|Official Title:||A Multicentre Study Comparing the Efficacy of Rosuvastatin With Atorvastatin When Given for a Period of 16 Wks to Subjects With Coronary Heart Disease & a Previously Performed Percutaneous Coronary Intervention|
|Study Start Date :||January 2004|
|Primary Completion Date :||March 2006|
|Study Completion Date :||March 2006|
Drug: Rosuvastatin or atorvastatin or simvastatin and clopidogrel
- Compare the efficacy of once daily treatment with rosuvastatin with the efficacy of treatment with atorvastatin
- Compare the impact of treatment with rosuvastatin to that of atorvastatin and simvastatin on clopidogrel initiated inhibition of platelet aggregation in a subset of subjects recruited in the Stockholm region.
- Compare the impact of treatment with rosuvastatin to that of atorvastatin on clopidogrel initiated inhibition of platelet aggregation in all subjects, totally and on each dose of rosuvastatin and atorvastatin.
- Compare the efficacy of treatment with rosuvastatin with the efficacy of treatment with atorvastatin in reducing LDL-C levels
- Compare the efficacy of once daily treatment with rosuvastatin with that of atorvastatin in modifying levels of TC, HDL-C, TG, nonHDL-C (TC-HDL-C), LDL-C
- Compare the titration schedule of rosuvastatin with that of atorvastatin.
- Determine the safety by evaluating the incidence and severity of adverse events and abnormal laboratory values through 16 weeks of treatment
