Aiming to study the influence of long-term administration of lipid lowering agents (atorvastatin; AV), and to study the action of combined treatment with injectable contraceptive (medroxyprogesterone acetate; MPA) on tegumental ultrastrucutre and survival of Schistosoma worms, this study was established. AV (0.9 mg kg-1) was administered orally for 49 successive days to Schistosoma heamatobium-infected hamster starting from day 35 post-infection (pi). Another group of infected hamster was administrated MPA intramuscularly (0.1 ml kg-1) at days 7 and 35 pi followed by AV treatment regimen. Both treatment regimens significantly affected the surface ultrastructure of the male worms more pronouncedly than the female ones. Combined treatment was more severe in action compared to single one. The combined treatment was characterized by losing of spines and damaging of tubercles throughout the tegument, severe erosion and peeling and appearance of deep crakes in different parts of the tegument. Moreover, mild to sever destruction to the oral suckers of both female and male worms was noticed. On the other hand, both treatment regimens significantly reduced numbers of recovered S. haematobium worms and tissue egg load. Oogram pattern was affected only in case of combined treatment with high percentage of dead eggs. In conclusion, AV, if given continuously for long time, has a pronounced antischistosomal action especially when accompanied with contraceptive intake. These promising results may encourage further investigation with the intention of their possible application on treatment of schistosomiasis as a complement strategy to praziquantel chemotherapy.

The present study aimed to assess the effects of a COX-2 inhibitor, celecoxib, a HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, atorvastatin, and the association of both on monocrotaline (MC)-induced pulmonary hypertension in rats. Celecoxib (Cib, 25 mg kg(-1) day(-1)), atorvastatin (AS, 10 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) or vehicle, were given orally, separately or in combination, for 26 days to Wistar male rats injected or not with MC (60 mg/kg intraperitoneally). At 4 weeks, MC-injected rats developed a severe pulmonary hypertension, with an increase in lung to body weight ratio (L/BW), right ventricular pressure (RVP in mmHg, 31 +/- 3 and 14 +/- 1 for MC and control groups, respectively, P < 0.05) and right ventricle/left ventricle + septum weight ratio (RV/LV+S) associated with a decrease in acetylcholine- and sodium-nitroprusside-induced pulmonary artery vasodilation in vitro. Hypertensive pulmonary arteries exhibited an increase in wall thickness (wall thickness to external diameter ratio, 0.42 +/- 0.01 vs 0.24 +/- 0.01 for MC and control groups, respectively, P < 0.001). Whole lung eNOS expression was decreased, and an increase in apoptosis, evaluated by cleaved caspase-3 expression, was evidenced by Western blotting. Cib (RVP in mmHg, 19 +/- 3 and 31 +/- 3 for MC+Cib and MC groups, respectively, P < 0.05), but neither AS nor AS+Cib significantly limited the development of pulmonary hypertension (P < 0.05), although the three treatments exhibited protective effects against MC-induced lung and right ventricle hypertrophy evaluated by L/BW and RV/(LV+S) ratios, respectively (P < 0.05). AS, Cib and AS+Cib treatments reduced MC-induced thickening of small intrapulmonary artery wall (0.42 +/- 0.01, 0.24 +/- 0.01, 0.26 +/- 0.01 and 0.28 +/- 0.01 for MC, MC+AS, MC+Cib and MC+AS+Cib groups, respectively, P < 0.001). In control rats, Cib reduced acetylcholine-induced pulmonary artery vasorelaxation. Treatment of MC rats by either Cib or AS did not modify acetylcholine-induced pulmonary artery relaxation, whereas combination of both drugs significantly worsened it (P < 0.05). AS, but neither Cib nor the combination of both, prevented apoptosis (AS, P < 0.05) and partially restored eNOS expression (AS, P < 0.05) in whole lung of MC rats. In conclusion, celecoxib exhibited beneficial effects against the development of monocrotaline-induced pulmonary artery hypertension and right ventricular hypertrophy. These beneficial effects of celecoxib might be, at least partly, explained by its effects on pulmonary artery thickening and pulmonary hypertrophy, even if it did not show any effect on pulmonary artery vasorelaxation and whole lung eNOS expression or apoptosis. The combination of celecoxib and atorvastatin was unable to prevent MC-induced pulmonary hypertension, decreased endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation and showed a trend toward an increased in RVP that deserves further studies.

In ASD there was uniform distribution of drug in the polymer and it retained the amorphous nature without any chemical interactions except the possibility of hydrogen bond formation, with substantially higher gastric solubility. The dissolution profile of the ODT containing ASD was significantly improved >90% within 15 min compared with 25% of plain ATO formulation. In vivo results showed an overall enhancement in the apparent bioavailability (83% and 434% more than Lipitor® and plain amorphous ATO tablets, respectively). Combining the ASD with ODT presents a reliable solution to overcome the low solubility and bioavailability problems of ATO in a simple, robust and cost effective formulation.

When compared with the control group, lipid levels were not significantly lower following 4 weeks of atorvastatin administration. The increases in the normalised MVE over time were greater in the control group than in the atorvastatin group (p=0.001). The increase in plaque volume from 16 to 20 weeks was significantly greater in the control group than in the atorvastatin group (p=0.001). There was a positive relationship between changes in normalised MVE and plaque volume (r=0.72, p=0.002).

Of the 1 968 709 beneficiaries, 1 483 066 (58.8% male and 41.2% female; mean [SD] age, 55.6 [10.2] years) received a prescription for a single statin and were included in the analysis. The introduction of the first generic competitor was associated with a reduction in monthly brand-name atorvastatin fills by 20 896 prescriptions (level change, P = .001), an 18.1% change compared with the month preceding loss of exclusivity. Full generic competition reduced brand-name fills by 54 944 prescriptions (level change, P < .001), a 47.6% change relative to the month preceding loss of exclusivity. During the first 180 days of generic competition, no meaningful difference in monthly out-of-pocket spending was found between brand-name (median, $16.98; interquartile range [IQR], $8.76-$48.66) and generic (median, $19.98; IQR, $7.50-$54.90) atorvastatin. After full generic competition, estimated monthly out-of-pocket spending for generic atorvastatin (median $5.10; IQR, $3.36-$19.98) or authorized generic atorvastatin (median, $5.52; IQR, $3.48-$19.98) was substantially lower than that for brand-name atorvastatin (median, $30.00; IQR, $15.00-$91.38).

At baseline, all parameters were comparable between the sham and the dyslipidemia groups. At 8 weeks of dyslipidemia establishment, as compared to the sham group, body weight and lipid profiles were significantly elevated, and plasma levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), malondialdehyde (MDA) and ADMA were concomitantly increased in accompanying with NO reduction in the dyslipidemia groups. With 4 weeks of atorvastatin therapy, as compared to the control group, lipid disorders and NO production were improved, and plasma levels of CRP, MDA and ADMA were significantly decreased in the high-dose atorvastatin group. ADMA concentration of cardiac tissues was also significantly reduced in the high-dose atorvastatin group. Notably, there was a trend to similar effects which did not reach statistical significance in the low-dose atorvastatin group when compared to the control group. Liver enzyme and CK were comparable after 4 weeks of atorvastatin therapy between groups.

Models of atherosclerosis are used in preclinical studies but often fail to translate to humans. A model that better reflects human atherosclerosis is necessary. We recently engineered the ExeGen™ low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) miniswine, in which the LDL receptor gene is modified to drive hypercholesterolemia and atherosclerosis, and showed diet-related exacerbation of these phenotypes. Five groups of animals, either wild type (+/+) or heterozygous (+/-), were fed either a normal or high-fat diet for 6 months. One group of heterozygous pigs fed a high-fat diet was also administered atorvastatin at 3 mg/kg/day. Clinical chemistry and anatomic pathology parameters were measured biweekly and at termination. The high-fat diet resulted in increased adiposity and interspersion of adipocytes within the salivary glands. The heterozygous pigs on the high-fat diet gained more weight and had significant increases in total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein, and LDL compared to wild-type animals or heterozygous animals fed a normal diet. Atorvastatin attenuated these parameters, indicating the statin had a beneficial effect, even in a high-fat diet scenario. Atorvastatin treatment also reduced the intensity of Oil Red O staining in pigs on high-fat diet. Atorvastatin-related amelioration of several indices of cardiovascular pathophysiology in this model underscores its utility for drug discovery.

E3L.CETP mice were fed a cholesterol-rich diet without drugs or with torcetrapib (12 mg x kg(-1) x d(-1)), atorvastatin (2.8 mg x kg(-1) x d(-1)), or both for 14 weeks. Torcetrapib decreased CETP activity in both the absence and presence of atorvastatin (-74% and -73%, respectively; P<0.001). Torcetrapib decreased plasma cholesterol (-20%; P<0.01), albeit to a lesser extent than atorvastatin (-42%; P<0.001) or the combination of torcetrapib and atorvastatin (-40%; P<0.001). Torcetrapib increased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the absence (30%) and presence (34%) of atorvastatin. Torcetrapib and atorvastatin alone reduced atherosclerotic lesion size (-43% and -46%; P<0.05), but combination therapy did not reduce atherosclerosis compared with atorvastatin alone. Remarkably, compared with atorvastatin, torcetrapib enhanced monocyte recruitment and expression of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and resulted in lesions of a more inflammatory phenotype, as reflected by an increased macrophage content and reduced collagen content.

The effects of cholesterol-lowering statins, which substantially benefit future cardiovascular events, on fatty acid metabolism have remained largely obscured. In this study, we investigated the effects of atorvastatin on fatty acid metabolism together with the effects of TAK-085 containing highly purified eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) ethyl ester on atorvastatin-induced n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid lowering in SHR.Cg-Lepr(cp)/NDmcr (SHRcp) rats, as a metabolic syndrome model. Supplementation with 10mg/kg body weight/day of atorvastatin for 17 weeks significantly decreased plasma total cholesterol and very low density lipoprotein cholesterol. Atorvastatin alone caused a subtle change in fatty acid composition particularly of EPA and DHA in the plasma, liver or erythrocyte membranes. However, the TAK-085 consistently increased both the levels of EPA and DHA in the plasma, liver and erythrocyte membranes. After confirming the reduction of plasma total cholesterol, 300mg/kg body weight/day of TAK-085 was continuously administered for another 6 weeks. Supplementation with TAK-085 did not decrease plasma total cholesterol but significantly increased the EPA and DHA levels in both the plasma and liver compared with rats administered atorvastatin only. Supplementation with atorvastatin alone significantly decreased sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1c, Δ5- and Δ6-desaturases, elongase-5, and stearoyl-coenzyme A (CoA) desaturase-2 levels and increased 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase mRNA expression in the liver compared with control rats. TAK-085 supplementation significantly Avelox Generic Introduction increased stearoyl-CoA desaturase-2 mRNA expression. These results suggest that long-term supplementation with atorvastatin decreases the EPA and DHA levels by inhibiting the desaturation and elongation of n-3 fatty acid metabolism, while TAK-085 supplementation effectively replenishes this effect in SHRcp rat liver.

To investigate the mechanisms by which the anticancer drug doxorubicin (DOX)-induced hepato-renal damage could be prevented by the cholesterol-lowering statin, atorvastatin (Ator), Ator (10 mg/kg) was administered orally for 10 days, and, in independent rat groups, DOX hepato-renal toxicity was induced via a single i.p. dose of 15 mg/kg at day 5 of experiment, with or without Ator. DOX caused deterioration in hepato-renal function, as it significantly increased blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST) compared to control, with distortion in normal renal and hepatic histology. Pretreatment with Ator preserved kidney and liver function and histology. DOX caused oxidative stress as indicated by significant decrease in reduced glutathione (GSH) level and catalase activity with increase in malondialdehyde (MDA) compared to control. Combined DOX/Ator significantly reversed these values compared to DOX in both kidney and liver. DOX caused nitrosative stress, as it increased tissue nitric oxide compared to control. Concomitant DOX/Ator treatment decreased NO in kidney and liver. Furthermore, DOX caused inflammatory effects indicated by up-regulation of hepato-renal nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) expression and increment of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) tissue concentration, with down-regulation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS). DOX also caused apoptotic effect, as it up-regulated the apoptotic marker, Bcl-2-associated X protein (Bax), expression in liver and kidney. Using Ator with DOX reversed hepato-renal inflammatory and apoptotic marker expression. These findings suggest Ator as a protective adjuvant against DOX toxicity, via Valsartan Generic For Diovan antioxidant, anti-nitrosative, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic mechanisms.

A 1-year open-label study was conducted to test the efficacy and tolerability of Atorvastatin titrated to the target, in proven FH patients and to evaluate certain inflammatory parameters. One hundred and two FH patients (44 men and 58 women; mean age 58.7+/-3.6 years) were included in the study. After evaluation using the B-mode duplex scanning system of extracranial carotid arteries, the patients were divided into two groups: Group 1 (15 men, 25 women) with carotid plaques or intima-media thickness (IMT) greater than 0.95 mm and Group 2 (30 men, 32 Avapro Generic Alternative women) without carotid plaques or IMT less than 0.95 mm. After a 6-week hypolipemic diet phase all the patients were treated with atorvastatin titrated to achieve a low density lipoprotein (LDL-C) <100 mg/dL. Patients with carotid lesions were also submitted to an oral fixed dose of aspirin 100 mg/day.

Treatment with atorvastatin conferred stroke protection by 40% after filamentous occlusion of the middle cerebral artery followed by reperfusion. Withdrawal of statin treatment, however, resulted in the loss of stroke protection after 2 and 4 days. In mouse aortas and brain vasculature, statins upregulated eNOS message 2.3- and 1.7-fold, respectively, as measured by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Withdrawal of statins resulted in 5- and 2.7-fold downregulation of eNOS in aorta and brain, respectively, after 2 days. Statin treatment decreased RhoA GTPase membrane expression to 48%, while withdrawal of statins resulted in 4-fold increase of RhoA in the membrane. Moreover, platelet factor 4 and beta-thromboglobulin in plasma were significantly downregulated by statin treatment, but withdrawal of statins resulted in a 2.9- and 3.1-fold upregulation after 2 days, respectively. Thrombus formation induced Augmentin 500 Mg Generic by ligature of the inferior vena cava was significantly reduced by statin treatment. When statin treatment was withdrawn, however, protection was lost between 2 and 4 days.

In this randomized, 2-way crossover study, the potential for interaction was investigated between atorvastatin and ximelagatran, an oral direct thrombin inhibitor. Healthy female and male volunteers (n = 16) received atorvastatin 40 mg as a single oral dose and, in a separate study period, ximelagatran 36 mg twice daily for 5 days plus a 40-mg oral dose of atorvastatin on the morning of day 4. In the 15 subjects completing the study, no pharmacokinetic interaction was detected between atorvastatin and ximelagatran for all parameters investigated, including melagatran (the active form of ximelagatran) area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) and maximum plasma concentration, atorvastatin acid AUC, and AUC of active 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme-A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors. Atorvastatin did not alter the melagatran-induced prolongation of the activated partial thromboplastin time, and both drugs were well tolerated when administered in combination. In conclusion, no pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic interaction between atorvastatin and ximelagatran was observed in this study.

Of the 54 patients enrolled, 46 completed the study. All three regimens significantly reduced total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol compared to baseline. No statistically significant differences existed between the three groups in regards to total, or a percentage, decrease in total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol at 6 weeks compared to baseline. All regimens were well tolerated and none of the patients had a significant elevation of liver enzymes or creatine kinase during the course of the study.
