Abstract: Methods - Discovery Belux is an open-label, multicentre, randomised, phase IIIb, parallel group study comparing the efficacy of rosuvastatin (RSV) and atorvastatin (ATV) on changes in lipid levels and the achievement of European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) lipid goals. Patients (>= 18 years) with primary hypercholesterolaemia, with a low-density lipoprotein (LDL-C) level > 120 mg/dl (on treatment) or > 135 mg/dl (naive subjects), and with a statin indication, were randomised to receive RSV 10 mg/day or ATV 10 mg/day for 12 weeks. Patients not at goal after 12 weeks and receiving ATV 10 were further switched to RSV 10 mg for another 12 weeks. Patients not at goal with RSV 10 mg were further titrated to RSV 20 mg.
