DrugDrug Description
PravastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction and stroke.
LovastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and associated conditions, including myocardial infarction and stroke.
CerivastatinA statin (or HMG CoA reductase inhibitor) used with dietary changes to decrease lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events.
ClofibrateA fibric acid derivative used to treat hypertriglyceridemia and high cholesterol.
SimvastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events including myocardial infarction and stroke.
ColesevelamA bile acid sequestrant used to lower LDL-C in adults with hyperlipidemia and pediatric patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, and to improve glycemic control in type 2 diabetes.
EzetimibeA cholesterol absorption inhibitor used to lower total cholesterol, LDL-C, Apo-B, and non-HDL-C in primary hyperlipidemia and familial cholesterolemia.
AtorvastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke.
RosuvastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke.
CholestyramineA bile acid sequestrant used as an adjunct in the reduction of elevated serum cholesterol in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia, and for the relief of pruritus associated with partial biliary obstruction.
ProbucolUsed to lower LDL and HDL cholesterol.
MipomersenAn oligonucleotide drug used for the treatment of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia.
TorcetrapibInvestigated for use/treatment in peripheral vascular disease and hyperlipidemia.
AnacetrapibInvestigated for use/treatment in hyperlipidemia.
MevastatinNot used therapeutically due to its many side effects.
PitavastatinAn HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke.
EtofibrateEtofibrate is a fibrate produced by the combination of clofibrate ester linked to niacin. These components separate in the body slowly allowing for pharmacokinetics similar to controlled-release formulations.
PoliglusamPoliglusam, or chitosan, is a linear polysaccharide consisting of D-glucosamine and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. Naturally-occuring poliglusam is found in the cell walls of fungi, soil and sediments where it is produced from...
EvacetrapibEvacetrapib has been used in trials studying the basic science and treatment of Dyslipidemia, Hyperlipidemia, Hypercholesterolemia, Hepatic Insufficiency, and Cardiovascular Disease.
DalcetrapibDalcetrapib is under investigation for the treatment of Acute Coronary Syndrome.
Fenofibric acidA fibrate used to treat severe hypertriglyceridemia, primary hypercholesterolemia, or mixed dyslipidemia.
MeglutolAn antilipemic agent which lowers cholesterol, triglycerides, serum beta-lipoproteins and phospholipids. It acts by interfering with the enzymatic steps involved in the conversion of acetate to hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A as...
EvolocumabA PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9) inhibitor antibody used as an adjunct to LDL cholesterol reducing therapies, aiding in the prevention of cardiovascular events and cardiovascular revascularization procedures.
BococizumabBococizumab has been used in trials studying the treatment and prevention of Dyslipidemia, Hyperlipidemia, Hypercholesterolemia, Cardiovascular Disease, and Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia.
