In line with current guideline recommendations, patients at high cardiovascular risk are usually treated with statins for secondary as well as for primary prevention. While many studies investigated treatment goal achievement with regards to low-density lipoprotein (LDL-C) and total cholesterol (TC) there is paucity of data regarding high density lipoprotein (HDL-C), and/or triglycerides (TG).

These agents may eventually play a role as add-on therapy in those with dyslipidemias because of their significant effect on LDL-C. Further explorations in large phase 3 clinical trials are warranted to evaluate the effect of these therapies on cardiovascular clinical outcomes and long-term safety.

Although autoimmune syndromes such as systemic lupus erythematosus and dermatomyositis have been previously reported in association with statin use, vasculitis has not been well described. We present a patient with an antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-positive, predominantly cutaneous vasculitis, the temporal course of which was associated with simvastatin/ezetimibe use. The patient's serologic findings were consistent with drug-induced disease, with high titer antimyeloperoxidase, in addition to antinuclear and anti-Ro (SSA) antibodies. The patient demonstrated complete resolution of symptoms simply by withdrawing the drug.

The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of molecular mobility in the recrystallization process from the amorphous state of the anticholesterol drug ezetimibe. Both the molecular dynamics and crystallization kinetics have been studied using various experimental techniques, such as broadband dielectric spectroscopy (BDS), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Our investigations have shown that ezetimibe easily recrystallizes from the disordered state, both below and above its glass transition temperature (Tg = 336 K). Moreover, we found that an only slightly elevated pressure (5 MPa) significantly accelerates the recrystallization process at T > Tg. We predict that the structural relaxation time of amorphous ezetimibe at 293 K (storage temperature) and ambient pressure is only 22 days. This result corresponds to the characteristic time, determined from XRD measurements, for amorphous ezetimibe to recrystallize during storage at Troom = 298 K. It leads to the conclusion that the molecular mobility reflected in structural relaxation of ezetimibe is mainly responsible for devitrification of this drug. Finally, we determined a relatively easy way to improve the physical stability of the drug by preparing a binary amorphous ezetimibe-Soluplus mixture. Ezetimibe in an amorphous mixture with 20 wt % Soluplus has a much better (over six times) solubility than the pure crystalline material.

Reducing the level of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) with statins induces important pleiotropic effects such as platelet inhibition. An insufficient LDL-C reduction often is treated with ezetimibe, an intestinal cholesterol absorption inhibitor, in combination with a low statin dose. It is not known whether this combination therapy has the same pleiotropic effects as a statin monotherapy.

The inhibition of cholesterol synthesis by a statin enhances intestinal absorption of both cholesterol and various phytosterols. The atherogenic role of phytosterols, well proven in hypersitosterolemia, is now suspected in patients with premature coronary artery disease. The cholestanol/cholesterol ratio can be used as a marker of intestinal cholesterol absorption. Individuals with elevated ratio ("high absorbers") have less favourable cholesterol-lowering response and cardiovascular protection with statin therapy as compared to individuals with low ratio ("high synthesizers"). They may benefit of an adjunct therapy with phytostanols or ezetimibe, both being capable to reduce plasma concentrations of cholesterol and of phytosterols.

The study recruited 4,132 individuals (3,745 of whom were ≥18 years of age); 2,752 of those enrolled were molecularly diagnosed FH cases. Mean follow-up was 5.1 ± 3.1 years; 71.8% of FH cases were on maximal LLT, and an LDL-C treatment target <100 mg/dl was reached by only 11.2% of patients. At follow-up, there was a significant increase in the use of ezetimibe, drug combinations with statins, and maximal LLT. The presence of type 2 diabetes mellitus, a defective allele mutation, ezetimibe use, and the absence of previous ASCVD were predictors of the attainment of LDL-C goals.

Recent studies revealed the importance of transporters in the behaviors of small molecules in the body. In mammals, the presence of a lot of transporters has been suggested, such as ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters and solute ligand carrier (SLC) transporters, some of which are clarified to be causative genes for various kinds of genetic disorders. In addition, a lot of transporters are known to mediate cellular import or export of drugs, to contribute to the pharmacokinetics of substrate drugs and to be involved in the interindividual differences of drug responses. In this review, I introduce our recent work on the transporter-mediated regulation of pharmacokinetics of lifestyle-related substances, such as cholesterol and urate.

Intestinal cholesterol absorption is specifically inhibited by the 2-azetidinone cholesterol absorption inhibitor ezetimibe. Photoreactive ezetimibe analogues specifically label a 145-kDa protein in the brush border membrane of enterocytes from rabbit small intestine identified as aminopeptidase N (CD13). In zebrafish and mouse small intestinal cytosol, a heterocomplex of M(r) 52 kDa between annexin II and caveolin 1 was suggested as a target of ezetimibe. In contrast, in the cytosol and brush border membrane vesicles (BBMV) from rabbit small intestine of control animals or rabbits treated with the nonabsorbable cholesterol absorption inhibitor AVE 5530, both annexin II and caveolin 1 were exclusively present as monomers without any heterocomplex formation. Upon immunoprecipitation with annexin II a 52-kDa band was observed after immunostaining with annexin II antibodies, whereas no staining of a 52-kDa band occurred with anti-caveolin 1 antibodies. Vice versa, a 52-kDa band obtained by immunoprecipitation with caveolin 1 antibodies did not stain with annexin II-antibodies. The intensity of the 52-kDa band was dependent on the amount of antibody and was also observed with anti-actin or anti-APN antibodies suggesting that the 52-kDa band is a biochemical artefact. After incubation of cytosol or BBMV with radioactively labelled ezetimibe analogues, no significant amounts of the ezetimibe analogues could be detected in the immunoprecipitate with caveolin-1 or annexin II antibodies. Photoaffinity labelling of rabbit small intestinal BBMV with ezetimibe analogues did not result in labelling of proteins being immunoreactive with annexin II, caveolin 1 or a 52-kDa heterocomplex. These findings indicate that the rabbit small intestine does not contain an annexin II/caveolin 1 heterocomplex as a target for ezetimibe.

The obesity epidemic has now spread worldwide. With increase in weight, there is an increase in dysregulated energy metabolism ultimately leading to dysfunction of multiple organ systems recognized as the metabolic syndrome. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common form of chronic liver disease worldwide, and is thought to be the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome. It is a nondiscriminating disease affecting both children and adults and no socioeconomic class is spared. There is a well-defined increase in both liver-related and all-cause mortality. Current projections foresee a continued worsening in prevalence, especially with the increased rate of childhood obesity. Prevention would be the ultimate goal, but with continued trends in obesity, therapeutic options are needed to manage this chronic liver disease and prevent its complications of cirrhosis and even hepatocellular carcinoma. Therapies will need to be affordable, tolerable, and safe to be useful on such a large scale. This article will discuss some of the basic understanding of NAFLD, as well as review the currently tested therapies, some novel therapies, and potential future therapeutic options.

This was a Phase I, open-label, multiple-dose,3-period crossover study conducted in healthy adult men and women. Subjects received fenofibrate 145 mg alone, fenofibrate 145 mg with ezetimibe 10 mg, and ezetimibe 10 mg alone for 10 consecutive days, in an order determined by computerized randomization schedule. Blood samples were collected for up to 24 hours after dosing on study day 1 and up to 120 hours after dosing on study day 10 for determination of plasma concentrations of fenofibric acid, unconjugated (free) ezetimibe, and total (conjugated and unconjugated) ezetimibe using validated high-performance liquid chromatography methods with mass-spectrometric detection. Ezetimibe glucuronide concentrations were estimated by subtracting free ezetimibe concentrations from total ezetimibe concentrations.

Sitosterolemia is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterised by a high plasma level of sterols. A homozygous mutation or the compound heterozygous mutation in the ABCG5 gene or the ABCG8 gene leads to a complete loss of function of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) heterodimer transporter G5-G8, which is localised to the apical membrane of enterocytes and hepatocytes. In enterocytes, this complex rejects plant sterols, whereas it promotes their excretion into the bile in the liver. The loss of function of the transporter ABCG5-G8 leads to a high concentration of plasma plant sterols and to its accumulation in tissues. We report here a new mutation of sitosterolemia in a 59-year-old woman with xanthelasma, precocious atherosclerosis, haemolytic anemia and macrothrombocytopenia. She was treated before the availability of Ezetimibe wich is now the gold standard treatment of this disease.

Ezetimibe, 10 mg/day, was added to pravastatin 20 mg/day, while patients maintained the same antiretroviral regimen. Determinations of total, LDL-, and high density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol, triglycerides, apoproteins, and inflammatory factors (homocystein and C-reactive protein) were performed at baseline, and at weeks 6, 12, and 24. Liver enzymes and creatinine phosphokinase were also assessed. Protease inhibitor (PI) or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) Cmin was determined just before and 12 weeks after ezetimibe introduction.

Statins may exert important pleiotropic effects, ie, improve endothelial function, independently of their impact on LDL cholesterol. In humans, however, pleiotropic effects of statins have never been unequivocally demonstrated because prolonged statin treatment always results in reduced LDL cholesterol levels. We therefore tested the hypothesis that similar reductions in LDL cholesterol with simvastatin and ezetimibe, a novel cholesterol absorption inhibitor, result in different effects on endothelial function.

Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is a rare, genetic disorder characterized by an absence or impairment of low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) function resulting in significantly elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. The cholesterol exposure burden beginning in utero greatly increases the risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and premature death. The genetic heterogeneity of HoFH results in a wide range of LDL-C levels among both untreated and treated patients. Diagnosis of HoFH should, therefore, be based on a comprehensive evaluation of clinical criteria and not exclusively LDL-C levels. As treatment goals, the European Atherosclerosis Society and International FH Foundation suggest target LDL-C levels of <100 mg/dL (<2.5 mmol/L) in adults or <70 mg/dL (<1.8 mmol/L) in adults with clinical coronary artery disease or diabetes. The National Lipid Association (NLA) recommends that LDL-C levels be reduced to <100 mg/dL (<2.5 mmol/L) or by at least ≥50 % from pretreatment levels. Conventional therapy combinations that lower atherogenic lipoproteins levels in the blood, such as statins, ezetimibe, bile acid sequestrants and niacin, as well as lipoprotein apheresis, are usually unable to reduce LDL-C levels to recommended targets. Two recently approved agents that reduce lipoprotein synthesis and secretion by the liver are lomitapide, a microsomal triglyceride transfer protein inhibitor, and mipomersen, an apolipoprotein B antisense oligonucleotide. The newly approved inhibitor of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), evolocumab, also shows promise for the management of FH. Because of the extremely high risk for ASCVD, HoFH patients should be identified early.

High field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed to investigate the long-term effect of ezetimibe (eze), a cholesterol resorption blocker, on atherosclerotic lesion formation in the thoracic aorta of apolipoprotein E-deficient mice (apoE ( -/- )) in comparison to wild type mice (WT). Fifteen-month-old apoE ( -/- ) (Western type diet), apoE ( -/-eze ) (Western type diet with eze) which received eze (5 mc/kg/day) continuously, and age-matched WT (normal chow) were studied using contrast-enhanced 3D turbo-spin-echo sequences (RARE factor 2) on a 7 Tesla scanner. Vessel parameters were analyzed in the aortic root (AR) and aortic arch (AA) and compared to those found in histology. Plasma cholesterol levels were reduced at 15 months by 71% (P < 0.01) in apoE ( -/-eze ) compared to apoE ( -/- ). Vessel wall thickness was increased in the AR and AA in apoE ( -/- ) by 189.1 and 147.2%, respectively compared to WT. ApoE ( -/-eze ) showed reduced wall thickness in the AR (127.4%) and AA (102.8%, both P < 0.05 vs. apoE ( -/- )). A significant increase in total aortic vessel area was determined in the AR and AA in apoE ( -/- ) by 134.7 and 118.3%, respectively, compared to WT. This effect was inhibited in apoE ( -/-eze ) (AR: 126.7%, AA: 86.4%, both P < 0.05). Histological analysis confirmed the effect of eze observed by MRI and demonstrated a significant correlation between the two techniques (P < 0.001). MRI demonstrates that ezetimibe significantly reduces atherosclerotic disease in apoE ( -/- ). MRI is therefore a useful technique to perform in vivo interventional studies in experimental atherosclerosis.

SCH48461 is a selective and highly potent inhibitor of cholesterol absorption. In rats, SCH48461 is rapidly and completely metabolized in the first pass through the body. To compare the activity of the metabolites of SCH48461 with SCH48461 itself, an intestinally cannulated, bile duct-cannulated rat model for cholesterol absorption was developed. SCH48461 inhibited the absorption buy zetia of cholesterol by 70%, whereas bile containing the metabolites of SCH48461 (henceforth, "metabolite bile") inhibited the absorption by greater than 95%. Very little of the recovered radioactive dose of SCH48461 was located in the intestinal lumen (7%) or wall (4%), whereas 85% appeared in bile. However, in rats treated with metabolite bile, 62% of the dose remained in the lumen, 13% was associated with the wall and only 24% reappeared in bile, which suggests that the activity of the metabolite bile may be related to its higher retention in the intestinal wall. Rats treated with metabolite bile had 64% and 84% less drug-related radioactivity in their plasma and livers, respectively, compared with animals treated with SCH48461, which indicates that the metabolites are systemically less available than SCH48461. The metabolites in bile were separated by high-performance liquid chromatography; the most active fraction in the bile duct-cannulated rat model was identified by mass spectrometry as the glucuronide of the C4-phenol of SCH48461. The other fractions had moderate or no activity. Through the identification of the most active biliary metabolites of SCH48461 in the rat, we have discovered SCH58235, a novel cholesterol absorption inhibitor which is 400 times more potent than SCH48461 in the cholesterol-fed rhesus monkey.

The use of statins is very extensive in patients with some previous cardiovascular complication. However, the new therapeutic objectives of LDL-C, especially in high risk patients, makes it difficult to reach the LDL-C values desired in the daily clinical practice. The appearance of a new inhibitor of the intestinal cholesterol absorption (ezetimibe) noticeably strengthens the actions of the statins in the reduction of buy zetia LDL-C. Combined use of ezetimibe and statins may make it possible for the vascular high risk patients to reach a greater reduction of LDL-C and achieve the therapeutic objectives more frequently.

Since 1988, the National Cholesterol Education Program has identified low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) as the target of therapy; the new Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III) guidelines continue the tradition of matching the aggressiveness of LDL-lowering therapy according to the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). A significant change in the new guidelines is the definition of.CHD risk equivalents. and the inclusion Oxytrol Medicine of a modified Framingham global risk score. These revisions significantly raise the number of patients who qualify for lipid-lowering therapy. ATP III recognizes statins as the drug of first choice for LDL-C lowering. Statins are proven to be safe and effective for LDL-C reduction and are proven to reduce CHD event rates and mortality. Some patients are not candidates for statin therapy, however, and must rely on nonstatin agents that are less effective in reducing LDL-C, less safe, or poorly tolerated. Consequently, new cholesterol-lowering therapies are needed. Ezetimibe, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2002, is the first in a new class of selective cholesterol absorption inhibitors and offers a novel approach to the treatment of dyslipidemia. Phase 2 data demonstrated that ezetimibe lowers LDL-C by 18% and has a tolerability and short-term safety profile similar to placebo. This paper reviews the cholesterol metabolic pathways and the mechanism of action of the currently available lipid-modifying agents and introduces ezetimibe, the first selective cholesterol absorption inhibitor.

gamma-Tocotrienol (gamma-T3) is a member of the vitamin E family that displays potent anticancer activity and other therapeutic benefits. The objective of this study was to evaluate gamma-T3 intestinal uptake and metabolism using the in situ rat intestinal perfusion model. Isolated segments of rat jejunum and ileum were perfused with gamma-T3 solution, and measurements were made as a function of concentration (5-150 microM). Intestinal permeability (P(eff)) and metabolism were studied by measuring total compound disappearance and major metabolite, 2,7,8-trimethyl-2-(beta-carboxy-ethyl)-6-hydroxychroman, appearance in the intestinal lumen. gamma-T3 and metabolite levels were also determined in mesenteric blood. The P(eff) of gamma-T3 was similar in both intestinal segments and significantly decreased at concentrations > or =25 microM in jejunum and ileum (p < 0.05), whereas metabolite formation was minimal and mesenteric blood concentrations of gamma-T3 and metabolite remained very low. These results indicate that gamma-T3 intestinal uptake is a saturable carrier-mediated process and metabolism is minimal. Results from subsequent in situ inhibition studies with ezetimibe, a potent and selective inhibitor of Niemann-Pick C1-like 1 (NPC1L1) transporter, suggested gamma-T3 intestinal uptake is mediated by NPC1L1. Comparable findings were obtained when Madin-Darby canine kidney II cells that express Clomid Treatment Cost Uk endogenous NPC1L1 were incubated with increasing concentrations of gamma-T3 or gamma-T3 with increasing concentrations of ezetimibe. The present data show for the first time that gamma-T3 intestinal absorption is partly mediated by NPC1L1.

Low HDL- Benicar Hct Generic Substitute cholesterol (<1.02 mmol/L [40 mg/dL] in men or <1.29 mmol/L [50 mg/dL] in women) occurs in about one-third of European patients with dyslipidemia and is an independent cardiovascular risk factor. Simultaneous correction of low HDL-cholesterol and high total-cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol may provide reductions in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality beyond those possible with statins alone. Nicotinic acid (niacin in the US) is the most effective means of increasing HDL-cholesterol available and has been shown to reduce cardiovascular event rates significantly. Niaspan (prolonged-release nicotinic acid) provides a convenient, once-daily means of administering nicotinic acid. Clinical studies with Niaspan have demonstrated marked, long-term increases in HDL-cholesterol with additional useful benefits on triglycerides, LDL-cholesterol, and lipid sub-profiles. The NAUTILUS study demonstrated the beneficial efficacy and tolerability profiles of Niaspan in a usual-care setting. The most common side-effect of Niaspan is flushing, which infrequently causes treatment discontinuation and which usually subsides over continued treatment. The ARBITER 2 and ARBITER 3 studies showed 1-2 years of treatment with Niaspan plus a statin induced regression of atherosclerosis in patients with coronary artery disease. The effect of Niaspan-statin treatment, relative to a statin alone, on clinical cardiovascular outcomes is currently under evaluation. Niaspan represents a practical means of correcting low HDL-cholesterol, an independent risk factor for adverse cardiovascular outcomes.

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta (PPARdelta) is involved in regulation of energy homeostasis. Activation of PPARdelta markedly increases fecal neutral sterol secretion, the last step in reverse cholesterol transport. This phenomenon can neither be explained by increased hepatobiliary cholesterol secretion, nor by reduced cholesterol absorption. To test the hypothesis that PPARdelta activation leads to stimulation of transintestinal cholesterol efflux (TICE), we quantified it by intestine perfusions in FVB mice treated with PPARdelta agonist GW610742. To exclude the effects on cholesterol absorption, mice were also treated with cholesterol absorption inhibitor ezetimibe or ezetimibe/GW610742. GW601742 treatment had little effect on plasma lipid levels but stimulated both fecal neutral sterol excretion ( approximately 200%) and TICE ( approximately 100%). GW610742 decreased intestinal Npc1l1 expression but had no effect on Abcg5/Abcg8. Interestingly, expression of Rab9 and LIMPII, encoding proteins involved in intracellular cholesterol trafficking, was increased upon PPARdelta activation. Although treatment with ezetimibe alone had no effect on TICE, it reduced the effect of GW610742 on TICE. These data show that activation of Prevacid Solutab Generic Equivalent PPARdelta stimulates fecal cholesterol excretion in mice, primarily by the two-fold increase in TICE, indicating that this pathway provides an interesting target for the development of drugs aiming at the prevention of atherosclerosis.

Zetia (ezetimibe) is a selective cholesterol absorption inhibitor, which potently inhibits the absorption of biliary and dietary cholesterol from the small intestine without affecting the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, triglycerides or bile acids. Ezetimibe reduces the small intestinal enterocyte uptake and absorption of cholesterol by binding to Niemann-Pick C1 Like 1 (NPC1L1), which keeps cholesterol in the intestinal lumen for excretion. Ezetimibe undergoes glucuronidation to a single metabolite and localizes at the intestinal wall, where it binds with higher affinity for NPC1L1 than ezetimibe to prevent cholesterol absorption. Enterohepatic recirculation of ezetimibe and/or its glucuronide ensures repeated delivery to the intestinal site of action and limited peripheral exposure. Ezetimibe has no effect on the activity of major drug metabolizing enzymes (CYP450 Mestinon Timespan Cost ), which reduces any potential drug-drug interactions with other medications. Ezetimibe (10 mg/day) was found to inhibit cholesterol absorption by an average of 54% in hypercholesterolemic individuals and by 58% in vegetarians. Ezetimibe alone reduced plasma total and LDL-Cholesterol (18%) levels in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia. When ezetimibe was added to on-going statin treatment, an additional 25% reduction in LDL-C was found in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia and an additional 21% reduction in LDL-C in homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Ezetimibe in combination with statins produces additional reductions in plasma cholesterol levels and allows for more patients to achieve their LDL-C goals.

Five RCTs involving a total of 5039 patients were included in the meta-analysis. The weighted mean difference (WMD) between treatments significantly favoured the ezetimibe/statin combination over placebo/statin for TC (-16.1% (-17.3, -14.8); p < 0.0001), LDL-C (-23.6% (-25.6, -21.7); p < 0.0001) and HDL-C (1.7% (0.9, 2.5); p < 0.0001). The relative risk of reaching the LDL-C treatment goal was significantly higher for patients on ezetimibe/statin relative to those on placebo/statin (3.4 (2.0, 5.6); p < 0.0001). In pre-defined sub-group analyses of studies in patients with coronary heart disease, the WMD between treatments remained significantly in favour of ezetimibe/statin (p < 0.0001) for TC and LDL-C but was no longer significant for HDL-C Rulide 150 Mg Tablet . Elevations in creatine kinase, alanine aminotransferase or aspartate aminotransferase that were considered as an adverse effect did not differ significantly between treatments.

Ezetimibe inhibits Niemann-Pick C1-like 1 (NPC1L1), an apical membrane cholesterol transporter of enterocytes, thereby reduces intestinal cholesterol absorption. This treatment also increases extrahepatic reverse cholesterol transport via an undefined mechanism. To explore this, we employed a trans-intestinal cholesterol efflux (TICE) assay, which directly detects circulation-to-intestinal lumen 3H-cholesterol transit in a cannulated jejunal segment, and found an increase of TICE by 45%. To examine whether such increase in efflux occurs at the intestinal brush border membrane(BBM)-level, we performed luminal perfusion assays, similar to TICE but the jejunal wall was labelled with orally-given 3H-cholesterol, and determined elevated BBM-to-lumen cholesterol efflux by 3.5-fold with ezetimibe. Such increased efflux probably promotes circulation-to-lumen cholesterol transit eventually; thus increases TICE. Next, we wondered how inhibition of NPC1L1, an influx transporter, resulted in increased efflux. When we traced orally-given 3H-cholesterol in mice, we found that lumen-to-BBM 3H-cholesterol transit was rapid and less sensitive to ezetimibe treatment. Comparison of the efflux and fractional cholesterol absorption revealed an inverse correlation, indicating the efflux as an opposite-regulatory factor for cholesterol absorption Motrin Dosing Chart efficiency and counteracting to the naturally-occurring rapid cholesterol influx to the BBM. These suggest that the ezetimibe-stimulated increased efflux is crucial in reducing cholesterol absorption. Ezetimibe-induced increase in cholesterol efflux was approximately 2.5-fold greater in mice having endogenous ATP-binding cassette G5/G8 heterodimer, the major sterol efflux transporter of enterocytes, than the knockout counterparts, suggesting that the heterodimer confers additional rapid BBM-to-lumen cholesterol efflux in response to NPC1L1 inhibition. The observed framework for intestinal cholesterol fluxes may provide ways to modulate the flux to dispose of endogenous cholesterol efficiently for therapeutic purposes.
