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.


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.

Lipoprotein Turnover on Low- and High-MUFA Portfolio Diets

Low and very low carbohydrate diets, such as the Atkins' Diet, have recently gained attention for their potential health benefits from weight loss and have gained some scientific support from a growing number of studies. Benefits have been noted in relation to raised "good" cholesterol, lower "bad" cholesterol and triglycerides. Other studies have shown an advantage in substituting vegetable fat for carbohydrate in insulin resistant individuals and in some instances in type 2 ...


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...

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...

Lipids Profile in Subclinical Hypothyroidism

Overt hypothyroidism is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) as indicated by hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and increased low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. Mild hypothyroidism, also called subclinical hypothyroidism [SH] is highly prevalent in elderly subjects, especially in women older than 50 years of age. Whether SH is related as a risk for premature CVD is controversial. It was shown that SH is associated with elevated lipid...

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...

High-density Lipoprotein (HDL) Cholesterol in Women Taking Tibolone

Tibolone (Livial) has been shown in previous studies to lower HDL cholesterol by up to 40%. This study aims to study the effects of fenofibrate on HDL and subfractions in women taking tibolone.

From Research to Practice - Lipid Management for Low HDL-Cholesterol

The overall purpose of this project is to improve the clinical outcomes of veterans with ischemic heart disease (IHD) through implementation of evidence-based lipid management, with a particular focus on veterans whose primary lipid abnormality is a low level of HDL-cholesterol (the �good� cholesterol).

The Effects of ProAlgaZyme on HDL Cholesterol in Individuals With Metabolic Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of ProAlgaZyme in increasing levels of HDL 'good' cholesterol and decreasing total cholesterol and C-reactive protein in patients with Metabolic Syndrome.

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.

Effects of a Supplement Derived From Palm Oil on Cholesterol Levels and Chinese Red Yeast Rice in the Blood

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of a palm-oil derived tocotrienol (TRF) supplement or Chinese red yeast rice (CRYR) individually and in combination on blood cholesterol, and particularly LDL cholesterol, in individuals who have either elevated or normal cholesterol levels. 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...

Endocrine Treatment Alone for Elderly Patients With Estrogen Receptor Positive Operable Breast Cancer and Low Recurrence Score

Multiple neoadjuvant endocrine trials demonstrate that women with good prognosis tumors can be identified. A new standard of care needs to be defined for elderly women with good prognosis ER+ tumors, since these women may benefit from endocrine therapy alone to treat their cancer without compromising local and distant control. The investigators hypothesize that endocrine therapy alone provides adequate local and systemic control of breast cancer in a subpopulation of women 75 ...

Early Vascular Wall Changes by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Metabolic Syndrome Versus Metabolically Normal Pre-Menopausal Women: A Pilot Study

The purpose of this study is to compare the vascular permeability of blood vessel walls (of the carotid artery) in pre-menopausal women who have metabolic syndrome (syndrome of having at least 3/5 following features- increased abdominal fat, low good cholesterol (HDL-C), elevated fasting blood fats (triglycerides), elevated blood pressure, an elevated fasting glucose) versus those women who are normal weight and with normal cholesterol, blood fats, blood pressure, and blood sug...

Ezetimibe Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT) Pilot Study

This is a prospective, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial comparing the the effects of approximately 7 weeks of placebo treatment to 7 weeks of ezetimibe (10mg/day) treatment on several parameters of RCT in men and post-menopausal women diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia. The primary hypothesis is that the ezetimibe treatment will increase the excretion of endogenous (plasma-derived) cholesterol as fecal sterols, with secondary hypotheses that there will be a significant in...

High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) Treatment Study

A low level of plasma high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, "the good cholesterol", is the most common lipid abnormality observed in patients with a premature atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. HDL carry excess cholesterol from peripheral tissues to the liver to be metabolized or excreted, a process known as reverse cholesterol transport. Epidemiological studies have shown an inverse correlation between plasma levels of HDL cholesterol and the risk of cardiovascular...

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.

Low Cholesterol and Mortality in Blacks and Women

To determine and compare the long term (thirty year) relationship of total cholesterol and mortality in Blacks and whites in a predominantly urban Charleston, South Carolina cohort and a predominantly rural Evans County, Georgia cohort with special emphasis on the investigation of the association of low cholesterol to all cause, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and non-CVD mortality.

Niacin and Endothelial Function in Early CKD

The purpose of this study is to obtain information on whether raising levels of HDL-cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) can improve how blood vessels work in kidney disease. This may help us understand the causes leading to high rates of heart disease in kidney disease and also ways to reduce this risk.

BMS Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT) Study

The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of radiolabeled particulate cholesterol administered intravenously in association with albumin, as a method to study reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) in humans by analyzing changes in the tracer activity in total plasma, lipoproteins and feces.

Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT) Study
