Simvaglyzin, a complex compound of simvastatin and glycyrrhizic acid, administered to rabbits with experimental hypercholesterolemiain in doses equivalent to 66.6 and 40 µg/kg simvastatin exhibited antioxidant capacity (decreased the content of lipid peroxidation products in the blood by 27–41%) and endothelium-normalizing effect (decreased the level of von Willebrand factor and endothelin-1 by 26–58 and 21–29%, respectively, compared to 200 µg/kg simvastatin, p<0.05). 
Analysis of Biochemical Changes in Rat Erythrocytes Induced by Long-Term Simvastatin Treatment
TLDR
It was demonstrated that hypoxia and imbalance in the antioxidant enzyme system contribute to the development of side effects of statins.
Influence of glycyrrhizin on permeability and elasticity of cell membrane: perspectives for drugs delivery
TLDR
The influence of GA on the functional properties of biomembranes was investigated via NMR spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy using human erythrocytes as a model system and GA was shown to increase the permeability and to decrease elasticity modulus of cell membranes even in micromolar concentrations.
New molecular complex of ammonium gycyrrhizate with rutin
A new 1:1 molecular complex of triterpene glycoside ammonium glycyrrhizate (GC) with flavonoid glycoside rutin (Rut) was obtained in aqueous ethanol. The stability constant (9.7±0.2)×104 (mol/L)–1
Natural Poly- and Oligosaccharides as Novel Delivery Systems for Plant Protection Compounds.
TLDR
The effect of polysaccharides and oligosaccharides on the penetration efficacy of plant protection products might be associated with the detected solubility enhancement and the affinity of DSs to the surface of cell membranes.
Arabinogalactan and glycyrrhizin based nanopesticides as novel delivery systems for plant protection
TLDR
Data show that the effect of polysaccharides and oligosaccharides on the nanopesticide penetration might be associated with the solubility enhancement, affinity of DSs to the surface of grains, and the modification of cell membranes by poly- and oligogalactan nanocomposites.

Using rabbit model of experimental hypercholesterolemia we showed that the hypocholesterolemic effect of simvaglisin, a complex preparation containing simvastatin and glycyrrhizic acid, in doses
Simvastatin Versus Ezetimibe: Pleiotropic and Lipid-Lowering Effects on Endothelial Function in Humans
TLDR
Four weeks of simvastatin treatment improves endothelial function independently of LDL cholesterol lowering, at least in part by reducing oxidant stress.
Oxygen-mediated heterogeneity of apo-low-density lipoprotein.
Mild oxidation of human serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL) converts the apoprotein from a nearly homogeneous component of high apparent molecular weight to a mixture of apparently lower molecular
Cholesterol and mortality. 30 years of follow-up from the Framingham study.
TLDR
Under age 50 years these data suggest that having a very low cholesterol level improves longevity, and after age50 years the association of mortality with cholesterol values is confounded by people whose cholesterol levels are falling--perhaps due to diseases predisposing to death.
