The U.S. Consumer group Public Citizen has submitted a petition to the FDA recommending that Crestor® be removed from the marketplace. This comes as 29 patients who had taken AstraZeneca Plc's drug Crestor® developed kidney damage. FDA records indicate that at least 25 patients have been diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis following use of Crestor®, with 11 of those patients reporting the condition in a relatively short period between late February 2004 and early May 2004.
Crestor® (rosuvastatin calcium) is a cholesterol reducing drug part of a class of pharmaceuticals called "statins." Statins have been associated with occurrences of Rhabdomyolysis, but significantly more occurrences have been reported that are associated with the use of Crestor®.
