Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Patients will be receiving rosuvastatin/placebo for 6 months
  • They will have baseline laboratory parameters taken such as glycemia
  • HbA1c (glycosylated hemoglobin), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), computed tomography (CT), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), C-reactive protein (CRP), and retaken every 3 months
  • Every month, patients will be evaluated at the clinic
  • All participants will receive an intervention on diet and physical activity counseling, which will be carefully monitored.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Other variables will be: proinflammatory cytokines - tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-12, Th2/Th3 cytokines -IL-4, IL-10 and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta)
