Preliminary Study of Safety and Efficacy of Policosanol

Lay Language Summary: High cholesterol levels are common in persons with HIV infection. However, conventional cholesterol-lowering medications may have harmful side effects when given to HIV-infected persons. Therefore, we plan to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of policosanol, a dietary supplement derived from sugar cane that has cholesterol-lowering properties, to lower cholesterol levels in persons with HIV infection. We hypothesize that policosanol will lower level...


Alirocumab and Reverse Cholesterol Transport

Alirocumab is an injectable treatment for elevated blood cholesterol. The hypothesis of this study is that it also increases cholesterol excretion from the body into the stool, a process sometimes called reverse cholesterol transport. A cholesterol metabolic study will be done before and after 6 weeks of alirocumab treatment. If alirocumab increases reverse cholesterol transport, it is possible that this action provides additional protection from cardiovascular disease.

BMS Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT) Study

Effect of Diabetes Mellitus on Cholesterol Metabolism

HMG CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) are commonly used to treat high cholesterol (HC) in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Several studies have shown benefits of statin among patients of type 2 DM, however, no such data is available for patients with type 1 DM. It is known from studies on cholesterol metabolism using surrogate markers that patients with type 1 DM have higher cholesterol absorption compared to normals and those with type 2 DM have higher choleste...

Effect of Dietary Cholesterol on Plasma Lipids

The Physicians Committee is carrying out a research study to improve the investigator's understanding and expand the literature to quantify the effect of foods on blood cholesterol. This study will measure changes in low density lipoprotein (LDL) concentration, sometimes called "bad cholesterol," over 2 study periods of 4 weeks each, with 1 rest week in between. Approximately 50 subjects will participate in this study.

Comparison of Low and High Phytosterol Diets With Respect to Cholesterol Metabolism

The objective of this study is to compare cholesterol absorption and metabolism after feeding diets naturally low or high in phytosterols. All meals will be prepared in a metabolic kitchen and analyzed for phytosterols. In a randomized crossover design a group of up to 25 healthy subjects will consume diets containing either 100 mg/day or 600 mg/day phytosterols for 4 weeks. At the end of each dietary period percent cholesterol absorption, fecal cholesterol excretion and LDL...

Study of High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C)-Raising Mechanism of Rosuvastatin (CRESTOR™) by Quantifying the Key Steps of Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT)

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of treatment with rosuvastatin on the capacity of plasma to promote cholesterol efflux, which is the first and likely rate limiting step in reverse cholesterol transport.

Egg Cholesterol Consumption, Blood Cholesterol and Skeletal Muscle Hypertrophy

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of dietary cholesterol administered as whole egg or egg white (control)on muscle mass gain with resistance training in a young old population of men and women (age 50-69). It is hypothesized that dietary cholesterol will be significantly associated to muscle mass gain.

Effect of Lapaquistat Acetate on Blood Cholesterol Levels in Subjects With Elevated Cholesterol

The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with elevated cholesterol, but not taking any other lipid medication, could lower their cholesterol with administration of lapaquistat acetate, once daily (QD).

Effects of a Supplement Derived From Palm Oil on Cholesterol Levels in the Blood

Elevated blood cholesterol, and particularly LDL cholesterol, is a risk factor for heart disease. Tocotrienols are naturally-occurring compounds in foods that may have beneficial effects on blood cholesterol. Tocotrienols are members of the vitamin E family, and are found in barley, oats, rye, coconut oil and rice bran oil, but the richest source of tocotrienols is palm oil. Certain of these tocotrienols have been shown to be effective in lowering LDL (or 'bad') cholesterol, wi...

Clinical Study of Three Plus Two Type Early Diagnosis of Pulmonary Nodules in Medical Internet of Things

Medical The Internet of Things (IoT), a recent breakthrough in communication technology, could be helpful in improving health care delivery and saving medical costs, but regarding pulmonary nodule management it is still at the basic understanding. Investigators adopt "Internet of things medical three plus two type pulmonary nodule diagnosis" which chun-xue Bai put forward, used a developed a mobile phone-based IoT (mIoT) platform and initiated a randomized, multicenter, control...

Dyslipidemia Study Investigating The Increase In "Good Cholesterol"

An eight week comparison of the investigational drug GW590735, placebo, and the marketed drug fenofibrate intended to increase the levels of "good cholesterol" and decrease levels of "bad cholesterol" in healthy patients with low levels of good cholesterol and high levels of bad cholesterol.

The Low HDL On Six Weeks Statin Therapy (LOW) Study

Abnormal blood cholesterol levels increase the risk of developing, or dying from heart disease. It is well recognised that if "harmful" LDL cholesterol is high, and "protective" HDL cholesterol is low, this risk is increased. Drugs called statins are routinely used in patients with heart disease, are well tolerated, and decrease the harmful LDL cholesterol levels. However, statins only increase protective HDL cholesterol to a small extent. Some patients may thus benefit from ad...

Effect of a Treatment With a Nutraceutical Combination on Sub-optimal LDL Cholesterol Levels

High cholesterol is one of the major controllable risk factor for coronary heart disease. It is well demonstrated that drugs that reduce the intestinal absorption of cholesterol or block the synthesis of cholesterol or the association of both, can reduce cholesterol and reduce rate of cardiovascular events. The trial will evaluate natural alternative to this drug approach testing the effects of a combination of phytosterol, a nutritional that reduce cholesterol absorption, and ...

Improving Metabolism With HDL Cholesterol

High levels of good cholesterol (HDL) in our blood decreases our chance of having a heart attack. This relates in part to the role good cholesterol plays in reducing build up of fat in the arteries. However, good cholesterol has many other protective effects. We have recently identified three enzymes (proteins) activated by HDL in cells lining the blood vessels, which may be responsible for some of HDL’s protective actions.

A Study Of The Efficacy Of Atorvastatin In Lowering Cholesterol In Latin American Patients With High Cholesterol

The purpose of this study is to determine the percentage of patients who would reach a cholesterol goal after atorvastatin treatment.

GPur- Luminating Oral Cholesterol Kinetics Pilot Study

In healthy subjects not receiving or requiring lipid lowering therapy and who do not have diabetes, the use of clinoptilolite (GPUR) will result in a reduction of absorbed dietary cholesterol observed over 6 days of therapy.

Interstitial Fluid in the Development of Cardiovascular Disease

At a given level of serum cholesterol, patients with T2D have an increased risk of developing atherosclerosis compared with nondiabetic subjects. In a previous study we showed that the interstitial fluid-to-serum gradient of LDL and VLDL cholesterol is reduced in T2D patients compared with healthy controls. This was not found for HDL cholesterol. However, the cholesterol transporting function of HDL particles from interstitial fluid from patients with T2D were lower than in he...

Evaluation of Statin Mechanism Preventing Cardiovascular Disease by Post-hoc Analysis of Treating to New Targets Study

Epidemiological studies have shown that serum cholesterol level is correlated with Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk, and that Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk increases with increasing LDL cholesterol levels. Fortunately, it has been confirmed that cholesterol-lowering therapy is effective in preventing Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), and cholesterol lowering with statin therapy is a primary strategy in the prevention of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Despite the fact that stati...
