• Patients
  • Patients with elevated lipid levels while on combination antiretroviral therapy with PIs or NNRTIs will experience an improvement in lipid levels after switching their PI or NNRTI to a raltegravir based regimen. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This is a multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group study to be conducted in approximately 120 patients with hyperlipidemia in approximately 10 sites in US and China. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Patients who satisfy the entry criteria at screening visit will have a 4-week Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) diet control period during which all lipid-lowering medications will be discontinued. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Many patients and experimental models with diabetes mellitus have both hyperlipidemia and chronic kidney disease (CKD), resulting in both intimal atherosclerotic calcification and medial calcification in the same arterial segment. (ahajournals.org)
  • This was a parallel-design study of 351 participants with hyperlipidemia from four participating academic centers across Canada in which patients were randomized to one of three treatments lasting 6 months. (acc.org)
  • Acquired combined hyperlipidemia is extremely common in patients who suffer from other diseases from the metabolic syndrome ("syndrome X", incorporating diabetes mellitus type II, hypertension, central obesity and CH). Excessive free fatty acid production by various tissues leads to increased VLDL synthesis by the liver. (wikipedia.org)
  • chronic
  • Methods: Forty chronic periodontitis (CP) subjects with hyperlipidaemia (CP/HPL group), 40 systemically healthy CP subjects (CP group) and 20 systemically and periodontally healthy subjects (control group) were enrolled. (quintpub.com)
  • genetic
  • Primary hyperlipidemia is usually due to genetic causes (such as a mutation in a receptor protein), while secondary hyperlipidemia arises due to other underlying causes such as diabetes. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Physicians and basic researchers classify dyslipidemias in two distinct ways: Presentation in the body (including the specific type of lipid that is increased) Underlying cause for the condition (genetic, or secondary to another condition). (wikipedia.org)
  • profile
  • The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of XueZhiKang to improve plasma lipid profile, as compared to placebo, in outpatients with hyperlipidemia. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Lipid Profile is part of many routine health screening checks to quantify the cardiac risk of a person. (medindia.net)
  • steroid
  • It is a sterol (or modified steroid), a type of lipid molecule, and is biosynthesized by all animal cells, because it is an essential structural component of all animal cell membranes and is essential to maintain both membrane structural integrity and fluidity. (wikipedia.org)
