This study has been completed.

Information provided by (Responsible Party):
AstraZeneca
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00683618
First received: May 21, 2008
Last updated: March 19, 2012
Last verified: March 2012
  Purpose
This trial is to compare the efficacy, safety and tolerability of Rosuvastatin with Atorvastatin by assessing the change of LDL-C in patients with hypercholesterolemia and history of coronary heart disease (CHD) or risk equivalent, or a 10 year CHD risk of no less than 10%, following 6-week treatment and a possible 6 week extension treatment.

Condition Intervention Phase
Hypercholesterolemia Drug: Rosuvastatin Drug: Atorvastatin Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised, Double-blind Trial to Compare the Efficacy of Rosuvastatin 5 and 10 mg to Atorvastatin 10 mg in the Treatment of High Risk Patients With Hypercholesterolemia Followed by an Open Label Treatment Period With Rosuvastatin Up-titrated to the Maximum Dose of 20 mg for Those Patients Who do Not Achieve Goal
