Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors, also known as "statins," are used adjunctively to diet and exercise to treat hypercholesterolemia by lowering total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and triglycerides (TG) concentrations while increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) : Agam B.

Bansal, Manouchkathe Cassagnol. The lipid lowering agents are used to treat hypercholesterolemia and dyslipidemias. These agents are some of the most frequently used medications in the United States.

this lecture went into the conventional antilipidemic drugs, indicated when patients have high cholesterol levels (high LDL, low HDL, or high total cholesterol levels). there are five classes of antilipidemic drugs: niacin, fibrates, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, bile acid binding resins, and cholesterol absorption blockers.

Lowering cholesterol isn't the only benefit associated with statins. These medications have also been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. These drugs may help stabilize the plaques on blood vessel walls and reduce the risk of certain blood clots.

Antihyperlipidemic Drugs lower serum levels of cholesterol and various lipids. They are also called as lipid-lowering agents; these drugs provide effective treatment for hyperlipidemia (increased lipid level in the blood). The incidence of coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common cause of death among adults, is higher in people with hyperlipidemia.

High level of lipids and triglyceride. Classes. The several classes of hypolipidemic drugs may differ in both their impact on the cholesterol profile and adverse effects.

For example, some may lower the "bad cholesterol" low density lipoprotein (LDL) more so than others, while others may preferentially increase high density lipoprotein (HDL), "the good cholesterol". Clinically, the choice of an agent depends on the patient's.

Two antilipidemic drugs (clofibrate and benzofibrate) were found to decrease the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen, thereby enhancing oxygen release to tissues (Poyart et al., ; Perutz and Poyart, ). This in vitro “allosteric” effect of these drugs is inhibited by in vivo serum albumin.

The observed ALA were moderate compared to the reference drugs studied. Individual compounds in bark extracts ranged within ± – ± and ± – ± mg/g of extract. The extended‐release form of niacin seems to be as effective as plain niacin while producing less flushing and milder hepatic reactions.
