The experiment was carried out on mature Wistar male rats. The animals from experimental group I received Atorvastatin in the dose 0.28 mg/24 h for 3 weeks. Experimental group II received 20% ethanol ad libitum apart from Atorvastatin. Ultrastructural examinations of pancreatic exocrine cells showed the stimulation of secretory processes in cells of animals receiving Atorvastatin and considerable damage of cell organelles in experimental group II, more intense than in the pancreas of control animals which drank ethanol.
