Summary of Clinical Use
Pitavastatin is used to treat high cholesterol in adults.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Like other statins, pitavastatin inhibits HMG CoA reductase (HMGCR) activity. As this enzyme is responsible for catalysing the first step of cholesterol synthesis, its inhibition reduces the amount of cholesterol produced.
