Description:
Atorvastatin is a selective, competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase. Atorvastatin lowers blood cholesterol and lipoproteins by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase and cholesterol synthesis in the liver. Atorvastatin also increases the number of hepatic LDL receptors on the cell surface in the liver, which results in increased uptake and catabolism of LDL.
