- Determine the effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on the capacity of plasma to promote cholesterol efflux, which is the first and likely rate limiting step in reverse cholesterol transport.
- Determine the effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on:
- - cholesterol esterification by measuring plasma lecithin:cholesterol acyl transferase concentration and capacity to esterify cholesterol, one of the stops in RCT.
- - plasma concentration of cholesterol ester transfer protein and capacity to transfer cholesterol from HDL-C to apoB-containing lipoproteins, one of the steps in RCT.
- - plasma concentration of preβ1-HDL.
- - plasma concentration of LDL cholesterol, HDL-C and apoA-1.
