Dislipor - Dislipor is a lipid-lowering drugs of the statin group. An inhibition of HMG-CoA reductase leads to a series of sequential reactions that result in reduced intracellular cholesterol content and it is a compensatory increase in activity of LDL receptors and thus accelerate the catabolism of LDL cholesterol.
The lipid-lowering effect of statins is associated with lower levels of total cholesterol by LDL-C. The reduction in LDL cholesterol is dose-dependent and is not linear, but exponential. The inhibitory effect of Dislipor on HMG-CoA reductase by about 70% determined by the activity of its circulating metabolites.
Statins do not affect the activity of lipoprotein lipase and hepatic, no significant effect on the synthesis and catabolism of free fatty acids, so their effect on triglycerides and again vicariously through their main effects on reducing LDL-C.
In addition to lipid-lowering actions, statins have beneficial effects in endothelial dysfunction (pre-clinical sign of early atherosclerosis) in the vascular wall, the state of atheroma, improves blood rheology, have antioxidant, antiproliferative properties.
Dislipor lowers cholesterol levels in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, which is usually not amenable to therapy with lipid-lowering agents.
Reduce the amount of cholesterol in blood. Slow the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening) of the arteries that nourish the heart, causing so-called coronary heart disease (CHD). Reduce the development of new atherosclerosis. It is indicated:As an adjunct to diet to reduce elevated total-C, LDL-C, apo B, and TG levels and to increase HDL-C in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia (heterozygous familial and nonfamilial) and mixed dyslipidemia (Fredrickson Types IIa and IIb);As an adjunct to diet for the treatment of patients with elevated serum TG levels (Fredrickson Type IV);.For the treatment of patients with primary dysbetalipoproteinemia (Fredrickson Type III) who do not respond adequately to diet;.To reduce total-C and LDL-C in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia as an adjunct to other lipid-lowering treatments (e.g., LDL apheresis) or if such treatments are unavailable;.As an adjunct to diet to reduce total-C, LDL-C, and apo B levels in boys and postmenarchal girls, 10 to 17 years of age, with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia if after an adequate trial of diet therapy the following findings are present: a. LDL-C remains ? 190 mg/dL orb. LDL-C remains ? 160 mg/dL and: there is a positive family history of premature cardiovascular disease ortwo or more other CVD risk factors are present in the pediatric patient.
