  Purpose
We wanted to test the hypothesis that acute treatment with atorvastatin changes renal sodium handling, renal hemodynamics, tubular function and vasoactive hormones in healthy humans during normal and high sodium intake.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Subjects Drug: Atorvastatin Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glomerular filtration rate, clearance of sodium and lithium, fractional excretion of sodium and lithium, U-AQP-2, total sodium excretion, free water clearance [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • AVP, Ang-II, Aldosterone, ANP, BNP, PRC, BP and HR. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Enrollment: 23
Study Start Date: January 2007
Study Completion Date: October 2007
Primary Completion Date: October 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Atorvastatin
    80 mg atorvastatin on two following days each
Detailed Description:

We wanted to test the hypothesis that acute treatment with atorvastatin changes renal sodium handling, renal hemodynamics, tubular function and vasoactive hormones in healthy humans during normal and high sodium intake.

We wanted to analyze if changes in renal hemodynamics, tubular function, hormones, blood pressure and HR under acute treatment with atorvastatin depends on sodium intake.
