  Purpose

Ezetimibe has become the treatment choice for patients with sitosterolemia. Ezetimibe is an inhibitor of cholesterol absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. The purpose of this study is to determine if ezetimibe improves whole body plant sterol and cholesterol homeostasis.


Condition Intervention
Sitosterolemia
Drug: Ezetimibe

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Assessment of Sterol Metabolism in Sitosterolemia: A Pilot Study of Patients Treated With Ezetimibe

Further study details as provided by University of Manitoba:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma cholesterol level [ Time Frame: 8 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Plasma cholesterol level will be assessed by GC

  • Plasma sitosterol level [ Time Frame: 8 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Plasma plant sterol assessment using GC


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Cholesterol absorption [ Time Frame: 4 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Use stable isotope technique to assess cholesterol absorption

  • Cholesterol synthesis [ Time Frame: 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Use of stable isotope to assess cholesterol synthesis.
