General description

Cerivastatin sodium salt hydrate belongs to the statin class of lipid lowering agents. It helps in decreasing MAP kinase activation, blocking AP-1 (activator protein-1) and NF-kB (nuclear factor-kB ) binding activity, inhibiting inflammatory responses and ameliorated renal damage. It also lowers cholesterol. It is metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP)3A4 and (CYP)2C8. Cerivastatin sodium salt hydrate is linked to rhabdomyolysis.


Cerivastatin sodium salt hydrate has been used as a supplement in cell culture.

Cerivastatin sodium salt hydrate may be used in cell signaling studies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Accumulated macrophages in atherosclerotic plaques result in plaque rupture and thrombus formation. Cerivastatin suppresses the growth of macrophages and decreases the expression of matrix metalloproteinases and tissue factor molecules, thus reduces acute coronary events.

Cerivastatin sodium is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor. HMG-CoA is a key enzyme in the production of cholesterol.
