Second, patients in the RSV20 group included both those treated previously with RSV10 and those given placebo previously, possibly leading to heterogeneity in clinical response. The study population included men and women, aged ≥18 years, with the metabolic syndrome as defined by ATP III criteria (1) (Table 1). They include atorvastatin (Lipitor), rosuvastatin (Crestor), and other generic and brand-name versions.

METHODS: After a 6-week dietary run-in, patients aged > or = 18 years with type 2 diabetes and LDL-C > or = 3.3 mmol/L were randomised to double … Congenital Heart Disease and Pediatric Cardiology, Invasive Cardiovascular Angiography and Intervention, Pulmonary Hypertension and Venous Thromboembolism, CardioSource Plus for Institutions and Practices, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT Meeting on Demand, Annual Scientific Session and Related Events, ACC Quality Improvement for Institutions Program, National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR), CardioSmart for Your Patients: About Type 2 Diabetes, Congenital Heart Disease and Pediatric Cardiology, Invasive Cardiovascular Angiography and Intervention, Pulmonary Hypertension and Venous Thromboembolism. After the 8-week treatment, percentage change (least-square means ± standard error) in the apoB/A1 ratio in the rosuvastatin/ezetimibe group was significantly decreased compared to the rosuvastatin group (− 46.14 ± 1.58% vs. − 41.30 ± 1.58%, respectively; P = 0.03).
