Lovastatin

Lovastatin is an antihyperlipidemic agent to treat high blood cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Recent studies suggest that statins may have potential as novel treatments for diverse conditions, ranging from sepsis and inflammatory diseases to chronic wounds and bone fractures.

Pronunciation

(LOE va sta tin)

Other Names

Altoprev

Drug Class

HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitor, Antihyperlipidemic, Cardiovascular agent

Mechanism of Action:

Lovastatin is a cholesterol lowering agent and it is rapidly hydrolyzed to beta-hydroxyacid which is an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase. It prevents the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate which is rate limiting step in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.

Statins exert their anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the release of C-reactive peptide, chemokines, cytokines and adhesion molecules, which may make them a powerful addition to the dermatologic anti-inflammatory medication arsenal. Along with reducing inflammation, statins have the potential to heal chronic wounds by decreasing farnesyl pyrophosphate, facilitating vascular relaxation, promoting neovascularization and reducing bacterial load. A better understanding of their effects at the cellular and molecular level in skin is necessary for their future use.
