ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the seventh HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor pitavastatin for patients with primary hyperlipidemia and mixed dyslipidemia. It is stated that pitavastatin decreases the level of total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), apolipoprotein B (Apo B), and triglycerides (TG). It adds that the suggested starting dose for the drug is 2 milligrams per day in which the dosage may be increased if lowering of LDL-C is insufficient.
