The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential effects of ER niacin/laropiprant, ER niacin, laropiprant, and placebo over the course of seven days on urinary levels of a metabolite...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential effects of ER niacin/laropiprant, ER niacin, laropiprant, and placebo over the course of seven days on urinary levels of a specific ...
This study will evaluate the efficacy of laropiprant (LRPT) to reduce flushing symptoms beyond 6 months and will measure the impact of withdrawal of laropiprant in patients following 20 we...
This is a 12-week clinical trial in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia or mixed hyperlipidemia, studying the effects of coadministered MK0524B on lipids. There will be 6 scheduled...
This study will evaluate the definitive bioequivalence of tablets of MK0524A (1000 mg Extended Release (ER) Niacin/ 20 mg laropiprant) from two sources.
The role of niacin's metabolite, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), in DNA repair via base-excision repair pathway is well documented. We evaluated if niacin deficiency results in genetic instab...
Niacin as an adjunct to statin treatment to reduce cardiovascular risk is questioned.
NAD is essential for redox reactions in energy metabolism and necessary for DNA repair and epigenetic modification. Humans require sufficient amounts of dietary niacin (nicotinic acid, nicotinamide, a...
To determine neuroprotective effects and mechanism of the combination therapy of niacin and selenium in cardiac arrest rats.
Humans and animals can be exposed to different chemical forms of mercury (Hg) in the environment. For example, methylmercury (MeHg)-contaminated fish is part of the basic diet of the riparian populati...
A disease due to deficiency of NIACIN, a B-complex vitamin, or its precursor TRYPTOPHAN. It is characterized by scaly DERMATITIS which is often associated with DIARRHEA and DEMENTIA (the three D's).
A water-soluble vitamin of the B complex occurring in various animal and plant tissues. It is required by the body for the formation of coenzymes NAD and NADP. It has PELLAGRA-curative, vasodilating, and antilipemic properties.
2-, 3-, or 4-Pyridinecarboxylic acids. Pyridine derivatives substituted with a carboxy group at the 2-, 3-, or 4-position. The 3-carboxy derivative (NIACIN) is active as a vitamin.
An essential amino acid that is necessary for normal growth in infants and for NITROGEN balance in adults. It is a precursor of INDOLE ALKALOIDS in plants. It is a precursor of SEROTONIN (hence its use as an antidepressant and sleep aid). It can be a precursor to NIACIN, albeit inefficiently, in mammals.
An autosomal recessive disorder due to defective absorption of NEUTRAL AMINO ACIDS by both the intestine and the PROXIMAL RENAL TUBULES. The abnormal urinary loss of TRYPTOPHAN, a precursor of NIACIN, leads to a NICOTINAMIDE deficiency, PELLAGRA-like light-sensitive rash, CEREBELLAR ATAXIA, emotional instability, and aminoaciduria. Mutations involve the neurotransmitter transporter gene SLC6A19.
