2. A possible correlation between oxidative stress in hypercholesterolemic patients taking niacin to clinical hypercholesterolemia parameters is possible.
3. Using a novel biomarker will enable a precise detection of the change in the oxidative stress in hypercholesterolemic patients.

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 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 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 study will evaluate the definitive bioequivalence of tablets of MK0524A (1000 mg Extended Release (ER) Niacin/ 20 mg laropiprant) from two sources.
Hypercholesterolemia is one of the most important contributors to atherosclerosis. Whether hypercholesterolemia also affects the retinal microcirculation is unclear.
Familial hypercholesterolemia is a frequent genetic disease associated with a high lifetime risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Statins are the cornerstone of treatment of familial hypercholesterole...
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...
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).
An allylamine derivative that binds BILE ACIDS in the intestine and is used as an ANTICHOLESTEREMIC AGENT in the treatment of HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.
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.
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.
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
