The safety, tolerability and biochemical efficacy of extended release niacin and laropiprant in a major randomised clinical trial
Niacin has been in clinical use for over 50 years and was the first drug shown in a randomized trial to improve outcomes after MI, but substantial uncertainty remains about its efficacy and safety in the context of current standard medical therapy.
This thesis explores the biochemical efficacy, tolerability and safety of extended release (ER) niacin/laropiprant in the large, randomized HPS2-THRIVE trial. Laropiprant is a prostaglandin D₂ receptor (DP1) antagonist which reduces the ma...Expand abstract
