A Diabetes Study to Treat A Population Previously Not at Target (ADAPT)

This study has been completed.

AstraZeneca Identifier:
First received: September 2, 2008
Last updated: August 29, 2011
Last verified: August 2011
This study will assess if customizing the start dose of rosuvastatin appropriate for the degree of LDL-C reduction required, would achieve LDL-C target of ≤ 2.0 mmol/L quickly with either no titration or just one titration step after 6 weeks of therapy in type 2 diabetic patients previously treated with another statin and not at LDL-C targets.

Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Drug: Rosuvastatin Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: 12-week, Open-label, Multi-center, Prospective Study Evaluating the Effect of Individualizing Starting Doses of Rosuvastatin According to Baseline LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein)-Cholesterol Levels on Achieving Cholesterol Targets in Type 2 Diabetic Patients

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving Canadian Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) Target Goals (i.e. LDL-C ≤ 2.0 mmol/L) After 12 Weeks of Rosuvastatin Therapy [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks ]
    The number of subjects achieving Canadian Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) target goals (i.e. LDL-C ≤ 2.0 mmol/L) over the total number subjects treated after 12 weeks of rosuvastatin therapy multiplied by 100

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving Total Cholesterol (TC)/ High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDLC) Ratio (i.e. TC/HDL < 4.0 mmol/L) at 6 and 12 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ]
    Proportion of subjects achieving total cholesterol (TC)/ High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC) ratio (i.e. TC/HDL < 4.0 mmol/L) at 6 and 12 weeks of treatment

  • Mean Percent Change in Total Cholesterol (TC), Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDLC) , TC/HDL-C Ratio, Non-HDL-C, Triglycerides and Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) /Apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA-1) Ratio [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ]
  • Mean High Sensitivity C-reactive Protein (hsCRP) Value at Week 6 and 12 [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ]
  • Incidence of Adverse Events and Abnormal Laboratory Values After 12 Weeks of Therapy [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ]
