  Purpose
The primary objective of this study is to compare the effect of rosuvastatin 10mg with atorvastatin 10mg after 6 weeks of treatment in the ratio of ApoB/ApoA1 in subjects with metabolic syndrome.

Condition Intervention Phase
Metabolic Syndrome X Drug: Rosuvastatin Drug: Atorvastatin Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage Change From Baseline in Ratio of Apolipoprotein (ApoB/ApoA1) at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Samples for evaluation from all investigational sites will be delivered by courier to the central laboratory within 24 hours of blood being drawn. This outcome will be calculated by using the result of ApoB and ApoA1.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Reaching Their LDL-C Target Goal [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Based on NCEP ATP III guideline, calculate the percentage of subjects reaching their LDL-C target goal. LDL-C target goals are <70mg/dl, <100mg/dl and <130mg/dl according to their baseline conditions (presence of Coronary heart disease and risk factors and grade of Framingham 10-Year risk).

  • Percentage of Subjects Reaching Their Low-Density Lipoprotein-C (LDL-C) and Non High-Density Lipoprotein-C (HDL-C) Target Goal [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Based on NCEP ATP III guideline, calculate the percentage of subjects reaching their LDL-C & non HDL-C target goal.

  • Percentage Change of Glucose Level [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Using laboratory test, mean change of glucose level was investigated.

  • Percentage Change of Insulin Resistance Using HOMA-R [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    HOMA-R was calculated using insulin and glucose levels derived by laboratory test. The formula is as following: HOMA-R = insulin* glucose/22.5

  • Percentage Change of Insulin Resistance Using QUICKI [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    QUICKI was calculated using insulin and glucose levels derived by laboratory test. The formula is as following: QUICKI = 1/[log(insulin) + log(glucose)].

  • Percentage Reduction of Low-Density Lipoprotein-C (LDL-C) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Calculate the percentage reduction of LDL-C

  • Percentage Change of Total Cholesterol (TC) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Calculate the percentage change of total cholesterol level

  • Percentage Change of High-Density Lipoprotein-C (HDL-C) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Calculate the percentage change of HDL-C level

  • Percentage Change of Triglycerides (TG) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Calculate the percentage change of Triglycerides.

  • Percentage Change of Apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Calculate the percentage change of Apolipoprotein A1

  • Percentage Change of Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    Calculate the percentage change of apolipoprotein B
