Brief Summary:
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 or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Intervention Details:
  • Drug: Rosuvastatin
    2.5-20 mg
  • Drug: HMG CoA inhibitor
    3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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 :
  1. 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.

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