Zocor

Zocor is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor. Zocor is used to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death due to coronary heart disease. It also reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, blood vessel blockage, or chest pain caused by angina, it lows high cholesterol and triglycerides and increases high-density lipoprotein (HDL, "good") cholesterol levels. Zocor works by reducing the production of certain fatty substances in the body, including cholesterol.

Statins may have a protective effect against the development of adenomatous polyps. The negative association between statin use and polyp incidence showed a significant dose and duration relationship.

zocor 500 mg

DPSCs were treated with different concentrations of simvastatin. Cell counting kit-8 activity was examined to test cell proliferation, and alkaline phosphatase assays and alizarin red S staining were conducted to examine differentiation. In addition, DPSCs pretreated with simvastatin were transplanted into the dorsum of CB-17 severe combined immunodeficiency mice. Areas of mineralized tissue were compared. Eighteen immature premolars from 2 beagle dogs were divided into 4 groups and treated by pulpotomy: the mineral trioxide aggregate, absorbable gelatin sponge, canine DPSCs (cDPSCs), and simvastatin groups. The teeth were extracted after 10 weeks, and the areas of regenerated pulp and dentin were calculated and compared.

Acute vascular- and neuroprotective effects of simvastatin were evaluated in a rat model of transient, focal cerebral ischemia. Male, Wistar rats (n=12) underwent transient middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion for 3 hours followed by 3 hours of reperfusion. After 30 minutes of MCA occlusion, four rats each were subcutaneously injected with either 20 or 40 mg/kg of simvastatin. At the end of 3 hours of reperfusion, tissue injury and blood-brain barrier (BBB) opening were quantified by histology and [(14)C]-alpha-aminoisobutyric acid (AIB)-based quantitative autoradiography (QAR), respectively. Compared with untreated rats, those treated with simvastatin (20 mg/kg) had reduced volumes of AIB leakage, tissue pallor and distribution space for AIB (p<0.05). No additional effects were seen with the higher drug dose (40 mg/kg). These data suggest that the acute neuroprotective effects of statins are in part owing to attenuation of stroke-induced changes in BBB permeability.

Simvastatin directly reduced in vitro prostate cell proliferation in a dose-dependent, cell line-specific manner, but ezetimibe had no effect. In vivo, low continuous dosing of ezetimibe, delivered by food, or simvastatin, delivered via an osmotic pump had no effect on tumor growth compared to control mice. In contrast, dual treatment of simvastatin and ezetimibe accelerated tumor growth. Ezetimibe significantly lowered serum cholesterol by 15%, while simvastatin had no effect. Ezetimibe treatment resulted in higher tumor cholesterol. A sixfold induction of low density lipoprotein receptor mRNA was observed in ezetimibe and the combination with simvastatin versus control tumors.

zocor reviews

There was a significant reduction in total serum cholesterol (-9%), LDL-cholesterol (-9%) and serum triglycerides (-21%) when the standard doses of acipimox (750 mg/day) was added to treatment with simvastatin (and a resin). However, higher doses had no further hypolipidemic effect. In concordance with the reduction of serum cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol there was a significant decrease in apolipoprotein (apo)-B (-11%). There was no change in HDL-cholesterol, apo-A1 and lipoprotein(a). Acipimox in high doses up to 2250 mg/d was well tolerated except for initial gastric complaints and of flushing; because of these side effects one patient dropped out of the study.

Thirteen patients received simvastatin and 12 placebo. Clinical characteristics were similar. Moderate or severe angiographic vasospasm occurred in 42 vs. 45 % and delayed cerebral ischemia in 14 vs. 55 % (p = 0.074). During PET studies, MAP (110 ± 10 vs. 111 ± 12), global CBF (41 ± 12 vs. 43 ± 13), and CVR (2.95 ± 1.0 vs. 2.81 ± 1.0) did not differ at baseline. When MAP was raised to 135 ± 7 mm Hg vs. 137 ± 15, global CBF did not change. Global AI did not differ (107 ± 59 vs. 0. 89 ± 52 %, p = 0.68). CBF did not change in regions with low baseline flow or in regions supplied by vessels with angiographic vasospasm in either group. Six-month modified Rankin Scale scores did not differ.

Intestinal expression of Abcg5 and Abcg8 did not show much variation between the various models. In contrast, a linear correlation between hepatic expression levels of Abcg5 and Abcg8 and biliary cholesterol secretion rates was found. This relation was independent of Abcb4-mediated phospholipid secretion. However, in diosgenin-fed mice showing cholesterol hypersecretion, hepatic Abcg5 and Abcg8 expression levels remained unchanged.

Commonly reported renal complications of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) include acute renal failure and/or acute interstitial nephritis; in rare cases a nephrotic syndrome was also observed. In most cases this was due to the development of secondary membranous nephropathy. Following withdrawal of the drug the nephrotic syndrome usually resolved rapidly. We report a 65-year-old woman who developed a nephrotic syndrome and acute renal failure during 6 months of treatment with the NSAID diclofenac. Renal biopsy revealed both, membranous nephropathy and interstitial nephritis. After discontinuation of diclofenac and treatment with prednisone 1 mg/kg/day, furosemide 400 mg/day and simvastatin at a dose of 20 mg/day, creatinine clearance gradually increased and after 5 months of treatment complete remission of the nephrotic syndrome was observed.

Recently, we have shown that some HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) induce immediate pleiotropic effects in vascular endothelium both in vivo and in vitro, to mention only PGI2-mediated thrombolysis in rats and NO-mediated endothelium-dependent vasodilation in guinea pig coronary circulation. Here we look whether immediate endothelial effect of statins is associated with mobilization of intracellular calcium ions [Ca2+]i in cultured bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAEC). We analyzed the effects of various statins (atorvastatin, cerivastatin, simvastatin, lovastatin and pravastatin at concentration of 10-30 microM) on [Ca2+]i in BAEC in comparison to responses induced by bradykinin (Bk) (10 nM), adenosine diphosphate (1 microM), acetylcholine (100 nM), adrenaline (10 microM), serotonin (10 microM) or calcium ionophore A 23187 (0.1 microM) using FURA-2 according to fluorimetric method of Grynkiewicz et al. Basal [Ca2+]i level in BAEC was between 60 and 100 nM. Bk was the most potent to induce [Ca2+]i response. Delta[Ca2+]i induced by Bk was 331.9 +/- 19.49 nM (n = 36). Delta[Ca2+]i induced by statins (30 microM), i.e. atorvastatin, cerivastatin, simvastatin, lovastatin and pravastatin were 66.4 +/- 7.38% (n = 6), 54.8 +/- 10.12% (n = 5), 58.8 +/- 13.9% (n = 8), 27.7 +/- 7.19% (n = 5) and 0% (n = 5) of the response induced by Bk (10 nM), respectively. In summary, all statins tested, except pravastatin, induce immediate increase in [Ca2+]i in endothelium. This pleiotropic activity of statins in endothelium, most likely not related to the inhibition of HMG-CoA reductase, may represent an intracellular correlate for the immediate release of NO and PGI2 by these drugs that was reported by us previously.

This randomized trial was conducted to investigate the effects of atorvastatin and simvastatin on uric acid homeostasis in patients treated for primary hyperlipidemia. A total of 180 patients were enrolled; patients were randomly assigned to 40 mg/d of either atorvastatin or simvastatin. Serum lipid and metabolic parameters were measured at baseline and at 6 and 12 weeks of treatment; random urine samples were simultaneously obtained for creatinine, sodium, and uric acid determinations.

The effects of statins (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase-HMGR-inhibitors) on the inflammatory response remain unclear. HMGR is implicated in the mevalonate pathway, directly upstream of cholesterol biosynthesis. We studied the impairment by this pathway of cytokine production by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and THP-1 cells. The aim was to identify a specific cytokine "signature" of cells under simvastatin treatment in order to link pharmacological inhibition of the mevalonate pathway and inflammation.

Five hundred sixty-three pharmacists responded (response rate: 49.5%). Newly reclassified medicines studied had been adopted into practice by the respondent pharmacists to varying degrees. A high majority of the respondents expressed support for the reclassified status (82.4%) and perceived that the level of adoption into practice of OTC chloramphenicol was high (92.1%). In contrast, over 80% of respondents had not yet made a supply of OTC simvastatin to patients, mainly owing to pharmacists' perceptions of lack of evidence of efficacy of the OTC dose and patient demand. Decision-making was influenced by factors such as perceived benefits to patients and pharmacy practice; e.g., respondents who agreed that reclassified naproxen was a good opportunity to develop their professional role were significantly more likely to rate their support for the reclassified status highly than those who were unsure or disagreed (odds ratio = 3.7 (95% confidence interval: 2.1-6.7); P value <0.001).

The study is a prospective, randomised, open label trial with blinded end point assessment and balanced randomisation (1:1) conducted in 10 outpatient clinics in Denmark. The primary end point after 5 years of follow-up is a composite of death from cardiovascular causes, non-fatal myocardial infarction, non-fatal stroke and cardiac revascularisation. Secondary outcomes are: the proportion of patients achieving low-density lipoprotein cholesterol <2.5 mmol/L, glycated haemoglobin <48 mmol/mol, blood pressure <140/90 mm  Hg for patients without diabetes and <130/80 mm Hg for patients with diabetes and normoalbuminuria (urinary albumin creatinine ratio <30 mg/g) after 1 year of follow-up and the proportion of patients in each treatment group achieving low RA disease activity after 1 year, defined as a disease activity score C-reactive protein (DAS28-CRP) <3.2 and a DAS28-CRP score <2.6 after 12, 24 and 60 months. Furthermore, all hospitalisations for acute and elective reasons will be adjudicated by the event committee after 12, 24 and 60 months. Three hundred treatment-naive patients with early RA will be randomly assigned (1:1) to receive either conventional treatment administered and monitored by their general practitioner according to national guidelines (control group) or a stepwise implementation administered and monitored in a quarterly rheumatological nurse-administered set-up of behaviour modification and pharmacological therapy targeting (1) hyperlipidaemia, (2) hypertension, (3) hyperglycaemia and (4) microalbuminuria (intervention group).

A solitary coronary ostium, in the absence of other congenital cardiovascular abnormalities, is a rare finding at angiography, and may be associated with myocardial ischemia and sudden cardiac death. We present a 46-year-old female who presented with a non-ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarct in whom the diagnosis of a single coronary artery with right sided ostium was made during diagnostic coronary angiography. Multi-detector computed tomography and gadolinium-enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance were valuable in delineating the extremely rare IIE1 coronary anatomy, the localization and the extent of myocardial necrosis.

Statins, competitive inhibitors of hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase, have recently been shown to have a therapeutic effect in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In RA, synovial fibroblasts in the synovial lining, are believed to be particularly important in the pathogenesis of disease because they recruit leukocytes into the synovium and secrete angiogenesis-promoting molecules and proteases that degrade extracellular matrix. In this study, we show a marked reduction in RA synovial fibroblast survival through the induction of apoptosis when the cells were cultured with statins. Simvastatin was more effective in RA synovial fibroblasts than atorvastatin, and both statins were more potent on tumor necrosis factor-alpha-induced cells. In contrast, in osteoarthritis synovial fibroblasts, neither the statin nor the activation state of the cell contributed to the efficacy of apoptosis induction. Viability of statin-treated cells could be rescued by geranylgeraniol but not by farnesol, suggesting a requirement for a geranylgeranylated protein for synovial fibroblast survival. Phase partitioning experiments confirmed that in the presence of statin, geranylgeranylated proteins are redistributed to the cytoplasm. siRNA experiments demonstrated a role for Rac1 in synovial fibroblast survival. Western blotting showed that the activated phosphorylated form of Akt, a protein previously implicated in RA synovial fibroblast survival, was decreased by about 75%. The results presented in this study lend further support to the importance of elevated pAkt levels to RA synovial fibroblast survival and suggest that statins might have a beneficial role in reducing the aberrant pAkt levels in patients with RA. The results may also partly explain the therapeutic effect of atorvastatin in patients with RA.

There were significant reductions of total cholesterol (-26.4%), triglycerides (-16.0%), LDL-cholesterol (-35.2%), VLDL-cholesterol (-15.4%), TC/HDL-C (-30.7%), and LDL/HDL-C (-39.5%). There was significant elevation of HDL-cholesterol (+5.2%), although this response was not uniform. The drug was well tolerated: only five patients reported transient clinical adverse experiences that subsided spontaneously. Two patients had elevation of CPK and one of TGP. The drug did not have to be discontinued in any case. Ophthalmological examinations performed before treatment compared to examinations at the end of the study showed no signficant alterations.

Regional and averaged myocardial blood flow were measured at rest and after dipyridamole induced vasodilation (0.56 mg/kg) using dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) and N-13 ammonia as flow tracer related to a 3-compartment kinetic model. Baseline data (mean +/- SD): 13 males, 5 females; mean age: 56 +/- 8 years; basal coronary flow: 90 +/- 22 ml/min x 100 g; after lipid intervention: 93 +/- 18 ml/min x 100 g (n.s.). Total cholesterol: 246 +/- 45 mg/dl. RESULTS AFTER 6-MONTH LIPID INTERVENTION: Total cholesterol decreased to 170 +/- 36 mg/dl (p < 0.001); mean LDL level: 97 +/- 26 mg/dl (p < 0.001). Coronary dilator capacity increased, assessed in terms of minimal coronary resistance: 0.38 +/- 0.08 vs 0.49 +/- 0.09 units at baseline (p < 0.01), myocardial blood flow under dipyridamole: 232 +/- 43 vs 186 +/- 37 ml/min x 100 g at baseline (p < 0.01), and instantaneous flow ratio: 2.6 +/- 0.7 vs 2.2 +/- 0.6 (p = 0.06). Concomitantly, a considerable regression of angina was noticed in the majority of patients.

Knowledge of pharmacogenetics may help clinicians predict their patients' therapeutic dose of warfarin, thereby decreasing the risk of bleeding during warfarin initiation. Our goal was to use pharmacogenetics to develop an algorithm that uses genetic, clinical, and demographic factors to estimate the warfarin dose a priori. We collected a blood sample, demographic variables, laboratory values, smoking status, names of medications, and dietary history from 369 patients who were taking a maintenance dose of warfarin. Using polymerase chain reaction, we genotyped each participant for the presence of 8 polymorphisms in the cytochrome P450 2C9 system. Using multiple regression, we quantified the association between warfarin dose and all factors. Advanced age, lower body surface area (BSA), and the presence of cytochrome P450 2C9 *2 or *3 single nucleotide polymorphisms were strongly associated (P < 0.001) with lower warfarin dose: the maintenance dose decreased by 8% per decade of age, by 13% per standard deviation decrease in BSA, by 19% per 2C9*2 allele, and by 30% per 2C9*3 allele. Warfarin doses were 29% lower in patients who took amiodarone, 12% lower in patients who took simvastatin, 21% lower in patients whose target INR was 2.5 rather than 3.0, and 11% lower in white rather than African-American participants (P < 0.05 for these comparisons). An algorithm that included these factors and one of borderline significance (sex), explained 39% of the variance in the maintenance warfarin dose. Use of this pharmacogenetic model had potential to prevent patients from being overdosed when initiating warfarin: we estimate that only 24 (6.5%) patients would have been over- dosed by >2 mg/day with pharmacogenetic dosing compared to 59 (16%) patients who would have been overdosed if they had been prescribed the empirical dose of 5 mg/day (P < 0.001). In conclusion, the maintenance warfarin dose can be estimated from demographic, clinical, and pharmacogenetic factors that can be obtained at the time of warfarin initiation.

Thirty two male Wistar rats were divided into four groups: normal group (N), model group (M), the group treated with Mortierella isabellina lipid-soluble extracts (T) and Simvastatin (S). N buy zocor group was fed a standard diet and the other groups were fed a high-fat diet. T and S groups were orally administered by Mortierella isabellina lipid-soluble extracts and Simvastatin respectively for 12 weeks. N and M groups were orally administered by the normal saline. Twenty four-hour urinary protein excretion was detected. The levels of serum ALB, TP, BUN, Scr, TG, TC, LDL and TG, TC, LDL in the kidney were measured at week 12. The histological change, ultrastructural change and lipid deposits in kidney were evaluated.

The metabolic syndrome (MS) is characterized by low-grade inflammation and confers an increased risk for diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Statins reduce cardiovascular events in patients with the MS and have pleiotropic effects in addition to lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Because there is a paucity of data on the effect of statins on adiponectin levels and insulin sensitivity in the MS buy zocor , this study was conducted to test the effect of simvastatin (40 mg/day) compared with placebo on circulating adiponectin levels and homeostasis model assessment insulin resistance in subjects with the MS in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Simvastatin therapy failed to affect circulating adiponectin levels or insulin sensitivity compared with placebo over 8 weeks. In conclusion, although simvastatin is anti-inflammatory, it failed to affect adiponectin levels or improve insulin sensitivity in subjects with the MS.

An ISO GUM measurement uncertainty estimation procedure was developed for a liquid-chromatographic drug quality control method-assay of simvastatin in drug formulation. In quantification of uncertainty components several practical approaches for including difficult-to-estimate uncertainty sources (such as uncertainty due to peak integration, uncertainty due to nonlinearity of the calibration curve, etc.) have been presented. Detailed analysis of contributions of the various uncertainty sources was carried out. The results were calculated based on different definitions of the measurand buy zocor and it was demonstrated that unequivocal definition of the measurand is essential in order to get rigorous uncertainty estimate. Two different calibration methods - single-point (1P) and five-point (5P) - were used and the obtained uncertainties and uncertainty budgets were compared. Results calculated using 1P and 5P calibrations agree very well. The uncertainty estimate for 1P is only slightly larger than with 5P calibration.

Cajanus cajan L. is a natural plant, which contains a lot of potential active components. In the present study, we identified the effects of the stilbene extract from Cajanus cajan L. (sECC) on hepatic cholesterol metabolism in diet-induced (for 4 weeks) hyperlipidemic Kunming mice. All experimental mice were divided into 5 groups: control group, high lipid model group, sECC-treated with 200 or 100 mg kg(-1), and simvastatin (Sim, 12 mg kg(-1)) treated group. The mice were fed with fat and cholesterol-enriched chow except control mice that were fed with standard diet. The effects of sECC were investigated by monitoring serum and liver lipid profile (i. e. cholesterol homeostasis) in mice. To further explore the mechanism of sECC, hepatic cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase (CYP7A1) and low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor expressions in cholesterol homeostasis were analyzed by reverse transcription PCR. After 4 weeks pretreatment, the mice in the buy zocor high lipid model group showed markedly higher serum and hepatic lipid contents than control group (P< 0.01). Compared with high lipid model group, the increased serum and hepatic lipid contents were markedly attenuated by sECC (200 mg kg(-1)), the serum and hepatic total cholesterol were reduced by 31.5% and 22.7% (P<0.05), respectively. The triglyceride contents of serum and liver were also lowered by 23.0% and 14.4%, respectively. At the same times, serum LDL cholesterol decreased by 53.0% (P<0.01). The mRNA expressions of hepatic CYP7A1 and LDL-receptor were significantly enhanced in the mice administered with sECC (200 mg kg(-1)), whereas those expressions were suppressed by the fat and cholesterol-enriched diet. These data indicate that sECC reduces the atherogenic properties of dietary cholesterol in mice. It is indicated that expression enhancement of hepatic LDL-receptor and cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase may be responsible for the hypercholesterolemic effect.

Previous studies have demonstrates that statins improve neurological outcome and promote neurovascular recovery after ICH. This study is designed to examine whether simvastatin and atorvastatin affect levels of growth factors and activate the Akt signaling pathway during the recovery phase after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in rats. Sixty (60) male Wistar rats were subjected to ICH by stereotactic injection of 100 μL of autologous blood into the striatum and were treated with or without simvastatin or atorvastatin. Neurological functional outcome was evaluated by behavioral tests (mNSS and corner turn test) at different time points after ICH. Brain extracts were utilized for Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) analyses to measure vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF); brain-derived neurotrophin factor (BDNF) expression, and nerve growth factor (NGF). Western blot was used to measure the changes in the Akt-mediated signaling pathway. Both the simvastatin- and atorvastatin-treated animals had significant neurological improvement at 2 weeks post-ICH. Simvastatin and atorvastatin treatment increased the expression of BDNF, VEGF and NGF in both low- and high-dose groups at 7 days after buy zocor ICH (p < 0.05). Phosphorylation of Akt, glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β), and cAMP response element-binding proteins (CREB) were also increased at 7 days after statin treatment. These results suggest that the therapeutic effects of statins after experimental ICH may be mediated by the transient induction of BDNF, VEGF and NGF expression and the activation of the Akt-mediated signaling pathway.
