereas the presence of FPP and GGPP did not alter TSP-1. Rho-kinase inhibitor neutralized the up-regulation of TSP-1 induced by thrombin. In conclusion, atorvastatin inhibits TSP-1 expression in endothelial cells via the mevalonate pathway. Rho protein activation is necessary for up-regulation of TSP-1 synthesis induced by thrombin. Because FPP and GGPP are essential for the activity of Rho proteins, inhibition of these proteins may constitute the mechanism by which atorvastatin inhibits thrombin up-regulated TSP-1 expression.

On average, AUC(0-12) [area under the whole blood concentration versus time curve in the dosing interval (0-12 h)] of cyclosporine was 5% (-16, buy lipitor online 5) (90% confidence interval) lower upon co-administration with atorvastatin. No statistically significant changes in any of the calculated pharmacokinetic variables [AUC(0-12), maximum whole blood concentration (C(max)), whole blood concentration 12 h post dose (C(12)), time to C(max) (t(max)), terminal half-life (t(1/2))] for cyclosporine or the two metabolites, AM1 and AM9, upon atorvastatin treatment were observed. On average, atorvastatin did not affect the ratio between the CYP3A4-mediated metabolite AM9 and cyclosporine, suggesting that atorvastatin does not affect the CYP3A4 metabolism of cyclosporine to any significant extent. However, the influence of atorvastatin on the ratio between AM9 and cyclosporine showed large interindividual variability.

We investigated whether atorvastatin has beneficial hemodynamic effects during acute pulmonary thromboembolism (APT) and whether sildenafil improves these effects. We studied the involvement of oxidative stress, matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), and neutrophil activation. APT was induced with autologous blood clots (500 mg/kg) in anesthetized male lambs pretreated with atorvastatin (10 mg/kg/day, subcutaneously; 1 week) or vehicle (dimethyl sulfoxide 10% subcutaneously). Sildenafil (0.7 mg/kg intravenously) or saline infusions were performed 60 min after APT induction. Non-embolized control buy lipitor online animals received saline. APT significantly increased pulmonary vascular resistance index (PVRI) and mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP) by approximately 310% and 258% respectively. While atorvastatin pretreatment attenuated these increases (~150% and 153%, respectively; P < 0.05), its combination with sildenafil was associated with lower increases in PVRI and MPAP (~32% and 36%, respectively). Gelatin zymography showed increased MMP-9 and MMP-2 levels in the bronchoalveolar lavage, and increased MMP-9 levels in plasma from embolized animals. Atorvastatin pretreatment attenuated bronchoalveolar lavage MMP-2 increases. The combination of drugs blunted the MMPs increases in bronchoalveolar lavage and plasma (P < 0.05). Neutrophils accumulated in bronchoalveolar lavage after APT, and atorvastatin pretreatment combined with sildenafil (but not atorvastatin alone) attenuated this effect (P < 0.05). APT increased lung lipid peroxidation and total protein concentrations in bronchoalveolar lavage, thus indicating oxidative stress and alveolar-capillary barrier damage, respectively. Both increases were attenuated by atorvastatin pretreatment alone or combined with sildenafil (P < 0.05). We conclude that pretreatment with atorvastatin protects against the pulmonary hypertension associated with APT and that sildenafil improves this response. These findings may reflect antioxidant effects and inhibited neutrophils/MMPs activation.

Atorvastatin has shown to possess neuroprotective, antiexcitotoxic, and antiepileptic effects besides its cholesterol-lowering properties. Nitric oxide (NO) may be responsible for a group of these effects. In the present study, a model of clonic seizure induced by pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) in male NMRI mice was used to investigate the anticonvulsive effects of atorvastatin through NO-dependent pathways. Atorvastatin (5 mg/kg) significantly increased the seizure threshold (P < 0.001). Moreover, L-arginine (a buy lipitor online precursor of NO) significantly (P < 0.01) potentiated the anticonvulsive effects of subeffective doses of atorvastatin (1 mg/kg). Finally, L-NAME [L-arginine methyl ester dihydrochloride], a nonspecific NO synthase inhibitor, completely abolished the anticonvulsive properties of atorvastatin. Our findings demonstrated the role of atorvastatin as an anticonvulsive agent and showed the effects to be mediated through NO-related pathways.

The AVALON study was a randomized, multicenter trial to assess the efficacy and safety of coadministered amlodipine and atorvastatin in patients with hypertension and dyslipidemia. Phase one was an 8-week, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo-controlled period whereby patients received amlodipine 5 mg, atorvastatin 10 mg, amlodipine 5 Zetia Drug Prices mg and atorvastatin 10 mg, or placebo. Thereafter, all patients received single-blind amlodipine 5 mg and atorvastatin 10 mg for 8-weeks, followed by 12 weeks of open-label treatment where doses could be titrated to improve low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and blood pressure control. A total of 847 patients entered the double-blind phase. At Week 8, 45% of the patients receiving amlodipine 5 mg and atorvastatin 10 mg reached both their blood pressure and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol goals, compared with 8.3% with amlodipine (p < 0.001), 28.6% with atorvastatin (p < 0.001), and 3.5% with placebo. At 28 weeks, 67.1% of patients coadministered amlodipine and atorvastatin (mean doses, 7.6 mg and 28.4 mg, respectively) achieved both targets. Framingham estimated 10-year risk of coronary heart disease declined from baseline levels of 15.1% to 6.9% at Week 28. Following coadministered treatment, the adverse events reported were similar to either agent alone. Concomitant administration of amlodipine and atorvastatin is an effective and well tolerated treatment for coexisting hypertension and dyslipidemia.

Ten oxidosqualene cyclase inhibitors with high efficacy as cholesterol-lowering agents and of different chemical structure classes were evaluated as potential anticancer agents against human cancer cells from various tissue origins and nontumoral human-brain-derived endothelial cells. Inhibition of cancer cell growth was demonstrated at micromolar concentrations, comparable to the concentrations of statins necessary for antitumor effect. Human glioblastoma cells were among the Micardis Hct Dosage most sensitive cells. These compounds were also able to decrease the proliferation of angiogenic brain-derived endothelial cells, as a model of tumor-induced neovasculation. Additive effects in human glioblastoma cells were also demonstrated for oxidosqualene cyclase inhibitors in combination with atorvastatin while maintaining selectivity against endothelial cells. Thus, not only statins targeting the 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase but also inhibitors of oxidosqualene cyclase decrease tumor growth, suggesting new therapeutic opportunities of combined anti-cholesterol agents for dual treatment of glioblastoma.

There was a significant decrease of MDA concentrations with atorvastatin [mean (sem)] [0.29 (0.04) vs. 0.25 (0.02) μmol/liter; P < 0.01] compared with placebo [0.28 (0.02) vs. 0.29 (0.12) μmol/liter; P = 0.52]. Three months treatment with metformin resulted in further reduction of MDA levels with atorvastatin compared with baseline [0.25 (0.02) baseline vs. 0.23 (0.03) μmol/liter for atorvastatin treated; P = 0.02]. There was also a significant correlation between the reduction in MDA with a reduction in high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (r = 0.71, P Glucovance Drug Interactions < 0.01), an increase in 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD; r = -0.68, P = 0.02), and a reduction in testosterone levels (r = 0.63, P = 0.01). Multiple linear regression analysis revealed Δ25OHD, ΔC-reactive protein, and Δtestosterone were independent predictors of changes in MDA after atorvastatin treatment. No correlation was observed between the reductions in serum MDA concentrations with changes in the lipid parameters.

The object of this study is to investigate the pharmacokinetic interaction of pioglitazone hydrochloride and atorvastatin calcium in healthy adult Beagle dogs following single and multiple oral dose administration. A randomized, cross-over study was conducted with nine healthy adult Beagle dogs assigned to three groups. Each group was arranged to take atorvastatin calcium (A), pioglitazone hydrochloride (B), atorvastatin calcium and pioglitazone hydrochloride (C) orally in the first period, to take B, C, A in the second period, and to take C, A, B in the third period for 6 days respectively. The blood samples were collected at the first and the sixth day after the administration, plasma drug concentrations were determined by LC-MS/MS, a one-week wash-out period was needed between each period. The pharmacokinetic parameters of drug combination group and the drug alone group were calculated by statistical moment method, calculation of C(max) and Arcoxia 200 Mg AUC(0-t) was done by using 90% confidence interval method of the bioequivalence and bioavailability degree module DAS 3.2.1 software statistics. Compared with the separate administration, the main pharmacokinetic parameters (C(max) and AUC(0-t)) of joint use of pioglitazone hydrochloride and atorvastatin calcium within 90% confidence intervals for bioequivalence statistics were unqualified, the mean t(max) with standard deviation used paired Wilcoxon test resulted P > 0.05. There was no significant difference within t1/2, CL(int), MRT, V/F. Pioglitazone hydrochloride and atorvastatin calcium had pharmacokinetic interaction in healthy adult Beagle dogs.

Statins have been postulated to affect bone metabolism. We investigated the effects of different doses of simvastatin (1, 5, 10, and 20 mg. kg(-1). d(-1)), atorvastatin (2.5 mg. kg(-1). d(-1)), and pravastatin (10 mg. kg(-1). d(-1)) administered orally for 12 weeks to intact female Sprague-Dawley rats and the effect of 20 mg. kg(-1). d(-1) simvastatin in sham-operated and ovariectomized rats on femoral bone mineral density (BMD) and quantitative bone histomorphometry (QBH) and compared them with controls. BMD was decreased by 1 mg. kg(-1). d(-1) simvastatin (P=0.042), atorvastatin (P=0.0002), and pravastatin (P=0.002). The effect on QBH parameters differed with different doses of simvastatin (ANOVA, P=0.00012). QBH parameters of both bone formation and resorption were equivalently and markedly increased by 20 mg. kg(-1). d(-1) simvastatin in 2 separate groups of intact rats and were reflected by a relatively unchanged BMD. At lower doses, 1 mg. kg(-1). d(-1) simvastatin decreased bone formation while increasing bone resorption, as reflected by a marked decrease in BMD. Ovariectomized animals receiving 20 mg. kg(-1). d(-1) simvastatin showed no change in BMD relative to the untreated, ovariectomized controls; their increase in bone formation was smaller than in sham-operated rats receiving simvastatin, and there was no change in bone resorption. Dose-response curves of simvastatin for bone formation and resorption differed. These studies indicate that (1) statins decrease BMD in rodents, (2) high-dose simvastatin increases bone formation and resorption, (3) low-dose simvastatin decreases bone formation and increases bone resorption, (4) the effects of simvastatin on QBH differ at different dosages, (5) the effects of simvastatin seen in intact rats are not observed in ovariectomized rats, and (6) simvastatin is unable to prevent bone loss caused by ovariectomy.

We found that probucol treatment reduced the plasma cholesterol levels, but less remarkably than atorvastatin treatment. In spite of this, probucol treatment led to a prominent reduction of aortic en face lesions by 39%(P<0.01), whereas atorvastatin reduced these by 16%(P>0.05), compared with those in the control. Histological examinations revealed that the aortic lesions of probucol-treated rabbits were characterized by reduced macrophages and increased smooth muscle cells compared with those from both the control and atorvastatin groups. Furthermore, probucol treatment reduced the coronary artery stenosis and increased the plaque stability.

Patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (HoFH) have markedly elevated low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels that are refractory to standard doses of lipid-lowering drug therapy. In the present study we evaluated the effect of atorvastatin on steady state concentrations of plasma lipids and mevalonic acid (MVA), as well as on 24-h urinary excretion of MVA in patients with well characterized HoFH. Thirty-five HoFH patients (18 males; 17 females) received 40 mg and then 80 mg atorvastatin/day. The dose of atorvastatin was increased further to 120 mg/day in 20 subjects and to 160 mg/day in 13 subjects who had not achieved LDL cholesterol goal, or in whom the dose of atorvastatin had not exceeded 2.5 mg/kg body wt per day. LDL cholesterol levels were reduced by 17% at the 40 mg/day and by 28% at the 80 mg/day dosage (P<0.01). Reduction in LDL cholesterol in the five receptor negative patients was similar to that achieved in the 30 patients with residual LDL receptor activity. Plasma MVA and 24-h urinary excretion of MVA, as markers of in vivo cholesterol synthesis, were elevated at baseline and decreased markedly with treatment. Urinary MVA excretion decreased by 57% at the 40 mg/day dose and by 63% at the 80 mg/day dosage (P<0. 01). There was a correlation between reduction in LDL cholesterol and reduction in urinary MVA excretion; those patients with the highest basal levels of MVA excretion and thus the highest rates of cholesterol synthesis having the greatest reduction in LDL cholesterol (r=0.38; P=0.02). Increasing the dose of atorvastatin to 120 and 160 mg/day did not result in any further reduction in LDL cholesterol or urinary MVA excretion suggesting a plateau effect with no further inhibition of cholesterol synthesis at doses of atorvastatin greater than 80 mg/day.

Both statins produced statistically significant improvements in all measured plasma lipids and lipoproteins. The main treatment comparison showed no statistically significant difference in changes in LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, whereby the overall effects were comparable when doses of 20 mg and 40 mg of simvastatin were compared with atorvastatin 10 mg and 20 mg. The mean percent reductions for LDL cholesterol from baseline to Week 6 ranged from 35-42% for the entire study cohort. An LDL cholesterol level < or = 130 mg/dl (3.4 mmol/l) was achieved in approximately 70% of patients treated with both drugs in this study. Simvastatin and atorvastatin were well tolerated at the doses studied.
