The prevalence of statin intolerance was 1.0 % (n = 1320) and 5.2 % (n = 6985) using Definitions 1 and 2, respectively. Overall, 45,266 (33.6 %) beneficiaries had statin intolerance by Definition 2 or discontinued statins and 55,990 (41.5 %) beneficiaries had high adherence to statins. Compared with beneficiaries with high adherence to statins, those with statin intolerance and who had statin intolerance or discontinued statins were more likely to be female versus male, and black, Hispanic or Asian versus white. The multivariable adjusted odds ratio for statin intolerance by Definitions 1 and 2 comparing patients initiating high versus low/moderate intensity statins were 2.82 (95%CI: 2.42-3.29), and 8.58 (8.07-9.12), respectively, and for statin intolerance or statin discontinuation was 2.35 (2.25-2.45).

Based on 2 studies (n = 83,241), the diagnostic yield of universal screening for FH in childhood is 1.3 to 4.8 cases per 1000 screened. There was no eligible evidence on the benefits or harms of FH screening in childhood. Eight placebo trials of statin drugs (n = 1071, 6-104 weeks) found low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) decreases of 20% to 40%; 1 trial (n = 214) showed a 2.01% decrease in carotid intima-media thickness with statins, compared with 1.02% with placebo (P = .02). Three placebo trials of bile acid-sequestering agents (n = 332, 8-52 weeks) showed LDL-C reductions of 10% to 20%. In 1 trial (n = 248), ezetimibe with simvastatin resulted in greater LDL-C reductions compared with simvastatin alone at 33 weeks (mean, -54.0% [SD, 1.4%] vs -38.1% [SD, 1.4%]). One trial of ezetimibe monotherapy (n = 138) showed mean LDL-C decreases of 28% (95% CI, -31% to -25%) from baseline and negligible change with placebo at 12 weeks. Eighteen studies found statins generally well tolerated. One observational study found lower, but still normal, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate concentrations in statin-treated males with FH at 10-year follow-up. Bile acid-sequestering agents were commonly associated with adverse gastrointestinal symptoms and poor palatability. There was no eligible evidence on the effect of FH treatment on myocardial infarction or stroke in adulthood.

At present, lipoprotein apheresis, combined with high-dose statin and ezetimibe therapy, is the best available means of treating patients with homozygous and statin-refractory heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH). However, the extent of cholesterol-lowering achieved is often insufficient to meet the targets set by current guidelines. The recent advent of three new classes of lipid-lowering agents provides new hope that the latter objective may now be achievable. These compounds act either by reducing low-density lipoprotein (LDL) production by inhibiting apolipoprotein B synthesis with an antisense oligonucleotide (mipomersen) or by inhibiting microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (lomitapide), or by enhancing LDL catabolism via monoclonal antibody-mediated inhibition of the activity of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin 9 (PCSK9) (evolocumab). Depending on the outcome of current trials, it seems likely that these compounds, used alone or combined with lipoprotein apheresis, will markedly improve the management of refractory FH.

Prior to the start of rosuvastatin treatment, on diet alone, mean LDL-C levels were 291 ± 59 mg/dL and decreased to 141 ± 30 mg/dL on rosuvastatin 40 mg daily at the substudy baseline prior to ezetimibe. After 12 weeks, the addition of ezetimibe produced an additional 15% ±9% reduction in LDL-C (P < 0.001) compared to pre-rosuvastatin levels and a mean LDL-C of 103 ± 27 mg/dL, resulting in 59% of patients reaching their LDL-C goals. The combination reduced LDL-C by 65% ± 9% from diet alone. Combination with ezetimibe also produced significant additional percent reductions in non-high-density lipoprotein (14%), apolipoprotein B (10%), and triglycerides (6%). Median C-reactive protein was reduced 54% (P < 0.001) by the combination compared with diet alone, a further incremental reduction of 13% (P < 0.001) with the addition of ezetimibe. The combination was well tolerated, with no patients developing myopathy or clinically significant elevations of creatine kinase or transaminases.

Combining low-dose statin and ezetimibe reduces the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) similar to high-dose statin. However, whether there is a difference in the effect of these 2 lipid-lowering regimes on endothelial function is still controversial.

A total of 44% of Hong Kong patients not at LDL-C goals at baseline did not achieve them over 1.9 years. More effective and well-tolerated therapies, including adjunctive regimens (e.g., ezetimibe-statin, niacin-statin), may be necessary to enhance LDL-C goal achievement and increase event-free time.

The purpose of this study was to examine the efficacy and safety of ezetimibe (EZE) coadministered with simvastatin (SIMVA) in a large cohort of African Americans with primary hypercholesterolemia. In a multicenter, randomized, double-blind study, patients were considered eligible for enrollment if after a washout/placebo run-in period, low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level was > or = 145 and < or = 250 mg/dl and triglyceride level was < or = 350 mg/dl. Eligible patients were randomized to SIMVA 20 mg coadministered with either EZE 10 mg (n = 124) or placebo (n = 123) for 12 weeks. At study endpoint, EZE/SIMVA 10/20 mg resulted in a significant mean percent reduction in LDL cholesterol from baseline of 45.6% compared with 28.3% for SIMVA 20 mg alone (p < or = 0.01). There were significantly greater mean reductions in total cholesterol (33% vs. 21%), triglycerides (median 22% vs. 15%), nonhigh-density-lipoprotein (non-HDL) cholesterol (42% vs. 26%), and apolipoprotein B (38% vs. 25%) with EZE/SIMVA 10/20 mg compared with SIMVA 20 mg alone, respectively (p < or = 0.01). There was no difference in HDL cholesterol between the EZE/SIMVA 10/20-mg and SIMVA 20-mg alone groups (+1% vs. +2%, respectively). Coadministration of EZE/SIMVA 10/20 mg demonstrated a safety profile similar to that of SIMVA 20 mg. In conclusion, EZE/SIMVA 10/20 mg provided significantly greater improvement in atherogenic lipid profiles and was well tolerated compared with SIMVA 20-mg monotherapy in a large cohort of African Americans with primary hypercholesterolemia.

Although many studies have documented that reduction of plasma cholesterol levels decreases the risk of coronary artery disease, it remains the most common cause of death in the Western world. Current therapeutic options are effective in lowering cholesterol, especially in clinical trials, but clinical application is not optimized for many reasons. Dietary restriction for long-term management of hypercholesterolemia is helpful but usually insufficient to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) to goal levels. Powerful drugs are available, but these are often insufficient to meet the clinical demands for cholesterol-lowering therapy. Phytosterols and phytostanols have been partially effective by providing some inhibition of absorption of cholesterol. Compounds that specifically and more effectively block intestinal absorption of dietary and biliary cholesterol should provide a significant new agent for altering lipoprotein concentrations favorably. Ezetimibe is the first of this class of compounds that act at the gut epithelium to reduce cholesterol absorption in the milligram dose range markedly. Clinical studies indicate that ezetimibe effectively decreases LDL-C by 15 to 20% as monotherapy, with a favorable safety profile. Moreover, results from preliminary clinical trials indicate that ezetimibe given concomitantly with a statin provides additive efficacy. The combination represents a new approach to lipid management, achieving greater LDL-C and triglyceride reductions and greater improvements in HDL-C than statin monotherapy. This could offer another important option in clinical practice for management of hypercholesterolemic patients.

The chromatographic separation of the drugs were performed on an X-Terra C8 (4.6 x 150 mm, 3.5 mm), with phosphate buffer [pH 3.5 with Ortho Phosphoric Acid] - acetonitrile 40:60 (v/v) as mobile phase. The detection was performed at 235 nm. The flow rate was maintained at 1.2 mL/min. The run time was 8.0 min.

Both HeFH and HoFH require dietary and lifestyle modification. Pharmacotherapy of adult HeFH patients is largely driven by the American Heart Association (AHA) algorithm. A high-potency statin is started initially with a goal low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) reduction of >50 %. The LDL-C target is adjusted to <100 or <70 mg/dL in subjects with coronary artery disease (CAD) with ezetimibe being second line. If necessary, a third adjunctive therapy, such as a PSCK9 inhibitor (not yet approved in children) or bile acid-binding resin, can be added. Finally, LDL-C apheresis can be considered in patients with LDL-C >300 mg/dL (or >200 mg/dL with significant CAD, although now approved for LDL-C as low as 160 mg/dL with CAD). Due to the early, severe LDL-C elevation in HoFH patients, concerning natural history, rarity of the condition, and nuances of treatment, all HoFH patients should be treated at a pediatric or adult center with HoFH experience. LDL-C apheresis should be considered as early as 5 years of age. However, apheresis availability and tolerability is limited and pharmacotherapy is required. Generally, the AHA algorithm with reference to the European Atherosclerosis Society Consensus Panel recommendations is reasonable with all patients initiated on high-dose, high-potency statin, ezetimibe, and bile acid-binding resins. In most, additional LDL-C lowering is required with PCSK9 inhibitors and/or lomitapide or mipomersen. Liver transplantation can also be considered at experienced centers as a last resort.

Direct-to-consumer advertising (DTCA) of prescription drugs is the most common form of health communication Americans are exposed to. The effects of DTCA on prescription requests and utilization are well established, but little is known about the effects of advertisements on health behaviors. Many advertisements, especially those promoting drugs to prevent or treat cardiovascular disease, refer to lifestyle change as a way to improve health. However, no studies have examined how consumers interpret these frequently ambiguous messages. We used in-depth interviews with 45 participants, recruited in Los Angeles, USA between April 2007 and July 2008, to explore perceptions of 5 advertisements for drugs that prevent or treat cardiovascular disease (Lipitor(®), Vytorin(®), Zetia(®), Caduet(®), Plavix(®)). We found that participants interpreted advertising messages within their own life context and identified four trajectories for enacting behavior change versus taking prescription drugs: Negotiators, Avoiders, Embracers and Jumpstarters. Underlying these four typologies were beliefs about whether lifestyle change was something an individual could do or was willing to do. Our results also show how an advertisement narrative could potentially shift perceptions of causality by suggesting that high cholesterol is primarily hereditary, thereby obviating the need for lifestyle change. Some participants stated that they would prefer lifestyle change to a particular prescription drug, but felt that others would be more likely to embrace taking a prescription drug. This "Third Person Effect" may be masking participants' intentions by identifying a more socially desirable route to therapeutic change. These findings raise questions about how the typologies are distributed in the population and how advertising may shift consumers' beliefs over time, thereby contributing to new forms of medicalization. Effective regulation of DTCA may require expanding scrutiny beyond the accuracy of claims about benefits and risks, to also considering the broader narratives in which these claims are made.

A total of 63 patients with stable coronary artery disease and high levels of remnant-like lipoprotein particle cholesterol (RLP-C) (≥5.0 mg/dL) on statin treatment were assigned randomly to two groups and treated with either addition of ezetimibe (10mg/day, n=32) Suprax Drug Uses or doubling of statin dose (n=31). The lipid profiles and flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of the brachial artery were measured at enrollment and after 6 months of treatment. Statin and ezetimibe combined therapy reduced RLP-C and improved FMD to a greater extent than doubling the statin dose (% reduction in RLP-C, 48 ± 18% vs. 33 ± 24%, respectively, p=0.01; % improvement in FMD, 47 ± 48% vs. 24 ± 23%, respectively, p=0.02).

The potent cholesterol absorption inhibitor ezetimibe was developed as a first-in-class drug for treating hypercholesterolemia even before its molecular target, Niemann-Pick C1-like 1 (NPC1L1), had been identified. The NPC1L1 protein mediates sterol transport across the enterocyte brush border membrane and is essential for intestinal cholesterol absorption, a major pathway controlling whole-body cholesterol homeostasis. An elucidation of the mechanism underlying NPC1L1-dependent cholesterol absorption would greatly facilitate the discovery and development of new cholesterol-lowering agents for treating Bactroban Gel hypercholesterolemia and other cholesterol-related metabolic disorders.

Statins reduce both LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) levels and the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with and without cardiovascular disease. Intensive statin therapy, compared with moderate-dose statin therapy, incrementally lowers LDL-C levels and rates of cardiovascular Mysoline 250 Mg events in patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome. Ezetimibe, by diminishing the absorption of cholesterol from the intestine, additionally reduces LDL-C when added to statins. In this article, we discuss the potential benefits of the combination of simvastatin and ezetimibe for the long-term management of patients with acute coronary syndrome through an analysis of the IMPROVE-IT results (IMProved Reduction of Outcomes: Vytorin Efficacy International Trial). This randomised double blind trial included 18,144 patients with a LDL-C of 50 to 100 (with statin) or 125 (without statin) mg/dl and had a median follow-up of 6 years. The objective of the study was to test the efficacy of simvastatin 40 mg versus simvastatin 40 mg and 10 mg ezetimibe. The primary endpoint included cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina and coronary revascularization. The addition of ezetimibe to simvastatin resulted in an incremental lowering of LDL-C (reached value 53.2 versus 69.9 mg/dl, p < 0.001) and a further improvement of the patient prognosis (relative reduction of primary endpoint: -6.4%, p = 0.016). In addition, the combined therapy showed no significant adverse effects, particularly regarding the risk of cancers, which confirms the safety of ezetimibe. In acute coronary syndrome, the prescription of ezetimibe should be considered (class HA, level of evidence B) in patients with a LDL-C a 70 mg/dl despite maximally tolerated dose of statin.

Imbalance on endothelial turnover can predict cardiovascular outcomes. We aimed at evaluating the effects of lipid-modifying therapies on circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), endothelial microparticles (EMPs), and platelet microparticles (PMPs) in high cardiovascular risk subjects with elevated C-reactive protein (CRP). Sixty-three individuals with coronary heart disease (CHD) or CHD risk equivalent on stable statin therapy, with LDL-cholesterol <100 mg/dL and CRP ≥ 2.0 mg/L were selected. After a 4-week run-in period with atorvastatin 10 mg, those with persistent CRP ≥ 2.0 mg/L were randomized to another 4-week treatment period with atorvastatin 40 mg, ezetimibe 10 mg or atorvastatin 40 mg/ezetimibe 10 mg. EPC (CD34(+)/CD133(+)/KDR(+)), EMP (CD51(+)), and PMP (CD42(+)/CD31(+)) were quantified by flow Crestor 10 Mg Drug Information cytometry. Atorvastatin 40 mg and atorvastatin 40 mg/ezetimibe 10 mg reduced LDL-cholesterol (P < 0.001, paired T test, vs. baseline). Combined therapy, but not ezetimibe reduced CRP. CD34(+)/KDR(+) EPC were reduced after ezetimibe alone (P = 0.011 vs. baseline, Wilcoxon test) or combined with atorvastatin (P = 0.016 vs. baseline, Wilcoxon test). In addition, ezetimibe increased CD51(+) EMP (P = 0.017 vs. baseline, Wilcoxon test). No correlations between these markers and LDL-cholesterol or CRP were observed. These results contribute to understand the link between inflammation and vascular homeostasis and highlight the broader benefit of statins decreasing inflammation and preventing microparticles release, an effect not observed with ezetimibe alone.

A total of 212 chief pharmacists (n = 80), staff pharmacists (n = 78), and physicians (n = 54) responded, for an overall response rate of 49%. In total, 107/143 (75%) different VAMCs were represented. The majority of VAMCs reported adhering to national criteria for use, with 38 (36%) being very adherent and 69 (65%) being mostly adherent. There was substantial variation between VAMCs regarding how nonformulary drugs were ordered, evaluated, and appealed. The nonformulary lipid-lowering drugs ezetimibe, rosuvastatin, and atorvastatin were viewable to providers in the order entry screen at 67 (63%), 67 (63%), and 64 (60%) VAMCs, respectively. The nonformulary diabetes medication pioglitazone was only viewable at 58 (55%) VAMCs. In the remaining VAMCs, providers could not order these nonformulary drugs through the normal order-entry process. For questions about the formulary environment, physician Topamax 100mg Medication respondent perceptions differed from those of staff pharmacists and chief pharmacists. Compared with pharmacy chiefs and staff pharmacists, physicians were less likely to agree that providers at their VAMC prescribed too many nonformulary medications (47% and 44% vs. 12%, P < 0.001), more likely to agree that providers must jump through too many hoops to prescribe nonformulary medication (5% and 3% vs. 25%, P < 0.001), and more likely to agree that providers make an effort to convert new patients from nonformulary to formulary lipid-lowering (65% and 73% vs. 94%, P <0.02) and diabetic medications (49% and 50% vs. 88%, P < 0.001).

Men treated with ezetimibe+statin experienced significantly greater changes in LDL-C (p = 0.0066), non-HDL-C, total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-C, apolipoprotein A-I (all p < 0.0001) and apolipoprotein B (p = 0.0055) compared with women treated with ezetimibe+statin. The odds of achieving LDL-C < 100 mg/dL, apolipoprotein B < 90 mg/dL and the Eldepryl Generic Name dual target [LDL-C < 100 mg/dL & apoliprotein B < 90 mg/dL] was significantly greater for women vs. men and the odds of achieving hs-CRP < 1 and < 2 mg/L and dual specified levels of [LDL-C < 100 mg/dL and hs-CRP < 2 mg/L] were significantly greater for men vs. women. Women reported significantly more gall-bladder-related, gastrointestinal-related, and allergic reaction or rash-related adverse events (AEs) vs. men (no differences between treatments). Men reported significantly more CK elevations (no differences between treatments) and hepatitis-related AEs vs. women (significantly more with ezetimibe+simvastatin vs. statin).

Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is the most common inherited type of primary hyperlipidemia. Patients with familial hypercholesterolemia have an increased level of LDL cholesterol since childhood, and present early associated cardiovascular disease. Ezetimibe reduces LDL by blocking sterol absorption in enterocytes.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of ezetimibe on high-density lipoprotein (HDL) subspecies and serum amyloid A (SAA), an apolipoprotein mainly bound and transported by HDL particles, in patients with end-stage renal disease (ERSD), a condition typically characterized by high SAA- and low HDL-cholesterol (C ) levels.

Ezetimibe combined with standard diet and exercise therapy improves not only bodyweight and atherogenic lipid profiles, but also insulin resistance, blood pressure and anthropometric factors in metabolic syndrome in local-dwelling Japanese. Interestingly, the improvement of insulin resistance had no correlation with other metabolic components.

Inflammation plays a crucial role in atherosclerosis. Monocytes/macrophages are involved in the inflammatory process during atherogenesis. Here, we performed daily gavage of ezetimibe in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice fed with a high-fat diet and found that ezetimibe administration decreased the level of C-reactive protein significantly. To investigate the potential molecular mechanism, we employed microarray analysis on the cultured macrophages treated with Chol:MβCD in the presence or absence of ezetimibe. We found that ezetimibe dramatically down-regulated the expression of the tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) gene. Consistent with the microarray results, TNF-α protein levels were inhibited by ezetimibe. Moreover, ezetimibe suppressed the promoter activity of TNF-α but not TNF-α lacking the nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB) binding domain in THP-1 cells treated with phorbol myristate acetate and Chol:MβCD. Furthermore, treatment of THP-1 macrophages with ezetimibe resulted in the degradation of IκB and subsequently inhibited nuclear translocation of NF-κB and its transcriptional activity. Inhibition of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway using PD98059 attenuated the reduction effect of ezetimibe on the expression of NF-κB. Collectively, our results demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory properties of ezetimibe in THP-1 macrophages are, at least in part, through suppression of NF-κB activation via the MAPK pathway. These data provide direct evidence for the potential application of ezetimibe in the prevention and treatment of inflammatory diseases.
