Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A condition with abnormally high levels of CHOLESTEROL in the blood. It is defined as a cholesterol value exceeding the 95th percentile for the population.
An oily liquid extracted from the seeds of the safflower, Carthamus tinctorius. It is used as a dietary supplement in the management of HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA. It is used also in cooking, as a salad oil, and as a vehicle for medicines, paints, varnishes, etc. (Dorland, 28th ed & Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
High molecular weight polysaccharides present in the cell walls of all plants. Pectins cement cell walls together. They are used as emulsifiers and stabilizers in the food industry. They have been tried for a variety of therapeutic uses including as antidiarrheals, where they are now generally considered ineffective, and in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia.
A lipoprotein-associated PHOSPHOLIPASE A2 which modulates the action of PLATELET ACTIVATING FACTOR by hydrolyzing the SN-2 ester bond to yield the biologically inactive lyso-platelet-activating factor. It has specificity for phospholipid substrates with short-chain residues at the SN-2 position, but inactive against long-chain phospholipids. Deficiency in this enzyme is associated with many diseases including ASTHMA, and HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of atorvastatin 10 mg and ezetimibe 10 mg coadministration in Japanese patients with hypercholesterolemia whose Low-density...
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of the study drug, AEGR-733 alone and in combination with the medication, atorvastatin (Lipitor), on cholesterol in volunteers with m...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of atorvastatin generic product with reference drug.
The present study is assessing the efficacy and safety of AVE5530 (25mg and 50mg) co-administered with all approved doses of atorvastatin in a double-blind comparison with placebo, AVE5530...
A 12 week clinical trial in patients 65 years of age and older with hypercholesterolemia at high risk for coronary heart disease to study the effects of atorvastatin and ezetimibe given in...
Background Serum proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin 9 (PCSK9) binds to low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptors, increasing the degradation of LDL receptors and reducing the rate at which LDL chole...
Statins are normally the first-line therapy for hypercholesterolemia (HC); however, the lipid-lowering response shows high interindividual variation. We investigated the effect of four polymorphisms i...
Safety and Efficacy of Ezetimibe/Simvastatin Combination Versus Atorvastatin Alone in Adults ≥65 Years of Age With Hypercholesterolemia and With or at Moderately High/High Risk for Coronary Heart Disease (the VYTELD Study).
Higher than 80% of coronary heart disease-related mortality occurs in patients ≥65 years of age. Guidelines recommend low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol targets for these at-risk patients; ho...
Atorvastatin, an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase, widely used in treatment of hypercholesterolemia, slows the progression of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease...
BACKGROUND: Atorvastatin is commonly used to reduce cholesterol. Atorvastatin acid is converted to its corresponding lactone form spontaneously or via glucuronidation mediated by uridine diphosphate g...
