  Purpose

The Torcetrapib project was terminated on December 2, 2006 due to safety findings.

To demonstrate if torcetrapib/atorvastatin can reduce the risk for major cardiovascular disease events, when compared to atorvastatin alone, in patients with coronary heart disease or risk equivalents

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of coronary heart disease or risk equivalents that place the patient at high risk for cardiovascular disease events

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
  • 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
