Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia
  • At least 18 years of age

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women who are pregnant or lactating, or planning to become pregnant.
  • Subjects with a clinically indicated need for statin (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor) therapy other than atorvastatin or other concomitant therapy with known lipid altering effects on LDL-C and HDL-C including fibrates and nicotinic acid (high doses)
  • Subjects taking any drugs known to be associated with an increased risk of myositis in combination with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors
  • Subjects with any other medical condition or laboratory abnormality which could affect subject safety, preclude evaluationof response, or render unlikely that the subject would complete the study
