Pitavastatin decreases plasma prebeta1-HDL concentration and might promote its disappearance rate in hypercholesterolemic patients.

Abstract

AIM Prebeta1-HDL is involved in the initial step of cholesterol efflux from peripheral cells and plays an important role in reverse cholesterol transport. We studied the effect of pitavastatin on the HDL subfraction profile, prebeta1-HDL concentration and its disappearance rate. METHODS Twenty-nine hypercholesterolemic patients were treated with… (More)
