More than 20,000 patients with hypercholesterolemia who were treated with pitavastatin for up to 2 years, the LDL-C (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol) target rate recommended by the Japanese Atherosclerosis Society (JAS) was achieved by 88.2% of low-risk patients (<160 mg/dL), 82.7% of intermediate-risk patients (<140 mg/dL), 66.5% of high-risk patients (<120 mg/dL), and 50.3% of secondary prevention patients (<100 mg/dL). In patients with low HDL-C, a significant reduction of total cholesterol (TC; -21.0%), LDL-C (-31.3%), and triglyceride (TG) (-6.1%) was seen at 104 weeks- Int J Clin Pract. 2005 Feb;59(2):239-52.
