Statins, by inhibiting 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase, decrease the synthesis not only of cholesterol but also of nonsteroidal mevalonate derivatives. While the first effect translates into plasma cholesterol reductions, the second is related to nonlipid-lowering (pleiotropic) properties. Purpose of this review is to assess the correlation between differences in statin structures and clinical effects. While the cardiovascular benefits of statin chronic therapy are achieved by lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and should be considered a class effect, the acute ones may reflect structure differences and pleiotropic properties of these drugs.

Eight weeks-old apoE(-/-) mice were fed a Western-type diet. Vulnerable atherosclerotic lesions were formed in the branchiocephalic artery at the age of 30-weeks, before simvastatin administration for 8 weeks. Simvastatin did neither affect the levels of plasma glucose and lipids, nor the size of atherosclerotic lesions. Analysis of plaque composition showed that simvastatin decreased the area of lipid core and increased the amounts of macrophages and smooth muscle cells in atherosclerotic plaques of apoE(-/-) mice. In addition, simvastatin down-regulated the expression of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) by both inhibition of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-кB) activation and suppression of the expression of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE). Moreover, we found that simvastatin administration led to reduced TUNEL-positive cells in the aortic root lesions, accompanied by up-regulation of Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL expression, and decreased P(53) expression as shown by Western blot.

Vascular dementia (VaD) is a degenerative cerebrovascular disorder that leads to progressive decline in cognitive abilities and memory. Several reports demonstrated that oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction are principal pathogenic factors in VaD. The present study was constructed to determine the possible neuroprotective effects of simvastatin in comparison with cilostazol in VaD induced by L-methionine in rats. Male Wistar rats were divided into four groups. Group I (control group), group II received L-methionine (1.7 g/kg, p.o.) for 32 days. The remaining two groups received simvastatin (50 mg/kg, p.o.) and cilostazol (100 mg/kg, p.o.), respectively, for 32 days after induction of VaD by L-methionine. Subsequently, rats were tested for cognitive performance using Morris water maze test then sacrificed for biochemical and histopathological assays. L-methionine induced VaD reflected by alterations in rats' behavior as well as the estimated neurotransmitters, acetylcholinesterase activity as well as increased brain oxidative stress and inflammation parallel to histopathological changes in brain tissue. Treatment of rats with simvastatin ameliorated L-methionine-induced behavioral, neurochemical, and histological changes in a manner comparable to cilostazol. Simvastatin may be regarded as a potential therapeutic strategy for the treatment of VaD. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to reveal the neuroprotective effects of simvastatin or cilostazol in L-methionine-induced VaD. Graphical Abstract ᅟ.

Simvastatin significantly reduced LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglyceride, VLDL cholesterol, and apolipoprotein B levels and was well tolerated in children with heFH. There was no evidence of any adverse effect of simvastatin on growth and pubertal development. Therefore, simvastatin at doses up to 40 mg is a well-tolerated and effective therapy for heFH children.

An experimental randomised control study was conducted on seventy five male albino rats, divided into five groups labelled A, B, C, D and E with fifteen rats in each group. Group A was kept as normal control, groups B, C, D and E were given hyperlipidaemic diet for six weeks. In group B no further intervention was done, group C and group D were given ethanolic extract of Eugenia Jambolana and Simvastatin respectively for eight weeks. Group E was given combination of both for same duration. Serum total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides were measured at zero, six and fourteen weeks.

Diabetes mellitus is associated with a variety of complications, including alterations in the central nervous system (CNS). We have recently shown that diabetes results in a reduction of cholesterol synthesis in the brain due to decreased insulin stimulation of SREBP2-mediated cholesterol synthesis in neuronal and glial cells. In the present study, we explored the effects of the decrease in cholesterol on neuronal cell function using GT1-7 hypothalamic cells subjected to cholesterol depletion in vitro using three independent methods: 1) exposure to methyl-β-cyclodextrin, 2) treatment with the HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor simvastatin, and 3) shRNA-mediated knockdown of SREBP2. All three methods produced 20-31% reductions in cellular cholesterol content, similar to the decrease in cholesterol synthesis observed in diabetes. All cholesterol-depleted neuron-derived cells, independent of the method of reduction, exhibited decreased phosphorylation/activation of IRS-1 and AKT following stimulation by insulin, insulin-like growth factor-1, or the neurotrophins (NGF and BDNF). ERK phosphorylation/activation was also decreased after methyl-β-cyclodextrin and statin treatment but increased in cells following SREBP2 knockdown. In addition, apoptosis in the presence of amyloid-β was increased. Reduction in cellular cholesterol also resulted in increased basal autophagy and impairment of induction of autophagy by glucose deprivation. Together, these data indicate that a reduction in neuron-derived cholesterol content, similar to that observed in diabetic brain, creates a state of insulin and growth factor resistance that could contribute to CNS-related complications of diabetes, including increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer disease.

Statins exhibit neuroprotective effects after spinal cord injury (SCI). However, the molecular mechanism underlying these effects remains unknown. This study demonstrates that the hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitor simvastatin (Simv) exhibits neuroprotective effects on neuronal apoptosis and supports functional recovery in a rat SCI model by activating the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. In specific, Simv administration after SCI significantly up-regulated the expression of low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 6 phosphorylation and β-catenin protein, increased the mRNA expression of lymphoid enhancer factor-1 and T-cell factor-1, and suppressed the expression of β-catenin phosphorylation in the spinal cord neurons. Simv enhanced motor neuronal survival in the spinal cord anterior horn and decreased the lesion of spinal cord tissues after SCI. Simv administration after SCI also evidently reduced the expression levels of Bax, active caspase-3, and active caspase-9 in the spinal cord neurons and the proportion of transferase UTP nick end labeling (TUNEL)-positive neuron cells, but increased the expression level of Bcl-2 in the spinal cord neurons. However, the anti-apoptotic effects of Simv were reduced in cultured spinal cord nerve cells when the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway was suppressed in the lipopolysaccharide-induced model. Furthermore, the Basso, Beattie, and Bresnahan scores indicated that Simv treatment significantly improved the locomotor functions of rats after SCI. This study is the first to report that Simv exerts neuroprotective effects by reducing neuronal apoptosis, and promoting functional and pathological recovery after SCI by activating the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. We verified the neuroprotective properties associated with simvastatin following spinal cord injury (SCI). Simvastatin reduced neuronal apoptosis, improved the functional and pathological recovery via activating Wnt/β-catenin signal pathway, however, the anti-apoptosis effects of simvastatin were reversed following suppressing Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in primary spinal cord neurons. The significant findings may provide clinical therapeutic value of simvastatin for treating SCI.

In the rat model of nonalcoholic fatty liver fibrosis, the extent of pathological changes in hepatic tissues correlated with severity of disease progression. The levels of serum TC, TG, ALT, AST and TNFa were increased significantly in model rats (vs. healthy controls; all, P less than 0.01). AMPKa mRNA expression and activity was significantly decreased in model rats (vs. healthy controls; P less than 0.01 and P less than 0.05, respectively). Simvastatin, treatment significantly improved all of these parameters in model rats (vs. untreated model rats; all, P less than 0.05). In vitro simvastatin treatment of human HSCs significantly increased AMPKa activity (quiescent LX-2: 0.93+/-0.10 vs. 0.72+/-0.09, activated LX-2: 0.72+/-0.10 vs. 0.54+/-0.10, q=7.00, 6.00; all, P less than 0.01), decreased a-smooth muscle actin expression (mRNA: 0.30+/-0.02 vs. 0.36+/-0.02, protein: 0.30+/-0.03 vs. 0.38+/-0.02, q=11.245, 11.216; all, P less than 0.01), and decreased collagen I expression (mRNA: 0.30+/-0.03 vs. 0.37+/-0.03, protein: 0.25+/-0.03 vs. 0.33+/-0.03, q=8.791, 11.163; all, P less than 0.01).

The in vitro effect of the hydrophilic statin - pravastatin - and three hydrophobic statins - atorvastatin, lovastatin and simvastatin - on the production of IL-1beta, IL-1ra, IL-2, IL-6 and IFN-gamma by human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and their response to mitogens was examined. Lovastatin and simvastatin increased the production of IL-1beta in a dose dependent manner and reduced secretion of IL-1ra at high concentration. These two statins exerted a dose dependent inhibitory effect on IL-2 production and reduced the secretion of IFNgamma at high dose. Atorvastatin did not affect IL-1beta, but suppressed IL-1ra, IL-2 and IFNgamma production. Atorvastatin, lovastatin and simvastatin caused a dose dependent inhibition of mitogen-induced proliferation of PBMC. IL-6 production was not affected by any one of the statins. While pravastatin caused a slight reduction in the proliferative response of PBMC to PHA, it did not affect either their response to Con A and PWM, or the secretion of cytokines tested.

The clinical efficacy and tolerability of simvastatin and fluvastatin were compared in 432 patients with primary hypercholesterolaemia in a multinational, randomised, double-blind trial. Following at least 10 weeks on a lipid-lowering diet, patients continuing to have a total cholesterol level ≥ 6.5 mmol/L and elevated low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels received 6 weeks of once-daily treatment with either simvastatin 5mg (n = 109), simvastatin 10mg (n =110), fluvastatin 20mg (n = 105), or fluvastatin 40mg (n = 108). The relative potency rates of simvastatin to fluvastatin in reducing LDL and total cholesterol levels were estimated to be 7.60 and 7.65, respectively. Significantly greater mean reductions in LDL cholesterol levels were found at week 6 with simvastatin 10mg (30%) compared with either fluvastatin 20mg (22%; p < 0.001) or fluvastatin 40mg (26%; p = 0.03). Similarly, LDL cholesterol was lowered more in the simvastatin 5mg group (26%) than in the fluvastatin 20mg group (22%; p = 0.03). No significant difference was seen between simvastatin 5mg and fluvastatin 40mg. Plasma total cholesterol levels were also significantly lower with simvastatin 10mg compared with fluvastatin 20mg (23 vs 16%; p < 0.001) and fluvastatin 40mg (23 vs 19%; p = 0.02), and with simvastatin 5mg compared with fluvastatin 20mg (19 vs 16%; p = 0.01). Simvastatin 5mg and fluvastatin 40mg both lowered total cholesterol levels by 19%. The percentage of patients reaching National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel II (NCEP ATP II) target LDL cholesterol levels after 6 weeks' treatment with simvastatin 5 or 10 mg/day or fluvastatin 20 or 40 mg/day was 24, 25, 12 and 21%, respectively. Tolerability profiles were generally similar, although significantly more gastrointestinal adverse events occurred in the fluvastatin-treated patients (23 vs 11%). In conclusion, simvastatin 10 mg/day is more effective in lowering total and LDL cholesterol levels than the maximum recommended dose of fluvastatin (40 mg/day), whereas simvastatin 5 mg/day and fluvastatin 40 mg/day showed similar efficacy.

Nonunion of fractured bones is a common clinical problem for orthopedic surgeons. This study aimed to investigate the effects of simvastatin locally applied from calcium sulfate (CS) combined with a mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) sheet on fracture healing. In vitro, the proliferation and differentiation of rat bone marrow-derived MSCs stimulated by simvastatin were investigated. In vivo, an osteotomy model was made in rat tibia, and fractured tibias were treated with CS, CS/simvastatin, CS/MSC sheet or simvastatin-loaded CS with MSC or untreated (control). Tibias were harvested at 2 or 8 weeks and underwent real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction, x-ray, micro-CT and histological analysis. The expression levels of bone morphogenetic protein 2, alkaline phosphatase, osteocalcin, osteoprotegerin and vascular endothelial growth factor of simvastatin-induced MSCs increased with the concentrations of the simvastatin, significantly higher than those in the MSCs group. At 2 weeks, the CS/simvastatin/MSC sheet group showed significantly higher expressions of bone morphogenetic protein 2, alkaline phosphatase, osteocalcin, osteoprotegerin and vascular endothelial growth factor, with more callus formation around the fracture site compared with the other four groups. At 8 weeks, complete bone union was obtained in the CS/simvastatin/MSC sheet group. By contrast, newly regenerated bone tissue partially bridged the gap in the CS/simvastatin group and the CS/MSC sheet group; the control and CS group showed nonunion of the tibia. These results show that both simvastatin and the MSC sheet contributed to the formation of new bone and that the tibia fracture was completely healed by transplantation of the MSC sheet with locally applied simvastatin. Such MSC sheet with locally applied simvastatin might contribute to the treatment of fractures, bone delayed unions or nonunions in clinical practice.

Increased monocyte adherence to the vessel wall is one of the earliest events in atherosclerosis. The mechanism by which hypercholesterolemia causes alterations in endothelial adhesiveness for monocytes is unclear. This study sought to determine if monocyte adhesion molecule expression is affected by low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol levels. Patients with hypercholesterolemia and stable coronary artery disease were compared with those without major cardiovascular risk (control). Patients with hypercholesterolemia were treated with simvastatin 20--40 mg/day for 8--10 weeks. Blood samples were examined with flow cytometry assays at baseline and after cholesterol-lowering therapy. Monocyte CD11b and CD14 adhesion molecule expression, measured as fluorescence intensity, were significantly (P<0.0001) higher in hypercholesterolemic patients before the study (176.9+/-9.8 and 138.0+/-4.8, respectively) when compared with that in control subjects (97.2+/-8.1 and 84.0+/-6.4, respectively). Both decreased markedly with treatment: to 118.8+/-6.9 and 103.1+/-3.9, respectively. Monocyte L-selectin expression was significantly lower in patients with hypercholesterolemia before treatment (43.0+/-3.0) when compared with control subjects (79.9+/-2.7), and it increased markedly with treatment (54.2+/-2.5). LDL levels correlated directly with both CD11b and CD14 expression and correlated inversely with L-selectin expression. These data show that hypercholesterolemia affects monocyte adhesion molecule expression which, in turn, decreases with statin-induced plasmatic cholesterol reduction. Such perturbations in monocyte function likely represent a proinflammatory response to hypercholesterolemia and may have a role in the early progression of atherogenesis.

The present study aims to directly investigate the behavioral and antioxidant effects of simvastatin in a model of bipolar mania induced by lisdexamfetamine dimesylate. Wistar rats were treated for 30 days with simvastatin. On the 24th day after the start of treatment, each rat was administered lisdexamfetamine dimesylate for 7 days. The results suggest that simvastatin combined with lisdexamfetamine dimesylate induced a significant increased locomotion and lisdexamfetamine dimesylate administration causes an oxidative imbalance determined by an increment in lipid peroxidation, protein oxidation and alterations in the activities of antioxidant enzymes in brain areas; moreover, in the presence of simvastatin, most of these effects were prevented. These findings contribute to a better understanding of the critical roles of lisdexamfetamine dimesylate in the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders, associated with increased oxidative stress and changes in antioxidant enzymatic defense. In view of the central role played by lisdexamfetamine dimesylate, the established antioxidant effect of simvastatin therapy is of major interest.

Preclinical information on the biliary metabolites of a drug candidate is typically obtained through the collection of bile after surgical cannulation of the bile duct. In this study, we describe a novel approach using the Entero-Test, a simple device that facilitates the noninvasive sampling of duodenal bile. The Entero-Test was used to collect bile from six fasted dogs that had been dosed either orally with simvastatin (SV) or intravenously with simvastatin hydroxy acid (SVA), compounds that have been previously reported to undergo extensive metabolism and biliary secretion in the dog. The devices, consisting of a weighted gelatin capsule containing 90 cm of a highly absorbent nylon string, were swallowed by each dog with the proximal end of the string taped to the animal's face. Once the weighted string had reached the duodenum, gallbladder contraction was stimulated to release bile. Each bile-stained string was then retrieved via the mouth and, after solvent extraction, samples were analyzed for drug-related material by ultraperformance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy. Numerous metabolites of SV and SVA were observed, and, in general, the major metabolites have been reported previously from studies with bile duct-cannulated animals dosed with [14C]SV or [14C]SVA. The results from this study demonstrate the utility of deploying the Entero-Test in absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination studies to provide information on the nature of biliary metabolites, which, on occasion, may be sufficient to negate the need for more invasive sampling techniques. The benefits and limitations of the technique are discussed.

Recent data indicate that fixed-dose combination (FDC) pills, polypills, can produce sizeable risk factor reductions. There are very few published data on the consistency of the effects of a polypill in different patient populations. It is unclear for example whether the effects of the polypill are mainly driven by the individuals with high individual risk factor levels. The aim of the present study is to examine whether baseline risk factor levels modify the effect of polypill treatment buy zocor online on low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol, blood pressure (BP), calculated cardiovascular relative risk reduction and adverse events.

Seven sustained/controlled-release dosage forms were designed for gastrointestinal delivery of lovastatin or simvastatin, two potent buy zocor online HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. The in vivo performance of these formulations was evaluated in dogs and healthy volunteers in terms of the cholesterol lowering efficacy and/or systemic concentrations of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. Results from the present and previous studies suggest that, through the controlled release of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, sustained lower plasma concentrations of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors may result in an equal or better therapeutic efficacy.

We conducted a retrospective cohort study (1997-2002) to compare 5 statins buy zocor online using data from medical administrative databases in 3 provinces (Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia). We included patients aged 65 years and over who were discharged alive after their first AMI-related hospital stay and who began statin treatment within 90 days after discharge. The primary end point was the combined outcome of recurrent AMI or death from any cause. The secondary end point was death from any cause. Adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) for each statin compared with atorvastatin as the reference drug were estimated using Cox proportional hazards regression analysis.

Recent data indicated that statin therapy may fail to reduce the incidence of coronary events in patients concomitantly using beta blockers. The aim of the present study was to examine whether the concomitant use of beta blockers would modify the anti-inflammatory action of statins. Changes in C-reactive protein (CRP) between days 1 and 5 after myocardial infarction were evaluated in 189 patients treated with simvastatin alone (S), beta blockers alone (B; propranolol or metoprolol), S + B, or neither of these 2 medications (N) in a prospective observational cohort. At baseline, median CRP was lower in the S group (0.40 mg/dl, interquartile range 0.1 to 0.6) than the other groups (B: 0.6 mg/dl, interquartile range 0.4 to 1.6; S + B: 0.5 mg/dl, interquartile range 0.3 to 1.2; and N: 0.6 mg/dl, interquartile range 0.2 to 1.5). By day 5, median CRP was 1.3 mg/dl (interquartile range 0.7 to 2.6), 4.3 (interquartile range 1.6 to 8.8), 4.6 (interquartile range 2.8 to 9.5), and 4.4 (interquartile range 1.9 to 9.9) for the S, B, S + B, and N groups, respectively. After adjusting for log(e) baseline CRP, the difference in log(e) CRP between days 1 and 5 was significantly lower in the S group compared with the B (-0.74 +/- 0.23 [SE], p = 0.001) or S + B group (-0.99 +/- 0.20 [SE], p <0.0001). The significance remained after adjustment for age, gender, and baseline CRP. There was no significant difference in change in CRP between the SB and B groups. In conclusion, the present study confirmed the anti- buy zocor online inflammatory action of statins and showed that concomitant use of beta blockers may significantly attenuate this effect.

Statins have anti-inflammatory effects that are not directly related to their cholesterol-lowering activity. This study aimed to investigate the effect of simvastatin on the extent of tissue damage in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity and hepatotoxicity. The rats received a single intravenous injection of 2.5mgkg(-1) cisplatin. Other groups received either simvastatin (1mgkg(-1)) or the vehicle (ethanol:saline) intraperitoneally for 10 days beginning 5 days prior to cisplatin injection. All animals were decapitated 5 days after cisplatin administration. Trunk blood was collected and analyzed for blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), albumin, and total bilirubin levels. The urine samples were used for the calculation of creatinine clearance levels. The kidney and liver samples were stored for the measurement of malondialdehyde (MDA) and glutathione (GSH) levels, myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity and collagen content or were processed for histopathological examinations. Formation of reactive oxygen species in tissue samples was monitored by using chemiluminescence method. Simvastation reduced the extent of both kidney and liver damage and preserved both kidney and liver functions (p<0.01-0.001). Increase in liver MDA level with a buy zocor online concomitant reduction in GSH in the cisplatin group was attenuated by simvastatin treatment (p<0.05-0.01). Increase in tissue collagen content and chemiluminescence levels in the kidney and liver samples of the cisplatin group was also reversed by simvastatin (p<0.001). In conclusion, simvastatin is beneficial in cisplatin-induced kidney and liver dysfunction and organ damage in rats via prevention of lipid peroxidation and tissue fibrosis, preservation of antioxidant glutathione, and suppression of neutrophil infiltration.

The fatty acid composition of plasma triglycerides by gas chromatography, the dynamics of the segment ST, cardiac arrhythmia by daily monitoring of electrocardiogram in patients with unstable angina (progressive) and the effects of treatment with statins were studied. Revealed marked qualitative abnormalities of plasma triglycerides in patients with progressive angina manifest increase in the amount of saturated and reduction--of unsaturated fatty acids. High therapeutic effect of simvastatin and atorvastatin may be due to the identified strong correlation between the dynamics of the fatty acid components of plasma triglycerides and indicators of ischemia, ectopic activity buy zocor online in patients with progressive angina.

The latest report from the National Cholesterol Education Program has reaffirmed that the primary lipid goal for the prevention of atherosclerotic vascular disease (AVD) is to achieve a normal low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (<130 mg/dL) by diet in normal individuals, and by diet and statin therapy in patients with multiple risk factors. Patients with any clinical AVD (which includes diabetes) will need a statin to achieve an optimal LDL cholesterol (<100 mg/dL). The recent Heart Protection Study might revise our thinking further. Patients at high risk achieved a reduction in mortality and vascular events taking simvastatin 40 mg, even if they had a low baseline LDL value. Individuals with the metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance do not typically have a very high LDL, but rather have elevated triglycerides and a low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. They, too, need to be treated with a statin, first to achieve an appropriate LDL goal. This is insufficient if the buy zocor online triglyceride value exceeds 200 mg/dL. They should be treated to achieve a non-HDL cholesterol goal (equal to total cholesterol minus HDL cholesterol) that is 30 mg/dL higher than the LDL goal.

These data show that while the frequency of lipid-lowering therapy in CHD patients Singulair Generic Dosage in the primary care outpatient setting is relatively high, there remains a treatment gap. Specific areas for improvement are the initiation of higher doses of statins and more aggressive statin titration. The primary care outpatient setting may represent an ideal opportunity to improve control of hyperlipidemia in CHD patients.

HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) can cause skeletal muscle toxicity; the risk of toxicity is elevated by drug interactions and pharmacogenetic factors that increase the concentration of statins in the plasma. Statins are substrates for several membrane transporters that may mediate drug interactions. Inhibitors of the organic anion transporting polypeptide 1B1 can decrease the hepatic uptake of many statins, as well as the therapeutic index of these agents. Potent inhibitors of cytochrome P450 (CYP)3A4 can significantly increase the plasma concentrations of the active forms of simvastatin, lovastatin and atorvastatin. Fluvastatin, which is metabolized by CYP2C9, is less prone to pharmacokinetic interactions, while pravastatin, rosuvastatin and pitavastatin are not susceptible to any CYP inhibition. An understanding of the mechanisms of statin interactions will Evista Raloxifene Tablets help to minimize drug interactions and to develop statins that are less prone to adverse interactions.

Statins have been reported to exert anti-inflammatory actions and protect against septic organ dysfunction. Herein, we hypothesized that simvastatin may attenuate neutrophil activation and lung damage in abdominal sepsis. Male C57BL/6 mice were pretreated with simvastatin (0.5 or 10 mg/kg) before CLP. In separate groups, mice received an anti-CD40L antibody or a CXCR2 antagonist (SB225002) prior to CLP. BALF and lung tissue were harvested for analysis of neutrophil infiltration, as well as edema and CXC chemokine formation. Blood was collected for analysis of Mac-1 and CD40L expression on neutrophils and platelets, as well as soluble CD40L Cordarone Dose in plasma. Simvastatin decreased CLP-induced neutrophil infiltration and edema formation in the lung. Moreover, Mac-1 expression increased on septic neutrophils, which was significantly attenuated by simvastatin. Inhibition of CD40L reduced CLP-induced up-regulation of Mac-1 on neutrophils. Simvastatin prevented CD40L shedding from the surface of platelets and reduced circulating levels of CD40L in septic mice. CXC chemokine-induced migration of neutrophils in vitro was decreased greatly by simvastatin. Moreover, simvastatin abolished CLP-evoked formation of CXC chemokines in the lung, and a CXCR2 antagonist attenuated pulmonary accumulation of neutrophils. Our data suggest that the inhibitory effect of simvastatin on pulmonary accumulation of neutrophils may be related to a reduction of CD40L secretion into the circulation, as well as a decrease in CXC chemokine formation in the lung. Thus, these protective mechanisms help to explain the beneficial actions exerted by statins, such as simvastatin, in sepsis.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of simvastatin on the protein kinase B (PKB) signaling pathway and the expression of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN). The effects of simvastatin were analyzed by administering the drug orally to male spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) at a dose of 10 mg/kg/day, while the control animals received an equal volume of saline. The systolic pressure (mmHg) of the rat tail artery was measured prior to the initiation of the experiment, and once a week until the end of the experiment. At the end of the experiment, the animals were euthanized and the hearts were removed. The left ventricular and interventricular septum were weighed, after which the left ventricular mass/body mass ratio was calculated. In addition, cardiomyocytes isolated from Sprague Dawley rats were cultured with 15% fetal bovine serum to induce hypertrophy, following which the cells were treated with different doses of simvastatin. The in vitro effects were assessed by measuring the surface area of the cardiomyocytes, while the rate of Hyzaar Dose Information protein synthesis was measured using a 3H-leucine incorporation assay and western blot analyses. Simvastatin was demonstrated to inhibit cardiomyocyte hypertrophy in the in vivo and in vitro experiments. Notably, simvastatin increased PTEN expression and inhibited PKB expression in the SHR model, as well as in the cardiomyocytes in culture. In addition, the use of PTEN antisense oligodeoxynucleotides was revealed to inhibit the effects of simvastatin on cardiomyocytes. Therefore, these results indicated that simvastatin was able to reverse cardiomyocyte hypertrophy in vivo and in vitro, possibly by increasing the expression of PTEN.

Simvastatin time- and concentration-dependently increased t-PA and decreased PAI-1 synthesis, reaching maximal effects after 48 hours, when simvastatin (1 micromol/L) increased t-PA levels 5.1 +/- 0.1-fold and suppressed PAI-1 levels 2.6 +/- 0.2-fold. This was accompanied by a twofold increase in mesothelial cell- Naprosyn Blue Pill associated t-PA activity. Qualitatively similar results were obtained in cultured human endothelial cells, but the effects were less pronounced and required higher simvastatin concentrations. Northern blot analysis revealed that the action of simvastatin on t-PA and PAI-1 expression in HMC can be explained by parallel changes in t-PA and PAI-1 mRNA. The effects of simvastatin were prevented in the presence of mevalonate and geranylgeraniol, suggesting that the effect of simvastatin on t-PA and PAI-1 synthesis is mediated through geranylgeranyl-modified intermediates. Experiments using specific inhibitors of geranylgeranylated Rho GTPases excluded a role of members of this family of small GTP-binding proteins in simvastatin action in HMC. The effects of simvastatin on t-PA and PAI-1 expression as well as on cell shape were completely mimicked by cytochalasin D, a disrupter of cellular actin filaments, but not by colchicine, a disrupter of microtubules.

Statins are widely prescribed to organ transplant recipients with hyperlipidemia. We report the case of a cardiac transplant recipient who developed severe rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure after being switched from pravastatin to simvastatin. The patient's other medications included cyclosporin A and diltiazem. Unlike pravastatin, the metabolism and tissue concentrations of simvastatin--and of other statins - can be greatly affected by these drugs. The propensity of the individual statins to interact with drugs commonly prescribed to transplant recipients is reviewed.

We assessed plasma lipid levels in children and adolescents who were on various drug regimens and who were attending a specialized lipid treatment center. All subjects had familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), and the study group included 30 subjects with heterozygous (He) and three with homozygous (Ho) FH. In the 30 He FH subjects treated with 5 to 30 g/day of a bile-acid-binding resin, plasma lipid levels were still substantially above optimal (less than or equal to 50th percentile for age and sex), although statistically significant (p less than 0.001) reductions in total and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol of 15% and 21% compared with baseline were achieved. In eight subjects who received resin plus niacin, additional reductions in total and LDL cholesterol of 15% and 17%, respectively, were achieved. Even though the combination therapy produced reductions in total, LDL, and LDL/high density lipoprotein cholesterol of 29%, 37%, and 47%, respectively, compared with baseline, resulting absolute levels were still well above optimal. Six subjects with severe He FH received a 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG CoA) reductase inhibitor (lovastatin, 80 mg/day or simvastatin, 40 mg/day), and substantial total and LDL cholesterol reductions on the order of 35% and 41%, respectively, were found compared with diet alone. The decreases were substantially greater than those achieved with either resin or resin plus niacin. In a number of these subjects, absolute lipid levels were approaching optimal levels. In the three Ho FH subjects, the response to HMG CoA reductase inhibitors was variable but generally poor.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The orexin system plays a major role in the integration of metabolic and circadian influences that drive wakefulness. This paper describes initial Phase I trials of a novel dual orexin receptor antagonist SB-649868 that has demonstrated preclinical potential for treatment of sleep disorders. The trial designs included a single ascending dose escalation study (dose range: 10-80 mg in the fed and fasted states) and a multiple repeat dose study (dose range: 5-30 mg in the fed state) enrolling a total of 103 male volunteer subjects. SB-649868 was well tolerated at all doses in this study population, with mechanism-related adverse events (e.g. somnolence and fatigue) observed in a majority of subjects after 60 and 80 mg single doses. Although total drug exposure was similar in the fed and fasted states, the rate, but not the extent, of absorption increased in the fed state, resulting in an increased C(max). The typical estimated half-life of SB-649868 was 3-6 h - comparable with currently used hypnotic agents. Repeated administration of SB-649868 dose-dependently increased exposure to simvastatin (10 mg), suggesting CYP3A4 inhibition ranging from very mild (5 mg) to strong (30 mg). Evening dosing resulted in significant dose-dependent improvement in latency to persistent sleep, total sleep time and wake after sleep onset as measured by polysomnography. Next-morning testing did not detect evidence of residual cognitive effects. Results of these trials support further investigation of SB-649868 and other dual orexin receptor antagonists as potentially effective and well-tolerated treatments for patients with sleep disorders.
