1. Efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin vs. atorvastatin in lowering LDL cholesterol : A meta-analysis of trials with East Asian populations. (Abstract)

Efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin vs. atorvastatin in lowering LDL cholesterol : A meta-analysis of trials with East Asian populations. The VOYAGER meta-analysis reported on the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)-lowering effect of commonly used statins in Caucasian subjects. As there is limited literature available on the efficacy of statins in Asian populations, the current meta-analysis compared the effects of rosuvastatin and atorvastatin on LDL-C levels in an East Asian (...) population.The MEDLINE, PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science databases were searched for randomized controlled trials comparing lipid-lowering effects of rosuvastatin and atorvastatin in an East Asian population. Data on the study design, participant characteristics, and outcomes were extracted. Odds ratios (OR), weighted mean differences (WMD), or standardized mean differences were calculated using the random-effects model.The meta-analysis comprised 16 randomized controlled trials with 5930

Meta-analysis of rosuvastatin efficacy in prevention of contrast-induced acute kidney injury Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a complication after the intravascular administration of a contrast medium injection. Previous studies have investigated statins as therapy for CIN due to its positive results in the prevention of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI). Nevertheless, the beneficial effects of rosuvastatin pretreatment in preventing CIN in patients with acute coronary (...) syndromes still remain controversial. In this study, we performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the beneficial impact of rosuvastatin in the prevention of CI-AKI in acute coronary syndrome patients.PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane library were searched, for RCTs, updated on January 2018. The method was to evaluate rosuvastatin prior to angiography for the prevention of CI-AKI in patients undergoing coronary angiography, of which the main outcome was the incidence
