This study intends to evaluate the relationship between meibomitis and statin use. Meibomitis is the predominant cause of evaporative dry eye. Higher cholesterol levels were noted in patients with meibomitis when compared to controls without meibomitis. We would like to investigate the effect of statin use on meibomitis among patients with dyslipidemia.
This study is a multicenter, randomized, open-label, parallel, phase IV trial. The purpose of this study efficacy and safety of combination therapy of moderate-intensity statin and ezetimibe compared to high-intensity statin.
Patients with acute coronary syndrome (MI, NSTEMI, USAP) will be included. They will be screened for statin intolernace for 6 months.
Traditional randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have provided extremely valuable information on medical therapies and procedures that have changed the way heart diseases are treated. However, despite these contributions, traditional RCTs are costly, the findings may not be applicable to patients unlike those in the study, and the use of trial findings may be infrequent. These...
Hypertension and dyslipidemia are very prevalent diseases in general population, and the prevalence is keep increasing especially on population with advanced age. Both diseases are major risk factor of cardiovascular disease, and many complication could be induced if not managed properly. Also, these diseases need consistent medication for long time, so the compliance to th...
The rationale of this research is that deep phenotyping of individuals at the extremes of cholesterol efflux will identify key determinants of efflux that are potential novel therapeutic targets to prevent or reverse Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD). The investigators propose to carry out the objective by studying participants at extreme low and high cholester...
Combination therapy of ezetimibe with a low-dose statin is occasionally used to avoid statin-related side effects in clinical practice among patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. This approach is equivalent to high-dose statin therapy to decrease LDL cholesterol level by >50%, allowing such patients to achieve LDL cholesterol target. However, it remains unce...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the ability of a combination of plant extracts (BSL_EP025) to reduce the levels of LDL-cholesterol and oxidized LDL-cholesterol in individuals with LDL-cholesterol levels between 100 and 190 mg/dL.
The aim of the present study is to evaluate the ability of Bifidobacterium BSL_PS404 in reducing LDL-cholesterol levels in healthy individuals.
Berberine is a dietary supplement that comes from the roots, stems, and bark of various plants and has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. It may help lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar, and reduce inflammation.Very few studies have been done in the United States to show how berberine effects cholesterol and blood sugar. This study is looking to see h...
Background: Observational studies have shown that gastric bypass is superior to sleeve gastrectomy in terms of LDL cholesterol improvement. If these results are confirmed in randomized controlled trials, pre-surgical LDL cholesterol status should be a point to consider in the surgical procedure election. Objective: The primary objective is to compare 1-year L...
Epidemiological and clinical evidence suggests that high-dose intake of long-chain n-3 fatty acids have a favorable role in altering blood TG and non-HDL cholesterol when combined with statins in hyperlipidemic patients. Their efficacy in altering low density lipoprotein cholesterol particle size and concentration is yet to be confirmed. This study evaluates the effects of...
Preoperative serum cholesterol level may influence occurrence of postoperative acute kidney injury of cardiac surgeries. However, the effect of Preoperative serum cholesterol level for non cardiac surgery remains unknown. This study aimed to explore the effect in non-cardiac surgical population.
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo- controlled phaseⅠb/Ⅱclinical study. Totally 108 subjects are planned to enrolled with 36 subjects in three low-dose groups (group 1, group 2 and group 3) and 72 subjects in three high-dose groups (group 4, group 5, and group 6).12 subjects with hyperlipidemia who received statin stable treatment for more than 28 days are enro...
The primary objective is to assess the effect of an oat ingredient provided over 4 weeks on serum LDL cholesterol in men and women with elevated LDL-cholesterol compared to a placebo. Secondary endpoints are fasting serum total- and HDL-cholesterol, non-HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, insulin, glycated albumin, HOMA-IR and Framingham risk score
This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of low-dose rosuvastatin (10 mg) in the 4 statin benefit groups requiring high- or moderate-intensity statin therapy according to the 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guideline in Korean population.
The purpose of this study is to understand how the reduction in dietary carbohydrates in a very-low carbohydrate ketogenic diet impacts the synthesis of cholesterol, fatty acid, and ketones, and the turnover rate of VLDL and chylomicron particles.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which is a common cause of disability in young people. It is thought to be an autoimmune condition, where the body's immune system begins to attack itself. The cause of MS is unknown but is thought to be a mix of genetic and environmental factors. There are treatments available for early stages of MS, but the later stage k...
This study will enroll patients who previously were not able to tolerate being on a statin medication due to muscle-related side effects. Research has shown that many people who have muscle symptoms on statin therapy do not experience the same side effects if they try it again later. This study is part of a larger effort to: - See how common it is for patients to still ...
A Study of SCH 58235 (Ezetimibe) When Added to Ongoing Therapy With a Statin in Participants With Primary Hypercholesterolemia, Known Coronary Heart Disease, or Multiple Cardiovascular Risk Factors (P02173)
This is a study to evaluate the lipid-altering efficacy, safety, and tolerability of ezetimibe when added to ongoing therapy with an 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitor (statin) in participants with primary hypercholesterolemia, multiple cardiovascular risk factors, or known coronary heart disease (CHD) or CHD-equivalent disease. The statin ...
A Multi-center, Randomized, Double-blind, Parallel Phase Ⅳ Study to Explore the Efficacy of Statin/Choline Fenofibrate Combination Therapy vs Statin Monotherapy in Patients With Inadequately Controlled TG Despite Receiving Statin Monotherapy
The study aims to estimate the effect of atorvastatin on muscular symptom intensity in coronary patients with subjective statin-associated muscle symptoms (SAMS) and to determine the association with blood levels of atorvastatin and its metabolites, to obtain an objective marker for true SAMS. A randomized study will include 80 coronary patients with SAMS during ongoing ato...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of adding beta-glucan (1.5 g, 3 g or 6 g daily) administered three times a day (TID) in divided doses, to atorvastatin (10 mg - 20 mg) once a day or an equivalent dose of another statin on heart disease lipid risk factors.
The Bean Study will examine the effects of consuming varying doses of canned mixed beans on blood cholesterol levels in healthy adults with elevated blood cholesterol levels.
Patients with familial dysbetalipoproteinemia (FD) have increased triglycerides, non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C), beta VLDL, premature atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. They also have a delayed postprandial triglyceride and chylomicron (CM) remnant clearance. Postprandial hypertriglyceridemia is associated with increased vascular risk. Althoug...
