Colesevelam Treatment for Impaired Fasting Glucose During Niacin Therapy
The present study will assess the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) lowering effect of colesevelam as an adjunct to niacin for the improvement of lipids and glycemic control in dyslipidemic subjects with impaired fasting glucose.
Status: Completed Start Date: November 2010 Completion Date: August 2011
The Effects of Consumption of Pomegranate Juice on Carotid Intima-Media Thickness
Increases in carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT) are correlated with increased risk of stroke and myocardial infarction. The purpose of this study is to assess if pomegranate juice will retard the carotid (IMT) progression rate in men and women who have one or more [more...]  existing cardiovascular risk factors (current cigarette smoking, hypertension, low HDL-cholesterol, and/or high LDL-cholesterol) upon entrance into the study.
Status: Completed Start Date: September 2003 Completion Date: September 2005
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 reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) in men and post-menopausal women diagnosed [more...]  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 increase in de novo cholesterol synthesis, treatment will increase cholesterol efflux from tissues into the bloodstream, and increase global RCT.
Status: Completed Start Date: June 2008 Completion Date: March 2009
ABT-335 (Choline Fenofibrate) Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT) Study
The objectives of the study are: 1. To evaluate the effect of ABT-335 (choline fenofibrate) on several parameters of RCT (reverse cholesterol transport) in men and post-menopausal women diagnosed with [more...]  dyslipidemia (i.e., low high-density lipoprotein [HDL] cholesterol levels and elevated triglyceride [TG] concentrations). 2. To evaluate longitudinal changes in several parameters of RCT in subjects with low HDL. 3. To obtain pilot data for power calculations for subsequent comparative study.
Status: Completed Start Date: March 2008 Completion Date: May 2009

 

Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Participants often receive the best healthcare available for their condition.

Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. Trials are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect participants.

Radiant Research Clinical Trials Information presented on ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is not intended to be a substitute for qualified medical advice visit or treatment with a real physician. We are not physicians. Always consult with a medical doctor (MD). ClinicalTrialsSearch.org is a website dedicated to listing clinical research studies in human subjects, including those specifically related to Radiant Research. Clinical research trials and medical trials take place in hundreds of cities across the United States. A clinical trial or clinical study is a research project with human volunteer subjects. Clinical drug trials and pharmaceutical clinical trials generally measure the effectiveness of new treatments and drugs. The purpose of the studies is to answer specific human health questions. Clinical trials are a popular way for doctors, government agencies, and private sector companies to find treatments for all kinds of conditions. Clinical trials allow volunteers access to medical treatment options before they are available to the general public. Many times the participants receive treatment for free, and sometimes they are paid for their time. Participants often receive the best healthcare available possible for their condition. Risks are a reality, however, and may include more frequent doctor visits, health risks (possibly life-threatening), and/or the treatment being ineffective. U.S. - based Radiant Research studies are federally regulated with strict guidelines to protect patients.
