  • Rosuvastatin is a potent competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase, the rate-limiting enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway and the target of the statin class of cholesterol-lowering drugs.
  • Rosuvastatin is antilipemic and is used to reduce plasma cholesterol levels and prevent cardiovascular disease. Formulations containing rosuvastatin reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and C-reactive protein and increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in humans.
  • Shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antithrombotic and insulin sensitizing properties.
  • Identified as a potential inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2, responsible for COVID-19.
