Lipoprotein articles

Kynamro approved to treat inherited cholesterol disorder
Kynamro - mipomersen sodium - injection approved as an addition to lipid-lowering medications and diet to treat patients with a rare type of high cholesterol called homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH). Kynamro is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Fasting before blood lipid tests may be unnecessary
Fasting prior to blood lipid tests appears to have limited association with lipid subclass levels, suggesting that fasting for routine lipid level determinations may be unnecessary.

Safety changes in labeling for cholesterol lowering drugs statins
Important safety changes to the labeling for some widely used cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins are being announced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These products, when used with diet and exercise, help to lower a person's "bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol).

New safety recommendations for high dose 80 mg simvastatin
Patients taking simvastatin 80 mg daily had an increased risk of muscle injury. The risk of muscle injury is highest during the first year of treatment with the 80 mg dose of simvastatin, and is frequently associated with a genetic predisposition for simvastatin-related muscle injury or myopathy.

New form of cholesterol revealed in people at high risk of heart disease
Scientists from the University of Warwick have discovered why a newly found form of cholesterol seems to be 'ultra-bad', leading to increased risk of heart disease. The discovery could lead to new treatments to prevent heart disease particularly in people with type 2 diabetes and the elderly.

Niacin and statin treatment did not protect heart
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health has stopped a clinical trial studying a blood lipid treatment 18 months earlier than planned.

High triglyceride levels linked to greater stroke risk
Increasing levels of non-fasting triglycerides are associated with an increased risk of ischemic stroke in men and women, revealed by researchers in Denmark.

Eating nuts improve blood cholesterol levels
Consuming more nuts appears to be associated with improvements in blood cholesterol levels, according to a pooled analysis of data from 25 trials reported in the May 10 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.

Hepatitis B hits men harder than women due to an abnormal protein
Researchers are trying to explain the long-standing mystery of why the hepatitis B virus (HBV) sexually discriminates -- hitting men harder than women.

Prevalence of bad cholesterol levels decreases in US
Between 1999 and 2006, the prevalence of adults in the U.S. with high levels of LDL cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol, decreased by about one-third, revealed by US researchers. But a high percentage of adults still are not being screened or treated for high cholesterol levels.

Red yeast rice reduce cholesterol in statin intolerant
Red yeast rice capsules reduce cholesterol LDL (low density lipoprotein) levels in statin intolerant patients without causing any adverse events such as muscle pain and weakness, revealed by researchers.

Lipoprotein a increases heart attack risk
A genetic analysis of data from three studies suggests that genetically elevated levels of lipoprotein(a) are associated with an increased risk of heart attack, according to a study in the June 10 issue of JAMA.

Plant based low carb diet promotes weight loss
Overweight individuals who ate a low-calorie, low-carbohydrate diet high in plant-based proteins for four weeks lost weight and experienced improvements in blood cholesterol levels and other heart disease risk factors.

12 new genes identified for managing cholesterol, glucose, melatonin, sleep
Scientists have identified 12 new genes that are somewhat strange bedfellows: Some link gallstones and blood cholesterol levels, others link melatonin and sleep patterns to small increases in glucose levels and larger jumps in the risk of diabetes.

Ischemic stroke increases with higher nonfasting triglyceride level
Elevated nonfasting triglyceride levels, previously associated with an increased risk for heart attack, also appear to be associated with an increased risk for ischemic stroke.
