  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Rosuvastatin 5 mg as an hypercholesterolemia treatment comparatively at 2 other statins: Pravastatin 40 mg and Atorvastatin 10 mg. Treatment efficacy will be evaluated by the percentage of LDL-C variation after 8 weeks of treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) Level After 8 Weeks [ Time Frame: Change from baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    To compare the percentages of LDL-C level variation. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To Compare the Percentage of Patients Reaching the Overall LDL-C Goal According to the French Agency for the Safety of Health Products (AFSSAPS) 2005 Guidelines for the Management of Dyslipidaemic Patients [ Time Frame: Not done ]
    Not done. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • To Compare the Percentage of Patients Reaching the LDL-C Goal, in Relation to the Number of Risk Factors, According to the French Agency for the Safety of Health Products (AFSSAPS) 2005 Guidelines for the Management of Dyslipidaemic Patients [ Time Frame: Not done ]
    Not done. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • Compare the Percentage of Total Cholesterol Variation From Baseline and After 8 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: from baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    To compare the percentage of total cholesterol variation taking baseline value as a reference. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • Compare the Percentage of HDL-C (High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol) Variation From Baseline and After 8 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: After 8 weeks of treatment ]
    Compare the percentage of HDL-C (High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol) variation taking baseline value as a reference and after 8 weeks of treatment. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • Compare the Percentage of Variation From Baseline Triglycerides Values and After 8 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    To compare the percentage of variation from baseline triglycerides values and after 8 weeks. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • Compare the Percentage of Variation From Baseline Apolipoprotein B/Apolipoprotein A1 Ratio and After 8 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    To Compare the percentage of variation from baseline Apolipoprotein B/Apolipoprotein A1 ratio and after 8 weeks of treatment. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • Compare the Percentage of Variation of C-reactive Protein (CRP) [ Time Frame: baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    To compare the percentage of variation of C-reactive protein (CRP) taking baseline values as reference. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • Compare the Percentage of Variation of Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) [ Time Frame: from baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    To Compare the percentage of variation of phospholipase A2 (PLA2) taking baseline value as a reference. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data

  • Compare the Numbers of Patients Achieving the LDL-C Goal According to the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP) ATP III) Guidelines for the Management of Dyslipidaemic Patients [ Time Frame: from baseline and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    To Compare numbers of patients achieving the LDL-C goal according to the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP). As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data. The percentage of patients achieving the NCEP-ATP III LDL-C goal. ATP III is categorized into 3 risk categories:(1) established CHD and CHD risk equivalents(2) multiple risk factors(3) zero to one (0-1) risk factor

  • Compare the Numbers of Patients Achieving the LDL-C Goal According to the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) Guidelines for the Management of Dyslipidaemic Patients
    Not done. As the recruitment target was not reached at the date initially planned, and in view of the recruitment difficulties, AstraZeneca decided not to extend the patient recruitment period and to perform only a descriptive analysis of the data.

  • To Evaluate Clinical and Laboratory Safety [ Time Frame: duration of study ]
