Effects of niceritrol (pentaerythritol tetranicotinate) on plasma lipoprotein concentration: increment of high density lipoprotein(HDL) cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol/low density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio in hypo-high density lipoproteinemia.


The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of niceritrol on HDL metabolism. In study (A), niceritrol, 750 mg/day was given for initial period of 12 weeks and 1,500 mg/day was prescribed for an additional 12 weeks to 12 subjects. In six of them, the HDL cholesterol (Ch) levels were less than 45 mg/100 ml with normal plasma cholesterol… (More)
