ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of resveratrol as an adjuvant therapy in newly diagnosed dyslipidemic patients. In this randomized active-controlled study, dyslipidemic patients(male/female) aged 20-65 years were randomized to receive atorvastatin 10 mg or atorvastatin 10 mg plus resveratrol 1 gram daily for 12 months. Efficacy variables included change inlipid profile (total cholesterol [TC], serum triglycerides [TGA], low-density lipoprotein [LDL] and high-density lipoprotein [HDL]) from baseline and were followed-up for every 3 months. Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) were assessed. A total of 60 dyslipidemicpatients were analyzed (atorvastatin [n=30] andatorvastatin plus resveratrol [n=30]). Resveratrol as an adjuvant withatorvastatin significantly reduced plasma TC, TGA and LDL as compared to atorvastatin monotherapy (p<0.001 for eachparametre). Meanlevels of HDL were significantly higherin atorvastatin plus resveratrol group than atorvastatin (p<0.001). Both the study drugs have similar safety profile, and found well tolerable.
