About LIVALO® (pitavastatin) tablets

New products through research and development

LIVALO is an HMG-CoA (3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-co-enzyme A) reductase inhibitor (statin) developed in Japan and indicated as an adjunctive therapy to diet to reduce elevated total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), apolipoprotein B (Apo B) and triglycerides (TG), and to increase high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) in adult patients with primary hyperlipidemia or mixed dyslipidemia. LIVALO is only minimally metabolized by the liver’s cytochrome P450 enzyme system, which may help reduce its potential for drug-drug interactions mediated by this system.

The efficacy of LIVALO has been evaluated against atorvastatin, simvastatin and pravastatin in patients with primary hyperlipidemia or mixed dyslipidemia. Since its launch in Japan (2003), South Korea (2005), Thailand (2008), China (2009) and the United States (2010), LIVALO has been successfully used to manage cholesterol levels for a range of patients, including the elderly, patients with diabetes and those whose treatment is complicated by concurrent disease and multiple drug regimens.
