3. CI-3 Objectives of the Rosuvastatin Clinical Development Program Provide an overall benefit-risk profile demonstrating Greater beneficial effects on key lipid parameters at both the start dose and across the dose-range compared with marketed statins A similar safety profile compared with approved drugs in the statin class A low potential for significant drug-drug interactions

4. CI-4 Rosuvastatin Is a Hydrophilic Statin

5. CI-5 Rosuvastatin Human Pharmacokinetics Absorption Absolute bioavailability = 20.1% Tmax = 3 to 5 hr Distribution Vss = 134.0 L Plasma protein binding = 88% Metabolism Not extensively metabolized Elimination t˝ = 16 to 20 hr 90% in feces, 10% in urine

6. CI-6 The NDA Clinical Program Large international clinical trial program 33 phase I trials 27 phase II/III trials Doses of 5 to 80 mg studied in phase III 12,569 patients in safety database Phase III trial designs Comparisons with placebo, atorvastatin, simvastatin, pravastatin, niacin, fenofibrate Combinations with niacin, fenofibrate, and cholestyramine Open-label extension trials

7. CI-7 Important Features of the Rosuvastatin Clinical Development Program All clinical laboratory samples analyzed at 1 central laboratory in the phase III program Trials were designed to be inclusive No upper age limit for trials For most trials, the upper limit for creatinine was 2.5 mg/dL Women of childbearing potential participated Patients with comorbidities were included provided they were stable

8. CI-8 US Regulatory History (1) Initial NDA submission (June 2001) Proposed dose range of 10 to 80 mg In March 2002 AstraZeneca and Division agreed to Suspend 80-mg development Back-titrate 80-mg dose to 40 mg

9. CI-9 US Regulatory History (2) NDA Action Letter (May 2002) 10-mg, 20-mg, and 40-mg doses approvable Data requested on 600 patients for 20-mg and 40-mg doses each for 24 wk Additional information on renal effects NDA amendment submitted (February 2003) 12,569 patients in final phase II/III integrated database

10. CI-10 Proposed Indications Primary hypercholesterolemia and mixed dyslipidemia Hypertriglyceridemia Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia

11. CI-11 Recommended Dosing of CRESTOR® The recommended starting dose of CRESTOR is 10 mg once daily, with a maximum recommended daily dose of 40 mg A 20-mg start dose is optional for patients with LDL-C > 190 mg/dL and aggressive lipid goals For homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, the recommended starting dose of CRESTOR is 20 mg once daily A 5-mg dose will be made available for patients receiving cyclosporine

12. CI-12 Current Status of CRESTOR® Program Market approvals currently in 24 countries EU, Asia, and the Americas 10- to 40-mg dose range Ongoing trials program ~24,000 patients currently on rosuvastatin in ongoing trials in US and ROW Clinical outcomes trials (18,000 patients) initiated in May 2003
