Effects of simvastatin on lipid levels and platelet activation in elderly patients with hypercholesterolemia

  • Publish Date: 2007-12-28
  • Background and Objective To investigate the effects of simvastatin on lipid lowering therapy and platelet activation in elderly patients with hypercholesterolemia. Methods Fasting serum lipids, CD63, CD41a, serum glucose, hepatic and renal function, routine urine analysis (UA) were measured in 50 healthy subjects, and in 50 elderly patients with hypercholesterolemia before and after 4 weeks treatment with simvastatin (20mg daily for 4 weeks). Results 1. After simvastatin treatment for 4 weeks, the fasting serum level of lipids in elderly patients with hypercholesterolemia was significantly lower than before treatment (P0.05). Conclusions The results suggested that lipid lowering therapy with simvastatin inhibit platelet activity.
