AstraZeneca Encourages Atherosclerosis Education Among High Risk Patients During American Heart Month

A doctor may recommend CRESTOR ® (rosuvastatin calcium) when diet and exercise alone are not enough. In a clinical trial versus Lipitor ® (atorvastatin calcium), CRESTOR got more high-risk patients' LDL (bad) cholesterol to a goal of under 100 mg/dL.** In adults, CRESTOR, along with diet, is FDA approved to lower high cholesterol and slow plaque buildup in arteries as part of a treatment plan to lower cholesterol to goal. CRESTOR is not right for everyone, including anyone who is nursing, pregnant or may become pregnant, has liver problems, or has had an allergic reaction to CRESTOR. Please see additional Important Safety Information below.

*Based on an online survey among 2487 US adults (each of the following markets: Connecticut, 305; Florida, 301; Indiana, 306; Mississippi, 361; North Carolina, 305; Pennsylvania, 302; Texas, 300; Washington DC, 307) ages 18 and older; conducted August 31-September 9, 2012. 

**In high-risk patients, per Treatment Guidelines, LDL (bad) cholesterol goal is <100 mg/dL.
