Coronary artery disease remains the No. 1 killer of both men and women in the United States. The correlation with hyperlipidemia is alarmingly clear: More than half of cases of heart disease are attributable to lipid abnormalities. The goal of this symposium is to emphasize the importance of controlling hyperlipidemia to reduce the incidence of heart disease. Epidemiologic studies have identified a number of traditional and emerging risk factors for coronary artery disease, and modification of these factors has been shown to be effective primary and secondary prevention. However, questions regarding primary prevention remain unanswered. For example, at what age should lipid-lowering therapy be started? In the first article in this symposium, I discuss the known risk factors for heart disease and offer a rational approach to risk assessment and treatment in individual patients.

HYPERTENSION HIGH CHOLESTEROL - (HYPERLIPIDEMIA) Overview There are two main lipids found in the blood, cholesterol and triglycerides , also known as serum lipoproteins . Cholesterol is an essential chemical within the body, without it we will die. Yet, if our blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides are too high, we are at risk for coronary artery disease which is a major cause of death in the United States today. Cholesterol is an essential element contained in all human cell membranes; it is a structural component of steroid hormones and bile acids. Triglycerides are important in helping to transfer energy from food into body cells. Lipoproteins are categorized based on how dense they are. Density is based on the amounts of cholesterol triglycerides and apoproteins. The densest and smallest are called high-density lipoproteins or

Coronary artery blockage Alternative names Return to top Multiple lipoprotein-type hyperlipidemia Definition Return to top Familial combined hyperlipidemia is an inherited disorder of high serum cholesterol or high blood triglycerides . People with this condition have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top This disease is genetic and inherited, although the specific defective genes have not been identified. The person's cholesterol or triglyceride levels become elevated during the teenage years and continue to be high throughout life. The types of elevated lipoproteins may vary between affected family members. Cholesterol deposits in the skin, called xanthomas, which are seen in other disorders of elevated lipoproteins are rarely seen in this disorder. This disorder predisposes the person to greater risk of early coronary artery disease and therefore, heart attacks. People with the condition have a higher rate of obesity and glucose intolerance.

Research Center Overview
In 2002, DBC Research Center significantly expanded our physical space and our research efforts when we moved into a new 22,000 square foot building, located on the DBC campus.
Goals of the Research Center
With a new executive director, Howard R. Knapp, M.D., Ph.D., the overall goal of the Research Center became an effort to bring the benefits of the newest medical research to patients and their physicians in the Billings area, and to provide a medical research focus that is both clinical and laboratory-based.
The Center is involved in phase I, II, III, and IV clinical trials in human participants. The clinical testing of experimental drugs is typically performed in three phases, each successive phase involving a larger number of people. Once the Food and Drug Administration has granted a New Drug Approval (NDA), pharmaceutical companies also conduct post marketing or late phase three/phase four studies. For a more complete description of each phase of testing, click here Unique to the Research Center facility is a state-of-the-art laboratory that is equipped and staffed to study lipids, nutraceuticals and other health related topics.

Almost 13 million American adults require drug therapy to meet the low-density lipoprotein goals set by the National Cholesterol Education Program. Attempts to achieve these goals through diet and exercise are often unsuccessful. Major studies in recent years have demonstrated that statins decrease low-density lipoprotein levels, coronary events and overall mortality. Statins are the most commonly prescribed lipid-lowering agents because they are effective, well tolerated and easy to administer. Niacin has beneficial effects on all of the main lipid components, and new extended-release tablets have fewer adverse effects. Fibrates remain the most effective agents in lowering triglyceride levels and should be limited to this use. Bile acid sequestrants are seldom prescribed because of their adverse gastrointestinal effects and cumbersome administration. (Am Fam Physician 2000;61:3371-82.) C oronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of death in the United States. Each year, 500,000 Americans die of this disease, and associated morbidity costs more than $200 billion annually.
