Drug Drug Description Choline A nutrient found in a wide variety of vitamins including pre-natal formulations. Pravastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction and stroke. Lovastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and associated conditions, including myocardial infarction and stroke. Colestipol A bile acid sequestrant used as an adjunct to diet and exercise to reduce LDL-C cholesterol levels in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia. Cerivastatin A statin (or HMG CoA reductase inhibitor) used with dietary changes to decrease lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events. Niacin A B vitamin used to treat hypertriglyceridemia and pellagra. Clofibrate A fibric acid derivative used to treat hypertriglyceridemia and high cholesterol. Simvastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events including myocardial infarction and stroke. Colesevelam A 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. Ezetimibe A cholesterol absorption inhibitor used to lower total cholesterol, LDL-C, Apo-B, and non-HDL-C in primary hyperlipidemia and familial cholesterolemia. Cerulenin For use as a biochemical tool, Cerulenin is shown to cause dramatic weight loss in animals Fenofibrate A peroxisome proliferator receptor alpha activator used to lower LDL-C, total-C, triglycerides, and Apo B, while increasing HDL-C in hypercholesterolemia, dyslipidemia, and hypertriglyceridemia. Atorvastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke. Fluvastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke. Rosuvastatin An HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor used to lower lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction and stroke. Gemfibrozil A lipid regulator that is used in the reduction of serum triglyceride levels in high-risk patients with hyperlipidemia. Bezafibrate A lipid-lowering fibrate used in the management of primary and secondary hyperlipidaemia, when there is a lack of clinical improvement following lifestyle modifications or correction of the underlying disorder. Cholestyramine A 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. Probucol Used to lower LDL and HDL cholesterol. Mipomersen An oligonucleotide drug used for the treatment of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Mevastatin Not used therapeutically due to its many side effects. Pitavastatin Etofibrate Etofibrate 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.

Evolocumab A 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. Bempedoic acid A drug used in conjunction with lifestyle modification and/or other agents for the treatment of refractory hypercholesterolemia. Volixibat Volixibat is an investigational drug that has not been approved for use in any conditions. Bendazac A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) available as an eye drop for the treatment of cataracts and as a topical cream for the treatment of dermatitis, eczema, hives, skin ulcers and other inflammatory skin conditions. Inclisiran A PCSK9-targeting short interfering RNA (siRNA) that lowers plasma LDL-cholesterol levels. Alirocumab A PCSK9 inhibitor used as an adjunct to manage heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia or clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in patients who require additional lowering of LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C). Evinacumab A monoclonal antibody targeted against angiopoetin-like protein 3 (ANGPTL3) used as an adjunct with other lipid-lowering therapies for the treatment of homozygous familiar hypercholesterolemia. Icosapent ethyl An ethyl ester of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) that reduces synthesis and enhances clearance of triglycerides that is used to treat patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia. Insulin glargine A modified form of long-acting or basal insulin used to control hyperglycemia in diabetes mellitus. Meglutol An 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... Sulodexide A drug used to treat chronic venous ulcers in the legs. Torcetrapib Investigated for use/treatment in peripheral vascular disease and hyperlipidemia. Anacetrapib Investigated for use/treatment in hyperlipidemia. Ginsenoside C Not Available Betaine A methyl group donor used for the treatment of homocystinuria to decrease elevated homocysteine blood levels. Benfluorex Benfluorex is an anorectic and hypolipidemic agent that is structurally related to fenfluramine. It was patented and manufactured by a French pharmaceutical company Servier. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommended... Poliglusam Poliglusam, 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... Evening primrose oil Evening primrose oil is used as part of over-the-counter dietary supplements. It is also used for the treatment of systemic inflammatory diseases and for women's health conditions such as cyclical...
