Effects of Statins on Pro- and Antioxidant Status : Link With Statin-Associated Myopathy.
To evaluate the effects of a 8-week treatment with 80 mg/day simvastatin on prooxidant and antioxidant status at rest and after exercise, on mitochondrial respiration and calcium release in skeletal muscle, and on aérobic aptitude in 24 healthy male subjects.
