Synthesis, Crystal Structure and Biological Evaluation of 4, 5, 6, 7-tetrahydropravastatin as HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitor
4, 5, 6, 7-Tetrahydropravastatin and its sodium salt as the hydrogenated derivatives of pravastatin were evaluated as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor in vitro and in vivo, and they exhibited similar antihyperlipidaemic activity to pravastatin. The results could be regarded as a particular case to the reported SARs of statins up to now.
