Effects of atorvastatin on high-density lipoprotein apolipoprotein A-I metabolism in dogs.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The mechanisms involved in the decline of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels at a higher dose of atorvastatin have not yet been elucidated. We investigated the effects of atorvastatin on HDL-apolipoprotein (apo) A-I metabolism in dogs, a species lacking cholesteryl ester transfer protein activity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven ovariectomized… (More)
