Sixteen healthy subjects will be randomized to each of the 3 parallel treatment groups. Eligible subjects will check in to the clinical unit on Day -2 and have 24-hr pharmacokinetic collections on Day -1 and on Day 1. Once the pharmacokinetic parameters of the formulations have been analyzed, doses of GSK2212836 will be selected for further study in Part B. Subjects from Part A will participate in Part B.
Part B is a single blind, randomized, placebo controlled study that will consist of a 2-week repeat dose period with 3 dose levels and one dose of the marketed formulation of GSK2212836. Subjects will check in to the clinical unit on Day -3; will participate in a test meal on Day -2 and have 24-hr baseline pharmacokinetic profiles on Day -1 and Day 1. Subjects will be released from the clinic on Day 2, and return for daily dosing on Days 3 through 12. On Day 6, they will also have a brief outpatient visit. Subjects will check into the clinic again on the evening of Day 12, and on Day 13 they will again have 24-hr pharmacokinetic profiles collected. Subjects will be released from the clinical research unit on Day 14, following a test meal, triglyceride sampling and check-out assessments, and will be released from the study 5-10 days later after completing a follow up visit.

Fasting and postprandial hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) depends on increased production of intestinal triglyceride rich lipoproteins in patients with isolated fasting hypertriglyceridemia. ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if implitapide is effective in lowering triglyceride (TG) levels in patients with Fredrickson Type I or V hypertriglyceridemia where the maximum ...
To study the effect of genes on lipid-lowering drug treatment in hypertriglyceridemia.
The purpose of the study is to compare the efficacy and tolerability of fenofibrate 160 mg and niacin 1500 mg in patients with hypertriglyceridemia and low HDL-cholesterol. The primary end...
The goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of replacing some refined starches and added sugars with a combination of egg protein and unsaturated fatty acids on markers of cardiometa...
Elevated triglycerides are independently associated with increased atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk. Hypertriglyceridemia is often a polygenic condition that can be affected by a myriad of ...
Hypertriglyceridemia thalassemia syndrome is a rare entity with an unknown pathogenetic link.
Hypertriglyceridemia is the third most common cause of acute pancreatitis. Among the causes that lead to secondary hypertriglyceridemia, the use of contraceptive agents is the main reason to be assess...
There is evidence that increasing severity of hypertriglyceridemia increases the risk of acute pancreatitis. There is a debate about superiority of treatment methods and previous works have specifical...
Two novel variants (p.Arg270Gly and p.Asp308Glyfs*3) in the LPL gene have recently been identified in subjects with hypertriglyceridemia (HTG). In this study, we investigated clinical and genetic feat...
A condition of elevated levels of TRIGLYCERIDES in the blood.
A fibric acid derivative used in the treatment of HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE III and severe HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p986)
Congenital disorders, usually autosomal recessive, characterized by severe generalized lack of ADIPOSE TISSUE, extreme INSULIN RESISTANCE, and HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA.
A hypertriglyceridemia disorder, often with autosomal dominant inheritance. It is characterized by the persistent elevations of plasma TRIGLYCERIDES, endogenously synthesized and contained predominantly in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS (pre-beta lipoproteins). In contrast, the plasma CHOLESTEROL and PHOSPHOLIPIDS usually remain within normal limits.
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...
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...
