Nicotinic Acid: A Review of Its Clinical Use in the Treatment of Lipid Disorders
The beneficial effects, taken together with the low cost of nicotinic acid therapy and the relative freedom from serious side effects, have made nicotinIC acid the agent of choice for the treatment of many patients with hyperlipidemia.
Simultaneous quantitation of nicotinamide riboside and nicotinamide in dietary supplements via HPTLC–UV with confirmation by online HPTLC–ESI–MS
The identification and quantitation of nicotinamide riboside (NAR) and its main related compound (nicotinamide) were achieved using high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC)–ultraviolet (UV)
Newer laboratory methods for assessing nutriture of selected B-complex vitamins.
Progress in the development of new or improved laboratory procedures to assess the nutriture of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, and folic acid is limited.
Fluorescent derivatization of xanthurenic acid and nicotinic acid with horseradish peroxidase in the presence of excess hydrogen peroxide.
The UV spectra of the reaction solutions suggested that compound III as an intermediate of HRP played an essential role in this fluorescent derivatization with HRP.

Comparison between the absorption of nicotinic acid and pentaerythritol tetranicotinate (Perycit) from ordinary and enterocoated tablets.
The nicotinic acid ester used (pentaerythritol tetranicotinate, perycit®, Bofors) given in an oral dose of 1 g, was found to give a moderate but consistent and prolonged increase in the free nicotinIC acid concentration and a consistent decrease in the FFA-level of plasma with a moderate flush.
Acute effect of a sustained release pyridyl carbinol preparation, ronicol retard, on plasma free fatty acids.
This finding together with the appearance of free nicotinic acid in plasma after Ronicol Retard® suggests that this compound lowers plasma levels of FFA by being metabolized to nicotinics acid, which then inhibits lipolysis.
Cholestyramine, clofibrate and nicotinic acid as single or combined treatment of type IIa and IIb hyperlipoproteinaemia.
A more frequent use of combinations to improve the treatment of hyperlipoproteinaemia is recommended and it is necessary to consider not only the lipid lowering effect but also the side effects which are not discussed here.
Die Behandlung von Hyperlipidämien
Three drugs were equally effective against increased cholesterol levels and the two clofibrate preparations lowered increased triglyceride levels more reliably than beta-pyridylcarbinol.
