Patients with Type I Hyperlipoproteinemia (T1HLP) have a rare form of hypertriglyceridemia marked by significant chylomicronemia and recurrent episodes of acute pancreatitis. T1HLP is caus...
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging study to evaluate the safety, including tolerability, of ISIS 681257 and to assess the efficacy of differe...
Purpose: The mechanism of most of the multifactorial chylomicronemia (MCM) remains elusive. In order to decipher the mechanisms involved in the occurrence of this disease, plasma TG lipoly...
The Torcetrapib project was terminated on December 2, 2006 due to safety findings. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the lipid drug torcetrapib/atorvastatin in subjects with a rare g...
Evaluation of the efficacy of rosuvastatin 10mg, rosuvastatin 20mg and pravastatin 40mg in subjects with dysbetalipoproteinemia.
Familial dysbetalipoproteinemia (FD) or Type III hyperlipoproteinemia is closely associated with the ε2ε2 genotype of the common APOE polymorphism although not all ε2 homozygotes develop FD indicat...
A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .
A 9-kDa protein component of VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. It contains a cofactor for LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE and activates several triacylglycerol lipases. The association of Apo C-II with plasma CHYLOMICRONS; VLDL, and HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS is reversible and changes rapidly as a function of triglyceride metabolism. Clinically, Apo C-II deficiency is similar to lipoprotein lipase deficiency (HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I) and is therefore called hyperlipoproteinemia type IB.
A fibric acid derivative used in the treatment of HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE III and severe HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p986)
A group of familial disorders characterized by elevated circulating cholesterol contained in either LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS alone or also in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS (pre-beta lipoproteins).
An inherited condition due to a deficiency of either LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE or APOLIPOPROTEIN C-II (a lipase-activating protein). The lack of lipase activities results in inability to remove CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES from the blood which has a creamy top layer after standing.
Hyperlipidemia - high cholesterol (hypercholesterolaemia)
Hyperlipidemia involves abnormally elevated levels of any or all lipids and/or lipoproteins in the blood. Lipids are transported in a protein capsule, the size of that capsule, or lipoprotein, determines its density. The lipoprotein density and type...
