[Effect of the inhibitors of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme-A reductase, pravastatin and simvastatin, on colony formation by hematopoietic progenitor cells].

Abstract

The inhibitors of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme-A (HMG-CoA) reductase, pravastatin and simvastatin, are widely used clinically as anti-hypercholesterolemic drugs. To determine whether these drugs affect hematopoiesis, we examined the effect of the drugs on colony formation by human bone marrow cells. Simvastatin strongly inhibited both erythroid and… (More)
