ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00554138
First received: November 5, 2007
Last updated: September 22, 2008
Last verified: September 2008
  Purpose

The aim of this study is to show whether rosuvastatin influences adenosine metabolism. Therefore we will determine whether rosuvasatin increases dipyridamole-induced vasodilation by increased adenosine receptor stimulation.
