In familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), the efficacy of the inhibitors of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase shows considerable interindividual variation, and several genetic and environmental factors can contribute to explaining this variability. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial with simvastatin, an(More)
The efficacy of the inhibitors of HMG CoA reductase shows considerable interindividual variation and intense research has focused in the recent years to identify the genetic loci and environmental factors responsible for this variability. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial with simvastatin, an HMG CoA reductase inhibitor, was(More)
The effect of somatostatin on the thyrotropin (TSH), prolactin, growth hormone (GH) and insulin responses to the combined administration of thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) and arginine was studied in six healthy subjects, three hypothyroid patients and three acromegalic patients. Similar inhibition by somatostatin of the TSH and insulin responses was(More)
