DESCRIPTION

Cerivastatin sodium is sodium [S-[ R*, S-( E)] -7-[ 4-( 4-b fluorophenyl)-5-methoxymethyl)- 2,6bis( l-met ylethyl) 3-pyridinyll-3,5-dihydroxy+ heptenoate. The empirical formula for cerivastatin sodium is C26 H 33FN05Na and its molecular weight is 481.5.

Cerivastatin sodium is a white to off-white hygroscopic amorphous powder that is soluble in water, methanol, and ethanol, and very slightly soluble in acetone.

Cerivastatin sodium is an entirety synthetic, enantiomeritally pure inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3- methylglutatyl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase. HMG-CoA reductase catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate, which is an early and rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.

BAYCOL (cerivastatin sodium tablets) is supplied as tablets containing 0.2 or 0.4 mg of cerivastatin sodium, for oral administration. Active Ingredient: cerivastatin sodium. Inactive Ingredients: mannitol, magnesium stearate, sodium hydroxide, crospovidone, povidone, iron oxide yellow, methylhydroxypropylcellulose, polyethylene glycol, and titanium dioxide.
