Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center, cross-over study of the efficacy, safety and tolerability rosuvastatin in children and adolescents (aged 6 to <18 years) with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH). The study is designed to assess the efficacy of rosuvastatin 20 mg compared to placebo on lipids, lipoproteins and apolipoproteins in pediatric patients with HoFH. The outcome measures to be assessed include low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides, non-HDL-C, LDL-C/HDL-C, TC/HDL-C, non-HDL-C/HDL-C, apolipoprotein B (ApoB), apolipoprotein A 1 (ApoA-1) and ApoB/ApoA-1 following 6 weeks of treatment with rosuvastatin 20 mg or placebo. Pharmacokinetic data of the trough plasma exposure of rosuvastatin will also be assessed in these pediatric patients with HoFH.
