CKD-391

Chong Kun Dang Pharmaceutical Corp.

Drug Names(s): CKD391, CKD 391, atorvastatin/ezetimibe

Description: CKD-391 is an orally administered fixed dose combination of atorvastatin and ezetimibe.

Atorvastin calcium inhibits HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme required for the synthesis of cholesterol.

Ezetimibe lowers cholesterol by localizing at the brush border of the small intestine to inhibit cholesterol absorption. This mechanism of action makes ezetimibe complementary to statins, which work by inhibiting cholesterol synthesis in the liver.
