Aim. To analyze the world pharmaceutical market of combined drugs of acetylsalicylic acid with statin.

Materials and methods. The study was conducted on the basis of the lists of medicines registered in 28 countries of the European Union, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, the Commonwealth of Independent States (Ukraine, Belarus, Russian Federation, Kazakhstan), Egypt, Morocco, Syria, India, Australia, Canada, the USA and the African continent. The methods of scientific analysis, in particular methods of grouping and comparison, marketing research were used in this work analysis, synthesis and comparison.

Results. Combined drugs of acetylsalicylic acid with statin are registered in Ukraine, Austria, Spain, India, Portugal, Slovenia, France and the United States. They differ in trade names and contain different active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) from the group of statins in different doses. Some medicines are additionally combined with antihypertensive drugs. The largest number of combined drugs of acetylsalicylic acid with atorvastatin has been registered in India. They are produced by the Indian manufacturers in the form of capsules (17 drugs) and tablets (14 drugs) for 10 pieces in a pack. The composition of 64.52 % of the drugs includes 75 mg of acetylsalicylic acid and 10 mg of atorvastatin. The ratio of APIs of 150 mg / 10 mg occurs 8 times, and only 3 drugs has the ratio of 150 mg / 20 mg.

Conclusions. The results of the marketing research have allowed us to analyze the structure of the range of drugs of acetylsalicylic acid with statins registered in Ukraine, Austria, Spain, India, Portugal, Slovenia, France and the USA. Substances from the group of statins combined with acetylsalicylic acid have been found. The study of the assortment of drugs of acetylsalicylic acid with atorvastatin at the Indian market has been conducted.
