Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare plasma concentrations of SCH 58235 (ezetimibe) and pitavastatin after administration of each drug alone and in combination, using Cmax and AUC(0-24h). [ Time Frame: Day 7 of each period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare plasma concentrations of SCH 58235 (ezetimibe) and pitavastatin administration of each drug alone and in coadministration, using Tmax, plasma concentration 24 h after last dose, and AUC(I). [ Time Frame: Day 7 of each period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse events, laboratory tests results, and vital signs. [ Time Frame: Throughout study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
