  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on the capacity of plasma to promote cholesterol efflux, which is the first and likely rate limiting step in reverse cholesterol transport.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on the capacity of plasma to promote cholesterol efflux, which is the first and likely rate limiting step in reverse cholesterol transport.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on:
  • - cholesterol esterification by measuring plasma lecithin:cholesterol acyl transferase concentration and capacity to esterify cholesterol, one of the stops in RCT.
  • - plasma concentration of cholesterol ester transfer protein and capacity to transfer cholesterol from HDL-C to apoB-containing lipoproteins, one of the steps in RCT.
  • - plasma concentration of preβ1-HDL.
  • - plasma concentration of LDL cholesterol, HDL-C and apoA-1.
