4. Should we add atorvastatin to irbesartan for improving renoprotective effects in early diabetic nephropathy? A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. (Abstract)

Should we add atorvastatin to irbesartan for improving renoprotective effects in early diabetic nephropathy? A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. Angiotensin II receptor blocker has exhibited their renal protective benefits in diabetic nephropathy. This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the effects of adding atorvastatin to irbesartan in early diabetic nephropathy. A systematic literature search was performed in PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, CNKI, VIP, and Wanfang database until (...) March 25, 2019. Randomized controlled trials evaluating the effects of adding atorvastatin to irbesartan in early diabetic nephropathy were eligible. Primary endpoint was urinary albumin excretion rate, serum creatinine, and blood urea nitrogen. Serum level of total cholesterol, triglyceride, fasting blood glucose, interleukin-6,and C-reactive protein (CRP) as well as blood pressure were secondary endpoints. Seventeen trials involving 1,390 patients were identified. Compared with irbesartan alone

5. Efficacy Evaluation of High-Dose Atorvastatin Pretreatment in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials. (Full text)

Efficacy Evaluation of High-Dose Atorvastatin Pretreatment in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials. BACKGROUND It is unclear whether high-dose atorvastatin pretreatment benefits acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). To clarify this issue, we performed a meta-analysis of the published literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessing high-dose atorvastatin (...) pretreatment in ACS patients undergoing PCI were enrolled. Short-term major adverse cardiac events (MACEs), changes in serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), peak creatine kinase-myocardial band (CK-MB) level, and thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) grade 3 flow after PCI were studied as clinical outcomes. RESULTS Seventeen RCTs including 10 072 patients were retrieved. High-dose atorvastatin showed greater benefits in reducing the incidence of short-term MACEs (OR 0.72; 95% CI: 0.56

6. Effect of loading dose of atorvastatin therapy prior to percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with acute coronary syndrome: a meta-analysis of six randomized controlled trials. (Full text)

Effect of loading dose of atorvastatin therapy prior to percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with acute coronary syndrome: a meta-analysis of six randomized controlled trials. The study sought to summarize the evidence of pre-procedural atorvastatin therapy to improve the prognosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).We searched PubMed and Embase from inception to July 2018 for randomized controlled trials that compared loading (...) dose atorvastatin pretreatment with no or low dose for the prevention of cardiovascular events. The primary end points were all-cause mortality and myocardial infarction (MI) at 30 days. The secondary end point was 30-day major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), a composite of all-cause mortality, MI, and revascularization.Six trials with 4,991 individuals were included in our meta-analysis. High-dose atorvastatin preloading before PCI was associated with a 27% relative reduction in MI (OR: 0.73

8. Effect of atorvastatin treatment on circulating adiponectin: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. (Full text)

Effect of atorvastatin treatment on circulating adiponectin: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. Influences of atorvastatin on atherosclerosis and glycemic metabolism may be related to its potential impact on circulating adiponectin, an adipocyte that exerts anti-inflammatory, ant-atherosclerotic, and anti-oxidative effects. However, results of previous randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were not consistent. We performed a meta-analysis of RCTs to systematic evaluate the influence (...) of atorvastatin on circulating adiponectin.Relevant studies were identified via search of electronic databases of PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane's Library. A random-effect model was applied to pool the results via incorporating the potential heterogeneity. Predefined meta-regression and subgroup analyses were used to evaluate the influences of study characteristics on the outcome.Fourteen datasets from ten RCTs including 931 patients were included. Pooled results showed that atorvastatin did not significantly

12. Association of SLCO1B1 Polymorphisms and Atorvastatin Safety and Efficacy: A Meta-analysis. (Abstract)

Association of SLCO1B1 Polymorphisms and Atorvastatin Safety and Efficacy: A Meta-analysis. Atorvastatin is the best-selling statin in the market. However, some patients have to reduce drug doses or discontinue atorvastatin therapy mainly due to adverse drug reactions (ADRs). Genetic factors play an important role in the occurrence of ADRs.This study aimed to investigate the association between SLCO1B1 polymorphisms (c.521T>C or c.388A>G) and atorvastatin safety and efficacy.We systematically (...) searched PubMed, Web of Science and Embase to screen relevant studies published before Sep 2018. This meta-analysis was performed to identify the relationship between SLCO1B1 c.521T>C or c.388A>G polymorphisms and atorvastatin-related ADRs by the odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). The relationship of SLCO1B1 polymorphisms and lipid-lowering effects [low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol (TC)] was assessed in pooled data by calculating the mean difference (MD

17. A Multicenter, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Atorvastatin for the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Events in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis (Full text)

A Multicenter, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Atorvastatin for the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Events in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with increased cardiovascular event (CVE) risk. The impact of statins in RA is not established. We assessed whether atorvastatin is superior to placebo for the primary prevention of CVEs in RA patients.A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was designed to detect a 32% CVE risk (...) reduction based on an estimated 1.6% per annum event rate with 80% power at P < 0.05. RA patients age >50 years or with a disease duration of >10 years who did not have clinical atherosclerosis, diabetes, or myopathy received atorvastatin 40 mg daily or matching placebo. The primary end point was a composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke, transient ischemic attack, or any arterial revascularization. Secondary and tertiary end points included plasma lipids and safety.A total

Short-term and long-term effects of a loading dose of atorvastatin before percutaneous coronary intervention on major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with acute coronary syndrome: a meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials Whether a loading dose of atorvastatin (80 mg) can reduce major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) remains controversial. Therefore, we performed this meta-analysis.Randomized controlled trials (RCT) comparing (...) a loading dose of atorvastatin to a control in patients with ACS who underwent PCI were identified through searches of medical literature databases. Risk ratios (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated to compare the primary endpoint. Finally, 13 trials enrolling 22 095 patients were included; of the 22 095 patients, 11 214 (50.7%) received loading doses of 80 mg of atorvastatin.
