Information provided by (Responsible Party):
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate that 76 weeks of treatment with rosuvastatin calcium 2.5-20 mg results in no progression of coronary artery atherosclerotic volume as measured by intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS) imaging in hypercholesterolaemic subjects with coronary heart disease (CHD).

Condition Intervention Phase
Hypercholesteremia Drug: Rosuvastatin Drug: HMG CoA inhibitor Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Rosuvastatin in the Long-term Treatment of Hypercholesterolaemic Subjects With Coronary Heart Disease as Measured by Intravascular Ultrasonography

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change From Baseline (Before the Start of Rosuvastatin Treatment) to Week 76 in the Plaque Volume (PV) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 76 weeks ]
    Plaque volume will be assessed by volumetric analysis with the echoPlaque2 system (Indec Systems Inc). Baseline and follow-up IVUS images will be reviewed side-by-side on a display, and the target segment selected. The target segment to be monitored will be determined in a non-PCI site (>5 mm proximal or distal to the PCI site) with a reproducible index such as side branches, calcifications, or stent edges.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline to Week 76 in Plaque Volume (PV) in the Target Lesion [ Time Frame: Baseline - 76Weeks ]
    Target Lesion indicates Coronary plaque composition of culprit lesions.

  • Percent Change From Baseline to Specified Measurement Time Points in Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL-C) [ Time Frame: Baseline - 76Weeks ]
  • Percent Change in High-sensitivity C-reactive Protein (HS-CRP) From Baseline to Specified Measurement Time Points [ Time Frame: Baseline - 76Weeks ]

Enrollment: 214
Study Start Date: October 2005
Study Completion Date: October 2008
Primary Completion Date: October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Rosuvastatin
    2.5-20 mg
    Drug: HMG CoA inhibitor
    3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A
