    Impact of Rosuvastatin on Bone Mineral Density
    Impact of Rosuvastatin on Bone Mineral Density Figure 2. In a trial that randomly assigned HIV-positive adults to take rosuvastatin or placebo (a dummy pill), people taking rosuvastatin for 48 weeks gained bone mineral density in the total hip and trochanter, while people taking placebo lost bone mineral density at these sites.
