Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the dose-related effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on production & fractional catabolism of apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) and apolipoprotein A-II (apoA-II), & on the plasma apoA-I, apoA-II & high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) c

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the dose-related effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on cellular cholesterol efflux,total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), non-LDL-C, triglyceride & pre1-HDL concentrations,HDL2,HDL3 cholesterol ratio
  • Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) and lecithin:cholesterol acyl transferase (LCAT) activity
  • Lathosterol and campesterol, total apolipoprotein B (apoB), nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) and apolipoprotein C-III (apoC-III) plasma concentrations.
