Elevated levels of plasma cholesterol represent a major risk for cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Statins are a class of drugs used in the prevention of CVD. They act as competitive inhibitors of the enzyme involved in the early, rate-determining step of cholesterol biosynthetic pathway. Currently, there are 6 statins available in the United States - atorvastatin, fluvastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, rosuvastatin and simvastatin. Lovastatin, pravastatin and simvastatin are fungus-derived; a
