Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary objective of this study is to determine whether rosuvastatin reduces the combined endpoint of cardiovascular death or non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI) or non-fatal stroke (time to first event).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The secondary objectives are to evaluate the effects of rosuvastatin on:
  2. Total mortality
  3. Any coronary event defined as the combined endpoint of sudden death or fatal or non-fatal MI or Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) or Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) or defibrillation of ventricular fibrillation by an implant
  4. Cardiovascular mortality with cause-specific mortality for sudden death; fatal MI; and death from worsening heart failure
  5. Total number of hospitalizations for cardiovascular causes; for unstable angina; and for worsening heart failure
