Comparison of High-dose Rosuvastatin Versus Low-dose Rosuvastatin Plus Ezetimibe on Carotid Plaque Inflammation in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome

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...

Evaluating the Tolerability and Effects of Berberine on Major Metabolic Biomarkers: A Pilot Study

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...

Bariatric Surgery and LDL Cholesterol

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...

Effect of n-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation in Hyperlipidemic Patients Taking Statins

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...

Effect of Cholesterol Level on Postoperative Acute Kidney Injury of Non-cardiac Surgeries

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.

The Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Multiple Subcutaneous Injections of SHR-1209 in Subjects With Hyperlipidemia

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...

Oat and Cholesterol

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

Investigating the Production of Lipoproteins and Acetyl-CoA During a Ketogenic Diet

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.

Simvastatin in Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

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...

The DEtermining Statin Intolerance FOr Rosuvastatin (DESIFOR) Trial
