(3S,5S)-Atorvastatin (sodium salt)
Atorvastatin exists in four optical forms. The (3R, 5R)-atorvastatin enantiomer displays the greatest activity against HMG-CoA reductase. (3S,5S)-Atorvastatin is an enantiomer of atorvastatin with little or no inhibitory activity against HMG-CoA reductase . Atorvastatin is a synthetic HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor implicated in lowering plasma cholesterol levels by inhibiting endogenous cholesterol synthesis. Atorvastatin also reduces triglyceride levels through an as yet unproven mechanism . In various trials in patients with hypercholesterolaemia, atorvastatin produced greater reductions in total cholesterol, apolipoprotein B, LDL-cholesterol and triglyceride levels. In patients with primary hypercholesterolaemia, atorvastatin in combination with colestipol produced significant reductions in LDL-cholesterol levels and smaller reductions in triglyceride levels than atorvastatin monotherapy .
