The purpose of this study is to investigate additional cholesterol lowering effects in patients with coronary heart disease by giving an investigational drug with a patient's current approved cholesterol lowering medication.
Some nutraceuticals are often advised for their lipid lowering effects. Although many clinical trials have been conducted to assess their efficacy many doubts remain whether they could be considered an effective alternative to statins therapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the lipid lowering effects and the improvement of endothelial dysfunction in patients with hyperlipidemia, treated with a nutraceutical product (Armolipid Plus)
Accumulation of lipid in skeletal and cardiac muscle has been associated with insulin resistance and diabetic cardiomyopathy. In skeletal muscle, lipotoxic damage has been suggested to lead to dysfunction of mitochondria. It remains unknown whether lipotoxicity leads to mitochondrial dysfunction in heart as well, and if so, whether this also leads to cardiomyopathy (failure of the heart). Although it has been shown that lipid lowering agents can improve insulin sensitivity, the...
Lupus nephritis is a severe form of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with active disease in the kidneys. SLE is a complex disease in which the body's own immune system attacks some of the body parts: the skin, the joints, the kidneys, the nervous system, the heart, the lungs and the blood. The cause of SLE is not known. Treatment for SLE usually involves drugs that are designed to block the immune system attacks. When SLE affects the kidneys (nephritis), stronger immune sup...
High blood pressure (hypertension) is an important cause of myocardial infarction and stroke. High blood pressure often occurs in people who are overweight. These people frequently also have abnormal fat and sugar metabolism. The combination of these problems is called the 'metabolic syndrome'. People with hypertension and obesity currently receive the same drug therapy as people with hypertension, but without obesity. Different classes of drugs are thought to be equally ...
To describe the type II diabetes population in primary care with special reference to treatment, other diseases and mortality during the last decade. To test the hypothesis that the type or combination of per oral glucose lowering drugs have different effects on the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetic complications.
The GRADE Study is a pragmatic, unmasked clinical trial that will compare commonly used diabetes medications, when combined with metformin, on glycemia-lowering effectiveness and patient-centered outcomes.
Delineation of the role of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor signalling in the glucose-lowering effect of metformin during meal ingestion in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Atherosclerosis is a progressive disease. Lipid lowering therapy was the standard treatment for patients with coronary artery disease. Studies indicated that coronary artery plaque progression had positive relationship with the plasma cholesterol level, and could be halted or reversed by intensive statin therapy (such as 20-40 mg/d atorvastatin). Ezetimibe plus statin could further lowered blood cholesterol level. Here the investigators hypothesize that same cholesterol lowerin...
This study was designed to assess the effects on coronary artery plaque using aggressive lipid-lowering therapy versus moderate lipid-lowering therapy. A substudy will examine the effect of these treatments on brachial artery vasoactivity.
The purpose of this study is to find out whether taking protease inhibitors (anti-HIV drugs) together with lipid-lowering drugs (drugs which lower the amount of fat in the blood) has an effect on the level of drugs found in the blood compared to when these drugs are taken separately. The three protease inhibitors given in this study are ritonavir, saquinavir, and nelfinavir. The lipid-lowering drugs given are pravastatin, simvastatin, and atorvastatin. Anti-HIV drug th...
The mechanism behind postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) involves many causes including a sympathetic nervous system problem. Blood gases, like carbon dioxide (CO2), have an important effect on sympathetic activation. The purpose of this research study is to determine if higher CO2 levels have any effect in lowering heart rate and reducing POTS symptoms when upright/standing. The investigators are also searching for the ideal CO2 concentration to achieve the most ...
It is now well-accepted that lowering community-level viral load through expansion of antiretroviral therapy (ART) can reduce HIV transmission among people who use drugs. However, achieving durable viral suppression among patients with substance use disorders is a major challenge for providers and health systems. This study aims to adapt and implement an existing mobile health (mHealth) system, A-CHESS (Addiction Comprehensive Health Enhancement Support System) to improve care ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and IOP-lowering efficacy of various AL-6221 formulations in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension
This study will prospectively assess the clinical effect of ab‐interno transluminal viscoelastic delivery and trabeculotomy performed using the OMNI Surgical System in combination with Cataract Extraction on intraocular pressure (IOP) and the use of IOP‐lowering medications in patients with mild‐moderate open angle glaucoma (OAG).
This study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the CyPass Implant for lowering intraocular pressure in patients with glaucoma who undergo cataract surgery.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether lowering of fasting homocysteine concentrations improves vascular function in healthy volunteers, irrespective of the homocysteine-lowering agent.
Cholesterol and blood pressure lowering tablets have been shown to be of benefit in patients with established high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a very common medical condition that can lead to vascular complications i.e. problems with the blood vessels in the body. One way of detecting early changes in these blood vessels as a result of high blood pressure is to measure their compliance/flexibility with a noninvasive technique known as ultrasound and with a simple blo...
Over 30% of American adults have hypertension (HTN) (high blood pressure), and the rate increases considerably with age; 64% of men and 78% of women over 65 have HTN. High blood pressure associated with HTN can force of the blood against artery walls with enough pressure that it can eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease and stroke. HTN is one of the most significant causes of early death worldwide and one of the most preventable causes of death. Many studies r...
Aspirin resistance is the persistent platelet activation, demonstrated by platelet function tests (1). The hypothesis is that:LDL lowering by statin in patients with aspirin resistance can improve the effect of aspirin due to the potential decreasing of cholesterol content in the platelet membranes. Patients and methods:Forty hypercholesterolemic patients with aspirin resistance after 5 days of treatment with aspirin and high LDL and triglycerides

To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of cholesterol-lowering strategies in the United States population. The study used the Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) Policy Model, a state-transition computer simulation model used to obtain forecasts of the public health impact and economic cost of CHD in the United States population.
This study evaluates increased hydration (1.5 L of water daily during 6 weeks) on top of habitual water intake in the lowering of the vasopressin marker copeptin and in the lowering of plasma glucose concentration in adults with signs of low water intake at recruitment (elevated levels of copeptin, high urine osmolality, low urine volume).
A randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled parallel group clinical trial evaluating the effects of acute treatment with a PCSK9 inhibitor (alirocumab) versus placebo on low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in 100 high-risk patients presenting with STEMI and referred for primary PCI. The objective is to determine the effect of acute, rapid lowering of LDL cholesterol with alirocumab added to high dose statin therapy in patients with STEMI undergoing primary PCI. The hypothes...
Adolescents and young adults with youth-onset type 2 diabetes (T2D) are disproportionally impacted by hyperuricemia compared to non-diabetic peers and youth with type 1 diabetes (T1D). In fact, 50% of males with youth-onset T2D have serum uric acid (SUA) greater than 6.8 mg/dl. The investigators also recently demonstrated that higher SUA conferred greater odds of developing hypertension and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) in youth with T2D over 7 years follow-up. Elevated SUA is ...
